Thugs of Hindostan: reasons why Aamir Khan, Amitabh Bachchan film didn’t work

Thugs of Hindostan opened to some really negative reviews, not just by the critics but also by the audience who went enthusiastically to watch the film in theatres. It being an Aamir Khan (read Mr Perfectionist) film people had a lot of expectations. After films from Aamir Khan gems like Taare Zameen Par, PK, 3 Idiots, Talaash, one expected more. He remains one of the finest actors we have in Indian cinema but Thugs of Hindostan was a disappointment. The mundane script was another failure.

The story of Thugs of Hindostan begins right from the 5 minutes of the start. All three, Aamir, Amitabh and Fatima create a fight on the white people, that drives them off their lands did not seem original or new. The fluctuating character of Firangi Malla (Aamir Khan) was a poor choice. One moment he’s a British loyalist who seeks nothing but just money. In the other moment, he is a part of the Azad army.

Thugs of Hindostan Movie is not the Diwali gift one wished for. Katrina Kaif in a cameo had the gorgeous actress to be seen in a mere extended cameo. She was seen in the scene only for a Bollywood number and after the song is over, she vanishes into the thin air. Katrina Kaif fans were looking for more.

East India Company depicted as mindless rulers naïve enough to let their potential enemies dance in front of them. It was a massive goof-up in Thugs of Hindostan. Despite of recognising Zafira and Firangi by face, Clive lets them dance in his own court only to let them point a gun towards him. Zafira seemed like a grown-up woman who requires ‘Hifazat’ all the time. Fatima’s character in Thugs of Hindostan is shown as ferocious, menacing as an archer and as a fighter. She still needed Firangi’s Hifazat at the first place.

All these flaws and many more got the film to fail at the box office.
