Bell Bottom Trailer Review: Super Hero Akshay Kumar Flying High!

Bell Bottom Super Hero Akshay Kumar Flying High

Bell Bottom looks like the  kind of inspirational cinema where   the audience will clap and whistle the minute  the hero  confronts  Mrs Indira Gandhi…yes,  she  is in it too. God and  the Pm know, they need a  saviour. Who  better  equipped then Mr Bell Bottom..yes that’s  the codename for  our hero. Thank God he  doesn’t wear drainpipe trousers.

In case we miss the point, there are  close-ups  of  the Superstar’s  billowing  trousers.

Yup, there is  a  certain flair about  Akshay Kumar. He is lean and lithe, slippery and sinewy. Enemies, better watch it! Even Mrs Gandhi  acknowledges  his  super powers. I must say the  actress  playing the formidable former  prime minister  strikes the right notes. I don’t know  who she is. I  tried to find out but hit a deadend. Someone  from the  team  told me, ‘Sir she is  the band mutthi of our film’. Mrs G  has been called  a lot of names in her  time.Never that.

I did get  a Caroline  Bernstein playing the  Iron Lady, Margaret Thatcher, though  .Whether  she is  as  good as Meryl Steep  in The Iron Lady, only time will tell. Fingers  crossed.

Bell Bottom suggests  that  India  is  not country but an  “idea”. Ek soch.  What an idea, Sirji.  It’s time we  stopped looking at  the country and  its burning problems in abstracts and tackled them  headlong. The problem here is a series of hijackings .

Mrs G  says, let’s get Bell Bottom. Cut to Akshay Kumar  barging into  a man doing his  potty. The  bottom seems  never too far from  this hero’s state  of  mind.Oh before I forget, Vaani  Kapoor  plays  Bellbottom’s wife. She  gets to say “I Love  You” on the phone before he  takes  off for his  mission to save  our country , marriage  be damned.

To its credit , Bell Bottom does  have  a certain spin to its storytelling. The aerial shots are   impressively mounted. And the film like  a  cross  between Akshay’s  Baby and Airlift.   I don’t know  if  Tom Cruise and his Top Gun  have reason to feel insecure.  But I am pretty sure bell bottoms  will comeback in vogue  after August  19 . Bottoms  up .

Oh,  a disclaimer  at  the start  of the trailer  tells us the story  is  BASED  on  facts . But  the treatment is fictional.Right.We believe you.
