Prithviraj’s directorial debut Lucifer is an out and out Lalettan show. This should come as no surprise as Prithviraj is a self confessed Lalettan fan. This movie marks the first collaboration of these two talented artists of the Malayalam movie industry. Scripted by Murali Gopy, the movie has a great star cast which includes Manju Warrier, Indrajith, Tovino Thomas, Vivek Oberoi, Kalabhavan Shajon and Sai Kumar.
The movie is a treat for Mohanlal fans. The star rocks as the protagonist Stephen Nedumpally. His look in the film and his impressive oneliners are perfect. No heavy, long dialogues here. Brevity is the key and its impact on the audience is remarkable.
This political drama proves that Prithviraj is a talented director. Mohanlal praised Prithvi saying he was a director with a vision and that he was happy with the final outcome of the film. That’s high praise coming as it does from the Superstar on a directorial debut.
The film opens with the death of the chief minister of Kerala, PK Ramdas. Manju Warrier as Priyadarshini and Tovino Thomas as Jathin play their roles well. Who will inherit the legacy of the minister is the plot of the film as there are many contenders including Stephen Nedumpally.
The background music plays a huge role in the film. The director has used Deepak Dev’s music to good effect. The cinematography by Sujith Vaasudevan provides a visual treat.
Altogether an absorbing watch, Mohanlal should click here with the mass as he has displayed class!
