Writing and Direction
Indra Kumar has directed this movie; he has already mastered making successful comedy movies in the past. Again he has done a good direction, but he has directed the movie in a very old style. The screenplay of the movie is very funny. Many such funny scenes in the movie can make you laugh. Some one-liners in the movie can also make you think.
In some places, the movie is full of WhatsApp university quotes trying to guide your life. The touch of Vedic scriptures is also missing in the movie. There is no strong philosophy about death and morality throughout the movie. The makers of Bollywood think that the intellectual level of the Hindi audience is very low, but they need to change their mindset.
After understanding the matter in the first half hour, the audience waits for the movie to end. The story repeatedly goes back and forth in flashbacks to show the account of deeds. This movie is like a roller coaster ride that will make you laugh and cry. The climax of the movie is full of emotions. Overall, ‘Thank God’ is a pure family entertainer movie.
Thank God Movie Review: Acting
There are two people in the lead role in this movie. Sidharth Malhotra and Ajay Devgan. Ajay Devgan played the character of Chitragupta in the movie. At the same time, Siddharth Malhotra played the essence of the famous real estate businessman. Nora Fatehi is also seen in the movie, but her character is limited to an item girl.
If we talk about the actors’ acting in the movie, Ajay Devgan has done a good job. Sidharth Malhotra has also done a great job, and his performance is quite balanced in the movie. The chemistry between Sidharth Malhotra and Rakul Preet Singh looks good; the audience gives them much love. Nora Fatehi also appears as the main attraction in the movie.
Be it a comedy or a serious character, Ajay Devgan easily gets into the character. Here as a CG (ChitraGupt), he suits the personality of a harsh deity. Sidharth Malhotra has tried to imbibe his selfish and egotistical nature. However, sometimes he seems to need to catch the right expressions. There is no strong scene in Rakul’s part in the role of a police officer. The work of the rest of the cast of the movie is mediocre.
Music and Cinematography
The song and music of the movie are very average. The Hindi version of the superhit song Manike Mage Hithe will also be seen. Sri Lankan singer Yohani sings the song. This is the first time Yohani has sung her song in Hindi.
The background music in the movie is romantic, soulful, and melodious, enhancing the story. The music at the beginning of the movie adds a bit of life to the movie and the comedy. The camera work of the movie is also excellent. Aseem Bajaj does the cinematography of this movie.
Thank God Movie Review: Final Verdict
Thank God is a comedy-packed mass entertainer that delivers laughs and a beautiful message that will raise awareness in the audience. The message given by Chitragupta is the actual message of the movie that people believe in God. However, they do not believe in God’s message. They are trapped in lust, anger, attachment, greed, and ego. It is a must-watch movie as it has decent humour, lessons to learn, and is full of emotions.
Dozens of movies have been made on this subject. But once again, a filmmaker has tried to say something with his style. Thank God is a comedy movie which you will love watching. It has been shown in the movie that whenever a person gets a chance, he should do good deeds. After watching this movie, you are thinking about life may change. So, you can watch this movie alone or with your family.
Everything is good in the movie, from dialogue to acting. Most people have jealousy, anger, pride, lust, and confusion in their minds, but people keep trying to prove their evils as good. This is what the movie tries to show. This is an average Bollywood movie, which can be enjoyed with the family during this festive season.
