Laxmii Review: Akshay Kumar's Laxmii Fails to Entertain | The Quint

रोजी प्रकाशित केले 10 नोव्हेंबर, 2020
Even judging by the Bollywood standard of “brainless comedies”
Laxmii falls short miserably. Neither funny nor inspiring and a horror in the most literal sense, it makes mockery of the very things it claims to be celebrating. A hero with a scientific temperament comfortable with his misogyny and a film where transgender characters have to carry the burden of nauseating stereotypes. Give us a break Bollywood, the year isn’t over but it’s safe to say that Laxmii is the worst film of 2020.

  • Thank you for saving 😊

  • Boycott dirty Bollywood

  • Ppl r boycotted movie for over & loud acting, cheap punches, anti hindu tadaka & love jihad masala.. Dur se hi namaskar...

  • Kanchana original , was made as per viewers of that decade, moreover the story was altered a lot in Laxmii(movie), including dailogues. In kanchana, lead actor was scared of ghost, here he think ghost is fake stuff. And mano yaa naa mano, every remade movie, losses it real impact.

  • The dislike button isn't working.

  • Corona se dangerous ye movie hai :)

  • She mentioned misogynistic multiple times, not once mentioned how shamelessly the movie showed Shanatan dharma in bad light. What more to expect from dallas like Quint :P

  • mujhe tou aapka face & bolne ka style bakwas laga

  • Movie review cum roast

  • It's completely Hinduphobhic !!!

  • Actually the tamil 'kanchana' film is very empowering ... I would suggest you to watch it after filtering out laxmi (frankly seeing the trailer I knew its going to bomb) from your system maybe after a month or two.. Because it plays on your emotions especially the character of sharad is played by an iconic actor with full jusice to that role... The main lead doesn't use the stereotypes to create funny scenes and therefore you myt enjoy it. The only thing is language barrier.. I can gv you an example of this you know how sairat is a classic movie and the remake was just not good.. Obviously laxmi is 100 times worse than that... Hope you consider this 😇

  • Bakwasssss movie....

  • Sadak 2, khali pilli, and laxmii, Bollywood is digging up it's own grave

  • U can b happy of watching ddlj even after 25 years nd u can't enjoy a different and message oriented movie... Looking at u is more scary than the movie... U r a waste candidate to give a review.. Irritating expressions. 🤮🤮🤮

  • "women Vice President" LOL .... WE HAD woman PM in 80s Stupid . come out of neocolonialism.

  • Give Soorarai Potru review.

  • Magian

  • Nice review

  • It's too worse to see a good tamil movie remaked into a cringeworthy disaster..

  • It's too worse to see a good tamil movie remaked into a cringeworthy disaster..

  • Original is better

  • Bacha liya

  • Watch Kanchana....it is awesome...but laxhmii to bakwas hain

  • Imagine if someone makes movie called "M0hamMad b00m"

  • Boycott bollywood movies 🤬🤬🤬 kabhi nhi dekhna inki movie 🤬🤬

  • Stuti this time u are wrong... Its a beautiful movie.... I loved it... And those who don't like it।u all need to think twice.... Breath taking performances.... Sharad and akshay, both mind blowing

  • Lovedddddd this 🤣🤣🤣👏

    • Movie or review???

  • Aap vi Bengali nikali .... oh shittttt

  • Boycott karo Drig mafia ko .. Gaddar o ko

  • I watched Laxmi and I recommend you to watch kanchana. Kanchana was far far better movie than dis. Kanchana has extremely good comedy scenes and Laxmi dont and kanchana is intense where Laxmi is not then Akshay falls so short compared to acting and cant match Lawrence intense acting. Nobody performed well. So watch kanchana, that's an entertaining movie not like laxmi, yes ofcourse laxmi was extremely bad and boring

  • Nobody Watched it

  • Agreed the movie was very bad.. But who is this woman.. so irritating.. the way she described about the original movie kanchana... which ws pretty entertaining..

  • Lol America having the first female VP 🤦🏼‍♂️ people should seriously research about her. Both her and Biden combined put more innocent black men in jail than anyone else that ran for the highest position in US. She is Hillary 2.0

  • Stop comparing with America you stupid people, India already had Woman PM way back in 1970s!

  • Korea - Parasite India - laxmi bomb😞😞😞

  • That's why it breaks the views record of dil Bechara

  • Is it worse than Sadak 2?

  • I believe typical bollywood films does not deserve to be reviewed.

  • Sharad Kelkar, and the girl who played the daughter of Sharad, and the fellow who raised them and his mentally challenged son are the best ones in this movie. Sharad stole the show. This movie would have been a total disaster without him.

  • Akshay Kumar has failed in this movie but hope the movie Suryavanshi will be great

  • Feeling pity for 🔥🌟

  • Did they remove the "Bomb" in the name knowing that the movie will anyways Bomb?

