Sayani Gupta's film Axone garners rave reviews!

After the massive success of Four More Shots Please! Season 2, Sayani Gupta's recently released film, Axone is garnering immense love from the critics and audiences.

A bittersweet comedy, the film is a satire that follows a bunch of Northeastern kids in Delhi who while attempting to organise a wedding party, find everything going wrong.  

Sayani's portrayal of a 23-year-old Nepali girl has been hugely appreciated in the film by the critics and audiences. With consistently impactful performances, she has carved a niche for herself and she is one of the very few actors who can effortlessly get into the skin of the character they are essaying.

Praising Sayani's character portrayal, reviewers wrote:

"The only actor who plays a Northeastern migrant but is not one in real life is Sayani Gupta. As she has proven several times in her impressive career, she can smoothly slip into the skin of a character with any background."

"There is no doubt Sayani Gupta is a great performer. Her casting addressed by Upasna’s layered ethnicity and Sayani too gives a great performance as a woman who does not really know if she belongs or not."

"The movie belongs to the underrated Sayani Gupta, who is fantabulous as the simplistic, naive Upasna. It is incredible to see her range as an actress, nailing the accent and her diction right just as she was believable as a tribal girl in Article 15 or the posher sports analyst in Inside Edge. This act shows you don't need prosthetics to pass yourself as Northeastern."

"Sayani puts her best step forward and tries to do justice to a challenging role."

Overwhelmed with the love, Sayani shares, "The response has been seriously overwhelming. I am very happy that everyone has showered so much love and appreciation to the film also cause it's a indie small film. Not sounding pompous, but I am generally pretty detached to my projects after I am done shooting for them. Cause you know what you have done. But for the first time, I was extremely nervous and anxious about what people from the Northeast would say about Axone.. and whether I was authentic or not. The choices I took were very risky and I didn't want to play it safe and hence the chances of it not working was also high. But the unbelievable response that one has received from literally thousands of messages coming in, appreciating the work and the film have been very validating. I am very grateful for each one of them for reaching out and telling me/ us, what the film has done. Also I am glad that a new set of audience has seen my work and tons of people have been messaging saying now they will watch my other work as well. We also need to realise that many people in the northeast states do not watch Netflix and had taken subscription only to watch Axone. There was a celebration around the film which is so heartening to witness! And I am also glad that critics have also given the film a lot of love. Means a lot to me and the entire team!'

The film is currently trending on its streaming platform, Netflix!
