Lucifer has been highly anticipated by the movie audience for Prithvi-Mohanlal combo and also marks the debut of Prithvi as director. The movie scripted by Murali Gopi is almost different from the way he usually, creates the storyline and its flow. The screenplay and the extremely talented film-maker Prithviraj comes in handy, which makes the film stand out.
The movie opens up with the death of Chief Minister PK Ramdas, and the party is in rush to find a successor and Bobby essayed by Vivek Oberoi plans to fund them by opening a backdoor for drugs business. Stephen Nedumbally played by Mohanlal is the only major barrier which is stopping Bobby from taking up the power and making the government members his puppets. Including the major cast of Mohanlal, Manju and Tovino Thomas, all have a positive-negative face which keeps on swapping and that builds the richness of the plot. The second part is actually a fan celebration part as Mohanlal rocks with action scenes, punch dialogues and turns it into a mass masala mood.
Vivek Oberoi fits as a perfect villain in this political action thriller and has scored very well even without too much of length on the screen. Indrajit, Sai Kumar and Tovino also plays the pivotal roles in the movie and also we have Prithviraj in a small yet impactful role.
Cameo roles of Antony Perumbavoor have always been part of some blockbuster Mohanlal movies and here we can see one of them. Stunning music and bgm by Deepak Dev is yet another USP of the movie and adding to that was the camera work of Sujith Vasudev with lovely shots and angles.
Lucifer is surely a treat for the fans and is a highly engaging thriller, which gives a gripping feel to the audience. Prithviraj can be proud of giving his best and stood by his words of giving an out and out mass entertainer as a hardcore Mohanlal fan.
