Lucifer: the "L" is surely a Mass entertainer!

Thalai yum illa Thalaivan um illai.. Thalai edukkaravan da naan...

This was one of the many punch dialogues that the beloved Lalettan aka Mohanlal delivered on the silverscreen in his latest mass entertainer, Lucifer! The movie was quite engrossing, and it made me want to write a review - one after a very long time!

Lucifer is a new Malayalam movie directed by Prithviraj Sukumaran and produced by Antony Perumbavoor (under his banner, "Aashirvad Cinemas"). The movie is a political thriller, revolving around a power struggle over finding a successor, following the death of the state's chief minister.

The movie, which is Prithviraj Sukumaran's first directorial venture, is a stylish movie, and uses background score to enhance the effect of the way the story is told. The director has taken a lot of effort to ensure the continuity of scenes. The story by Murali Gopi has been turned into a marvelous entertainer by Prithviraj and his team.

Claps and whistles were high as Mohanlal delivered a few of his own classic dialogues, like this one from his 1987 blockbuster, Irupatham Noottandu - "Narcotics is a dirty business". 

Mohanlal looks convincing at Stephen Nedumbally, a cunning political leader with complete dedicating to his foster father PK Ramdas (played by Sachin Khedekar). Manju Warrier looks convincing as Priyadarshini Ramdas (PK Ramdas' Daughter). Vivek Oberoi (as Bobby) looks menacing as the villain - and has handled his role brilliantly. His lip sync'd quite well with his dialogue delivery.

Tovino Thomas (as Jathin Ramdas) played his role really well - even with very limited screenspace did a great job! Indrajith Sukumaran (as the nerdy Govardhan) looked very convincing and interesting.

I wouldn't want to disclose more about the story line of the movie - the movie has enough twists and interesting turns to keep you glued to the screen! Grab your tub of popcorn and head to the theatre. The movie is certainly a to-go to see the suave Mohanlal playing Stephen Nedumbally convincingly on the screen!

Go watch it!
