Welcome Back- Movie Review


Ridiculously corny, not funny, not entertaining and not worth your time or money in spite of the huge star cast, production costs involved and the so called legacy of ‘Welcome’.

Rating- 1.5/5

Thank You- Movie Review


Thank You is a movie for the masses. If that’s your forte, read on; and if it’s not, read if you’re just curious!

Akshay Kumar, like Salman Khan is the movie Partner, is one of those relationship fixers. Now, Irrfan Khan, Bobby Deol and Sunil Shetty are cheating on their wives, like in the movies Biwi No.1, Masti, Shaadi No.1, No Entry, etc. The wives get suspicious and get Akshay Kumar for professional help and catch their husbands red handed. But the husbands are also smart. On finding out that their wives have hired a “jaasoos” to find out about their secret love lives, they also seek help from the same guy (Akshay Kumar) and of course, there are many other twists and complications to make the movie run for a little more than 2.5 hours.

As I already mentioned in my summary of the story, Anees Bazmi’s ‘Thank You’ is a mixture of tons of ‘married-husbands-cheating-and-wives-finding-out’ kind of movies. Super predictable only with new faces. Sonam Kapoor, Bobby Deol and Irrfan Khan looked completely out of place! Akshay Kumar was good but he really needs to stop doing roles in which he’s helping people out like he did in ‘Mujhse Shaadi Karogi’ and ‘Bhool Bhulaiya’! Sunil Shetty was really funny in some scenes in a very natural way which is totally awesome considering he’s not your typical hero! Rimi Sen and Celina Jaitley were just dressed in bad clothes with bad make-up and the acting bit doesn’t even count!

The Mallika Sherawat song was very stupid and it didn’t look like a New Year’s Party to me as it was meant to! The songs are quite useless and that stupid flute tune they kept playing was also thoda annoying! I loved the locations though, especially the houses…well scouted for!

Overall, Thank You is not a movie for everyone and needn’t have been made. I’m giving one star to Sunil Shetty and one star aise hi. Ghar pe tv pe dekh lo toh chalega! And for the first time Thank You has come after Welcome! (This joke was meant for those who will understand it! :P)

Rating– 2/5
