Stephen is none other than Ramdas’ close aide. Did Bobby manage Stephen to get his position? Watch the film in theaters!

Star Performance

Mohanlal has performed naturally as usual. Right from his intro scene, till the climax, his fans could enjoy the film throughout. Vivek Oberoi has done his best in his debut Mollywood film. Manju did a great job, as usual. Saikumar, Tovino Thomas and Kalabhavan Shajon had also done justice to their roles. Indrajith’s performance also needs a special mention.

Analysis

Murali Gopy has scripted the film in his style. The characters are neatly written and the star selection is superb and they have done their best. The first half has a lot of stylish moments and it is definitely a treat to Mohanlal fans. The second half has some punch dialogues to impress the fans. Although there are strong punches, the second half looks a bit odd. The music and the cinematography are superb. Manju’s scenes are neatly designed. A couple of scenes showcase her ability to emote extraordinarily. Her combination scenes with Vivek Oberoi gets the appreciation.

What’s There?

  • The screenplay is quick and narration is interesting
  • Performances of the stars are extraordinary
  • Good Launchpad for Vivek Oberoi

What’s Not There?

  • Certain scenes in the second half give an odd feel

Verdict

With the usual political story, Prithviraj has excelled in his narration and has succeeded as a good director. Except for a very few errors, the film has nothing negative. Lucifer is a perfect film not only for Mohanlal but for Manju too. Lucifer is definitely a mass entertainer that satisfies all class audiences.
