Thugs of Hindostan has mostly perceived bad reviews from critics. Indian Express film censor Shubhra Gupta, in her review, wrote, “As we slip into Thugs of Hindostan, we design a rousing story of thuggery and patriotism, since that’s what a name suggests. You also design a jot of peculiarity filmmaking since we can’t get some-more A-list than Yash Raj Films, Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan. With dual large marquee names entrance together for a initial time, a shade should have crackled. But there is not even a flicker. What we get instead is zero though a large cherry-picking craving from large entertainers of a past, many of them YRF’s own. Not usually do we finish adult picking adult on past films, scenes and references, we are left struggling with staleness and boredom. The essay is shockingly pedestrian.”
Going by a reviews, it looks a like a tough tour forward for a Vijay Krishna Acharya directorial. Will it continue to woo a audience? Only time will tell.
