Despite all the hype that the Vijay Krishna Acharya's directorial created with its trailer, songs and promotions, the film turned out to be a "grand ship" that sank. The reason of Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan uniting for the first time is more than enough to raise the excitement.

The big release this Diwali is the Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan and Katrina Kaif starrer Thugs of Hindostan, which released Thursday.

Bachchan plays Khudabaksh Jahaazi, a patriot who marshalls his people against a tyrannical British officer named Clive (Lloyd Owen). Although Aamir Khan's character Firangi seems to be modeled around Jack Sparrow, the action sequences of Thugs is nowhere close to Pirates of the Caribbean.

Title Role Officially Cast In DC Universe's Swamp Thing
Andy Bean will play series regular character Alec Holland, and Derek Mears will play the titular character, Swamp Thing . Mark Verheiden and Gary Dauberman are writing the show, with Len Wiseman attached as producer and director.

Overall, it's a complicated story that had the potential to be entertaining but poorly executed.

Reportedly set in the backdrop of India under the British rule in the 19th century, Thugs of Hindostan is inspired by Philip Meadows Taylor's 1839 novel Confessions of a Thug. The movie is directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya, who also directed Aamir Khan in Dhoom 3.

Although the film has not gone up to the mark and trade analyst Taran Adarsh has stated this film a totally disappointing. Holds true for #TOH. "Formula-ridden plot, screenplay of convenience, shoddy direction are the main culprits..." the tweet read. After the holiday period, it's the content of the film that will do the talking. It will be interesting to see if the film will surpass the day one collection of Sanju to become the top day one earner of 2018.
