Thugs of Hindostan Review
Story of the movie:
The story of the film revolves around Ronit Roy, a King of Raunakpur. He does not believe in slavery, and intends to fight the Britishers. Unfortunately for him, John Clive (Lloyd Owen) kills his son and doesn’t spare him either. The King’s daughter Zafira is witness to this atrocity and vows to avenge her family’s death. We are then introduced to Khuda Baksh (Amitabh Bachchan) who is a commander, who uses wily techniques (you’ve seen it before though) to take over British ships. Firangi Mallah (Aamir Khan) is then brought in to stop Khuda Baksh aka Azad. As a part of his plan, Firangi befriends Azad. For what happens next, you’ve to see the movie.
Aamir Khan has delivered a good performance. While, Amitabh Bachchan seems a miscast at some places but nails some scenes. Katrina Kaif is limited to two songs and a few lines of dialogue, while Fatima Sana Shaikh has a very few dialogues but she’s good. While, others include Ronit Roy, Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub and Lloyd Owen were okay in their roles.
