The trailer of Sonakshi Sinha’s much talked about film Akira was launched today at an event in Mumbai. From her fierce look in the posters of Akira, we knew this babe is going to be quite dabangg in this film. And surely enough, Sonakshi has impressed us as the ‘action hero’ of this A R Murugadoss film! She kicks ass and how! Not just with her words but her action that is her maar-peet! And she does not have a hero who comes and saves her (thank god for that!)
One of her lines is, “Please maaf kar do. Already mere college ke 3 saal barbaad ho chuke hai…abb agar tum logo ko marungi toh mai phir se musibat me pad jaungi“. Just so Salman Khan, no?
What’s more, filmmaker Anurag Kashyap seems very good, at least from the scenes we saw in the trailer of Akira. He has appeared in a movie before in a cameo and even did a television commercial, but to see him in a full-fledged role on cinema is a first. And Anurag is cool as the baddie in Akira!
Akira also stars Konkana Sen Sharma as a cop in uniform, probably for the first time. The film is a remake of Tamil film Mouna Guru in which the male lead is the protagonist. The story is similar, where Akira (Sonakshi), a small town girl comes to Mumbai for her education. Some situations lead her to a fight with a corrupt cop (Anurag) and what happens to her next is the story.
The film’s trailer shows is a movie in flashback; Akira is in jail and she is given shocks to screw up her mental health, as we see towards the end. So what happens to her?
Watch the trailer of Akira here! The movie releases on September 2, 2016.
