“Although Srikanth and Meghana have played their part well, Lucky is eventually a tacky rip-off of What Women Want (2000). The characters are poorly constructed and the jokes get irksome by the end. Skip it.”
What does every man wishes for and then rues - to read a woman's mind.
So our hero Lucky (Srikant) is a cranky young man who believes that women are a necessary evil and to be tolerated.
(Note: They are the reason why he is cranky to begin with)
Then the unexpected 'gift' of reading a woman's mind falls into his lap. Only he does not think of it as gift, more of a massive nuisance since his world is now a noisy clutter of chatter, complaints, curses, wishes....
Does he eventually enjoy the 'gift'? Resent it ? Exploit it? Does it change him - for better or for worse ? Will he use the skill to do something heroic ?
The movie may not be great on aesthetics but the story is thankfully a little different from the run-of-the-mill movies we see nowadays where there is an insane obsession to introduce the hero in the first 15 minutes top naked and definitely surrounded by a bevy of comparatively even more underdressed, firang babes. No such 'happy' surprises here. Things are a bit real - middle class family, grind of a mindless job, ill-tempered boss etc.
Director Hari should have paced the movie a little better. The first half of the movie has too much of the crankiness and then the movie picks up an unrealistic pace. Thankfully not too many songs - phew!
(Note once again(!) : There is a bit of the mandatory dishum-dishum)
Brahmanandam's scenes are not really wove into the movie - they stand independent of the story.
Rough edges and not a high profile cast but for the sake of the effort put into presenting a story that is 'a little' different, lets hope it runs.
