Yash Raj Films released the trailer of Thugs Of Hindostan today on the special occasion of Yash Chopra’s 86th birth anniversary. Thugs of Hindostan is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated film of the year.
The three-minute 33 seconds long trailer opens on an intense scene; The East India Company, which arrived in Indian with a primary purpose to trade, is now ruling the nation. Azaad, played by Amitabh Bachchan, a Hindustani, is determined to liberate his country. But it’s not that easy, the British have hired the biggest thug– Firangi (Aamir Khan), to stop him. Aamir as Firangi holds the maximum attention, thanks to his funny one-liners and wicked character. As the trailer progresses, Firangi takes sides with Azaad and says, “Ab hume Azaad ke saath rehna hai, Azaad banna hai.” Is he actually with Azaad or is it his strategy?

Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan starrer Thugs Of Hindostan will also be dubbed in Tamil and Telugu. The film’s director Vijay Krishna Acharya says he wants to share the movie with the audiences across India. “We are a nation of film lovers, and films have often been a cultural glue that binds us all in a way that transcends geography. We hope that in ‘Thugs of Hindostan‘, the audience will find a story that is universal in appeal and unique in its presentation,” Acharya said in a statement.
After looking at the trailer of the film we can’t help but make comparisons of the film’s look and premise to Pirates of the Caribbean. Also Aamir’s character borrows heavily from Johny Depp’s Jack Sparrow look. While the similarities between Thugs of Hindostan and the Pirates of the Caribbean series are too loud and noticeable to avoid, it is yet to be seen how much Aamir’s character and the Vijay Krishna Acharya dirtected movie have taken inspiration from it.
The film is directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya who also worked with Aamir in the 2013 money spinner Dhoom 3. Thugs of Hindostan also co-stars Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh. The magnum opus will release on 8th November this year.
