The cast of Thank God
Ajay Devgn is seen in the full costume avatar of Chitragupta which could be another interesting factor for the fans to be excited. Siddharth Malhotra is playing the poor real estate agent, Ayaan Kapoor who is dead, currently in heaven. Rakul Preet Singh is playing Ayaan’s wife, Ruhi Kapoor. Apart from these three other supporting actors are Kiku Sharda as Ayaan’s colleague along with Seema Pahwa and Urmila Kothari as his mother and sister respectively. Nora Fatehi has a special appearance in the Hindi version of the Sri Lankan song “Manike Mage Hithe”.
Directed by Indra Kumar Thank God is again a moral-based film with humor intended to make the audience intact. The movie was produced by Bhushan Kumar under the banner of T-Series and Anand Pandit along with Krishan Kumar, Ashok Thakeria and many more.
Thank God Box Office Failure
Thank God was released on 25th October, during the Diwali season yet it failed to even recover the budget funds. A huge loss is upon the maker’s shoulders, as they wish to rescue themselves by the OTT release after a six-week gap from the theatrical release. There have been several claims for the reason for the commercial failure. The most common one is the simultaneous release of the blockbuster hero, Akshay Kumar’s Ram Setu.
Ram Setu completely squashed Thank God in the Box Office. The movie was also criticized for its poor screenplay, fans have credited the acting skills of Siddharth and Ajay that helped them earn the little collection they did.
Thank God Plot
The story of Thank God revolves around Ayaan Kapoor, a narcissist and indebted businessman who intends to launder his black money through his real estate business. He finds himself troubled by his 26 crore debt due to demonetisation. During this phase, he meets with a car accident and wakes up in heaven and that is how the plot starts to develop. In heaven, he meets with Yamdoot YD (Mahesh Balraj) and Chitragupta CG, played by Ajay Devgn who presents him with the Game of Life.
If he loses this game he will go to hell but winning it will give him the opportunity to be back on Earth with his family and finish the unfinished business.
The story develops slowly with some punch lines here and there. The oversimplified storyline makes a good watch for pure entertainment and pass-time purpose. Siddharth Malhotra as Ayaan Kapoor fulfills his role as the main lead. Ajay Devgn is seen in his new avatar as Chitragupta convincing enough to keep the watchers in their seats. Nora Fatehi’s sizzling dance on ‘Manike’ wakes up the viewers to wait up for the climax but there isn’t one. The story ends with the family and social lesson which does not surprise us at all. Thank God lacks climax and wow moments even though it is all about Karma which could’ve been a good plot twist.
OTT Release of Thank God
Ajay Devgn does have a separate fan following who are desperately eager for the OTT release of Thank God. A group of excited cine-lovers are those who either missed it because of the festive season while there are some who preferred Akshay Kumar’s Ram Setu over a fantasy comedy film. Whatever might be the reason but there are viewers who are expecting Thank God’s OTT premier desperately. Usually, box office films take six weeks to finally make it to the online platforms and so is expected from this movie. Counting from its theatrical release date, Thank God is most probably scheduled to be premiered on the first week of December on the OTT platforms.
Thank God is now available on Amazon Prime.
Thank God received mixed reviews but from its box office collection, it is commercially a flop.
Thank God has been adapted from a Danish movie named “Sorte Kugler” meaning “what goes around”.
Thank God earned a total box office collection of 48 crores worldwide.
