SpotboyE.com gives Raghava Lawrence directorial venture, Laxmii 2 stars. The film is said to be abominably loud, largely shrieky and over-the-top with plenty of physical comedy. A part of the review read, "Even when dressed in a saree this is a one-man show. And no bumper prizes for guessing who that man is. Really, Akshay Kumar deserves a lot better than this mangled mess of mirth and horror signifying nothing except a complete bankruptcy of imagination."
Laxmii is an official remake of Kanchana which was originally played by Raghavan Lawrence who is the director of the Hindi version. ALSO READ: Laxmii Social Media Review: Akshay Kumar-Kiara Advani Starrer Gets A Mixed Response From Netizens; Read Two Extreme Views