  • Tum logo ka to gand JAL raha hoga

  • People want to see such stupidity typo movie If they can watch news they can enjoy it

  • She became judgemental about Tamil movie. In reality the tamil movie had a clean cinematography! This is what happens when content mongers make content with zero knowledge and research.

  • Sound Improved.

  • america is going to have frst women vice president sorry in india we had a women president , nothing to celebrate about it women can do any job nobody need to specify that.

  • Just like the film the lady here also is boring

  • Lekin India ky logo ko yhi sb toh psand aaata hai, India ky liye India ky type ka content

  • Nly flashback sharad kelkar rocks as laxxmii and the climax

  • Oh these women, they take power too seriously, and about movies....they are not govt sponsored movies to pass a good message to the people of the country, or a utopian society documentary. This is purely comercial, Akshay ko hijra banake paisa milega kya? Kiara ko item number pe nacha ke paisa milega kya are the decisions they take.

    • Hey plz checkout my review of laxmii also Nd give ur suggestion 4 betterment 🙏

  • Disclaimer: Haven't seen the movie. BUT "Chudhiya" could also directly mean the shame/ shyness in changing your appearance to that of a woman...Instead of the weakness associated with a woman... Something similar for a woman can be letting the moustache hairs grow

    • Hey plz checkout my review of laxmii also Nd give ur suggestion 4 betterment 🙏

  • Bhut boring hai .

    • Hey plz checkout my review of laxmii also Nd give ur suggestion 4 betterment 🙏

  • I remember how I was really excited to see this movie with my sister a month ago. I legit thought it's based on a good social message (which undeniably acted as a fuel in my excitement) that akshay kumar generally serves us with ,like accepting trans in a funny, light, easy way that people can understand (ps: I had no clue it was based on kanchana =0 ) . But damn these reviews just killed my hopes that I'm even afraid to even waste my time on it. '-'

    • Reviews are from those people who are so fucked of in his entire life that their only work is to hate people for no reason.

    • Don't rely on these reviews... They are pretty much biased

    • Please go and watch... Beautiful movie with social message of togetherness of 2 religions.... PLZ watch and do let me know.. How u loved it... U have a Gr8 day

    • Hey plz checkout my review of laxmii also Nd give ur suggestion 4 betterment 🙏

  • Bollywood = criminals pile of garbage

    • Hey plz checkout my review of laxmii also Nd give ur suggestion 4 betterment

  • So true. The movie basically lacked everything. It failed to sync with all kinds of emotions at necessary places. Absolutely baseless & messed up performance.

    • Hey plz checkout my review of laxmii also Nd give ur suggestion 4 betterment

  • Okay, so film might be bad. But one male character saying "chudiya pehn lunga" is just a portrayal of the men who say something like that even today and it's not the mentality of the actor or the director. As long as the character pays for saying "that", gets punished in some way, it's just the way it should be.

    • Hey plz checkout my review of laxmii also Nd give ur suggestion 4 betterment

  • Kanchana hundred times better than laxmi

    • Hey plz checkout my review of laxmii also Nd give ur suggestion 4 betterment

  • Thanks For The Great Review...Bollywood Ruined Kanchana Movie..I watched both...One Of The Worst Remakes Ever Made...Worst Changes Ever Done To Original Script..Its Akshay, You Have To Change Script As Per Him...To Show Him Superior..Bhai Sab Ne Transgender Ka Role Karliya Bahot Badi Baat Hai..Original Kanchana Ki Script Pe Kaam Karenge To Unki Image Ka Kya Hoga..Chutiya Saala

    • Hey plz checkout my review of laxmii also Nd give ur suggestion 4 betterment

  • Akshay has a tendency to use some social topics to gain popularity and “tend” to become a good human being! I never watched his film, and never I am going to.! People say he’s a great actor, but I don’t think so!! He needs a lot of training. He goes completely off the Character he’s playing. This is really sad to see Bollywood, using, Topics like : Pulwama Attack, Gender Discriminations etc.

    • If you never watched his movie than how you know he need a lot of training.

  • Expected this review!!

  • Have to admit that the trailer was so uncharacteristically HONEST! It clearly stated how far one had to stay away from this one.

  • Jaise ki lack of convinction h aap mai jo aapne ek review already de diya phir waapis whi dene aa gyi... itne velle ho

  • 😅trailer had given idea already...

  • Tanishq ki analogy nahi use karni chahiye thi. Unhone khud nahi hatayi thi ad Public outcry ki wajah se hatani padi Wrong of you guys to say such things

  • I know this is silly but I think of they released it in 2016 then it would be massive hit but releasing it in the OTT platform where you get incredible films and shows you can't handle the remake

    • @shawn samson sorry by mistake

    • OTT

  • Will watch kanchana hope it'll be much better. Highly disappointed.

  • Best Bollywood movie of 2020 is most probably Bulbbul.

  • THANKS FOR THE REVIEW. :D
