The year 2020 has not many movies released because of the coronavirus pandemic. Many producers and directors moved towards OTT platforms for their movies to be released. One of the most awaited movies of 2020, Akshay Kumar and Kiara Advani starer Laxmii released on Disney+ Hotstar. Laxmii is directed by Raghav Lawrence. The movie will give you chills with some laughter moments, but the weak screenplay spoils the fun.
The story of the movie starts with mom taking her kid back home and warning her child not to look at the barren land. She tells her that the barren land is haunted. Akshay Kumar and Kiara Advani are married. Akshay Kumar plays the character of Asif and Kiara Advani portrays the character of Rashmi. Due to inter-religion marriage, Rashmi’s parents do not accept this marriage. But after three years, Rashmi’s mom calls them together for their 25th wedding anniversary. Akshay Kumar who does not believe in ghosts enters the haunted place to play cricket with kids. But as soon as he places the stumps, paranormal activities start taking place. Akshay Kumar starts behaving strangely. Soon he behaves like a transgender. The family realizes that a transgender called Laxmii possessed Akshay Kumar. Why Laxmii possessed Akshay Kumar? Watch out the movie to find out.
Laxmii is the official remake of the Tamil movie Kanchana. Akshay Kumar knows how to put characters alive on the screen. Kiara Advani has not much to do in the movie but did a decent job as a supportive wife. Rajesh Sharma, Ayesha Raza Mishra, Manu Rishi Chadha, Ashwini Kalsekar played the supportive character nicely. It was Sharad Kelkar who nailed with his performance. He proved once again how good an actor he is, first Tanhaji An Unsung Warrior and now Laxmii. There are two major songs in the movie. Bam Bole has an amazing choreography, probably the best-choreographed song of Akshay Kumar. Director Raghav Lawrence tried his best to give the treat of a good movie to the audiences. But honestly, if you have watched Kanchana then you may not find it above par.
The director has ended the movie on a note with a scope of a sequel. Overall, the movie Laxmii has thrills, emotions, but forced humor and weak writing disappoint the most. It can be watched with a full family if you are free. We give the movie Laxmii 2.5 stars out of 5. Have you watched the movie? How did you find it? Let us know in the comments below.
