Thugs of Hindostan, the solo Diwali release, was one of the most awaited releases of this year. With an ensemble star cast including Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan, and Katrina Kaif, expectations from the film were sky high. The Vijay Krishna Acharya directorial, however, emerged as a disappointment, reportedly.

Though the trailer of Thugs of Hindostan intrigued the viewers and set hopes high, the reviews are contrary.

Film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh described the film as a “golden opportunity lost”.

“#ThugsOfHindostan may reap the benefit of the holiday period + tremendous hype + impressive names in its cast… But will find it difficult to sustain after the initial euphoria settles down… #TOH is a golden opportunity lost, a KING-SIZED DISAPPOINTMENT!” he wrote on Twitter.

He went on to call the film “DISAPPOINTING”. The film critic rated Thugs of Hindostan with 2 stars. “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…” the tweet read.
