If you're looking for an action/adventure film that's very smart, clever, fun, funny, touching, exciting, suspenseful, and unpredictable, give Thugs of Hindostan a chance.
This is such a great film: the story and the characters are excellent and keeps you guessing and you never know how it's going to end! And its India flavor and style gives it (and its story and characters) an enjoyable (and refreshing) originality. I've never seen an action/adventure film quite like this: it's very different and it's very cool. The soundtrack, both the music and the singing, is unforgettable; and the dancing, exhilarating. The music, singing, and dancing are all so beautiful, powerful, exotic, and overwhelming, all having that wonderful India-ness. And the sword-fighting and battle scenes are awesome by the way, orchestrated with great choreography and style.
If you're still unsure about the film, my advice is to watch the trailer and if you like it, watch the film in Hindi (its original language) with English subtitles. Also, ignore the three and a half star rating and avoid reading any negative critical reviews: if you like or love the film (and you just may), who cares what anyone else thinks?
I want to say more of why I loved it, but I don't want to spoil any of the story or the characters, so I'll end my review by saying, in the words of my favorite one, Firangi,
"1, 2, 3, 4, 5 - QUICK WATCH!"
