The name A. R. Murugadoss raises our expectation, and seeing him return as director with Akira has certainly has! The power-packed trailer shows AR Murugadoss teaming up with fire-brand Sonakshi Sinha, and it is badass AF! Akira is the remake of Tamil blockbuster, ‘Mouna Guru.’ The movie releases on 2nd September and also stars Anurah Kashyap, Konkana Sen and Akshay Kumar in a guest appearance.
Akira gives Sonakshi a great platform to shed her damsel-in-distress and gaon-ki-chorri image and play the hard-hitting character. In the trailer, the actress can be seen in a gritty avatar, who is out to kick ass and seek vengeance. Sonakshi plays the role of a college student who shifts to the city of Mumbai with her family. Though she is a small-town girl, Akira is more than adept at handling the bullies and the goons.
For Akira, the actress underwent a rigorous martial arts training schedule. The effort that went into training translates beautifully onscreen as the actress kicks some major ass effortlessly! This movie most definitely marks the rise of Sonakshi as an action heroine.
Though Anurag has made big-screen appearances earlier, this is his first full-fledged role. Anurag plays the role of a formidable villain to the fierce Akira. He breathes life into the character of a corrupt cop, and makes his part stand out, even in the trailer! Hopefully, like his previous onscreen appearance as Bunty Bhaiya in Tigmanshu Dhulia’s Shagird, this one will be memorable too!
However, the question remains so as to whether India is ready to accept a female-centric action movie, where there is no hero to save the day? Akira is one of the few movies in Indian cinema to have a female action heroine. Maybe the acche din are finally here for the Indian cinema!
