What an awful Diwali we are going to have during this year of the Coronavirus and the Lockdown! In case we need any further proof of how wretched the year is, just watch the special teaser of Akshay Kumar’s Laxmmi Bomb.
It is a dark and eerie tale of how a man named Laxman transforms into a transgender named Laxmmi.
Laxmi,as we all know is the Goddess of light who visits us every Diwali. And to celebrate this festival of the triumph of light over darkness, Bollywood has always provided us with ebullient bright sparkling films during Diwali such as Diwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge, Krissh , Happy New Year and Prem Rattan Dhan Payo.
This Diwali gets ready for the darkest film ever seen on the festive occasion. For those of us who have seen the original Tamil film Kanchana would know there is nothing even remotely festive about Laxmmi Bomb the story of a man who becomes possessed by the ghost of a woman seeking revenge for her murder and the murder of her family.
One hears Akshay Kumar was keen to release the film in movie theatres , for that’s where Laxmmi Bomb belongs. To release it on the home medium for an already-gloomy Covid-controlled Diwali is to add insult to injury.
