#TrailerTalk – ‘Thugs of Hindostan’ may not live up to expectations

Thugs of Hindostan (TOH) is one of the most-awaited films of 2018. However, the trailer of the film may leave you disappointed.

The magnum-opus created quite an intrigue when leaked photos of the actors emerged earlier this year, followed by series of posters introducing the leading characters.

The makers finally dropped the trailer of the film and gave a glimpse in the world of “thugs.”

Set in 1795 India, TOH is outlined in the British rule where thugs are gearing up to fight against the East India Company. The commander of the pack, Khudabaksh [Amitabh Bachchan] leads the gang at sea by fighting with their enemy in some extremely high-octane combat. Accompanying him is Zafira [Fatima Sana Shaikh], a skilled archer/warrior determined to overthrow the new regime.

Enter Firangi Mallah [Aamir Khan], an infamously notorious thug who is hired by the British to challenge Khudabaksh. What follows is an adventurous saga of patriotism, deceit and… thugs.

Rating Prediction  [3 / 5]
The characters seem a little caricature-ish that are less than engaging. Moreover, a dialogue or two to establish the female leads would’ve been nice; the trailer shows them merely as props in supporting roles.

TOH will release on 8th November, 2018.
