Thank God is just another movie by director Indra Kumar. The film is purely based on the paap and punya (sin and charity), swarg and Nark (heaven and hell) concepts of Hindu mythology. In the past, Bollywood has witnessed many such stories based on almost similar concepts.

The story revolves around Ayan Kapoor (Sidharth Malhotra), who lives with his wife Ruhi Kapoor (Rakul Preet Singh) and daughter Pihu (Kiara Khanna). Ayan is in the real estate business and always engages in illegal and unfair practices. One day, he has an accident and gets hospitalised in a critical condition. During his treatment, when he was between life and death, he met a modern Chitragupt, Mr. CG (Ajay Devgn), who played a game of life with him. According to the game rules, if Ayan wins, he will go to heaven; if he loses, he will go to hell. The majour portion of the film is about the game show of life between Mr. CG and Ayaan. Does Ayan win the game? Does he really get everything back on track? One must watch it to know the answers to all these questions. 

The actors Ajay Devgn, Rakul Preet Singh, and Sidharth Malhotra have done justice to their parts, but the poor storyline actually disbalanced all the good things in the film. Director Indra Kumar tried his level best to create humour in almost every scene, but he could not succeed in his mission. The same storyline could have been presented in a much better way.

Although music does not have a big role in the film, but the melodious music of Amar Mohile is quite impressive.

Overall, this is an average film. This is a nice attempt to entertain the audience with good comic scenes. Although the film does not meet the expectations of the audience on many parameters, it still, to a greater extent, impresses the audience. So, it would be recommended to watch it at least once.
