A complete entertainer...
30 July 2009 | by namashi_1See all my reviews

Soham Shah made his debut as a filmmaker way back in 2005, with the well-made Kaal... four years later, he's back this time around with a flick named 'LUCK'.

Lets this straight: When you watch a film like 'LUCK', don't expect coming out watching a milestone. Such films promise to entertain, that's it! Based on human betting and their LUCK, Shah impresses big time with his slick direction in 'LUCK'.

'LUCK' has its hiccups up, but come on which film doesn't. Logic is not the topic here, entertainment is. 'LUCK' succeeds in keeping the viewers interest alive in those 2 hours and some minutes. Despite a weak climax, 'LUCK' is highly an engaging watch. Slick direction, grind house production value, first-rate performances, excellent background score and cinematography make 'LUCK' indeed worth a watch.

Performances: Mithun Chakraborty is fantastic. His portions are among the high-points of the film. Sanjay Dutt is stylish as moussa. Imran Khan is alright, he doesn't really suit the action-oriented role. Danny is in form after a long time. Shurti Hassan makes a good debut, but she enters the scene only at the interval. She deserved more footage, keeping in mind this is her launch pad. Chitrashi Rawat is first-rate in a brief role. Ravi Kishan is superb, he plays the Grey character with remarkable ease.

All said n done, 'LUCK' is entertainment at its best. Leave your brains at home and go watch 'LUCK', your bound to love it. Thumbs Up!
