In her post, Twinkle was seen lauding Akshay’s movie. She likewise uncovered that the movie made her laugh in the first half and cry through the second. She likewise shared that the film is a ‘reality that we wish didn’t exist.’
Twinkle penned, “Raksha Bandhan made me laugh in the first half and cry through the second. A movie about the India we all pretend doesn’t exist. A reality that we wish didn’t exist. We have changed terms, from ‘dowry’ to ‘gifts’ but in homes across social-economic strata, variations of the custom loom large. The wonderful Aanand Rai has skilfully built a world where siblings tease each other, support each other and ultimately triumph together. The challenge with altering mindsets is that these conversations circulate largely among the already-converted. It’s perhaps only cinema that has the power to burrow into the minds and hearts of people across the board. Raksha Bandhan may make you smile and crack up, but I dare you to leave the theatre dry-eyed:) #rakshabandhan.” Have a look:
The movie likewise features Sadia Khateeb, Sahejmeen Kaur, Smrithi Srikanth and Deepika Khanna. The movie will be clashing with Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor Khan’s ‘Laal Singh Chaddha’.
