Raksha Bandhan Movie: Indian filmmaker Anand L Rai gives his very mediocre melodrama a campaigning message about the culture of dowry paying, though you’ll have to sit through a lot of un-feminist movies to reach it. In truth, Raksha Bandhan is primarily a vehicle for Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar, and its social purpose plays second fiddle to fanning his stardom.


Raksha Bandhan (R.B) is a story about celebrates family values, togetherness, love, joy, and even sacrifice, but most importantly, it is a story about rejoices one of the most precious and unique kinds of familial bond – the relationship between a brother and his sisters!

Raksha Bandhan Movie Story

Raksha Bandhan Story: Responsibility for the four sisters’ marriage rests on the shoulders of Lala Kedarnath, the eldest and only brother. What follows are his relentless efforts to ensure his sisters settled down in marriage before marrying Sapna, his childhood sweetheart. Will he be able to keep his promises, or does fate have other plans for him?

Raksha Bandhan Movie Story

Kumar plays Lala, a chaat seller in Old Delhi. Like Mrs. Bennet in Pride and Prejudice, Lala is in the predicament of finding husbands for his four sisters. He promised their mother on her deathbed not to tie the knot himself until marrying them off. The financial burden of saving for four dowries is a strain, and although his childhood sweetheart Sapna (Bhumi Pednekar) is waiting devotedly for him, her father issues an ultimatum: he’s got six months to offload his sisters.

What follows is some painfully unsubtle comedy poking fun at Lala’s apparently unmarriageable sisters. The exception is the eldest (Sadia Khateeb), conventionally beautiful and obedient Gayatri. Next in line Durga (Deepika Khanna) is overweight; Lakshmi (Smrithi Srikanth) is dark-skinned and thus deemed unattractive; the youngest, Saraswati (Sahejmeen Kaur), is a scrappy tomboy. The script throws out a line or two in their defense: in one scene, Durga refuses to be body shamed. But mostly, it feels like the audience is being invited to laugh along at their expense. The film’s message about women being in control of their own destiny comes too late to rescue these four; they are more a collection of stereotypes than actual characters.

Really, all the advance and character depth is reserved for selfless, noble-souled Lala. He hires a matchmaker (Seema Pahwa) and is willing to spare a kidney to pay for his sisters’ dowries. Late in the day, there is a genuinely moving section featuring a woman in post-marriage life, harassed by her husband and in-laws who see her as a cash cow – with awful consequences.

Raksha Bandhan Movie Akshay Kumar

After Bachchan Paandey and Samrat Prithviraj, Akshay Kumar is now gearing up for his third release of the year, Raksha Bandhan. The film also stars Bhumi Pednekar, Sadia Khateeb, Sahejmeen Kaur, Smrithi Srikanth, and Deepika Khanna. The trailer and the film’s songs have impressed everyone, and now moviegoers are keen to know the reviews of the film. Well, finally, the first review of Raksha Bandhan is out.

Censor board Umair gave the film 3.5 stars and wrote, “First Review #RakshaBandhan! It is a very desi, very Indian at heart touching, seeped in Bharat emotions. It talks of family bonding, It box in loads of desi sentiments in those last hours! Akshay Kumar Stole the Show all the way! #bhumipednekar & other four girls acted very well! The songs are very Soulful! Full-on Engaging Flick with Terrific Social Message. 3.5/5.

Why did Akshay Kumar’s Raksha Bandhan Movie fail at the box office? Netizens are in knots over the flop.

While the entire team of Raksha Bandhan went out and out to be visible to the watcher’s eye, the film, which was meant to make a cut because of its title on the occasion of Rakshabandhan, was least discussed on its release date.

‘What draws the audience to the theaters if not a big superstar?’ This has been the most asked question post-pandemic, and the only answer to this is ‘Audience’s Interest,’ which Anand L Rai’s Raksha Bandhanlacked. From the day Raksha Bandhan was announced to the time Anand L Rai’s team was busy promoting the film, this Akshay Kumar starrer managed to create no sound. Especially when the world was busy boycotting Aamir Khan’sLaal Singh Chaddha, why would anybody bother knowing where the Raksha Bandhan team is heading next to promote the film?

While the controversy over Laal Singh Chaddha made it to every news channel and was discussed on every social media platform, Raksha Bandhan came and went away in a spoof. The buzz around Laal Singh Chaddha was so loud that if Raksha Bandhan was notice, it was because the film was clashing with the Aamir Khan starrer. Well, it was the audience who failed to pay any attention to Anand L Rai’s directorial.

While the entire team of the film went out and out to be visible to the watcher’s eye, the film, which was meant to make a cut because of its title on the occasion of Rakshabandhan, was least discussed on its release date. The film went on, sank, and nobody bothered to care.

Is Raksha Bandhan Movie a True Story?

No, this allegation is completely wrong, however Akshay Kumar’s latest film, Raksha Bandhan is heavily inspired by another Indian film, Kathi Kantha Rao, which was released almost 12 years ago. Kathi Kantha Rao film was directed by E. V. V. Satyanarayana & featured Allari Naresh & Kamna Jethmalani in lead roles.

The cinematography of the film is good. The set of Delhi’s Chandni Chowk has been crafted well. If the songs and music are average, then the dialogues of the film are very regressive. If you like family films full of melodrama from the 80s, then you might like this film.
