Movie Review : Thugs Of Hindustan

Thugs Of Hindustan the much awaited movie of the year released today with a lot of anticipation….But what we get is an extremely averageTOH Review movie which is high on spectacular Action (Most of it is mindless) and amazing CGI.

Vijay Krishna Acharya the director spent more on the technical aspect of the movie to make it a spectacle…the action is world class, the CGI is Hollywood Standard, the cinematography by Manush Nandan is top notch and the Production Design is out of this world but unfortunately the STORY is missing…written by Vijay himself the movie has a very 80’s revenge drama feel what with a climax song as well, which was so rampant in the 80’s…the plot is immensely predictable and the characters extremely clichéd and the movie just goes down the drain in the second half…even the dialogues feels dated…

Other than Aamir Khan rest of the ensemble casts performance seems forced and average, even of Amitabh Bachchan, who seems repeating his Khuda Gawah act…Aamir Khan saves the day with his performance as Firangi as the character is extremely edgy and unpredictable and Aamir seems to be enjoying the act….The second actor who kind of manages her own in the mayhem is Fatima Sana Shaikh as Zafira….Katrina Kaif is there just to add the glamour quotient, she is precisely there for 2 songs.

The movie is devoid of any emotional quotient and you never connect to the movie till the end which was so essential for a patriotic driven theme…the other problem of the movie is the run time of 2 hrs 45 mins…it could have been easily 30 mins less…Vijay had such brilliant opportunity of fabulous ensemble cast, excellent technical team and a banner like Yashraj to back his vision but alas as his previous outing Tashan and Dhoom3 this movie also is a dud…I would say an opportunity lost….I will go with 2 stars…watch it at your own risk…

Movie Rating: (2 / 5)
