THANK YOU

There’s no polite way to say this – director Anees Bazmee’s Thank You is an awful, awful film. Five writers are credited with having worked on the script, and yet all they could come up with is a moronic plot about three women who hire a detective to expose their cheating husbands. Bazmee dips into his seemingly never-ending vault of sexist dialogues and slapstick gags to deliver yet another unmistakably sleazy comedy.

 
Bobby Deol, Irrfan Khan and Sunil Shetty are three married friends in Toronto who can’t keep their privates in their pants. When their wives – Sonam Kapoor, Rimii Sen and Celina Jaitley – decide they’ve had enough, they hire the services of Private Eye Akshay Kumar to teach their husbands a lesson.
 
Badly scripted, shoddily photographed and embarrassingly performed, Thank You is one of those rare films that gets absolutely nothing right. Ever since the undeserving success of No Entry, Bazmee has churned out a string of comedies on similar lines. Cheating husbands and forgiving wives are staple characters in Bazmee’s regressive films, which invariably end with these doormat women going back to their repentant spouses. But repetition is the least of this film’s problems… Thank You doesn’t work because it’s just not funny.
 
At best Irrfan Khan occasionally livens up dull scenes with his straight-faced humor, and he’s complemented by Rimii Sen who matches his timing. But the big disappointment of course is Akshay Kumar, who works through his scenes on auto-pilot mode. Once a sharp comic actor, it appears as if Akshay himself is now tired of doing the same thing over and over again.
 
What you take back with you as you leave the cinema in the end, is the repugnant image of these four male actors – each well into his 40s – slobbering over blondes half their age. They’re dirty old men, and Thank You is a dirty little picture.
 
I’m going with one out of five for director Anees Bazmee’s Thank You. Be smart, exercise your right to say no!

    I am surprised to see this review. I found the movie hilarious and comedy is simply great. Although I would agree that the story is not great but I fail to understand whether we go for story in comedy movies. I enjoyed it thoroughly and felt so for the audience who were watching with me as there was a comic punch every 5 minutes which makes u laugh. Keep up the good work guys.
