The Hush Post: Finally, the trailer of “Thugs Of Hindostan” is out. The filmmakers released movie’s trailer on Thursday. The trailer of Amitabh Bachchan-Aamir Khan keeps the audience spellbound.
The trailer begins with the epicentre of the storyline the Thugs gearing up to fight the East India Company. The storyline of the film is set in 1795 when the East India Company came to India, a report said.
Then the trailer shows Amitabh Bachchan’s grand entry with lots of action and dialogues delivered in his signature baritone. Big B plays Khudabaksh, also called Azad, – Thug commander of the sea. Amitabh Bachchan’s second is deadly archer Zafira, played by Fatima Sana Shaikh, the report said.
Lloyd Owen, playing British commander John Clive, appoints the only thug who can parallel Khudabaksh’s war tactics. Then enters Aamir Khan aka Firangi from “gaon Gopalpur and zilla Kanpur.” Firangi infiltrates Khudabaksh’s fauj in order to rat out his war plans to the East India Company. Katrina Kaif as dancer Suraiyya Jaan, is the icing on the cake. It is difficult to tell which team she is on exactly.
The biggest surprise is towards the end of the trailer when the warring thugs confront each other. The trailer ends on a cliffhanging note with the sound of clashing swords. Khudabaksh sums up film’s essence: “Agaar azadi hai gunah, toh qubul hai sazaa. Ab toh hoga wohi, jo hai manzure khudah!”
The film’s team released the much-awaited trailer on Yash Chopra’s 86th birth anniversary on Thursday. Remembering the celebrated filmmaker, Aamir Khan shared the trailer on Twitter with these words: “Here come the Thugs! It’s a big day for all of us. Missing Yash ji. Wish he was here with us. I hope that Thugs Of Hindostan will make your Diwali a fun and enjoyable ride!””
