Rating: ★☆☆☆☆ 

Kannada movie ‘Lucky’ hits the screens today with oomph. Starring Ramya, Yashn and Sharan in the leading roles, the movie is the directorial venture of Dr. Soori. Produced by Radhika Kumaraswamy, the film’s music has been scored by Arjun Janya. The movie is not the product the viewer gets crazy for! It is an ordinary kind of cinema which is best to be avoided to save the time and money. Rather than watching ‘Lucky’ in theaters, one should enjoy playing some good DVD at home with lavish food to grab it.

With ordinary story, poor script and bad direction, the film is a weak fair, which is not appealing at all. The film does not have any kind of potential to raise the viewers’ spirits. The story is what everybody is familiar with. There is no novelty at all and above all the film lacks in all departments. A lifeless product, Lucky even does not attract on part of performances.

The film talks about the main protagonist who claims himself Lucky (Yash). He falls in love with Gowri (Ramya) who works in an advertisement company. He is madly in love with the girl. Lucky makes all efforts to get close to his love but all in vain. Thus his friend Anand alias 420 (Sharan) gives him a piece of advice to join in the advertisement company but he is not even permitted to step inside by the gate keeper of the firm due to his ordinary get up and dressing. 420 again advices him to work on his get up and dressing. He takes the help of barber and eye specialist. With new style mantra, Lucky now becomes Vikram who then joins the ad firm where his love Gowri works as an Advertisement Manager. He expresses his love to Gowri who turns down his advances saying she loves Lucky. Now how he proves that he is Lucky actually is what forms the rest of the story.

Dr. Soori lacks in the skills of execution. He cannot hold the attention of the viewer to the screens. The film goers are left yawning in theaters while the film goes on. The script is so simple and ordinary that it does not interest even for a moment. Lucky’s changing his style in a manner that the dog even cannot recognize him appears weird, as we all know that dog’s sense of smell is what makes him recognize his owner and the person he gets attached with. The girl’s being not able to identify the lad after the change of his style with grown zigzag beard and new hairdo …seems strange as well. The script lacks in many other points like this as well.

The cinematography is just about okay. Film’s editing is poor. Music by Arjun Janya is below average. As far as the performances of the stars are concerned, not a single star even tries to impress the cinegoers. Ramya looks gorgeous but does not enact well. Yash is just about average. Sharan is okay. Rest of the cast is pretty average.

Final Verdict:

On the whole, Lucky lacks in all departments of the movie. There is nothing good to rave big about.
