Thank You - Movie Review

Sorry, Not Welcome

The ApunKaChoice movie review of Thank You. Welcome to director Anees Bazmee’s new ‘comedy’ Thank You that zips you away to a world where cheating hubbies try to outsmart their simpering, suspecting wives even as a flute-fiddling detective tries to catch the cheaters with their pants down.

The libidinous drive of married men has been the juice of many a Bollywood comedy and the viewers have lapped it up with the sadistic glee of someone who’s missed the action and now likes to watch the pillorying of those who got a piece of it. In that sense, Anees Bazmee’s 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, courtesy the droves of bikini-clad blondes who throw themselves over and around the desi men in most suggestive of poses.

Akshay Kumar, sticking to his no-holds-barred motto, grabs the firang babes here, there and everywhere, gets touchy-feely with Sonam Kapoor, shakes a leg with Mallika Sherawat, and even has a warm embrace with Vidya Balan. And he, of all men, plays the detective out to nail the masti-seeking hubbies.

The plot is threadbare. Bobby Deol, Irrfan Khan and Sunil Shetty play three friends driven more by their libido than faithfulness to their respective spouses, played by Sonam Kapoor, Rimi Sen and Celina Jaitley. The wives hire a private detective (Akshay) to expose their hubbies’ infidelity but trouble starts when the detective falls for one of the ladies.

The humour, typical of any Bazmee film, stays strictly pedestrian, with the unconsummated sex romps of the hubbies busted during foreplay and them being dragged out to the hotel lobbies or left teetering on window ledges in mere bathrobes. Even Akshay is made to run semi-naked on the streets of Montreal with nothing more than a towel covering his male modesty. More seldom than not, the humour leaves you with a suppressed grin at the silliness of the situation. Nothing more.

A few slivers of genuine laughter are provided by the likes of Irrfan Khan (playing a domineering hubby ordering around his docile wife all the time) and Sunil Shetty (going ‘oo-laa-laa-aye-o’ at his friend’s misfortune). The most deadpan of the lot is Bobby Deol, while the ladies, with pretty little to do, are terribly out of form. Sonam hams, hides her lanky frame behind designer dresses. Celina surprisingly sticks to saris and goes missing for most part of the film. Rimi Sen looks like she’s been binging on chocolates and chhola bhatura.

All said, Thank You remains a long winded, bum-aching comedy crammed with the gags we’ve already seen and smirked silly at. Quite crassly, it stereotypes man as irrevocably promiscuous and even labels them as ‘dogs’. Hope PETA won’t take offence.
