Finally, the wait is over. Lucifer has hit the theatres and fans are rushing to grab tickets. I am one among the few lucky people who had the opportunity to watch early morning fans show of Lucifer. It’s always a pleasurable experience to watch a Mohanlal-starrer movie amongst his die-hard fans. Every time the superstar appears on the screen, fans go wild and create a festival mood inside the theatre.

Lucifer has met all the high anticipations and expectations that surrounded it. Director Prithviraj has truly delivered a mass entertainer that Mohanlal fans have been long waiting for. Lucifer is a true blend of mass and class. Murali Gopy’s script has meticulous details for each character in the movie. Every noticeable character in the script had their own unique importance in the story unlike many other superstar movies of the same genre. For this, Murali Gopy deserves all the credit and applause.

Like the Lucifer team had said in many interviews, casting is impeccable and we feel like they are irreplaceable. Only an actor like Mohanlal, with his superstardom and extraordinary charisma, can pull off and deliver a character like Stephen Nedumpally convincingly on screen. Almost all the actors, including the young actress Saniya Iyyappan to the most experienced actor Saikumar, delivered their best for the movie. Every other cast, including Manju Warrier, Vivek Oberoi, Tovino Thomas, and so on were equally convincing.

Lucifer Is Coming To Rule | What To Expect And ‘Not’ To Expect

Prithviraj has yet again proved that he is a man of his words. He has depicted Mohanlal in a way how Mohanlal die-hard fans wanted to see him appear on the screen. Lucifer is a big movie, its not perfect in every sense, but its a perfect entertainer. There are mostly “class elements”, but the director didn’t forget to add a few “masala elements” like item songs and hardcore action sequences to spice up the things.

Movie critics can find many faults with the film. There is a bit share of cliche dialogues and scenes in the movie. Foreign actors had their own “conventional-Indian-movie-foreigner” stereotype role to play. They hold guns, looked foreign, sound foreign and perish. And most part of the film is predictable. And the grey shade of characters, which was mostly promoted throughout before the release, felt just a charade. The grey element of characters in the movie is just like any other mass masala movies. Also, personally, I felt the background music was a bit too much or unnecessary at certain points. There was a tiny portion in the background music which resembled the tune from KGF.

Prithviraj, as a director, has won the game. Of course, there is still much room for improvement. Lucifer is a linear entertainer. There is no experimental side to it. He did it with the help of the “best” in each department, whether it be cast, writer, camera, music or every other technician. So, we can’t give all the credit to Prithviraj. As he said in his interviews, like every movie, Lucifer is also teamwork. And we can’t expect him to be a master class director. But we can surely say that he is an above average director who has the potential to deliver world-class movies to Malayalam movie industry in future.
