Laxmmi Bomb Sari, Wrong Number

I confess I  am disappointed  with the trailer  of  Laxmmi Bomb. It tries so hard to be funny,it hurts!  It  makes the same  mistake that Priyadarshan made in his worst comedies.  It thinks the harder the characters scream the more amused the audience would get.And if they run helter-skelter around the house , the plot I sure to find the comic cosmos.

 Good that  we will see this  film indoors during  Diwali.  Maybe it will drown the  sound of exploding crackers  outside. In the meanwhile you can  always pump up the volume in the trailer when   your wife is  arguing about the unattended bills  or  the unkempt  lawn or  that long due haircut(hers  or yours).

Laxmmi Bomb is  the noisiest entertainer  of the year. Coolie No 1 will just have to find  another way  to get  our attention.  Maybe Varun Dhawan mouthing one line that makes sense  would do the trick.

Not everyone can pull off inanity. Akshay Kumar can. He is in his element as he yells out lines like, ‘Tera pati tera hai  lekin tedha hai.’ Errrr,ok then.

   The  supporting cast  has the talented Ayesha  Raza  as  the matriarch. She seems more well fleshed in the script than Kiara Advani who redefines the wallflower effect, looking as vital to the trailer as Kamal R Khan to Sushant Singh’s  case.
Laxmmi Bomb  looks like a one-man show.Akshay gets into a  Sari with matching bangles and  banshee  screams not to explore the feminine side  of his  personality . But to show us what a  brave  actor he  is.

‘Look at me. I can wear a Sari and  look  happy. Can the Khan superstars ever do that? No? Then watch me, applaud me.’

That’s the message  for  all of us. And we better take  note. Or else watch out. Arnab Goswami is watching. More dangerous than any  ghost.
