The film’s teaser and trailer were quite grand. For the first time, Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan are also working together to watch the screen. Whether on the occasion of Diwali, this movie will be able to hit the hearts of the box office and the audience, let’s know how this film is finally made …
What is the story of the movie?
The story of the film is of 1795 in India when India was ruled by the East India Company, and many states were in the hands of the British. But Ranakpur was a state which was far from the hold of the British. The commander of the Khadbakhsh ship (Amitabh Bachchan) took care of his Mirza Sahab (Ronit Roy) and the entire territory. For some reasons, Mirza Sahib dies and the full responsibility of his daughter Jafira (Fatima Sana Shaikh) comes into the hands of Khutbahs. In the meantime, the story grows 11 years ahead and then there is the entry of Firangi Mallah (Aamir Khan), who can swear by anybody by swearing by his grandmother. His motive is only one, earn money.
Meanwhile, there is a meeting of God Buksh and Firangi Voyage. A twist in the story comes when the General Clive of the East India Company begins to worry about them all. Suraiya (Katrina Kaif) works for the heart of the English rulers. There are many turns in the story and eventually, a result comes out which will have to watch the movie to know.
Why can I see the movie
The story of the film is interesting but the direction is weak. The speed of the story becomes dull in many places. It could be done better. However, the way the 17th century has been shown is amazing. Amitabh has once again excelled in acting. Aamir Khan has tried hard to win the heart. Which has also been proved wrong? There are so many sequels that are filmed between the two.
In the film, Fatima Sana Sheikh has made an intuitive performance. At the same time, the rest of the film like Ronit Roy Ela Arun’s work is also good. Katrina Kaif’s role is very low, but right there, Mohammed Zeeshan Ayub has done a fine job.
Before the release, the film was being talked about VFX that there was a lack of it. But while watching the movie, good VFX is available. The background score of the film is also good. Aamir and Mohammed Zeeshan Ayub laugh at many occasions due to which the fun of watching the movie is even better. Prior to the release, it was said that Aamir’s character resembles the English film Pirates of the Caribbean while seeing it, it does not feel like this at all.
Weak Links: Direction Made Frustrating
The weak link of the film is its length, which is quite long known. If it was made smaller it would have been more interesting in the film. Before the release of the film, its songs have not been so popular that due to which the ring was supposed to be made, it has not been made. During filming, big songs have been shown which should have been shortened. The climax could be better and better. The direction of Vijay Krishna Acharya is weak. This movie could have been saved in the direction by directing. The story of the film is also such that everyone may not like it. Especially audiences watching English movies cannot influence the effect of the film.
The Thugs of Hindostan is set in a budget of about 240 crores. The film has also been released on a large scale. It has got around 7000 screens worldwide. If the news is to be believed then the film’s satellite and digital rights have already been sold for one and a half crore. In a way, the big weekend can earn around 180 to 200 million films. There is also the possibility of opening 45 to 50 crores on the first day at the box office. Professionally, you can say that the Thugs of Hindostan is a safe deal for Yash Raj Films.
