Akshay Kumar nostalgia


 

 

 

It’s a good thing that he has lined up a number of projects because I am waiting for his movies with an aching heart. Yes,  I love Akki to death. I don’t care if I don’t like some of the movies he is in.  Seeing him is just like a gush of fresh air.  He is my big Punjabi bwoy. He electrifies the screen with his charismatic smile and his energetic larger than life persona.  His eternal optimism jumps out of the screen, takes you by the hand and swirls you round and round. That’s why I need him to be omnipresentis in Bollywood.

Geez, I just created a new word No, I didn’t.  But you need to create a new word to describe Akshay Kumar. I think it’s his humanity, his humility that is so infectious, or is it that he reminds you of all these irresistible men who will always crack a joke on your behalf, refuse to become entirely adult, play with the kids at a party… this youthfulness, this joyfulness, the honesty that we love in children, all of that is preserved in Akki.

I watch and re-watch movies that wouldn’t have left a mark if it wasn’t for him. He always makes me feel better. He is my life’s viagra. It’s okay to say that, yes? :-)

 

 

 

 

Do yourself a favor and watch one of his movies when the horizon looks dark and you mull over daily challenges and nuisances and there is not a shred of energy left in you. That’s when you need to pick one of his movies:

if you need help which one to choose, go to the Indian Cinema Board… :-)
