Laxmii Movie Review: Akshay Kumar amazes in the role of 'transgender' in humourless horror-comedy

Akshay Kumar and Kiara Advani starring Laxmii, the remake of the South Indian horror comedy film Kanchana released on November 9 at the OTT platform Disney+ Hotstar.

Akshay Kumar and Kiara Advani are playing Asif and Priya in the film Laxmii which is the remake of the very popular South Indian horror-comedy Kanchana, directed by Raghava Lawrence which spoke about the stories of the transgender community and how the society reacts towards them. Though the director wanted to woo the audience with the Hindi remake, it didn't imprint much on the viewers as the original one did. Other than Akshay Kumar, Sharad Kelkar deserves a special mention here. The supporting actors like Rajesh Sharma, Ashwini Kalsekar, Ayesha Raza Mishra did a decent job too. It is suitable for a one time watch, and it deserves a 3-star rating.
