If you have been on the internet recently, you’d know that Yash Raj Films dropped the trailer for Thugs of Hindostan. It stars two Bollywood big shots Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan. The cast also includes Fatima and Katrina Kaif.
Set in 1795, it tells the story of Indian rebellions/thugs who take on the mighty British army to free their land. However, people think it looks similar to Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean series. Not only does it feature similar ship battles, but also the background music and a lot of the characters feel the same.
Especially Aamir Khan’s character looks heavily inspired from Johnny Depp’s iconic Captain Jack Sparrow.
But that’s not it. TOH trailer is also getting trolled for terrible VFX that “look straight outta 2007 play-station games.” It’s probably because with a massive budget of over 210 crore, people were expecting a visual treat. Sadly, people are rather disappointed.
Trailer might have been eh, but these savage and funny tweets will definitely make up for it.

So Thugs Of Hindostan is basically Indian Pirates of Caribbean with poor VFX and bollywood touch where You’ll see Jack Sparrow (Amir Khan) dancing with Katrina on an item song.

Me while watching Thugs of Hindostan trailer :
Arre ye toh pirates of carribean type hai.
Arre ye toh Sherlock holmes type hai
Arre ye ladkiyaan toh game of thrones type hain
Arre ye angrez toh bohot lagaan type hai
Arre ye katrina abhi bhi chikni chameli type hai

More than its trailer, I’m disappointed by the fact that Thugs of Hindostan isn’t about Indian politicians

After doing a strong and substantial role such as Zoya in Tiger Zinda Hai, sad to see Katrina being used merely as a prop in TOH. Irony is that her fans do not want her to work with Salman 😂#ThugsOfHindostanTrailer

Its 2018 and bollywood still can't afford good VFX artist. Spiderman 2002 had better VFX than #ThugsOfHindostanTrailer
