Thugs Of Hindostan Trailer

Thugs Of Hindostan Trailer

Review Rowdy -

Review = After ROBOT 2.O, this one was the next highly anticipated movie of 2018. And, like the former, even this trailer is not up to the mark.

The movie looks like a routine struggle of independence (of course from British Rulers), with a touch of “Pirates of the Caribbean”. I am not able to fathom on which book or time period, has the movie set its premise.

For the first time in the history of Indian Cinema, 2 mega stars, like Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan, will be seen against each other, on the celluloid.   

Hence, the movie was in the spotlight since last 2 years, and if this is the final product, then I am skeptical about its success.

The project is backed by Yash Raj Films and as a part of the strategy; they have booked the entire 1 month slot with the multiplex owners. No other movie is allowed to release before a week and till after 3 weeks of TOH’s release.

Hence, I feel that, the movie will get more benefit of this embargo, than its content or hype.

After watching the trailer, I felt that, no hard work was put in developing the storyline or while executing the VFX. Especially, the VFX looks highly sub – standard and kiddish.

MAKERS, please note, while you are making a heavy use of the VFX, in any movie, it should not look like you have done that. The Effects must give the feeling of reality, otherwise, it’s of no use.

In the trailer, the way cannons are fired on a tower and the opening scene, where we are shown multiple boats sailing in the sea, everything looks utterly fake and other worldly.

Also, we have been seeing Aamir Khan in the same kind of roles (little funny and little chaalaak type) since ages. At one point, I felt that, Aamir is going to repeat the same disastrous acting, as he had done in MELA, almost 20 years back. I am highly disappointed seeing his character in the trailer.

Mr. Bachchan, on the other hand, resembles his avatar in MOHABBATEIN (The same PARAMPARA! ANUSHAASAN! PRATISHTHA! NIYAM! shit). He is playing his age, but his costume and dressing also resembles his avatar in EKLAVYA. Still, out of all the characters (there is one “sasta firangi” also in the movie) his character had an impact on me.

The entry of Fatima Sana Shaikh (“Zafira” in the movie) looked very similar to a fight sequence executed by Prabhas in BAHUBALI 2. I don’t know how she has performed in the movie.

The only saving grace or praise – worthy aspect of the trailer was the entry and facial expressions of actress Katrina Kaif.

Katrina ne sahi mein aag laga di trailer mein!

Overall, like many others, even I am highly disappointed with the trailer.

Also, since the project is helmed by Director Vijay Krishna Acharya, who had previously given us 2 most pathetic movies of Indian Cinema; DHOOM 3 and TASHAN, I have no expectations from the movie.

I am only requesting GOD for providing me the required strength, on 8th November, for bearing this probable torture!

My Review Of ‘Jagga Jasoos’

My Review Of ‘Jagga Jasoos’

Review Rowdy -

Plot: – Ranbir Kapoor is a school student and aspire to be a detective. He is in search of his missing father and Katrina Kaif and the supporting cast helps him in completing his mission.


Opinion: – If you are willing to patronize this movie, please carry atleast 2 tablets of ‘Saridon’ with you. It will help you in alleviating your headache. The movie is basically an ‘uncooked khichadi’ of ‘LA LA LAND’, ‘Alice in Wonderland’, ‘The Adventures of TINTIN’, ‘Barfi’ and some part of the plot also resembles ‘P.S. I Love You’. It is a task to bear this movie for 2 hours and 48 minutes. The only best part of the film is the last 10 mins proceeding towards the climax. The movie is shot in ‘Opera Style’ without paying any heed to the content and execution. There were around 80-90 patrons in the multiplex which got reduced to 40-50 post interval and till the climax we were around 8-10 people. I have never seen such a huge departure in any movie. The highlight of the movie was when Katrina Kaif addresses her audience (kids in the film) asking ‘Bore Ho gaye kya’ and the audience with me started yelling ‘Yes’ and ‘Humare Paise Wapas Do’ live in the multiplex. Even kids (which is projected as the target audience for this movie) will not enjoy this movie. I will only give brownie points to the cinematographer, to Pritam (Music Composer) and to Ranbir who have done a fantabulous job in this movie. Their talent was not used optimally due to a very weak script.



Performances: – Ranbir Kapoor is the soul of this movie. Whereas, Katrina Kaif was a complete misfit for this role. Anushka Sharma would have been a better choice for the movie. Saurabh Shukla and the rest of the cast have performed as expected. After a while, the audience gets least bothered about what the hell is going on screen. The movie is simply bore and a torture on mankind.


Direction & Other Technical Aspects : – I believe Anurag Basu became over-confident after the success of Barfi. His direction and the flow of the movie is pathetic and tests your patience level. Even many scenes in the background clearly seems fake and poorly edited. If they would have paid more money to the editor, he would have organized this ‘shit of a movie’ in a way which could have been bearable.


Rowdy Rating =  1.5 / 5 (It is my lowest rating till date. Please don’t waste your money in watching this flick).
