Surbhi writes how she was thoroughly disappointed after watching one of the most anticipated films of the year- Thugs Of Hindostan!

When I felt royally ‘Thugged’!

Why Aamir Khan, why? I have watched every movie of yours at least 3 times and some I watch every single time they come on the telly! What happened this time? You thought you were getting too old? Performance anxiety issues? Hua kya? Mujhe samajh nahi Aaya. You broke my heart this time- thug-e-baaz!

Amitabh Bachchan Sir,  I have utmost respect for you and even in the sinking ship of ‘Thugs of Hindostan’, you stood tall. And man! aren’t you fit for your age! For any age for that matter! Khaate kya hain aap?

Katrina Kaif, you looked hawt bae- kinda the only thing you needed to do in the movie. Are you scared of acting? Or too scared to fail? You ought to try it sometime, otherwise you would fail anyway, sweetheart.

Fatima Shaikh, you can do better, honestly! But in your defense, you did sincerely try and your talent shines out in an otherwise dark cloudy sky which prevails throughout the film.

Overall,  it is a movie with good intentions, but poor execution.This could’ve been the Hindi ‘Baahubali’, if well made. And as I am an optimist, and see positive in everything, there are subtle messages in the movie which are witty. For instance, ‘Firaangi’ which is the name of the character of Aamir Khan, denoting that Angrez are never trustworthy. They aren’t. Trust me. I have lived among Brits for 5 years.

Of course, I still wish the movie luck because it is a work of blood, sweat n toil and also because it really does need the luck!

Yash Raj Films Dude, seriously?
