This Thursday, Bollywood has only one prominent film to offer. YRF's Thugs of Hindostan will release on November 8, just one day after Diwali. The movie stars Aamir Khan, Amitabh Bachchan, Fatima Sana Shaikh and Katrina Kaif in key roles. The first trailer of the film has been well received by the fans as it shows something the Indian audience has not seen before. TOH has been directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya, who is the man behind Dhoom 3. He certainly knows to perfectly mix action and drama. So, be sure that TOH will match the quality of entertainment that was Dhoom 3. Thugs of Hindostan: Aamir Khan's Firangi and His Donkey Will Guide You Through Traffic on Google Maps! Ready to Follow Mr Perfectionist?
Everything you just read should be reason enough for you to book your tickets for the film. But in case you need more convincing about Thugs Of Hindostan, we are listing down 5 reasons why you should definitely check this movie out this weekend.
# Aamir's first Diwali release in years
If you exclude Secret Superstar, in which Aamir only had a cameo, the only Diwali release the actor has to his credit is Raja Hindustani, which was a blockbuster. While Diwali has mostly been a stronghold for Shah Rukh Khan and Ajay Devgn, this year it is reserved for Aamir Khan fans, that too in dhamakedaar style.
Once again, we are going to see Katrina Kaif's dancing prowess in the film and we have no regrets about it. This time she has been choreographed by India's best dancer Prabhudeva. We have only seen glimpses of her songs Suraiyya and Manzoor-E-Khuda, as the makers have decided to not release the full music videos on the internet. So the only way to watch the songs is to head out to your nearest theatre.
After a really, really long time in Bollywood, we will see a movie solely based on the lives of sea pirates. Get ready to see a lot of action on ships and lot of ocean-based adventures.Sure, we can't rule out of the Pirates of the Carbbean influences, but how many complained when Aamir rehashed Memento and The Prestige in Ghajini and Dhoom 3?
# Big B with Aamir
These two stalwarts have been active in the industry for such a long time. And yet both have not worked together until TOH. So, the movie is certainly an event of a lifetime as it brings together Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan.
# Most expensive movie of Bollywood this year
Thugs of Hindostan is the most expensive Bollywood movie to release this year. So, if you want Bollywood to invest in big-budget movies in the coming time, you better encourage them by watching this one.
