Thugs of Hindostan is one of the most anticipated films of 2018. A huge star cast, exotic locations, period drama, costumes, sea battle sequences and more. It seems to have it all! A fictional story as such, Thugs of Hindostan showcases the resistance to British invasion by a thug called Azad back in the early 19th century.

The titular poster had come out early this year while the film was being shot. However, proper unveiling began on September 17 with the launch of official logo and the title card on YouTube. YRF sought to go through a different kind of marketing campaign introducing each character. Nice one, we say!!

Thugs of Hindostan Story & Trailer:

The trailer of Thugs of Hindostan released on September 27 on Yash Chopra’s 86th birthday. The film is based on a novel called Confessions of a Thug written by Philip Meadows Taylor in 1839. The book is about a thug called Azad who revolts against the British rule and posed a major challenge to the empire during the early 19th century. However, the story of the film is primarily fiction - ranging between 1790 and 1805.

Going by the special effects and the way each character has been introduced, the film seems to have a lot in store for the audience. In fact, within minutes of its release, people seem to have caught on with the flavor of the film. The most anticipated trailer is here and all the eyes are on Diwali - November 8 when the film hits the theatres.

Thugs of Hindostan Star Cast:

Thugs of Hindostan stars Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan as two opponents who first meet as friends and accomplices. This is the first time the two stalwarts have come together for a film. Katrina Kaif has been seen before as a dancer and it seems, she’d recreate a more 18th-century version of her character in Dhoom 3. Fatima Sana Sheikh plays a warrior woman and we can’t be more impressed with what she has sought out to do after her performance in Dangal. But of course, the star attraction remains Big B who had to undergo health problems donning those super heavy costumes and engage in fight scenes on a ship! Add to that, a choreography by Prabhu Deva. yeah, we know!!

Yeah, the trailer has raised expectations already and we can’t wait to see what happens between the two titular characters. Box office on fire, anyone? totally!!!

Thugs of Hindostan is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated big budget films of 2018. The announcement of the film, the viewers had to deal with a great deal of anticipation to see how the film will pan out once it releases. Now, there are two key factors which might make it a success. One, Aamir Khan’s one film per year formula which, so far, had worked wonderfully in his favor. And two, the Diwali release.
