Bollywood offering Thank You takes an honest look at dishonesty

Some of the most loveable names of the Indian film industry unite in a sassy multi-starrer, ‘Thank You’, released in cinemas on Friday across UK.

Raj, Yogi and Vikram are best friends, business partners, serial womanisers and happily married. Happy, because their naive wives have no clue that their husbands cannot resist the temptation of a flutter of the eyelids. This picture perfect world is rocked when Raj’s wife, Sanjana, begins to suspect her husband’s infidelity and hires the suave private detective, Kishan, to tail him. Kishan has built his reputation as a man who saves marriages by getting erring husbands to mend their ways. In this particular case, however, his overwhelming attraction towards Sanjana means he may not be acting with the best of intentions. What follows is a crazy cat and mouse game, with Kishan trying to catch the husbands engaged in misdemeanours and mischief as they try to mislead him off their trail.

Filmed in Canada, ‘Thank You’ is a film that lifts the lid on extramarital affairs. Maestro of comedy Akshay Kumar is at the helm of a powerhouse of screen talent that includes fellow stars Sonam Kapoor, Bobby Deol, Irrfan Khan, Suneil Shetty, Celina Jaitley and Rimi Sen in a battle of the sexes which will transform matrimony to acrimony. After the staggering box office success of ‘Singh is Kinng’ and the earlier ‘Welcome’, the superstar Akshay Kumar teams up once more with much-loved comedy director Anees Bazmee for another surefire hit which will have audiences in stitches well after the end credits roll.

Audiences will also be indulged by a hypnotic item number delivered by the showgirl of Indian cinema, Mallika Sherawat, in the infectiously catchy ‘Razia’ – part of a memorable collection of songs that comprise musical maverick Pritam’s chart-topping soundtrack.
