Asif (Akshay Kumar) & Rashmi (Kiara Advani) are a happily married couple but with a predictable caveat. Rashmi’s parents didn’t accept them because their conservative thinking restricted them from accepting a Muslim son-in-law. Somehow on their 25th wedding anniversary, Rashmi’s mother Ratna (Ayesha Raza Mishra) convinces her husband Sachin (Rajesh Sharma) for having their daughter present at a party.
Asif is your practical man who doesn’t believe in ghosts and keeps chanting he’ll wear bangles if he ever encounters one. As shown everything in the trailer, Asif gets haunted by a spirit of a transwoman Laxmii (Sharad Kelkar) who is wandering to kill a group of people for her revenge. How this affects Rashmi’s family and what is Laxmii’s backstory is what the film is all about.
Akshay Kumar plays two roles in the film, Asif and Laxmii’s ghost and both are polarising when it comes to showcasing the actor in him. As Asif, he’s pretty ordinary and does something he can do while sleepwalking. But his portrayal as Laxmii is what wins him some brownie points as an actor. He just beautifully explodes in the song Bumbholle proving why he’s the perfect choice among the A-listers to do such kind of role.
