Lets Take a look at the critics' Thugs Of Hindostan Review:

Times Of India: Apart from the stray funny moments and consistently good visuals (thanks to decent CGI efforts), TOH doesn’t really have the punch or the thrill required to pull off an an adventure ride. At 2 hours and 45 minutes, the film feels a little too long and that’s problematic. The grand scale of the film does hold sway in terms of the visual experience, but at the end, this one is all show and no substance.(read more on TOI)

Rating: 2.5/5

IndiaTV News: Big B, Aamir Khan deliver convincing acts, Katrina fails to impress.The East India company is portrayed as naive bunch of white men ready to trade anything with.gold, taking us far away from reality. Background score is enticing, but not The vfx and locales compensate for the mundane script. Too many loopholes in screenplay and continuity as well as logic.(read more on IndiaTV)

Rating: 2/5

NDTV: Impressively mounted but caught between solemnity and fluffiness, Thugs of Hindostan might entertain large swathes of the audience, but it is ultimately too tacky and unconvincing to lay legitimate claims to being India's answer to Pirates of the Caribbean.(read More on NDTV)

Rating: 2.5/5

Scroll_in: Aamir Khan is the saving grace in a trite, un involving film.Amitabh Bachchan lumbers through the movie and looks exhausted from the burden of carrying so much armour and baritone-induced gravitas. Katrina Kaif, playing the dancer Suraiya, has exactly three short scenes and two songs. Fatima Sana Shaikh gets the meatier role. Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub is wasted as Firangi’s partner in crime, Sanichar. Only Aamir Khan seems to be paying any attention to the proceedings, and he ensures that the movie springs to life when he is around. (read More on Scroll)
