We’re just a day away from witnessing the big box office between Akshay Kumar’s Raksha Bandhan and Aamir Khan’s Laal Singh Chaddha. Here, at Koimoi’s How’s The Hype?’, Akshay has always witnessed a good response from the voters. So let’s find out how his upcoming RB has fared here.
In ‘How’s The Hype?’, we conduct Twitter polls for a particular movie’s songs, trailers and other promotional stuff. Then the average of such polls is taken as results, which are published a day or a couple of days before the movie’s release. Now, let’s get back to the results of the Aanand L Rai directorial.
The trailer gives the vibes of a film rooted in culture and reality and has a good old feel of a typical Bollywood entertainer. It has some light-hearted funny moments and a very touching brother-sister bond. Playing high on emotions, the trailer is edgy and entertaining. It feels like Akshay Kumar is playing on his home ground after back-to-back duds like Bachchhan Paandey and Samrat Prithviraj. On Twitter, it received a huge 83% of positive votes.
