Akshay Kumar is back with his new movie, Ram Setu after his earlier releases like Bachchan Pandey, Samrat Prithviraj, Raksha Bandhan and Cuttputlli, this year. It is absolutely unimaginable to think that a big star like Akshay Kumar to complete so many films and release them back to back in one year. Unfortunately though Bachchan Pandey, Samrat Prithviraj and Raksha Bandhan failed at the box office. Akshay Kumar is looking for a big hit with Ram Setu.
Ram Setu deals with an archeologist being asked to find the historical and scientific evidences for Mythological Ram Setu mentioned in Ramayana. Akshay Kumar has been doing films that talk about Indian history and social, cultural, scientific achivements. But Akshay Kumar has also been critiqued for trying to lean to one ideology and overtly rely on biopics or dramas that structure around simple social statements.
Akshay Kumar got trolled for advertising his idea about completing any kind of movie in 50 days or under 90-100 days. Still, Ram Setu has Godfather villain and upcoming Telugu actor Satya Dev in an important role. Jacqueline Fernandez and Nusratt Baruccha are playing leading lady roles. While VFX could have been better, film might find audiences just because of the storyline it has taken up. Dr. Chandrapraksh Dwivedi gave story and dialogues to the film while Abhishek Sharma written and directed it.
