Ratings : 1.5/5       Site – Firstpost

Laxmii’s shrillness overshadows its purported goal of representing trans persons on screen and ends up further otherising this ostracised community.

Irrespective of its aims, Laxmii serves to further otherise the already ostracised trans community. It is also tacky and insufferable.

Laxmii, unalloyed gobbledygook even by ghost story standards, is a film best left alone. Even if you are an Akshay Kumar fan, look before you leap.

A remake of Tamil film Kanchana also directed by Raghava Lawrence, Laxmii ends up doing more harm than good. Perhaps well-intentioned, Laxmii had the potential to make a difference but it’s an opportunity missed.

Ratings : 2/5       Site – TNN

‘Laxmii’ sets out to be a satire against age-old beliefs and biases – we get it! – but the insipidness of the narrative and whatever follows thereon, butchers the lessons it originally desires to impart.

Review by : Shubhra Gupta

Ratings : 1/5       Site – Indian Express

Claiming to break stereotypes by heavily stereotyping people across the board is a device bad Bollywood never seems to get enough of: all the transgender characters clap their hands, and dance around a fire; a good Muslim character wears a ‘topi’ and beard; and everyone else speaks their lines in the hope of making us laugh. No one succeeds, not even Akshay, who can be really good when he isn’t taking himself too seriously. The only one does take his role seriously is Kelkar (effective), as Laxmii-the-transgender, who is wronged.
