Abhiram (Naga) travels to the United States in search of work, starts his own job, falls in love, becomes successful and arrogant all at the same time. He chooses to go back and fix himself by thanking everyone who helped him get to where he is after his lady love (Raashi) left him since he is now a stone-hearted guy.

Thank You Movie Review: Script Analysis

Everything you've read thus far is true. Nothing more or less. Only that much. Vikram Kumar appeared to be in the mood to produce an antidote to his good filmmaking, and some wealthy individuals blindly sponsored it because they believed in Kumar's abilities. There is no logical explanation for the boring product that has resulted from this merger of bright persons.

Thank you tale, written by B.V.S. Ravi and credited to Kumar and Mukund Pandey, is a mash-up of bits and parts from many films about a guy who looks back on his life and tries to straighten out the mess he caused or sparked. Throughout the production, it seemed that "this is clichéd, but you know what this narrative requires" was the most frequently spoken statement.

There are some real moments in the film. For example, when a female leaves a guy for his improvement and there is reasoning behind it, and she suffers as a result. Or when two archenemies finally meet after two decades to find redemption. The remainder, though, is a dull blend of too many things. Furthermore, the timing is perplexing. Because in 2003, Abhi is a beardless, addiction-free youngster, but by the following year, he has a full-grown beard and professional smoking abilities. And why is he the only one who is getting older? And why make him appear like a conventional arrogant businessman with grey hair, especially at 35-36?

There isn't much redemption for the viewer, unlike Abhi on film, since the ones generating it don't feel the need. Because the foundation is sluggish, the present existence is so uninteresting that the past loses its hold. They make Abhi communicate to his soul that comes out of his body after he goes through something comparable to a cardiac attack and becomes fine without medical health since there is no attempt to influence the character of who guides Abhi.

Also, how leniently does this film handle women? Nobody tells you how Abhi and his mother become wealthy again in a new town after eloping from the old one with nothing. Worse, the mother vanishes without trace. Raashi's character is reduced to a single objective with no complexities.

 

Thank You Movie Review: Star Performance

Naga Chaitanya tries much too hard to make this all appear meaningful. He performs well within his skills and adapts to the stage of his life that he desires. The college section is the most spectacular, as is the teen section. The present is only a parody.

Raashi Khanna is a wailing girlfriend with little depth. I'm guessing she's an orphan because no one mentions her relatives. Malavika Nair only has a few solid sequences to work with. Avika Gor, too, although she's nearly insignificant. Sai Sushant Reddy excels in what he does.

Thank You Movie Review: Direction, Music

Vikram Kumar appears to be taking a vacation from producing quality films. Thank You is towards the bottom of his filmography, and everything about it is corny.

When the tale shifts to memories, PC Sreeram strives to provide a visual flavour to this universe. He manages to create an aesthetically appealing environment in sections, but what can he do if the basis is weak?

 

Thank You Movie Review: The Last Word

Thank you for yet another sloppy film about a manchild attempting to heal things with no layers or meaning. We are entitled to better.
