Lucifer is a 2019 Indian Malayalam-language movie directed by Prithviraj Sukumaran and composed by Murali Gopy. Produced by Antony Perumbavoor through the generation house Aashirvad Cinemas, the movie denotes Prithviraj's directorial introduction and highlights Mohanlal in the number one spot job as Stephen Nedumpally, close by a supporting cast including Prithviraj Sukumaran, Vivek Oberoi, Manju Warrier, Tovino Thomas, Indrajith Sukumaran, Saniya Iyappan, Saikumar, Kalabhavan Shajohn, and Nyla Usha. Deepak Dev created the music for the film, and the cinematography was dealt with by Sujith Vaassudev.
Preferable to reign in damnation over serve in paradise, composed John Milton in Paradise Lost. A similar statement is played at last credits of on-screen character turned-movie producer Prithviraj's directorial debut Lucifer. As it were, it's fitting for a film that advances against the background of legislative issues and has taken a couple of references from contemporary socio-political situation.
Scripted by Murali Gopy, that much should be normal. Nonetheless, for most parts, the motion picture is a monstrous move from past Murali Gopy films with elevated ideas or thoughts, with chief Prithviraj putting money on some attempted and-tried equation to introduce a clear film that has both style and substance.
The film commences with the demise of Chief Minister PK Ramdas (Sachin Khedekar), uncovering his ideological group's monstrous side as they hurry for a successor. Touching base as though to help them is Ramdas' plotting child in-law Bobby with an idea to give reserves. His thought is to wrest control by introducing his manikins as he pushes Z classification drugs into the nation. Remaining in his manner, be that as it may, Stephen Nedumpally (Mohanlal) - the confided in associate of the late Ramdas. The motion picture pursues Bobby's plans to corrupt Stephen to remove him from the image, however he pushes too far to even think about revealing another side of Stephen.
What the movie's pair of scriptwriter and executive gets right are its characters. Every one of them carrying among great and malicious, feeble and solid, devoted and beguiling. This applies not only for its leads - Mohanlal, Vivek Oberoi and Manju Warrier - yet in addition the many supporting characters, for example, reality looking for internet based life crusader Govardhan played by Indrajith, the political scion Jatin Das by Tovino Thomas and furthermore Stephen's friend Aloshy, attempted by Kalabhavan Shajon.
Credit to Prithviraj for not playing to the exhibition in the primary half. The aftereffect of the limitation is that substance and characters get their due. Mohanlal's Stephen Nedumpally gets a couple of tasteful mass minutes in the principal half, with references to his days of old hits, for example, Narasimham, Irupathaam Noottaandu, Pulimurugan and Ravanaprabhu. Notwithstanding, the chief doesn't keep down in the second half and makes it a festival for Mohanlal fans - with the last half being punctuated by punch discoursed and projectiles. What's more, that is additionally where the film endures, making it somewhat dreary.
Mohanlal's Stephen however comes up short on the vitality of a portion of his mass symbols, and rather is a morose confronted unemotional figure - making it less significant for some in the wake of exiting, of the theaters. That is most likely where Vivek Oberoi scores in his Mollywood debut. With a job that has enough meat to play out, the Bollywood entertainer experts the job of the enemy and makes for a fitting reprobate set against Mohanlal.
Sai Kumar too is another champion entertainer as the astute Mahesha Varma. Manju Warrier has a crucial character yet by one way or another doesn't exactly her due. The scene where she chooses to light her dad's fire and where she stands up to Vivek Oberoi are the features. Indrajith and Tovino too have key characters and play their parts well to keep the story moving. Zayed Masood's help to Stephen however could help you to remember help that a specific Ali Imran got amid his salvage activity in Moonam Mura.
Deepak Dev's music could possibly be another character in the film, entering the brawl and elevating the rush component at spots. Be that as it may, abuse of the foundation score ends up jostling on occasion as well and detracts from the survey understanding. Sujit Vasudev's casings - particularly in the scenes set in Nedumpally and furthermore Stephen's nearby ups could be outwardly invigorating for fans.
Lucifer is a 'mass performer' that is certain to satisfy the fans and has enough going for to make it a drawing in spine chiller also. Furthermore, aside from the obligatory Stan Lee, amendment, Antony Perumbavoor appearance, keep an eye out for Stephen's second symbol in the film.
