Thugs of Pirates of the Caribbean 😮
8 November 2018 | by sourya-mukherjeeSee all my reviews

It's the first time that two of the strongest actors in Indian cinema, Amitabh Bachchan & Aamir Khan came together for a project but what you get in return is almost 3 hrs of total disappointment. To start with, the movie is extremely long, slow, boring & lacks a good storyline. The cinematography looks like a cheap copy of Pirates of the Caribbean. Aamir Khan's himself looks like trying to pull off a Johnny Depp from the Hollywood hit. Amitabh Bachchan performance is dull and nothing you would remember the next day. Fatima Sana Shaikh is bad & I have no clue what was Katrina Kaif doing in the movie. Even her dance numbers look like a copy of the moves she had in the song Kamli. The performance of the support cast is not worth mentioning. Direction is absolutely ordinary. Songs are horrible! The only decent thing about the movie are the last 30 minutes. The twist & turns are interesting but slowly becomes predictable. Certain dialogues are also funny. However, the bottom line is, give this one a skip. No point spending your money on this one. Tips for the director: India is not an Island nation! What are so many ships doing in the movie 🤔? Whatever it is, boats & ships are not & was never the primary mode of transportation within our country. Crazy!!!
