Producer: Aditya Chopra
Writer: Vijay Krishna Acharya

Raja Sen | Hindustan Times: 1/5
Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan’s film is Pirates Of The Caribbean without pirates or Caribbean. It is a film so dull and unoriginal that it can only inspire the shrugs of Hindustan ... Full Review

Rachit Gupta | Times of India: 2.5/5
The film feels a little too long, blame it on weak editing. The grand canvas of the film does hold sway in terms of the visual experience, but at the end, this one is all show and shallow in substance ... Full Review

Kunal Guha | Mumbai Mirror: 2.5/5
Given how long India was colonised, a fantasy tale of retribution would be suitably gratifying as it touches a distinct patriotic sentiment. But since this one drags along as if this freedom struggle was playing out in real time, the inevitable triumph barely hits the spot ... Full Review

Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: 1/5
Thuggery on a large scale, with viewers at the receiving end. Not only do you end up picking up on past films, scenes and references, you are left struggling with staleness and boredom ... Full Review

Shilajit Mitra | The New Indian Express: 1.5/5
Film lacks the pace, thrill and scale of an action-adventure epic ... Full Review

Rohit Vats | News18: 2/5
Thugs Of Hindostan may satiate your need for entertainment this Diwali, but overall, it’s a solid case of great boast, little roast ... Full Review

Rajeev Masand | News18: 2/5
Not every film needs to be uplifting, inspiring, or even fun. But watching a movie shouldn’t feel like you’re serving a jail term either ... Full Review

Saibal Chatterjee | NDTV: 2.5/5
Big, bloated, bombastic, Thugs Of Hindostan is a period saga that banks solely upon action and spectacle for impact ... Full Review

Bollywood Hungama: 2/5
THUGS OF HINDOSTAN has some engrossing moments in the first half, that's about it. The post-interval portions are an absolute downer. The plot is formulaic, while the screenplay is riddled with cinematic liberties ... Full Review

Taran Adarsh: 2/5
DISAPPOINTING. 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 ... Full Review

Umesh Punwani | Koimoi: 2/5
After Dhoom 3, Vijay Krishna Acharya does something similar - visually brilliant but technically a sinking ship ... Full Review

Mike McCahill | The Guardian: 3/5
Bollywood’s biggest budget to date and a megastar cast ensure this irreverent romp through historical inaccuracy doesn’t lose anything in translation ... Full Review

Joe Leydon | Variety: 3/5
Vijay Krishna Acharya's expensive and exuberant Bollywood masala delivers the goods as a satisfying popcorn epic ... Full Review

Namrata Joshi | The Hindu: 2/5
vapid, predictable and pointless ... Full Review

Shilpa Jamkhandikar | Reuters: 1.5/5
“Thugs of Hindostan” is a sinking ship, and not even Aamir Khan and his Midas touch can salvage it ... Full Review

Sukanya Verma | Rediff: 1/5
Neither Aamir's hard-at-work whimsicality nor Amitabh Bachchan's stoic presence can salvage a second of this bloated, blundering bore ... Full Review

Rohini Nair | FirstPost: 3/5
Thugs of Hindostan is Bollywood having a blast (quite literally, in some moments!). If its no-holds-barred adoption of the commercial Hindi entertainer's elements can be a flaw at times, for the most part, it works in the film's favour ... Full Review

Meena Iyer | DNAIndia: 2.5/5
Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan fail to save this majestic ship from sinking ... Full Review

Suhani Singh | India Today: 1.5/5
Thugs of Hindostan, starring Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan fails to impress and is an exhausting action adventure ... Full Review

Udita Jhunjhunwala | Live Mint: 2/5
Too many bugs with these thugs. Aamir Khan-Amitabh Bachchan pairing is Thugs of Hindostan's one redeeming quality ... Full Review

Nandini Ramnath | Scroll: 2/5
Aamir Khan is the saving grace in a trite, uninvolving film ... Full Review

Mohar Basu | Mid-Day: 2/5
Undeniably, majestic movie experiences are created by filmmakers and in Thugs of Hindostan, Vijay Krishna Acharya makes a fatal mistake - he takes his audience for granted ... Full Review

Devesh Sharma | Filmfare: 2.5/5
We all like swashbucklers and despite the Pirates Of The Caribbean overtones, it could yet have been an engrossing film if it was edited properly ... Full Review

Baradwaj Rangan | Film Companion: 2/5
A Dull Attempt At A Masala Potboiler That Hopes Star Power Will Trump The Script. The coming together of Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan promises fireworks, but this wannabe epic is a damp squib ... Full Review

Rahul Desai | Film Companion: 1/5
Thugs of Hindostan is the Bollywood manifestation of Halloween – an amusing, self-gratifying but altogether pointless fancy-dress ball designed to trick audiences under the guise of treating them ... Full Review

IANS | Sify: 3.5/5
Aamir Khan steals the show. A sprawling, ambitious 164-minute epic action adventure ... Full Review

Economic Times: 2.5/5
Good-looking film, but poor screenplay can't save the drowning ship. While the production design is mesmerising, the script is way too predictable ... Full Review

Keyur Seta | Cinestaan: 2.5/5
The Vijay Krishna Acharya directorial is nothing more than a masala entertainer narrated on a grand scale ... Full Review

Sneha May Francis | Masala: 1.5/5
Thugs of Hindostan is all fluff and no stuff. Had the filmmakers invested the money where it mattered this movie would’ve been something spectacular ... Full Review

India Glitz: 2.5/5
Thugs of Hindostan though high on production values and performances, fails for its weak plot. Lack of twists and turns makes the film a dull watch ... Full Review

Vishal Verma | Glamsham: 1.5/5
Authenticity, dialect, costumes ( Aamir jackets are made from denim material), mass appeal, expected confrontation between Big B and Aamir, patriotism, nothing absolutely nothing hits the core ... Full Review

Manisha Lakhe | Now Running: 1/5
The story is straight from the bottom of the creative keg, and they take 164 minutes to bore you to death. This attempt to pirate the Caribbean franchise fails so badly, it does not blow up, the audience kicks itself to death ... Full Review

Ankur Pathak | The Huffington Post: 1/5
This Aamir Khan-Amitabh Bachchan Starrer Is So Awful, It Feels Like A Parody Of Itself. Katrina Kaif's midriff gets much more attention than her character arc while Amitabh Bachchan hams through this snoozefest ... Full Review

Hannah Rachel Abraham | The Week: 2.5/5
Amitabh, Aamir keep 300-crore ship afloat ... Full Review

Raya Ghosh | Peeping Moon: 2.5/5
Old wine in a new battle for Aamir and Big B’s film ... Full Review

Ashwin Bharadwaj | Lens Men Reviews: 2/5
Thugs of Hindostan has its moments of commercial high. But it just couldn’t build on such scenes to deliver a movie that is beyond a Diwali entertainer ... Full Review

Suparna Sharma | Asian Age: 1.5/5
Lots of big-big, boring-boring stuff happens. Aamir Khan is good in a very unmemorable way ... Full Review

Poulomi Das | Arre: 1/5
Vijay Krishna Acharya's Thugs of Hindostan is one of Bollywood’s most unambitious and derivative films; it redefines the idea of an epic disaster. It’s a frightening love-child of Mohenjo Daro and Mangal Pandey — only a thousand times worse ... Full Review

Meetu | Wogma: 3/5
Thugs of Hindostan includes enough of the trappings to make you cringe and yet manages to keep you entertained ... Full Review

Behind Woods: 2.5/5
Stunts and performances make the not-so-engaging 'Thugs Of Hindsotan', watchable ... Full Review
