Thank you - Preview

quick review:

It's brainless, it's banal, it's boring - nothing short of what you expect from an Anees Bazmi film.

I go to watch films to like them. I rarely go with a preconceived notion because I believe that there will be something or the other to appreciate I the film - one scene, one joke, one song, one shot. Every single thing that I've seen or read about Thank you or know about its makers makes me resent the prospect of having to watch the film. I'm just not looking forward to watching this film because -

  • Just the trailers/song promos are insulting. Sample the first two seconds of this song promo -
  • The words that are meant to lure us in to the theater in the main promo -
    MEET THREE FRIENDS.
    THE DAY BEGINS AT WORK WITH WOMEN.
    COME EVENING MORE WOMEN.
    BUT NIGHT ENDS WITH WIVES.
    THREE DIRTY DOGGIES WILL FACE THE BIG BAD WOLF (Akshay Kumar).
    HE WILL CHARM THEIR WIVES (while jumping over bikini-clad women and using an umbrella as a parachute to jump on a car)
    AND RUIN THEIR LIVES

    Dirty doggies? Dirty doggies?? Really? Geez....And no, that is not the only thing that bothers me about this whole set-up.
  • A few years ago, I might have looked forward to what Irrfan Khan does in this genre with this ensemble. But, I dread my curiosity after having watched Nana Patekar in director, Anees Bazmee's earlier outing, Welcome.
  • Akshay Kumar - just can't stand him in this genre any more. I've lost all faith that he will even attempt anything different. And what he does in slapstick comedy has become way beyond tolerable now.

Too much negativity. Help! How do I walk into that theater and give this one a fair chance. It's almost crying for me to be unfair to it. It's wrong for the film to do this to me. The music too doesn't seem like it has anything to look forward to.

Music reviews:
milliblog - "Thankless, regurgitated noise. Pyaar mein offers minor solace, but overall, NW1W." - And that's the entire review!

music aloud - "6/10"

Bollyspice - "2.5/5"

Bollywood Hungama - "3.5/5"

HappySing - "I didn’t try listening to the remixes especially they were all merely ‘remix’es and mentioned nothing more specific than that."
