  • Thank you for the honest review..

  • 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.

    • Go and see Taare Zameen par

  • 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

  • Bechod chutia filmein hi bnayengey indians

  • I’d rather be watching any of those Amol Palikar’s or farooq sheikh’ package with cup of tea

  • somewhere your review and ratings do not go hand in hand..itni ghatia film bolte ho..aur stars 2 ?

  • 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 .......

    • Likhi?

  • 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.

  • failure is a part of life,whatever amir movies is..flop or hit.i will always love amir khan and amitab.

  • Basically, it was a copy of multiple films. Director of the movie thought that Indian audience don't know anything, and even if they, then who's gonna stop them. Rajiv should give this movie 1star.

  • You are saying all these because it shows the Evil Nature of the British Thugs against Muslims and others in India .... !!!!!! Stop Thugging the people for your British Thug Masters !!!!!

  • Pirates of the mumbai😂😂

  • People who want attention, criticize whats popular ;)

  • We all love Amitabh and Amir... This film is unique having two legends with historical theme.. Huge ameof money and efforts are applied.... Great acting of Amitabh in this age of 77. So, I would say to kindly refrain from negatively biased reviews... Enjoy the movie.. It deserves to be biggest hit of Indian film industry....From very begining some ppl or groups are making wrong propaganda reg. This movie... However it is not so bad... Even it is a good movie.. And deserve to be mega blockbuster..First day shaandaar record 52 Cr... Ke baad bhi.. Negatively biased pal were in hurry to declare this contrary.... What is this.. So strange..This is a very good movie...must watch

  • You also are chewing, in short, it is Rajeev Masand

  • Abe Teri angrezi nahI suneni......backwashes movie and a overacted critic......

  • 2 Stars! aren't you being too generous Mr. Rajeev.

  • From 50 crore on Thursday to 5 crore on Monday.... Disaster.

  • *Indian audience is getting mature day by day* 👍

  • Two legends of Indian cinema are wasted. Vijay Krishna please stop directing.i had hope on Tashan that was v bad and this one is worst than it. Rajeev Masand is very generous indeed . It deserves hardly 1 *

  • I dont understand when salmaan khan or shah rukh khan are plating garbage movies where are these critics are hiding .

  • One of the worst and stupid movie I have seen

  • This is what happens when you cook a hindi movie with western spices.

  • Action scenes don’t look good at all, in the the clippings shown here.

  • 3:32 writhe is pronounced ryth (राइद), not rith (रिद).

  • the animation of this movie looks so fake , same with bahu bali animation was so so fake , disaster movie .

  • AC blackflag landing copied for Amitabh entry

  • Why sooo Generous!!!

  • whats the procedure to get flop movie ticket money back

  • Bawkas movie rating -0

  • i still can't believe Mr. Masand is actually Hired

  • It's 2018 and this channel not only uploads in 480p, but in some shitty aspect ration lmaoooo

  • Is it 'thugs' as in english word or 'thhugs' like the hindi word

  • Felt the same during Dhoom 3

  • Watch Brilliant Ratsasan and 96 Rather than this thugs of Hindostan

  • Wow What a flop movie i like such a flop movie , Amir sir aap bhi flop movie ke shikar ho hi gaye. Thugs Of Hindostan sach me jaisa naam vaisa hi movie , thug gaye hum to dekhte dekhte.

  • These Bollywood gaandoos still believe Indian audience is still from British colonial era.... Throw any tacky movie and they will lap it up, although it's true in Salman's case

  • 🤓Movie kaa Title hii hei "Thugs of Hindostan" , matlab hamlogo ko "Thug" -ne ke liye hii ye Movie banaye hei.. ye log Friend, what is your comment ? Aapko kya lagta hei ?

  • Please do not use too much vocabulary! Please make it simple

  • I really feel for you that you have to watch these shite even though you are aware they would be shite beforehand just to review. Sigh :(

  • In easy way Pirates of carabian ki chaina version hai

  • Misplaced expectations. A tentpole film will have its trappings. Mounting a film for pan India audience is not as easy as it was 20-25 years back. But we still need to have those films. If we do not allow our stars like #aamirkhan to be absurd just because we may like them for certain qualities (doing socially aware and relevant films, content driven films), then we are just telling them to play to their public image. Putting them in a box. And not allowing them to grow and consolidate their audience. I'm surprised how film critics have started to get influenced by trolls and social media, just like our tv news anchors and tv news prime time, pre 2014. We are becoming so embedded in the digital world, that we are unwittingly killing big screen experience. As a film buff, it is sad to see how this film has been killed. #thugsofhindostan is light hearted fun and has rythm. Creates an era which feels like that. Is visually stunning, with a decent storyline. And a central act by #aamirkhan that has layers (if you still want to insist on sociology of a film), and is thoroughly entertaining. It is a good big budget entertainer seen in a while. Only for big screen. And dare I say, its Vijay Krishna Acharya's best film! Watch the film again. And watch it like you don't have to review it. Watch it like you don't need to come back and post comments. Best.

  • TOH is just a movie made with a lazy attitude.. just tried to sell amir bachan and history but failed terribly.

  • Honestly speaking, I don't understand what the fuss is all about. I mean, you all watched the trailer before buying tickets for the movie, right? So what were you expecting??? I watched the trailer and though, "I wouldn't watch it even if it comes on Netflix or Amazon Prime and I get to watch it free. It looks horrible, and it's one of those crap movies Aamir Khan does in every few years (Dhoom 3, people)!" So I don't know why people are so upset when it turned out to be EXACTLY what the trailer promised!!! C'mon!
