As much as theatres would want it, Laxmii, Akshay Kumar's horror-comedy, will not release in Indian cinemas. It's only for streaming consumption on Disney+ Hostar here. But it did hit the theatres in New Zealand, Australia, Papua New Guinea and Fiji on November 9, the same day it played out on the OTT platform across the world. Now we have reports of how the movie fared at these locations overseas and from the look of it, these aren't bad numbers.

Laxmii didn't really get great reviews upon its release on Disney+Hotstar. The mundane storyline and unfunny gags made it almost unbearable to watch. The audience in India had only recently warmed up to the genre of horror-comedy and this definitely didn't measure up. If people found Kumar's representation of a transgender faulty, others rejected the concept outright.

Laxmii got abysmal IMDb ratings as well but it's not because people boycotted it. The movie actually earned a lot of flak for its presentation. Guess the fact that there is a new movie at the theatres, made many check it out at these overseas locations.
