Everyone is excited about the Thugs of Hindostan as the film brings together the two major titans of Indian cinema for the first time.
Here are the highlights of the Thugs of Hindostan Movie Review
Amitabh Bachchan like Khudabaksh outshines
Amitabh Bachchan plays Khudabaksh, a commander of Thugs, in the extravaganza of action, directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya. Big B's role but short lived stays with us throughout the film. His character like Khudabaksh is a sight to see and you can not miss the "contrast personalities" of the mega person's character, which reflects in his costume.
Aamir Khans Firangi is relatable
Aamir Khan plays the amoral, easy-going junior, Firangi, non-inspired-by-Jack Sparrow, whom Mallah sent to infiltrate them. The actor, like four, talks about some real things about survival, greed and loyalty. Firangi is treacherous yet sympathetic and reliable and his redemption gives an appealing story in the Thugs of Hindostan.
Fatima Sana Shaikh like Zafira is a sight to see
Fatima Sana Shaikh plays the role of Zafira in Thugs of Hindostan and she aces the appearance of a warrior thug. The Dangal girl triggers hoots when she gets on the big screens. Zafira is fiery and amazing. She is an extremely talented fighter and specializes in contravention of arrow and arrow. Zafira has perfect accuracy and she misses a goal ever. Fatima Sana Shaikh like Zafira gives power and freshness to the Thugs of Hindostan.
Katrina Kaif fails to impress
Katrina appears in a glamorous avatar along with her fellow star Aamir Khan, Amitabh Bachchan and Fatima Sana Shaikh. in the movie. In addition to the sparkling factor, Tiger Zinda Hai's actress has nothing to offer. Her character Suraiyya feels like an extended cameo as the audience will see her only in two songs. Her accent also lacks the eye of the bull. Sensuous Suraiya shakes her hips and appears to be used as a human shield by Firangi.
The East India company is portrayed as a naive gang of white men ready to shop something with.gold, taking us far from reality. The background game attracts, but not Vfx and locales compensate for the everyday script. Too many loopholes in script and continuity as well as logic. Too many plot twists do not even work in favor of the movie being disturbed.
