The trailer of the movie Laxmmi Bomb, starring Akshay Kumar in the lead role released on 9th of November, Monday, directed by Raghava Lawrence to keep the audience entertained in this Diwali on Disney+Hotstar.
When Laxmmi Bomb’s poster was released, it created an online buzz. In the movie, Akshay Kumar transformed himself into a Saree-covered ghost. The movie is Comedy-horror based. Within just few hours of release of its trailer, its started trending on the Youtube platform, collecting over 5 million views. The catchy dialogues of the movie fascinated the meme-makers of twitter and other Social media’s and soon hilarious memes were overwhelmed all the Social sites.
Alongside Akshay Kumar, the film also stars Kiara Advani, Tusshar Kapoor, Sharad Kelkar, Tarun Arora and Ashwini Kalsekar. Kiara Advani plays the role of Akshay Kumar’s wife. Laxmi Bomb is the remake of Tamil Movie Kanchana (2011), directed my Raghava Lawrence, who is also the director of the Hindi Version (2020).
Akshay also shared the “Laxmmi Bomb” trailer on social media, posting, “Jahan kahi bhi hain, wahi ruk jaayyein aur taiyyaar ho jaayyein dekhne #LaxmmiBomb ka trailer, kyunki barasne aa rahi hai Laxmmi! #LaxmmiBombTrailer out now. #YeDiwaliLaxmmiBombWali”.
In the trailer, we see Akshay Kumar’s character gets possessed by a spirit of a transgender person who is out to seek revenge and he starts acting like the one where his body is under that spirit’s control. While the film is trying to create the mood for a horror-comedy, it reminds us of old Hindi movies where the transgender community was represented in quite a stereotypical way.
It is yet to be seen if Laxmmi Bomb will avoid those clichés and tell a story that’s sensitive to all genders concerned.
