  • I thought it was a very good movie . And this is not the first movie of Aamir Khan . He is a real artist in what he does and his career is full of examples. For instance his recent movie Dangal was a real master piece . Why the short memory, why the hate .

  • Rajiv Masand is nothing but a jack a**. How can you rate this movie 3star. When this movie is tribute to the soldiers who lost their lives for us. And one who f***ed porkies by doing sergical Strick.

  • I watch the movie, nice and entertaining movie and was disappointed with Critic's who have under-rated the movie and very partial on reviews. It is more or less same with other movies of similar budget and much better than Ravneer's movies which are over exaggerated and over acting.

  • just waited for his review

  • I have seen the movie and i feeel i have seeen more bad movies than TOH .. and they were BLOCKBUSTERS .. this movie has the feel of hollywood movie .. firangi Malah is damn chameleon character Aamir is outstanding as Firangi ... Hate it or like it

  • The story is not so good, but I really enjoyed watching amit ji and aamir Khan together. Their acting and action of the movie is ultimate unlike the story of the movie.

  • The day I got to know the director is Vijay Krishna acharya I gave up.

  • Loda masand

  • Record 52 crore opening day... Better than zero.... Epic movie

  • The flop of this movie was because of Amir Khan. He got involved in dictating the director ,Vijay acharya, by the permission of aditya Chopra. He screwed up the director vision of the movie. He was supposed to be only the actor and no involvement with the director. His arrogance got involved and destroy the movie completely. Aditya took this guy Amir work as a tool to boost his film but little did he know that any movie directed by rajkumar hirrani will make anybody a star. Amir Khan is no director and he should only get involved in that kind of work when movies r produced by him.

  • 3/5. i am actually ok with the film. i liked the creative freedom the director has taken. and aamir sort of salvaged this film a bit.

  • Most of the people say it is a bad movie because most of them are saying it is a bad movie. Pathetic!

  • Obviously we didn't have any expectations from Vijay Krishna Acharya because of his limited range but what made Aamir sir and AB sir sign TOH?? And even after realizing the potential of the movie, why do such seasoned actors in such cases keep on praising the film till the release date ? Just to fool the public ? It's unbelievable !!

  • Chitty needs to burn this film in 3.0 😂

  • Maha bakwas movie....dont waste your time

  • The fact that Rajeev Masand can hardly move from his couch, while criticizing & mocking hard working people is the biggest irony. Movies are bad , but should be criticized by the people who could prove their talent too..

  • How much did you get paid for giving negative reviews ??? Indian people don't have the brains to understand a good movie.

  • It was an Amazing movie. Far better than any Hindi movie I watched in a long time !!

  • The movie wasn’t that bad

  • Public c hai.. Including myself. Aur ye c public ke saath jaake paisa bana rha hai Daal roti chalaane ke liye choron ki bhi tareef karo to chalega.

  • Ani ....dr. Kashinath is far better than this movie

  • घटिया क्रिटिक लोग, तुम्हारा कुछ नहीं हो सकता, तुम यूँही बकवास करने आए हो ज़िंदगी में, भगवान भी सोचता होगा क्या करूँ मैं इन बकवास लोगों का । ३ रुपये की औक़ात नहीं है तुम्हारी ओर रिव्यू के नाम पर बकवास कर रहे हो ३०० करोड़ की मूवी के बारे में, कभी तुम्हारे बाप ने भी देखें है ३०० करोड़ l मूर्ख लोग भेड़ों की तरह शुरू हो जाते है मैं मैं करने l जब तक तुम जैसे जहिल लोग हैं इंडिया में , इस देश का कुछ नहीं हो सकता, सही करते है नेता लोग तुम्हारे साथ, लूट लूट के खाते है तुम्हें तब तो तुम्हारी बोलती बंद हो जाती है, तब तो चुहे की तरह दुबक कर बैठ जाते हो उनके गुंडो के डर से । यहाँ पता है ना सब कलाकर(शरीफ़) लोग है, बोल दो जो मन में आए । तुम लोग सिर्फ़ ओर सिर्फ़ नेता लोगों से ही क़ाबू में आते हो ।

  • thugs of Cnn-news18 still shooting movie reviews in 480P 4:3 Format. grow up there are 8k cameras now

  • All nonsense critics are Toxic BUGS OF HINDOSTAN !!

  • Only Katrina can look the same in every movie whether it’s a modern girl in 2018 or a dancer from the 18th century lol.

  • Among all those mediocre garbage industry critics and sold out Intelligence less critics , Rajeev Masand is an only exception.

  • it was a boring movie. Two great moments about this movie was interval and it's ending.


  • Such a very nice Rest all talking politics

  • Fantastic review, you english speaking angrez.

  • just chill guys do some workout most amazing workout of a model @CtvY​

  • Football

  • Awesome movie.......4 star movie.... You can see all things which should be in good movie

  • Pls add subtitles also

  • Sorry 2 all you guys in shock hysteria having far too high expectations and crushing this movie.... I loved it. You just need to be open to a different experience than you are used to. The off the edge sense of humor and different strokes here could very well be a new type of cult. The pure ridiculousness of the English speaking hindi to each other is hilarious. Can't wait till the sequal. Wearing pink Gucci glasses in 1795... I love it. Watch it again🤓

  • It's not as bad as this man tells... The movie is perfectly entertaining.... 💖

  • I could write a better script taking a shit after eating a McDonald's mararaja Mac with extra cheese .......

  • Chutiya kahika

  • Abe bhaise dhang se dekhi hai movie

  • It was just a too ambitious project, bollywood is yet to reach that level where they can pull such a project off

  • Killing with review

  • Aamir Khan is the best actor in bollywood but katrina is an appalling actress she should never be cast alongside the likes of Aamir & Amitabh

  • British bhi hindi to boldegeye plse

  • Vijay Krishna Acharya ka naam sunte hi decide kar liya tha is movie par paise kharaab nahin karne hain 🤣🤣🤣

  • Flop movie....... Amir Khan flop

  • Saale kaale angrez Hindi mein boll.
