Movie Review : Thugs of Hindostan
Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan, Katrina Kaif, Fatima Sana Shaikh, Lloyd Owen
Director Vijay Krishna Acharya
Initially set in 1857, its all about fight between East India Company, represented by John Clive and Raunakpur ruler Mirzasaab, who and his son are killed, leaving the princess Safira as the lone survivor of the royal family, rescued by Khudabaksh (Amitabh), the trusted general. After 11 years, Firangi Mallah (Aamir Khan) and Surayya (Katrina Kaif) are introduced along with grown-up Safira. Firangi and Khudabaksh are contrast by nature, the former speaks big about himself while the later is known for his good deeds. Then we have some funny arguments, mismerising dance by Surayya and high voltage action sequences. Later both battle with British, one for money and the other one for loyalty.
Reasonably good performances, high production values and visually appealing sequences make TOH a worth watch once.
