Friday saw the release of the first real biggie of 2011, Anees Bazmee`s Akshay Kumar, Sunil Shetty , Irrfan Khan, Sonam Kapoor and Rimi Sen starrer, `Thank You`. This time around though the usual high buzz for an Anees Bazmee and Akshay Kumar starrer was quite less and so the film saw a mixed start, below the mark at the multiplexes and above average at the single screens. The good thing is that the film has seen a pick up in the latter shows, but it has to show a much better run during the weekend to succeed.
