Akshay Kumar is getting ready for his third release of Raksha Bandhan, which will be his third release of the year. The actor has not had the best year with back to back flops and will be trying to get back to his best with the Aanand L. Rai directorial. Twinkle Khanna, Akshay’s wife and writer, has now given a good review for the upcoming movie.
Twinkle took to Instagram to share her review of the movie. Sharing a video from the movie, she wrote that the movie’s first half made her laugh and then the second half made her cry.
“A movie about the India we all pretend doesn’t exist. A reality that we wish didn’t exist. We have changed terms, from ‘dowry’ to ‘gifts’ but in homes across social-economic strata, variations of the custom loom large,” she added.
The rather detailed review also had big praise for Rai and how he was able to bring the relationships of the characters to the screen. Khanna also ended her review by daring the viewers to leave the theatre without a teary eye.
Written by Himanshu Sharma and Kanika Dhillon, the family drama revolves around a brother who has devoted his life for his sisters and their future. Apart from Akshay, the movie also stars Bhumi Pednekar, Sadia Khateeb, Sahejmeen Kaur, Smrithi Srikanth and Deepika Khanna in important roles.
Akshay Kumar was previously seen in Bachchhan Paandey and Samrat Prithviraj, both of which were duds at the box office despite a lot of fanfare ahead of their release. Raksha Bandhan, which could put an end to Akshay’s streak of flops, is set to hit theaters on August 11.
