The trailer of the most awaited film of the year, Thugs of Hindostan, was released today by Yash Raj Films and it looks like an action-packed period drama. The film stars Aamir Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, Katrina Kaif, Fatima Sana Shaikh and Lloyd Owen in pivotal roles.
The story of the film takes us back to the year 1795 when the East India Company that came in for trade was on its way to rule India. Amitabh Bachchan is introduced first in the trailer as ‘Azaad’, who stands in the way of the British rule. Fatima Sana Shaikh as Zafira is seen on Amitabh’s side and also opposes the British rule in the trailer.
Then comes the showstopper Aamir Khan as Firangi, who is roped in by the British to capture Azaad. Katrina makes an appearance in the trailer too and sizzles with her superb dance moves. However, we do not get an idea of her role in the film. Last but not the least Lloyd Owen plays John Clive, the evil British officer.
Overall, the film looks stunning from the acting point of view, though it is early to give such an opinion. The action sequences do not look promising because of the mediocre CGI but the background music is up to the mark.
Here’s a look at the trailer:
No matter what the storyline is, the duo of Amitabh and Aamir will surely drag audiences to the theatres as the two share screen space for the first time. Looking at the trailer we can guess that the film has all the ingredients to emerge as a blockbuster. The film is directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya and is all set to hit the screens on November 8, 2018.
