Synopsis

LAXMII narrates the story of a man, Asif [Akshay Kumar], possessed by the ghost of a transgender, who had been brutally murdered. The family [his wife and in-laws] soon realise Laxmii’s motive: Revenge. LAXMII is nowhere close to the original Tamil film [KANCHANA], although one notices modifications in the narrative

LAXMII narrates the story of a man, Asif [Akshay Kumar], possessed by the ghost of a transgender, who had been brutally murdered. The family [his wife and in-laws] soon realise Laxmii’s motive: Revenge. LAXMII is nowhere close to the original Tamil film [KANCHANA], although one notices modifications in the narrative to cater to the Hindi audience. The problem with LAXMII lies in its weak screenwriting.The horror tropes don’t leave much of an impact. Raghava Lawrence is letdown by the writing. Unfortunately, LAXMII is an opportunity lost.The background score adds spunk to the proceedings, while the DoP captures the mood of the film right. The VFX — it has an important role to play here — is alright.The scene stealer here is — without a shred of doubt — Akshay KumarKiara. Advani looks gorgeous, but gets limited scope. The big surprise is Sharad Kelkar. He is excellent. LAXMII has a plethora of actors — Rajesh Sharma, Manu Rishi Chadha, Ayesha Raza, Ashwini Kalsekar, Tarun Arora and Prachee Shah — and each one of them is strictly okay. On the whole, LAXMII lacks the punch. One expected so much more from this film, but it clearly disappoints.
