Movie Review: Thank You (2011)

Users Rating: [ratings] ★½☆☆☆
Box Office: Below Avg

Okay, now here’s the first biggie of the season. Major studio, super-successful director, mega budget, ensemble star cast, lotsa glitz-n-glam… Besides, after the stupendous success of films like WELCOME and SINGH IS KINNG, the Akshay Kumar – Anees Bazmee jodi teams up for the third time, promising to complete a hat-trick of enjoyable laughathons. The expectations, therefore, are humungous.

There’s talk that THANK YOU is an extension of SHAADI NO. 1, NO ENTRY and MASTI, besides the Hollywood film THE SEVEN YEAR ITCH. The commonality is that all these films talk of philandering husbands and extra-marital affairs. But THANK YOU is more of a cat-n-mouse game between philandering husbands and a detective, incidentally hired by both the sides – the husbands as well as the wives. Lots of scope for humor and fun moments, right?

Raj, Yogi and Vikram — best friends, business partners, serial womanizers and happily married! Happy, because their lovely wives have no clue that their husbands cheat on them with every pretty young thing they can lay their eyes on. This picture perfect world is rocked when Raj’s wife Sanjana begins to suspect her husband and hires the suave private detective, Kishan, to tail him.

Kishan has built his reputation as a man who saves marriages by getting erring husbands to mend their ways. In this particular case, however, his overwhelming attraction towards Sanjana means he may not be acting in her best interest. What follows is a crazy cat-n-mouse game, with Kishan trying to catch the husbands with their pants down literally and them attempting to just stay outside his grasp.
