Thugs of Hindustan Story
The movie Thugs of Hindustan tells the story of 1795, when the British rule over all the princely states of India and their eyes on the remaining princely states. Such a state occupy Ronakpur by British commander John Clive (Lloyd Owen) fraudulently. He kills the Nawab Nirbah Mirza’s (Ronit Roy) family, but his daughter Jafira (Fatima Sana Sheikh) is taken away by the faithful of the state Khudabaksh Azad (Amitabh Bachchan). For nearly a decade, they hides and then they guerrilla war waged against the British. In this battle, Jafira is also with him to take revenge for her family.
Troubled by the growing power of Azad, the British find a vicious man to beat him in the same style. His quest is fulfilled on Fandialji (Aamir Khan). Firangi is a small thief who lives in Awadh, who is in the company of earning money in any way. He works to catch the thugs for the British. At the same time, Suraiya (Katrina Kaif) is a dancer. Firangi is hopeful of it. According to the plan of the British, the firang becomes involved in becoming the informer of the British in the army of thugs. Does the firang fulfill the plans of the British? Or does he even cheat them? You will find the answer in this movie.
Seeing Amir and Amitabh on the screen is not less than a treat for their fans. Amitabh Bachchan has played the role of a great action sequence in this age. Their battle scenes on water vessels are tremendous. Mr. Perfectionist Aamir is completely rumored in his role as usual. He has played the character of a cheat trickster. Fatima Sana Sheikh also got another big movie at the beginning of the rivalry after the riots. The real heroine of the film is the same. Katrina Kaif has definitely received very little footage in the film. It’s limited to just two songs. In the role of John Clive, Lloyd Owen is also very strong.
For the first time, Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan were discussing being based on the best-seller novel Confessions of a Thug, the first British officer of the Thugs of Hindostan, Philip Midoz Taylor. But now the film is being fully imagined based. However, after watching the movie trailer, Fans compared the film to Pirates of the Caribbean and compared Aamir Khan to Capt Jack Spiro, that is, John Deep. In some scenes, there is also the indigenous version of Amir Jack. Occasionally the film looks like the Desi Pirates of the Caribbean, then some action sequences of battle seem to be copies of Bahubali film.
Direction of Thugs of Hindostan
Vijay Krishna Acharya, director of the film, has written a lot of hard work to add a break of brick somewhere to write the script of his film, but regret that he could not handle it properly. The story of the film is quite weak. At the same time, even in the direction of Dhoom, 3 magic does not wake up. In the first half, the film looks a bit fine, but in the second half the story becomes cumbersome. There is also some suspense in the film, but it does not affect you. You already know the story of the film. In the film, Aamir Khan cheats both the thugs and the British so many times that you keep thinking till the end that he cheated on the last? But in Climax, you know that Aamir has cheated the audience with beautiful sets, big starcars and big water ships this time!
A lot of the film has been shot in the Mehrangarh fort of Jodhpur. In addition, the ship’s fight scenes were shot in Malta. Manush Nandan’s cinematography is amazing, which makes you amazed. The fight scenes, especially on water vessels, are quite exciting. The set of films is quite grand. But in 1795, it was probably in his desire to show a grand manner, its budget reached around 350 crore. At the same time, the length of a three-hour film on a weak story is also quite high.
Why You Should See It?
Ajay-Atul has given the music of the film. Although all three songs are not something special, any song from the film is not included in the top chart of Radio Mirchi. The film has received 6.2 out of 10 ratings on IMDB. Despite the presence of big stars, the weak script and story of the Thugs of India disappoint you. If you are an awesome fan of Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan, then you can look at this movie for just a time pass.
