Story In Detail:
Set in 1795, Thugs Of Hindostan begins on an exhilarating note when Mirza Baig, the ruler of Raunakpur (Ronit Roy) and his wife and son are treacherously murdered by a tyrannical British officer named Clive (Lloyd Owen). The only surviving member of the royal clan is Zafira, who is rescued by her father's trusted general Khudabaksh (Amitabh Bachchan).
Cut to eleven years later, we see Khudabaksh as a 'Messiah' of the realm, fighting against the British with a grown-up Zafira (Fatima Sana Shaikh) by his side, who is hell-bent on seeking revenge from her family's slayers. The duo marshall their people against the British clan under a group named 'Azaad'. To nab 'Azaad', Clive and his team seek help from a thug, Firangi Mallah (Aamir Khan). Beneath his outlandish appearance, he's a smooth-talker who repeatedly switches sides and won't even bat an eyelid when it comes to double-crossing his own pals, just for the sake of earning guineas. The rest of the plot revolves around how good triumphs over evil.
