Khudabaksh played by Amitabh Bachchan is her guardian. Aamir Khan aka Firangi Mallah has various layers on his character like a selfish and cunning person. Katrina Kaif a big renown actress has nothing much to do in a movie and has very less screen presence.

At this age, Amitabh Bachchan performing stunts and wearing those heavy costumes with two swords is remarkable. He is a true legend. The soul of the movie is no doubt, Amitabh Bachchan. The character of Firangi Mallah played by Aamir Khan has lots of layers and Aamir Khan has done full justice with it.

Things which disappointed most are a predictable story, weak screenplay, and bad direction. Music is also not good. Visual effects and background score is good. This movie Thugs of Hindostan has beautifully captured scenes and actions.

No other movie releasing today, and with the humongous fan following of superstars Aamir Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, and Yash Raj Films, Thugs Of Hindostan will definitely do good business. If you have not watched the trailer till now, watch it here.

Overall Thugs Of Hindostan is a one time watch because of its actions, visual effects and of course Amitabh Bachchan.
