      Default LucifeR - My opinion

      PVR, 9 am


      “Kerala rashtreeyathile bheeshmacharyar enna ariyapedunna”, oru cinemayude thudakathil munp ingane thudangunna oru sambhashanam ketitullath ekadesham 19 kollam munpirangiya oru Mohanlal chithrathilanu. Lucifer thudangunathum ekadesham ithe sahacharyathilanu. Mohanlal enna superstarude mass ennu visheshipikavunna pazhaya chithrangalude X-factors ennu nammuk thonunna elements kooti yojipichkondulla oru script aanu Murali Gopyudeth. Narasimhathile rasthreeya muthaledup, sphadikathilem aram thamburanilem pole naad vittu poyi thirichethunna nayakan, Rajavinte makanile nayakano villaino ennu thonipikunna kadhapathram.
      Paranju vannath, Murali Gopyude kadha paschathalam mass cinemakalk ennum menpodi aayitulla oru template aanu. But e kadha Prithviraj Sukumaran enna craftsmante kayyil kittiyapol athil Malayala cinemak parichitham allatha ennal budgetwise nammuk munnil nilkunna anya basha chithrangalil kanditulla oru successful recipe undakki edukan adehathinu kazhinju ennu nisamshayam parayam. Cinemayude craft manasilakiya director ennu vilichath mattonnumkondalla, anamorphic enna format nammal kanditullath Hollywood padangalil aanu. Ithe formatl ulla oru malayala cinema munp vannitundo ennariyilla, ennal Luciferil it took the visuals to a different level. Drone camera polathe gadgets anavashyamayi pala cinemakalilum use cheyth kanditund for a gimmick, but Prithvi uses it effectively during the scenes with the crowd which took the scale of the film to a different level. The sound mixing and back ground score is so skillfully blend which creates a different audio visual experience altogether.

      What works for me in Lucifer is the way the so-called “mass” scenes are blend with the narrative. The way the film is mount is extremely eye candy which really brings out the grandeur. Ennirunalum randam pakuthiyil varunna chila characters muzhuvan aayit establish cheythilla ennenik thoni. Ath kond thane chila scenes muzhach ninnu even though it looked appealing. 2nd halfle emotional connect kaivittu ennu thoniyidath nalla reethiyil flash back scenes use cheyth cover cheythitund Prithvi. Credits also to Lalettan, Manju and Vivek, its their performance which holds the film during those portions.

      Prithvi paranja pole Lalettane present cheythirikunathanu e padathinte etavum valiya plus point. Oru gradual build up und e characternu till it reaches the crescendo in the climax. Nammale ennum haram kollichitulla theekshanamaya chila nottangal, oru constant under current enna pole Stephen Nedumpally aaru ennu chodikavunna chila mannerisms and stares. Prithviraj has managed to tap into his super stardom and has come up with a terrific character.
      Among other actors, all were impressive but again the veterans scored big, Saikumar, Baiju, Manju Warrier were terrific. Vivek Oberoi is extremely effective(credit also to Vineeth’s dubbing).

      The technical side as expected were top notch with Sujith Vassudev’s shot selection, he effectively captures minute expressions of the actors. Editing was in sync with the overall pace of the film and I guess it must have been tough for him to chop-off scenes as I could feel that there were moments which needed to sink in, yet for the overall pacing what he did seems to work (eventhough I felt the last song was a bit too long).

      Overall, oru eye candy “mass” enna reethiyil kaanavunathum, ennal nalla engaging aayi nammale pidichiruthunna kadha parachilum ulla oru mikacha entertainer thanne aanu Lucifer.
