Bollywood’s to- be- blockbuster Thugs of Hindostan had its trailer launch on Thursday.
The first look of the characters had already generated widespread anticipation after they were revealed earlier this month. Starring Bollywood biggies Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan, Fatima Sana Sheikh and Katrina Kaif, the setting of the period film have already aroused viewers’ excitement and trade pundits are already setting exorbitant collection targets from the film.
And if the trailer is any indication of what the movie might reveal, then Thugs of Hindustan can sure deliver the fireworks this Diwali. In fact, the trailer makes for one completely absorbing watch and the ruggedness that the film demands have been delivered to perfection by each of the actors within the ambit of their characters.
Big B Amitabh Bachchan exudes his trademark charisma within the strength that he exudes as Khudabaksh, the one and only Master of Thugs. And by his side Fatima Sana Sheikh as the trusted lieutenant also unveils a reign of power, as she lives up to her projection as rising from the embers.
But the thunder is delivered by Aamir Khan as the Firangi Mallah, as a party to the antagonist who, however, appears to change sides by the end of the clip. Katrina Kaif, however, has only a fleeting appearance and looks every part the sensuous dancer Suraiyya she is reported to be enacting in the film.
Releasing on November 8, the trailer has done much to up the ante and now we can’t be waiting to watch the movie which will be a sure fire Diwali treat!
