Thugs of Hindostan trailer was shared by Aamir Khan on Thursday, after a week of motion posters teasing the looks of film’s principal cast — Aamir Khan, Katrina Kaif, Amitabh Bachchan and Fatima Sana Shaikh. The trailer takes us back to 1795 AD; British East India Company is the ascendant power but giving them stiff challenge is a band of thugs.
Riding the waters on sailing ships, armed with swords, bow and arrows and cannons (mounted on ships), the spunky lot take on the more technologically advanced British. In the countryside, the British are taking Indians as prisoners in hordes, gunning down people who are armed with little more than flame torches and lathis and burning entire villages.
