Bollywood's answer to Pirates of the Caribbean, the swashbuckling, star-studded Thugs of Hindostan sails into cinemas tomorrow, battling British colonisers on a quest for loot and box office records. The film has been directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya and produced by Aditya Chopra of Yash Raj Films. On the other hand, Aamir Khan fans are confident that this film will meet the expectations and emerge as the biggest hit of Indian box office. Starring Aamir Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh in lead roles, the adventure drama is expected to write new records for a Bollywood film.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh has stated this film as totally disappointing. Aamir Khan is a thug who is appointed by a British officer to stop Khudabaksh in his mission. Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan are also trending on the micro-blogging site. Taran Adarsh tweeted, 'All that glitters is NOT gold.
He also tweeted, #ThugsOfHindostan may reap the benefit of the holiday period + tremendous hype + impressive names in its cast.
Thugs Of Hindostan is releasing this Thursday and there is an impeccable buzz around it. Some engrossing moments in the first hour, that's about it... Shoddy screenplay, mundane action sequences, extremely lousy direction and a bygone story. #TOH is a golden opportunity lost, a KING-SIZED DISAPPOINTMENT!' "The actor is known for springing in surprises and him being a part of the film makes the chances of Thugs of Hindostan being a success at the ticket counters even higher", suggested Johar.
