Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan starrer Thugs of Hindustan has received negative reviews and average ratings from critics like Taran Adarsh and others, who have described the movie as a big disappointment.

Thugs of Hindustan is an epic adventure movie that is set in 1795 and follows a band of thugs, who aspires to free Hindostan from the rule of the expanding British East India Company. The film boasts big names like Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan, Katrina Kaif, director Vijay Krishna Acharya and producer Aditya Chopra in its cast and crew, which had created a lot of hype and expectations from this flick. Aamir's Thugs of Hindostan funny memes.

But Thugs of Hindustan, which has hit the screens today, has failed to strike a chord with most of the film critics and audience, who called it disappointing after it failed to live up to their expectations. What has disappointed them the most is the direction and script of Vijay Krishna Acharya in the movie. They say that the director has really wasted the actors' talent popularity and whopping budget of Rs 300 crore.

We bring you some noted critics' verdict on the movie shared on Twitter. Continue to see them in Thugs of Hindustan review roundup:

#OneWordReview... #ThugsOfHindostan: DISAPPOINTING. Rating: ⭐️⭐️ 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...

#ThugsofHindostan 2.25/5. A big let down, too long and songs add to the boredom. Formulaic 2 core with hardly a plot line. Fed up of period action Azadi's v/s powerful British as enemy. Screenplay a mess. @aamir_khan does a Jack Sparrow act. Good visuals otherwise nothing in it.

#ThugsOfHindustan poised to be the biggest disappointment of 2018. Makes the same director's Tashan look like an instant classic. Besides the mighty @SrBachchan Thugs has nothing to offer except a hugely hammy @aamir_khan and two female props brought in for glamour.

#ThugsofHindostan - First half- Sir Bacchan entry is excellent, aamir few comedy scenes, thats about it. Let see how second half turns out to be. Disappointing affair till now. #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-

Almost an hour to the film, people are taking a break already as Vashmalle plays on. The connect in #ThugsOfHindostan missing still. Desperately in need of pace. But the film is loaded for sure. #ThugsOfHindostan catches pace only post #Vashmalle. And what a pace it takes. Excitement starts just now in the second half! When it is @SrBachchan and @aamir_khan , you cannot expect anything below superb acting. But @fattysanashaikh is the winner here. She turns desi Hawkeye, but man, you would love her moves and her action sequences. Saw the first 8am show of #ThugsOfHindostan and still can't figure out why I watched it. Such hype, such grandeur, such tremendous acting, but what happened to the direction and the script. Some in theatre did clap, but not so impactful. #disappointing @DMmovies

#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. #ThugsOfHindostan is very very poor, it is a waste of 300cr. Both Multiplex as well as Single Screen audience will reject it . "My request to Indian audience" Skips It & save your time & money & spend that money & time on your Family. 1*/5 Businesses Prediction 180-200cr.
