Banglahant Desk: After overcoming thousands of obstacles, ‘Lakshmi’ starring Akshay Kumar and Kiara Advani was released on Monday, November 9. The film was released on OTT platform Disney Hotstar on the occasion of Diwali. But the insanity or anticipation that existed before the release of this film could not meet the whims of Akshay, like netizens and film experts.
After the death of Sushant Singh Rajput, everyone is aware of the outrage of a large section of Bollywood towards nepotism. Road 2, Gunjan Saxena: Dadhya Kargil Girl, Khali Pili, one picture after another of star children has fallen on deaf ears at the box office. Especially after the miserable condition of Alia Bhatt Road 2, no one has forgotten yet.
The makers of the film were careful in advance so that such a situation would not happen with this film of Akshay. The number of trailers, likes and dislikes of the song has not been made public on YouTube. But even after doing so much, nothing was gained.
We have seen horror comedies like bhulbhulaiya or stree which are 20 times better than Laxmii. Akshay Kumar has done a fair job. But the script is weak. After so many great comedy movies, why did Akshay go along with this shit? ?#LaxmiiReview pic.twitter.com/Pley1ZCIJA

‘Lakshmi’ got a total of 2.5 out of 10 on IMDb. Akshay's picture is being trolled on social media, a storm of criticism. Many people say that Akshay has given pictures of Vash comedy horror genre before. They have been superhits. But he agreed to Lakshmi's screenplay.
Lacks the impact of the original[[[[#Kanchana]… #AkshayKumar in terrific form, but weak screenwriting + forced comedy are downers… Gathers momentum in concluding portions… Expected so much more! #LaxmiiReview pic.twitter.com/nLv0NJ1Sxp

The trade analyst called the picture “disappointing”. Although Akshay Kumar's performance is good, the screenplay is very weak. Lakshmi is not even close to the southern film 'Kanchana'. Trying to force laughter is also noticeable. There was a lot more expectation from this picture of Akshay.
