Inspired by the incredible true story of Lucky Singh, an extremely charismatic and fearless confidence man and thief who socialized with the rich, famous and influential of Delhi society and then proceeded to rob them blind. He was the bête noire of the police and had stolen millions by the time he was caught. A modern day Robin Hood with a twist, he robbed both the rich and the poor without prejudice. Nothing was too big nor was anything too insignificant to escape his attention. The film opens with his trial and charts his rise from the projects of crime ridden suburban Delhi to the very heart of the corridors of power. Along the way he makes lifelong friends, falls in love an manages to outwit the entire law and order machinery. Written by Anonymous

Perhaps the Best Comedy of the Year. Brilliant in all sense.
16 December 2008 | by See all my reviews

First of all, i regret to have OLLO( Oye Lucky Lucky Oye!) downloaded from the internet. I was anticipating for it's release for a long time, and i feel sorry for not watching it at the theater. And Why am i feeling sorry? For the fact that you cannot make me laugh at your jokes like you do in Golmaal Returns, Malamaal Weekly, Phir Hera Pheri or the sick Partner,for which i spent an over 1000 bucks, and miss OLLO at theater which made me LMAO.

As a sensible movie-goer I always keep in mind whether the movie I am gonna watch is worth the money spending. And i bet you, OLLO wont let you down.

I was wondering why do certain intelligent movie-goers have to wait for the year end to have a movie like OLLO. Abhay Deol has again proved himself as a actor with a niche. As critics have put him, he's certainly a Deol with a Difference. And he carries off with the role superbly. Even his last comic role as a detective-to-be in Manorama Under Six Feet was very funny indeed with the dialogs constituting slang's of North India. However,many movie goers would rarely get the jokes in Mumbai, as I already have observed the same situation with the masterpiece Omkara, where people in the cinema hall were scoffing at dialogs.Having my roots around Delhi I enjoyed the characters portraying their roles with such perfection. The slang, the half cut (not censored) abuses, and not to mention the detailing that went into styling the characters given the backdrop of the movie.

Dibakar surely knows the Delhi Underbelly and we already can see with his two products viz KKG(Khosla Ka Ghosla) and OLLO, and he does it with panache which is true to its roots. As a Delhite, you can literally identify with the character as if you know him or you just feel like he's your next door neighbor. Now that is what i call sensible Cinema,and not like other slapstick silly jokes as observed in Golmaal Sequels or any other Malamaal Weekly. I mean if your script is that much sorts of a killer, you don't need to hire Akshay Kumar for deliverance. It comes out naturally.

And OLLO does it with a flair.
