The trailer of Akshay Kumar and Kiara Advani starrer, Laxmmi Bomb, was dropped on Friday by Fox Star Hindi. Apart from Akshay and Kiara, film also stars Tusshar Kapoor, Sharad Kelkar, Tarun Arora and Ashwini Kalsekar. The movie is the remake of 2011 Tamil film Muni 2: Kanchana directed by Raghava Lawrence, who is also directing the Hindi version. From the trailer it can be elicited that Akshay Kumar’s character gets possessed by a spirit of a woman. However, the movie gives out a stereotypical portrayal of transgenders, like displayed in old films. It is yet to conclude that our thoughts are aligning properly. It can only be done once the movie is released and we are hoping film respects all the genders. The trailer somewhat reminds us of Bhool Bhulaiyaa which was also a horror-comedy movie by Akshay.
Laxmmi Bomb Trailer Review | Akshay Kumar-Kiara Advani Steal the Show:
Akshay Kumar’s realistic acting and Kiara Advani’s grooves definitely make the comedy and songs spiced up to next level.
In an interview, Akshay had earlier said, “Horror-comedy is my favourite genre. I had done Bhool Bhulaiyaa before this one. I had heard this story many years ago and I always wanted to make this film. It was like my passion project, but it kept getting delayed for one reason or the other.”
“In my entire 30-year-long career, this has been my most intensive role mentally. I’ve never experienced such a character before, with this kind of action, reaction, body language. Credit for this goes to my director. He introduced me to a version of me that I didn’t know even existed. Also, I had to be cautious of playing it with full honesty without offending any community. For the first time, I willingly gave so many takes and retakes, so that every shot is captured to its maximum potential. Even after doing some 150 films, I was very excited to be on set every single day, pushing my boundaries, learning more about myself. This film has taught me more about gender equality. Be anything you want, just don’t be ignorant.”
The movie Laxmmi Bomb premiers on November 9 Disney+ Hotstar. Drop in your thoughts about the movie in the comments below.
