Thank You Review – Sickeningly Bad

Never let it be said that Bollywood star Akshay Kumar does not stoop to a new low with each new film.

If the new Bollywood film Thank You, its director Anees Bazmee and lead star Akshay Kumar prove anything at all, it’s that Indian films are, for the most part, made by retards for returds.

Folks, there’s not one redeemable element in the 2-hours and 20-minutes of this crap-show. Not one!

What is intended as a comedy about marital infidelities and constant philandering of three men turns out to be nothing but one of those epic  horror-shows that the Bollywood clowns churn out with monotonous frequency.

If you thought Akshay Kumar’s last two movies Patiala House and Tees Maar Khan were bad, well, they’re masterpieces compared to this drivel a.k.a. Thank You.

Insufferable Trash
The acting is intolerable, the story and screenplay insufferable, the music unendurable and the overall damage to our tender souls inestimable.

How such garbage manages to hit the screens worldwide is a mystery known but to UTV (producer and distributor), Akshay Kumar and Anees Bazmee.

The two arch-villains at the epicenter of this trash are, of course, Anees Bazmee (writer and director) and Akshay Kumar (hero and by the way his wife Twinkle Khanna is co-producer of the film), on whose shoulder rests the fate of this piece of trash.

Almost every single performer in the movie including Sonam Kapoor, Celina Jaitly, Suneil Shetty, Akshay Kumar, a simian-looking creature playing the role of the Mafia don King’s assistant Ghajini and Bobby Deol make asses of themselves.

Irrfan Khan and Rimi are tolerable, but barely so.

Sonam Kapoor, particularly, was a complete disappointment. In a key scene where her character is about to jump into the swirling waters of Niagara Falls, Sonam is all at sea as Akshay Kumar’s Kishan dissuades her from doing so. God, how we wished she’d taken the plunge.  Our misery would  have been shorter by 45-minutes.

In a lifeless performance, Akshay Kumar is Kishan, a private detective, hired by the wronged women Sanjana (Sonam Kapoor), Shivani (Rimi Sen) and Maya (Celina Jaitly) to teach their errant philandering husbands a lesson.

The mediocre acting and asinine story that, besides the sophomoric and unfunny antics of the three men and the private detective, also involves a Mafia Don and Canadian Intelligence Services officials (speaking Hindi, of course) takes a heavy toll on viewers and inflicts a splitting migraine by the end of the show.

Horrid Music
It’s, perhaps, fitting that a movie so horrible should be accompanied by horrid dances and awful music. The item number featuring Mallika Sherawat sets a new low even by the lowly standards of Bollywood.

Your favorite blog strongly advises you against seeing this sickeningly bad film.

If any Bollywood movie deserves the middle finger, it’s Thank You. Guys, hesitate not. Lift your middle finger with gusto and tell the Bollywood bozos that you’ll not stand for such garbage any more.

    Why… why.. why… would you go and watch it 🙁 Responds:

    Oh, the sacrifics we make for our American readers.

    We should have gone to Hanna.

      Yeah, I am thinking that Saoirse will be more kick-ass than Chloe Moretz.. Responds:

      Thanks for the video. Just watched it.

      Saoirse is good.

      We like both Chloe & Saoirse (haven’t seen her in a movie though). The SI crystal ball foresees good things in the future for both girls.

      Tis’ a pity there’s not one Indian actress with anywhere near the poise and self-assurance these two young girls display.

    Sometimes I feel that you have too much of money that you don’t know where to spend.

    Btw, just back from watching Your Highness. It was funny in parts but overall it was disappointing. Responds:

    Your Highness opened to generally poor reviews.

    Hanna had the most favorable rating.
