Review: ‘Thank You’ is just another mindless comic caper
‘Patiala House’ and ‘Yamla Pagla Deewana’ might have worked wonders for Akshay Kumar and Bobby Deol respectively, but this Friday, Akki and Bobby starrer ‘Thank You’ ends up as a damp squib at Box Office.
Starring Akshay Kumar, Bobby Deol, Irrfan Khan, Suniel Shetty, Celina Jaitley and Sonam Kapoor, Anees Bazmee’s ‘Thank You’ is a story of three promiscuous husbands - Bobby Deol, Suniel Shetty and Irrfan Khan, who don’t mind being disloyal to their wives, Sonam Kapoor, Celina Jaitley and Rimmi Sen. To set things straight, here comes marriage therapist, Akshay Kumar, who takes up the cudgels to teach these adulterous husbands a lesson of their life.
‘Thank You’ is ‘No Entry’ redux sans Salman Khan where Akshay is entrusted the task of correcting the erring husbands, bringing them on the right path and making them understand the purity of the institution of marriage.
However, a loose script, lack of imagination and some terrible acting proves to be the bane of the film, which leaves the audience almost hysterical. Bobby, Suniel and Irrfan look completely out of the place while Sonam, Celina and Rimmi look embellished mannequins.
Irrfan Khan and Suneil Shetty try to be comic, while Bobby Deol looks wooden and the girls hardly have any author backed roles.
In the end, ‘Thank You’ is a dull and boring comedy, which plays on male fidelity, a rather worn out subject that has been presented umpteen times in Bollywood.
Can the exquisite foreign locales, Pritam’s foot tapping music and Mallika Sherawat’s oomphy item number save the fate of ‘Thank You’? You better check out yourself!
Ratings: Two cheers for this one!
