Aamir Khan movies are hugely anticipated by the people of India, and for good reason. He has given us critical and financial hits like ‘3 Idiots’, ‘Taare Zameen Par’ and ‘Dangal’. And for his 2018 venture, since he was teaming up with Amitabh Bachchan, the hype was through the roof.
However, after the first trailer hit the cyber-space, many were disappointed by the overall look and feel of the movie. A huge section of the internet was convinced that it was a rip-off of the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ franchise. And going by the initial responses, they weren’t wrong.
Everyone, from the aam janta to movie reviewers, were dejected after watching ‘Thugs of Hindostan’. Here are their unfiltered reactions:
1. That sounds bleak.
#ThugsOfHindostan story is totally confusing & irritating. In other word it's torture for 3hour.
2 hours length could have saved the film.
1st half is somehow tolerable,
but 2nd half totally poor.

2. Desperate times.

All that glitters is NOT gold… Holds true for #TOH… Some engrossing moments in the first hour, that’s about it… Formula-ridden plot, screenplay of convenience, shoddy direction are the main culprits… 👎👎👎

4. Now the ship has sailed.
Direction is very poor by Vijay Krishna. Script is also below average!! Some scenes are very illogical. Editing work is also very bad. It could've been 20 minutes short!!

6. Jokes are not a good substitute for dialogues.
Who the hell wrote the dialogues of Aamir Khan ? ☹️☹️
His role is well acted but seems very bad just because of bad jokes and punchlines.#ThugsOfHindustan

7. Woah! That bad huh?
Jaani Dushman seems like a better movie now 😶 after watching Thugs of Hindostan. I rarely use twitter but today I need my refund from the makers of this worst movie. #ThugsOfHindustan #AamirKhan @SrBachchan @aamir_khan @fattysanashaikh

13. Words of wisdom.
Things you can do instead of watching 3-hr long #ThugsOfHindostan:
1. Book tickets & surprise your sister by visiting on Bhaidooj
2. Met up with childhood friends & have a beer
3. Mark 2 yrs of DDemonetisation by standing in ATM line for 3 hr
4. Watch ZeroTrailer57 times#CP

14. So, the only way to watch this movie is with alcohol? Got it.

16. This should’ve been a disclaimer before the movie.
Victor has directed dhoom 3 and tashan. What were we expecting? #ThugsOfHindostan

17. This review session is turning out to be brutal.
#ThugsofHindostan – Complete waste of Money, Talent & Resources, Aamir Khan weakest film this decade. Shoddy Screenplay, Mundane action sequences ,extremely lousy direction & a bygone story defines thugs of Hindostan. Not even massy enough. Rating- 🌟
