Thank God Box Office Review: Expectations

Cringe was the word that came to my mind when I first saw the trailer of Thank God. It looked like an old film which got stuck due to lack of buyers. It felt like Ajay Devgn is in self destruction mode who dared to come up with such thing before his highly-anticipated Drishyam 2, after already delivering a flop like Runway 34. And Sidharth Malhotra, why you even choosing such films after finding some credibility with Shershaah?

Just like its competitor Ram Setu, this film too had been low on buzz with no good marketing and promotions. If it’s a cost-cutting thing or any strategy don’t know but it’s definitely not helping the film.

With so many negatives, it looked like a film which is totally dependent of Diwali season to garner as much moolah as possible.

Thank God Box Office Review: Impact

Yesterday, I watched Thank God in a night show which had 70-80% occupancy. Just like Akshay Kumar’s Ram Setu, it immensely benefitted due to walk-in audience. Yes, the film covered the lost ground after poor advance bookings for day 1. It just shows the impact of Diwali season.

Talking about the reports, the word-of-mouth of neutral audience has been average to okay, which is of course better than my initial ‘cringe’ thoughts. Reactions from the family audience have been decent so far, which might work in the favour as Ram Setu is more of a serious film.

It is more likely to work in A and B centres, where it’ll be competing with Ram Setu. In the mass pockets, it is dominated by Akshay Kumar’s film but things might come to the same level due to Ajay Devgn’s face value.

Thank God Box Office Review: Final Verdict

On the whole, Thank God is all set to enjoy the advantage of a long extended weekend of Diwali despite a clash with Ram Setu. Of course, things would have been much better if the content was good. As of now, it is looking to earn anywhere between 60-75 crores at the box office, which is decent enough for a mid-scale film.

What’s Good: It’s better than Ram Setu! (Released on the same day)

What’s Bad: Ram Setu isn’t really a bar for this film to push & be happy about

Loo Break: Stick back for the funny scenes, you can get off during the melodramatic sequences & return for some slapstick fun

Watch or Not?: Not worth leaving your comfort zone & going to a cinema hall for this! Too much effort. You can give it a try on OTT

Available On: Theatrical Release

Runtime: 121 minutes (Feels Like 151 minutes)

User Rating:

Ayan Kapoor (Sidharth Malhotra) is just like you & me (except we’re poor), he’s rich but shares the usual problems with us. Monetary issues, badly hit by demonetisation, and chaos in his personal & professional life which make him annoyed with life and hence he messes with anyone who tries to piss him off even for a second (basically he turns into Jaya Bachchan & faces life as she faces paparazzi).

Post an accident, though his body is transferred to a hospital, his soul is sent to heaven where he faces Yamdoot aka YD & CG aka the one who shall not be named (Ajay Devgn). They play the ‘game of life’ with him deciding his fate of going to hell or getting back his life. Through the game, Ayan learns a lot of ignored things about himself & life-changing the way he looks at it.

Thank God Movie Review: Script Analysis

Aakash Kaushik, Madhur Sharma’s script heavily relies on the humour & drama balance which is lost more than one time impacting the intrigue it builds occasionally. In a line, it’s fun when it’s funny but gets really sad (not good, melancholic sad) when it gets sad.

It follows the traditional trademarked Indra Kumar formula of getting you emotionally inclined towards the narrative even when you want to have just some light fun. It’s a crowd pleaser, with its comedy, for sure but the real question is: is that enough to attract the audience to this changing phase of cinema?

Thank God Movie Review: Star Performance

Ajay Devgn could act decent even if he sleepwalks throughout his scenes & that’s what he has precisely done with CJ. The attempt at being a cooler version of ‘the one who shall not be named’ is eclipsed by how imbalanced his character is. He’s good on a few occasions but just wants to get out of the film on others.

Sidharth Malhotra had clearly overestimated how this character would turn out when he must’ve read the script. Ayan’s quirks just don’t come out as natural as they should’ve with someone like Varun Dhawan. Even his aggressive side isn’t optimally showcased due to the poor writing.

Rakul Preet is as good as a decent special appearance which might not make any impact on how the story changes. Seema Pahwa & Kiku Sharda are royally wasted, Indra Kumar has the potential to do much better with characters like these.
