The trailer Yash Raj Films' biggest movie yet, Thugs of Hindostan, launched on Thursday in Mumbai on Yash Chopra's 86th birth anniversary. The stars of the movie, Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan, Katrina Kaif and Fatima Sana Shaikh along with the director Vijay Krishna Acharya were present at the launch event.


Thugs of Hindostan aims to give a great cinematic experience of the grand movie, which is in the league of Hollywood film series Pirates of the Caribbean.


Now that the wait is over and the first official trailer is here, netizens are leaving positive comments for the video. After teasing fans with film's motion posters of each character, here comes the three-minute 33 seconds long trailer and it is epic.

Seven noteworthy moments in the trailer:

1. Amitabh Bachchan’s Azaad (earlier introduced as Khudabaksh in the motion poster) looked furious, showed off his sword skills and aimed to kill the enemies. Amitabh's powerful voice gives you a feeling that the movie will be a blockbuster for sure. His attire and persona are similar to that of Captain Hector Barbossa, a fictional character in the Pirates of the Caribbean film series.

2. Aamir Khan as Firangi is given a task by the British to capture Azaad (Amitabh) because he stands in the way of their rule. Aamir's character has a weird outfit, wearing a green jacket and a top hat and riding a donkey. It reminds us of Jack Sparrow, played by Johnny Depp, from the Pirates of the Caribbean. His humorous witty antics are accentuated with an Awadhi dialect. It looks like he will also be the only one responsible for the humour and fun in the movie.


3. Dangal fame girl Fatima Sana Shaikh also impresses as the bold and beautiful archer Zafira. You will also see her copying Devasena from Baahubali's fight scene. In the movie Baahubali 2, we saw Baahubali teaching Devasena to shoot three arrows at a time.



4. Katrina Kaif is the eye-candy in the trailer. She plays the role of a seductive dancer-entertainer who goes by the name of Suraiyya. Going by the trailer, she will be playing Aamir's love interest and doing a few dance numbers for sure. Just a few visuals of Katrina Kaif from the trailer are enough to make anyone go crazy.



5. The movie has impressive action sequences by Amitabh and Aamir which will fascinate anyone. However, many said, Thugs of Hindostan “have many some mediocre CGI effects”. A few, who saw the trailer, said, “A bad copy of Pirates of Caribbean and Kranti with low backlights and very dull VFX”.

6. Not just visuals and background music but the movie will also remind us of Pirates of the Caribbean. With lots of drum beats, violins and bagpiper’s music will raise your excitement to another level.



7. Amitabh and Aamir will be sharing the screen space for the first time in this movie. In the last scene of the trailer, we see the sword-fighting sequence between the two.

Directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya, the film is set to hit the screens on November 8 during the Diwali weekend. It will also be dubbed in Tamil and Telugu.
