Ajay Devgn, Sidharth Malhotra and Rakul Preet Singh's comedy drama film Thank God, directed by Indra Kumar, released in theatres on the occasion of Diwali. Thank God marked Ajay Devgn's fourth theatrical release and second as a lead, after Runway 34. The film locked horns with Ram Setu on the Govardhan Pooja day, which is generally considered as the biggest ticketing day of the year. Thank God was the second preference for the audience on Diwali day, while Ram Setu remained as the first choice. Both the films had low advances but had decent to good movement in terms of spot-bookings, through the day.

Thank God opened to lukewarm day 1 numbers of Rs. 8.25 cr to Rs. 9.15 cr nett.  The 3 leading multiplex chains contributed Rs. 3.79 cr. These numbers are decent in the normal scenario but not too good considering that the film released on the biggest day of the year, the Govardhan Pooja day. Thank God has failed to make it to the top 5 openings of 2022, and this is despite being a 2 hero film with a universal subject. The film has to hold well over the Diwali period, to leave a mark theatrically. The occupancy of Thank God meandered around the 25% mark for the day and it is one of the lowest occupancies for an A-list film, in a long time. With a combined total of Rs. 23 crore nett for the 2 Hindi releases, it can be deduced that both films have a lot to work on.

You can watch Thank God at a theatre near you.
