#ThugsOfHindostan - 2.5/5. The most ordinary #AamirKhan film in a long long time. It's a very average tale of Indian rebels (thugs) fighting for their freedom from the British. Very long at close to 2 hrs 45 mins. Grand big budget action adventure but the content isn't gripping. Aamir's unpredictable characterization doesn't work beyond a point. The Big B & Fatima are there for the action. #KatrinaKaif is purely for glamor and some extraordinary dance moves in 2 songs. Such big names shdve delivered a far far better film. Hope #Aamir gets back to making epic films of substance, like he regularly does. He can be excused of this one strictly average film. Even the biggest slip once in a while. Hope they don't make a sequel to this, as hinted in the end On the promising side, it's a film catered to single screens and mass audiences. They may still like it - old fashioned sentiments, freedom struggle, big stars, grand action etc. etc. Majority collections shd come from there, if the film has to do well.

This doesn't happen too often...but I walked out of #ThugsofHindostan .... don't know what happens in the climax, although I don't think that would change my opinion about the film. So bland and boring it is. Multiplexes hiked the ticket rates for this? And for heaven's sake, what was Katrina Kaif doing in this film and I reckon both Aamir Khan and Big B lost their senses trying to make this work. After a point, I was rooting for Clive to be ruthless and give me Azaadi from having to sit through the film
The trIler of #ThugsOfHindostan never excited me and same happened with the film. Lavish production but the film lacks basic emotions and proper flow. Second half ws dreadful and illogocal @SrBachchan was the real hero and at this age he is good What a waste #KatrinaKaif was When the narration and emotional connect goes for a toss even the likes of #AmitabhBachchan and #AamirKhan cannot save a film like #ThugsOfHindostan What an utter waste of money. Loved the BGM and @fattysanashaikh
First half ends up in a cliffhanger. Undoubtedly, Amitabh Bachchan is the show stealer so far. Loved it. Waiting for the tables to turn in second hour #ThugsOfHindostan
Review Ram @MovieReviewRam
#ThugsOfHindostan - Interval - Characters are re-established multiple times. @aamir_khan & @fattysanashaikh are impressive. BGM is terrific. @SrBachchan is sadly old to perform stunts. Decent script but very slow paced. There are a few whistle-worthy moments. 'Watchable' so far.
It's interval. How good was Aamir and Bacchan. The BGM and action on point. Aamir is rocking big time. Ppl will enjoy his role. Proper masala movie with great visuals and epic action #ThugsOfHindostan Hope second half is a good follow up
#ThugsOfHindostan review 2.5/5. Decent Just ok. Very ordinary story. Screenplay just ok. BM is Good. Aamir-Amitabh combo of action scene only lifeline of film.Only #Suraiyya one song is good. other Music are poor. Overall Decent If you aamir fan you can watch this film one time
#ThugsOfHindostan review : #TOH is a colossal disappointment! Screenplay is illogical, dialogues even more pathetic. Aamir and Big B = GOOD and they try to be the saving grace but they remain as caricatures! VFX and fight sequences are very bad! Big debacle! @yrf Ratings - 2/5

Interval at #ThugsOfHindostan Extremely disappointing so far. Bad dialogs, forced laughs, absolutely nothing works until now :( Let's see how the 2nd half pans out, very little to look forward to to be true...

Amitabh Bacchan's Entry is EPIC BAAP #ThugsOfHindostan Everytime Amitbh is Coming on screen he is lighting it up.... Where as Aamir's Comedy is not at all working. #ThugsOfHindostan
