After a long wait the maker of Thugs of Hindostan has finally released the trailer of the movie starring Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan, Fatima Sana Shaikh and Katrina Kaif. The trailer release date also marks the birth anniversary of Yash Raj Films' founder, Yash Chopra.
The Three minutes 33 seconds trailer shows the movie is set in 1795 the East India Company who came to trade in India has now on its way to rule it. Amitabh Bachchan who is playing the character of Azaad, is determined to free the country with, Zafira , played by Fatima Sana Shaikh who is an excellent archer.
To capture them British have hired the biggest Thug Firangi (Aamir Khan). As the trailer progresses, Firangi takes sides with Azaad and says, "Abhume Azaad ke saath rehna hai, Azaad banna hai." Is he actually with Azaad or is it his strategy? Katrina Kaif also makes an appearance in the trailer,but we aren’t told much about what she’s doing in the film.
The visual effects in the film don’t look so realistic as we expected from such big budget movie.
On Sunday, the makers released Aamir's first look from the film. In the motion poster, Aamir is dressed in a green jacket with a hat and red-tinted sunglasses, riding a horse. He looks mischievous as he poses with a salute. Later, Aamir dropped the film's official poster, which has the stellar cast — Aamir, Amitabh, Katrina and Fatima — in a boat, all geared up to fight the enemy as the world collapse behind them. Though Amitabh’s Khudabaksh, Katrina’s Suraiyya and Fatima’s Zafira look fierce and battle ready in the poster, Aamir’s Firangi Mallah wears an amused look.
Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan will be sharing the screen space for the first time in Thugs of Hindostan. Khan and Kaif have earlier worked together in Dhoom 3 which was also directed by Acharya. Thugs of Hindostan is Fatima Sana Shaikh’s second film.The actor gained much popularity after she played the role of Geeta Phogat in 2016’s Dangal.
Directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya, Thugs of Hindostan releases on November 8.
