The trailer for Akshay Kumar’s new film, Laxmmi Bomb, was released on Friday, and it has got everyone talking online.
In the Hindi remake of the Tamil comedy-horror Kanchana, Akshay Kumar has transformed himself into a saree-clad ghost. The movie is being helmed by Raghava Lawrence who also starred and directed the original flick.
His hilarious look for the upcoming movie has provided ample fuel to the meme-making machines, and they created quite a buzz, which only got amplified when the film poster was released.
Within just a few hours of its release, it started trending on YouTube, garnering over 5 million views.
And #MostViewed_Trailor_Laxmmi Bomb became the top trend on Saturday as the fans kept talking about it and meme-makers continued showering new memes around the movie.
Directed by Raghava Lawrence, the movie is all set to be released virtually on November 9 on Disney+ Hotstar and will keep people entertained during the Diwali period.
The over 3-minute trailer begins with Akshay comically saying “Jis din sach mein mere saamne bhoot aaya na, toh maa kasam choodiyan pehen lunga, choodiyan (The day I see a ghost, I swear on my mother, I will wear bangles in my hands).”
In what one can perceive of the film’s storyline from the trailer is that the lead actor is captured by the spirit of a transgender, who is on a mission. The film’s trailer is a perfect mix of entertaining one-liners and a catchy song Burj Khalifa.
In the upcoming flick, which is a ‘circus of family and ghosts’, Akshay will be seen playing the role of a transgender and Kiara Advani will play the heroin on the movie.
The trailer of the Laxmmi Bomb reminds us of old movies where the transgender community was represented stereotypically. It is quite evident that Akshay Kumar is trying to strengthen the story with some situational comedy and songs.
As soon as Akshay’s odd transformation along with the catchy dialogues caught attention of the meme-makers, they started coming up with more funny stuff.
What we can expect after watching Laxmmi Bomb trailer
Akshay Kumar seems promising fans both fun and scares in this upcoming movie.
The Laxmmi Bomb trailer shows Akshay, the lead character, getting possessed by a woman’s spirit, and he starts acting like a female as his body is under her control.
The film seems trying to create the mood for a horror-comedy, though it reminds the viewers of the stereotypical treatment that Hindi cinema has been doing historically.
But we hope Laxmmi Bomb will somehow avoid those conventional images of the transgender community and tell a story that’s gender-sensitive in the end.
Akshay Kumar posted a thank you message on Twitter.
