The much-hyped Aamir Khan, Katrina Kaif, and Big-B starrer Thugs of Hindostan hit the theatres on 8 November 2018.
The film has been produced on an estimated budget of Rs 300 crore. With such a budget and a star-studded cast, the movie definitely raised audience expectations. Did it live up to them?
The initial reactions to the film are pouring in on social media and well... they don’t look so good. Check it out.

#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!— taran adarsh (@taran_adarsh) November 8, 2018
Gonna need some drugs to get over the Thugs— Rajeev Masand (@RajeevMasand) November 8, 2018
#ThugsofHindostan - Complete waste of Money, Talent & Resources, Aamir Khan weakest film this decade. Shoddy Screenplay, Mundane action sequences ,extremely lousy direction & a bygone story defines thugs of Hindostan. Not even massy enough. Rating- ?— Sumit kadel (@SumitkadeI) November 8, 2018

BIGGEST DISASTER OF THE YEAR
Such a bad film, Doesn't deserve to collect even 50rs forget abt 200cr or 300cr....
Film will Wrap up Under 180cr
BIGGEST DISASTER of @aamir_khan Career....
#ThugsOfHindostan - 2.5/5. #AamirKhan's unpredictable characterization doesn't work beyond a point. Tbe Big B & Fatima are there for the action. #KatrinaKaif is purely for glamor and some extraordinary dance moves in 2 songs. Such big names shdve delivered a far far better film.— Kaushik LM (@LMKMovieManiac) November 8, 2018
Netizens Join Critics, Offer Saridon
Netizens too expressed their disappointment with the film. Many made hilarious memes.

Gripping screenplay, terrific eerie moments, witty one-liners and electrifying performances by Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachhan... ??? deeply moving..., loved the film in entirety. Flawless. THUMBS UP #moviemandu #Nepal pic.twitter.com/zmR0MjXa0x
#ThugsOfHindostan delivers what it promised. King size action and entertainment from beginning to end. Incredible BGM. Aamir in epic form. Rest of characters are overshadowed. Second half could have been better but Aamir makes up for it. Firangi was on a roll ????— • T.O.H • (@mehdi_nisar1) November 8, 2018
