Lucky Man Movie Review
An enjoyable entertainer highlighted by Yogi Babu's solid performance.
Story & Narration
Technical Aspects & Music
Balaji Venugopal, who hails from the radio and comedy space, has turned towards directorial duties with his comic entertainer Lucky Man, featuring Yogi Babu. The film is an imperfect yet interesting take on luck, live, love and humanity.
The film opens right from what the title indicates, we are introduced to Murugan, an unlucky man who has nothing going right. However, tracks change when he wins a car in a lucky lottery, but he soon gets into an ego clash with a local cop (Veera). Lucky Man then moves into a quarter where the car is lost, and what happens from there forms the rest of the story.
The first half of the film moves at a good pace and has a lot of events to develop our interest, Yogi Babu has a great presence and his dialogue delivery keeps it going at many points. Supporting him well are Rachel and Veera, who have very good performances to put together.
The second half of Lucky Man does not gather as much as interest as the first, but the film does manage to put across is points well through the use of funny situations and good dialogues throughout.
Sean Roldan’s songs are big highlights for the film, and the technical team too has put their best foot forward.
Balaji Venugopal could have made the second half of Lucky Man tighter with more interesting face offs between the two characters in the middle, but the film is still a good watch for the entertainment and gyaan it provides. Lucky Man Movie Review by Siddarth Srinivas
