      Default Lucifer ~ An Opinion

      I was a bit hyped up after seeing an onflow of positive reviews from all corners where Mohanlal fans were thanking Prithviraj for celebrating the star. Maybe thats the reason why the film (for me) didn't touch the 100% mark. Before getting into positives, I would like to point out what I didn't like or felt as a weak point,

      1) I felt the movie was not exactly an out n out Mohanlal movie as projected by both makers and fans. I honestly don't think this as a negative in a strong way but I felt the portions where Stephen

      didn't create any sort of impact. Like many, I was

      2) The storyline is pretty cliched and the major twist was predictable.

      3) I believe Manju Warrier's character was pretty weak and it was her performance that made the character look good onscreen.

      4) The climax shot didn't sync well if you consider the story factor. It looked like a style factor which I enjoyed as a fan.

      5) There was a case of confusion/ambiguity/unexplained points regarding the lead character. Maybe a second viewing would help!!

      But Positives...

      1) Before getting into Prithviraj, I should applaud Murali Gopy. He is a writer of mettle and the manner he came up with scenes which could have failed ingloriously onscreen due to its cliched factor were saved or looked good/great cause of brilliance in writing and dialogues. Take Priya's scene

      . An Udaykrishna will sho you how to make it look cliched and filmy (Madhuraraja is coming ). I see many complaining that Murali Gopy should have come up with better storyline. I felt like they are expecting Adoor to make a Pulimurugan . And you all know what happened to his movies @ box office when he experimented!! The way he used a Narasimham reference in today's political scenario is a touch of class.


      2) Prithviraj is a better director than actor. Eventhough he doesn't have the Shaji Kailas punch of 90s, one thing I saw common in both these makers are their ability to engage the audience and presenting the lead actor with panache onscreen. I felt like Prithvi was an amalgamation of I V Sasi & Shaji Kailas where he has ability to bring big names to portray characters and crowd shots with a Shaji style. I am not claiming that he was imitating him but it reminded me of Shaji movies of 90s. And I feel Prithviraj is the new Shaji Kailas of this era...or simple Prithviraj. His pacing and the way he engaged the audience without giving them much to think and surprising them at times. Despite the weakness of a wafer thin plot, Prithvi overcame with some mass moments and grand visuals added with a racy narration.

      3) The Principal Cast was simply outstanding. The highlight is easily Vivek Oberoi who delivered a tremendous performance despite the language barrier. Even when he delivers the lines slowly, an genuine dedicated effort is seen which became fruitful. Vineeth as dubbing choice was a masterstroke. Infact Vivek was carrying a large portion of the movie during the first half. I felt Tovino had brilliant scenes despite of bring a cameo. Manju Warrier helped the movie a lot by her brilliance. No wonder she is tagged as the Best Actress since 96!!! Baiju is another actor who remained in our minds. Even I felt good to see Saikumar getting a meaty role after a long time. Rest all comprising of Indrajith, Shajon, Fazil, Sachin Khedekar did a great job. I felt the cameo appearance of Prithviraj was a bit overused. I felt like a fan trying to capture maximum moments with his idol. Finally...the lead actor....What should I say?....Whoever stood in front of him, the eyes were on him. He looked stylish, confident and did a terrific job. The original Lalism was seen throughout! except the romantic comedy side!!! Also special thanks to the human for allowing other actors to shine in a movie projected as an ultimate mass Mohanlal movie. You wil not see that in any other state.

      4) The technical side was simply outstanding...especially the original score and cinematography by Sujith Vassudev. The blast scenes easily matched the Hollywood Movies. The grand production values was clearly seen and strengthened the movie throughout. The editing of Samjith suited the mood of a commercial entertainer.


      I should congratulate Prithviraj Sukumaran for making a sparkling debut as a director and deliver a movie which promised the hype (which is a rare case). I believe Prithvi did the exact opposite of what Sreekumar Menon did. He didn't make any false claims and never allowed the movie to possess excessive hype. The movie is marketed as a Mohanlal Commercial Entertainer with No Experiments from Murali Gopi. This is exactly what the movie delivered!!! Even I agree the movie has earned the excessive hype post release due to the tremendous fans opinions....But one thing is a guarantee...You will not be disappointed and its easily a watchable movie for its sheer entertainment quotient with a touch of class!!!

      Ratings - 8/10


      There was no intentionally funny moments in the movie....But one man ensured to bring another trademark unintentional comedy just by his presence!!! No prizes for guessing who!!
