Evaluation by: Russel D’Silva

Bollywood has had a fairly good report in terms of religiously themed comedies. As is, the Hindi movie trade is synonymous for tickling our humorous bone with a litany of memorable comedies, but it surely particularly raises its bar in terms of passing a social message with a non secular undercurrent, as has been evidenced in movies like OMG, PK and Taqdeerwala. Now, Ajay Devgn, Sidharth Malhotra, Rakul Preet Singh starrer Thank God, directed by Indra Kumar, comes alongside in an endeavour to mild up our Diwali with laughter and a well-intentioned lesson.

So, are you enthusiastic about what to observe this weekend or what to observe this week and questioning whether or not Thank God is value your time? Scroll down for my full Thank God film overview under…

What’s it about

What’s scorching

Thank God is like an escalator at a mall, rising increased because it goes alongside, resulting in a plethora of goodies on the finish of the road identical to you in all probability get off an escalator and land in a meals courtroom. Whereas the primary half packs a couple of humorous moments, the second half actually takes off, brimming with one emotional intestine punch after one other sans ever going overboard, the sentimentality well offset by simple, laidback appeal and delicate humor. Some moments like between Ayaan and his mom, then along with his father and sister, and at last the climax depart you on an emotional excessive whereas additionally compelling you to introspect with some lovely but non-preachy life classes.

Ajay Devgn shoulders all the film like solely he can regardless of not taking centrestage this time whereas Sidharth Malhotra and Rakul Preet are each ample. Seema Pahwa and Kanwaljit Singh, being the expertise that they’re, shine of their restricted display time whereas veteran Indra Kumar lends all his expertise to raise the script every time it threatens to dawdle. The units, costumes, modifying, VFX additionally cross muster, by no means distracting from proceedings. A phrase for Nora Fatehi, too, who completely sizzles within the two scenes she’s there.

What’s not

Again to the escalator reference: Simply as some folks have slight bother getting onto an escalator, Thank God takes fairly a little bit of time to essentially get going and never till the second half does it settle into its groove. The primary half is not devoid of its moments, however they do not actually come collectively as a complete. You would not really feel bored or something so extreme, however proceedings merely amble alongside, nearly as if realizing that higher issues await across the bend. Not one of the songs, too, actually work – fairly shocking for an Indra Kumar film, which has at all times boasted of 1 or two good tunes at a minimal.

BL Verdict

Thank God could also be no PK, OMG or Taqdeerwala among the many pantheon of spiritual comedies, however does sufficient to glitter this Diwali, particularly with the second half packing an actual emotional punch balanced with delicate humour. Ajay Devgn shines like solely he can whereas each Sidharth Malhotra and Rakul Preet Singh are adequately adequate. All in all, a very good watch with your loved ones this pageant weekend. I am going with 3.5 out of 5 stars.
