Watched thugs and my review is added under the review post.
My main complaint is that it does not have those scenes. I don’t know if its the right word but them Hero Elevation scenes I’m talking about!
See for instance Bahubali 1 and 2 had ample scenes where the hero was shown to be a badass. Salman Khan is also shown a savage in Dabangg, Tiger etc. The standout scenes were so rare in the movie.
People have started shitting D3 so much that they forgot that when the movie released, it was received mostly on the positive side. It’s just that the movie hasn’t aged well and for obvious reasons. There are scenes such as Sahir fooling Jai with his retard brother’s mannerisms or the last scene where they both jump off the bridge. Even Dangal starts off with that legendary dialogue “National level champion se hara hai tu!”
