Thumbs down by Stefan S, A Nutshell Review ...No subtitles came with the lyrics to the songs, so I'm left to my own devices to determine what shenanigans the characters were into.... full review

Thumbs down by Naresh Deoshi, Apun Ka Choice ...Thank You might strike a muffled chord with those cinegoers with a taste for comedy arising out of extra-marital misadventures of cheating hubbies, and for a dash of titillation... full review

Thumbs down by Bobby Sing, Bobby Talks’s a shame that our directors and producers still consider 'we viewers' as brain dead, desperate and silly to accept such kind of utter crap.... full review

So-So by Prateeksha Khot, Bolly Spice ...What starts off as a comedy slowly turns into a sad emotional story in the second half, which leaves you wondering about the u-turn. ... full review

Thumbs down by Taran Adarsh, Bollywood Hungama ...What's interesting is that the screenplay packs one implausible situation after another and yet, we can't help but continue smiling at the absurdities. ... full review

Thumbs down Bollywood Mantra ...The film has everything that a commercial comic drama contains, ‘naach-gaana’, rona-dhona’, comedy but nothing appealing.... full review

Thumbs down by Gautam Chintamani, Buzz in Town ...Thank You isn’t a film. It’s a template that has been done to death by the likes of Anees Bazmee, Indra Kumar and David Dhawan. ... full review

Thumbs down by Ameetbhuvan, Desi Martini ...Moronic Drivel... full review

Thumbs down by Yusuf Poonawala, Desi Martini ... Besides the Pyaar Do Pyaar Lo and moderately the Mallika Sherawat item, Razia the music by Pritam is bad. ... full review

Thumbs down by Gaurav Garde, Desi Martini ...Music wise, this movie is really weak and al the songs are of the fast forward variety. Looks like Pritam is running out of tunes in his database.... full review

So-So by Manu Agarwal, Desi Martini ...Watch it with a bunch of friends and you will enjoy.... full review

Thumbs down by Smita, Desi Martini ...Bakwaas!... full review

Thumbs down by Payal Khanna, Desi Martini ...The only surprise element was Mr. Shetty, who was like a house-on-fire! He was the only one who kept the movie going for me.... full review

Thumbs down by Aniruddha Guha, DNA ...What’s surprising, though, is that UTV Motion Pictures agreed to back this recycle-of-an-already-recycled-film... full review

Thumbs down by Deepa Deosthalee, Film Impressions ...Thousands will consume and forget it in the name of mindless entertainment. Unfortunately, I cannot think of a single valid reason to waste my time writing a review.... full review

Thumbs down by Deepa Gahlot, Film Impressions ...It is not in the least bit funny. No Entry, Masti and Shaadi No 1, were not either, but they were not as offensive as this one.... full review

Thumbs down by Rahul Gangwani, Filmfare ...From the opening montage to the background score, the film suffers a huge ’80s hangover.... full review

So-So by Deepa Garimella, ...Suneil Shetty is relegated to a miserable role, but Irrfan bags most of the good parts.... full review

Thumbs down by Pankaj Sabnani, ...Pritam's music is uninspiring. Ravi Yadav's cinematography is first-rate. Steven H. Bernard has edited the film well. ... full review

So-So by Divya Solgama, ...Irfaan Khan is rocking as the main brain behind the wife cheaters. Scenes between him and Rimi are fantastic.... full review

Thumbs down by Mayank Shekhar, Hindustan Times ...The story of course is immaterial... full review

Thumbs down by Rajeev Masand, IBN Live ...awful... full review

Thumbs down by Kaveree Bamzai, india today ...Rimi Sen is somewhat amusing as the much put-upon wife of Irrfan Khan.... full review

Thumbs down by Shubhra Gupta, indian express ...Thank You promises you a huge passel of nothing: no story, no sense. On all those scores, it doesn’t disappoint. ... full review

Thumbs up by Komal Nahta, koimoi ...Sunil Shetty springs a wonderful surprise with a lovely performance. He brings the house down with laughter in at least five scenes.... full review

Thumbs down by Sanjukta Sharma, Live Mint ...There’s not much to be said about the performances. All are uniformly clumsy and insipid.... full review

So-So by Tushar Joshi, MiD DAY ...Sonam looks like she has a flavour for comedy which can be developed. Her pairing with Bobby is a bit off but works because it's so unconventional.... full review

Thumbs down by Karan Anshuman, Mumbai Mirror ...There is no 'acting' involved, they just have to be their template-selves... full review

Thumbs down by Anupama Chopra, NDTV ...Thank You is an equal opportunity offender... full review

Thumbs down by Rachel Saltz, New York Times ...It’s a moment of goofy joy. This film needs more of them. ... full review

So-So by Subhash K Jha, Now ...Remarkably the dialogues remain free of innuendos. Surprising, considering how lurid films about infidelity have gotten in the past. The proceedings adhere to a sense of fun without getting cheesy.... full review

Thumbs down by S Rohatgi, Now ...Story writer and director Anees Bazmee fails to bring any novelty in the story and this time around lacks in direction too. ... full review

Thumbs down by Ashok Nayak, Now ...The actors, who sometimes can rise above the script, fall to scary lows.... full review

Thumbs down by Raja Sen, Rediff ...Kumar, also a fine actor, chooses in these films not to even try, and it is this that brings us to one of those chilly-days-in-Hell kind of declarations: that Suniel Shetty is the best thing in this film.... full review

Thumbs down by Shilpa Jankhandikar, Reuters ...Special mention to Sonam Kapoor who looks lovely but cannot emote genuinely in a single scene – especially for a woman who is supposed to be going through the heartbreak of infidelity.... full review

Thumbs down by Ruchi Mehta, Roochster ...The Mallika Sherawat song was very stupid and it didn’t look like a New Year’s Party to me as it was meant to! ... full review

Thumbs down by Sonia Chopra, Sify Movies ...The half-baked lecture towards the end, singing praises of the sacrificing Indian woman is a dry formality. ... full review

Thumbs up by K N Gupta, ...One must admit that 'Thank You' is packed with humor and keeps the audience's bones tickling. ... full review

So-So by K K Rai, STARDUST ...An average flick... full review

Thumbs down by Roy D'Silva, The Friday Freak ...As for Sonam Kapoor , she needs to change her agent, or take some time off her fashion photoshoots and read the scripts better.... full review

So-So by Nikhat Kazmi, Times of India ...Repetition notwithstanding, Thank You ends up as timepass fare, although it isn't as rollicking as No Entry. ... full review

Thumbs down by Reel Reptile, Upper Stall ...The cinematography by Ravi Yadav is outstanding. He successfully uses foreign locales and a fat budget to present to us a picture of glossy perfection... full review

Thumbs down by Rummana Ahmed, yahoo! India ...Akshay, Bobby and Suneil Shetty in this film are understandable but why did Irrfan Khan agree to this film?... full review

So-So by Spicezee Bureau, ZEENEWS.COM ...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. ... full review
