Director: Indra Kumar

Writer: Aakash Kaushik, Madhur Sharma

Cast: Ajay Devgn, Sidharth Malhotra, Rakul Preet Singh

Ajay Devgan Siddharth Malhotra and Rakul preet singh bring us a fantasy film directed by Indra kumar to ous for this Diwali, lets see why we should "Thank God" . 

The story of the movie revolves around the life of a man after death. Ayan Kapoor (Siddharth Malhotra), a real estate broker with over proportional ego suddenly wanders among the dead after an accident. He finds himself in 'Yamlok' when he opens his eyes. Then comes Chitragupta (Ajay Devgn) who plays a 'Game of Life' with Ayan. Will Ayan win the game?, what happened to his wife Ruhi (Rakul Preet)?, What are the conditions of Chitra Gupta in the Game?, Rules preconditions and postconditions of the "Game of Life '' form the rest of the story.

The theme of socio fantasy movies based on after death and Yamlok has been tried and tested many times and yet again "Thank God" comes with the same concept. The narration begins with showing us Ayans life in a comic way and also how he ignores his spouse, kids and family. This funny narration takes the most expected twist "the accident" which is much required for Ayan to reach Yamlok for the proceedings of the second half of the movie. 

In the second half, Ayan is shown the repercussions of his behavior with his family and others. The self-centered, egoist, and unapologetic acts are the cause of his present downfall as a human being were shown with a balance of fun and emotions. Unfortunately this fun gets predictable and repetitive. But the film scores in the final moments thanks to the predictable sentiment scenes again. 

Ajay Devgan as Chitra Gupt and Siddharth Malhotra as an ego centred Businessman met the expectations as far as the entertainment quotient is considered. Despite having an under developed character arc Rakul preet justified her minimal screen time, so did Norah Fatehi in the default stereotype content given to her. All other actors were appropriate.

Amar Mohile's background score was okay, there are remix songs in this movie that garner attention while others are forgettable. Asim Bajaj's cinematography was good and the production values are rich.
