tractor raksha bandhanAkshay Kumar’s Family Drama, Out. The film is directed by Anand L Rai and written by Himanshu Sharma and Kanika Dhillon, and also stars Bhumi Pednekar, Sadia Khatib, Sajmeen Kaur, Deepika Khanna and Smirithi Srikanth.
The trailer shows Akshay as a clone of Mariada Purushottam Ram (referred to as such in the teaser), who wants to sell her kidneys to marry off her four sisters, played by Sadya, Sajmin, Deepika and Smirithi. And only when he performs his “fraternal duties” will he marry his childhood sweetheart, which Bhumi does.
The direction of Aanand L Rai seems rather dated and the movie clearly builds on the strength of star Akshay Kumar, who has had two successive failures – Bachchan Pandey and Samrat Prithviraj. Only now will time tell if this new movie does anything for the actor.
