Thugs of Hindostan reviews are in. And they don’t look good. The star-studded movie that was supposed to be a blockbuster hasn’t quite proved to be one. It was perhaps the most hyped movie of the year so far. One of the reasons was its impressive cast that included Bollywood’s Mr. Perfectionist along with the veteran Mr. Bachchan, sultry Katrina, and Dangal-wonder Fatima Sana Shaikh. Also, Thugs of Hindostan bore striking resemblance to the Hollywood flick Pirates of the Caribbean. Well, comparing the two now would be an insult to Pirates franchise.
Movie released globally on November 8th. Even in Pakistan, there were high hopes that it will draw huge crowds. So much so that Universal Cinemas decided to run over 100 shows of the movie on opening weekend. Over 100. That’s a first in modern cinema history of Pakistan.
Before you go watch the movie, here are some of the reviews from Twitter:
Thugs of Hindostan Reviews on Twitter
Here are *some* of the tweets reviewing Thugs of Hindostan. Clearly, a majority of them are negative.
First up, a critic review that you should take seriously
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… 👎👎👎

And this one tells exactly what’s wrong with this movie
#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!
Ratings – 2/5

KRK wasn’t liking it either. You gotta believe him, for once
After watching full film #ThugsOfHindostan, I can say with 100% guarantee dat it’s the worst film ever made in Bollywd. It’s a crime to waste 300Cr+ on such a worst film. Full film is about @fattysanashaikh and she is the star of the film with a top class performance. 0* from me.

And take her seriously. SERIOUSLY!

And then they came for Mr. Perfectionist
No doubt Aamir Khan is a perfectionist, ruins Pirates of caribbean perfectly.

Aamir, what have you done?
#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- 🌟

Heard that Amir Khan has over acted a lot in #ThugsOfHindostan. He must be compensating for Katrina Kaif. 😁

Aamir Khan – You will forget Jack sparrow after watching FIRANGI Mallah in Thugs Of Hindostan.
— SALMAN (@BadassSalmaniac) November 8, 2018
Forgot Jack Sparrow yet? Ha! Carry on then…
Political. But pretty obvious.
Heard that #ThugsOfHindostan is so bad that the audience started watching PM’s demonetization speech on their phones.

One word to sum it all up. BORING
— Rohit Khilnani (@rohitkhilnani) November 8, 2018
Just stay at home and sleep
Movie #ThugsOfHindostan is so bad that Aamir Khan had to go on Coffee With Karan to promote it. Still falls flat on its face. Reading reviews and have decided not to watch it. Money saved.
