Akshay Kumar is fast turning into the Manoj Kumar of our times. However, instead of addressing key burning issues of national importance, Akki chooses to harp on about the greatness of our country which is still more than what most people are doing. Airlift falls in line with a number of serious movies that Akki has done in the recent past like Baby and to some extent, Holiday. But going by the trailer, this one seems to be the most realistic one of all. Director Raja Krishna Menon maintains a barely noticeable sepia tinged look to the whole film and we really hope Sanjay Gupta (Ahem-Jazbaa-ahem!) is taking notes.
We simply love how he has managed to craft an emotional thriller of sorts instead of a plain boring action film. Akshay fits the role like a glove and Nimrat Kaur and he make a pretty pair. We aren’t exactly expecting a brilliant and incisive historical drama but this little film could well be worth a trip to the theaters. Do check out the trailer below and let us know what you think!
