Performance: Akshay Kumar steals the show with his wonderful performance. He is popular for social message oriented movies. Akshay Kuamr has delivered electrifying performance. The performance of Kiara Adavani is impressive. She is stunning in the Burj Khalifa song. Sharad Kelkar is the surprise package of the film Laxmii. Though he has less screen time, but he does extremely well with his feminine expressions. Aswini Kalsekar is ok in her comic role.
Technical: The movie Laxmii has brilliant production values. The background score, action choreography are the attractions on the technical front. There is nothing special in the storyline but the movie Laxmii carries a good social message. Amar Mohile’ music work is one of the major assets of the film. The cinematography work is amazing, and editing is top notch. Coming on the work of Raghav Lawrence, he made several changes to the original and does not create a good effect. There is no seriousness in few scenes and the movie has very less entertainment.
Analysis: Raghava Lawrence and Akshay Kumar’ Laxmii has no business calling itself a horror-comedy. Neither is it funny, nor it is scary.
