Thugs of Hindostan initial reviews: Fans and critics express disappointment

Irene MckinneyNov 09, 2018

This year's big release for India's Diwali festival, the seafaring song-and-dance fest with superstars Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan cost US$42 million (RM175 million), making it the most expensive movie to date in the Hindi-language industry.

Thugs of Hindostan is directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya and produced by Aditya Chopra. This is not the first time when a Bollywood movie has been hit by piracy.

And while Thugs of Hindostan has set off fireworks at the box-office, the film has apparently failed to impress the film critics and audiences alike. The ones who have watched it took to Twitter to slam it resoundingly and also posted an array of amusing memes.

People were very excited for the release of Thugs of Hindostan.

Taran's tweet about the movie got many reactions on Twitter, with some calling it a disastrous movie and wanting their money back.

In his review, Film critic and Trade analyst Taran Adarsh gave the film 2 stars and called it Disappointment.

The promotions were made unique by perfectionist Aamir Khan.

"#ThugsOfHindostan may reap the benefit of the holiday period + tremendous hype + impressive names in its cast..." #TOH is a golden opportunity lost, a KING-SIZED DISAPPOINTMENT!' With an excellent occupancy across the country, let's take a look at how the movie fared at the box office on its day 1. Some engrossing moments in the first hour, that's about it. Formula-ridden plot, screenplay of convenience, shoddy direction are the main culprits'. It remains to be seen in the coming days if it will live up to the hype it has created and if it will do well at the box office.

The trailer of Thug of Hindostan had the audiences divided.
