Lucky Star malayalam movie review
Lucky Star stays out of those 'heartless movies' released in the past with its uniqueness wrapped up in strawberry flavour. Visually the movie is truly an entertainer which can enthrall the family audience who could spare their time to get refreshed. The soul of 'Lucky Star' will be the script swathed with all essence of humour, emotions and thrills making it a clean entertainer. Deepu had proved his mettle as a director bringing life to his own script on to the screen. The novel treatment of the movie makes it stand ahead in terms of its deliverance and execution at the right moment.
Deepu Anthikkad, the writer-director is truly a man with perfection who has really sown seeds for his long run in the film industry. With its witty and funny dialogues, 'Lucky Star' is not too meant for the young (new generation movie viewers), but truly for the family audience who wish to enjoy a movie without closing their eyes and ears. Ratheesh Vega has again proved his skill with magical fingers giving a handful of melodious songs which soothe the ears.
Jayaram gave his best appearance in the movie which has wooed the audience making them to keep their hands close to give rounds of claps. Rachana Narayankutty was the right cast for the character who really had done a terrific job with her charming on screen performance. Days are less to count on, as new projects will soon be jumping in front of Rachana, the small screen heroine now queen on silver screen. Vijay Ulaganath, the Cinematographer, who wielded the camera, had given pure dedication for each shot which had a realist touch. Being an associate for various tamil movie including Sivaji, Vijay is brilliant in zooming his camera. The child artist is another attraction who delights the audience with his majestic performance. Mukesh, Pooja, T G Ravi, Mamukkoya gave sincere contribution with their characters. Deepu himself gave an entry in the movie playing a small cameo role.
Moving away for the worthless movies wrapped with unhealthy scenes and dialogues, being made to entertain the young generation, 'Lucky Star' would be special for the audience to keep their mind clean and fresh in and out the theatre. So 'Lucky Star' will be your cup of tea and a fantabulous visual treat for family audience. Another interesting cst is that 'Lucky Star' would get a bollywood version with Madhavan in lead.
