Luck - Movie Review

Dive or duck, better dodge this ‘Luck’

(Above: A still from ‘Tzameti’ and ‘Luck’. Too similar to be coincidental, don’t you think?)


Imran still has a few rough edges to iron out in his acting even though he puts in a sincere performance. There’s a scene in the first half when he’s walking away from Danny Denzongpa. The walk is so pretentious that you instantly catch it. Shruti Haasan looks good but appears sedated for the most part of the film. She’s a good voice but her dialogue delivery has much scope for improvement.

Sanjay Dutt, the tapori rockstar in a mafia don’s pathani suit, delivers an expected performance, while Danny (playing his sidekick) has a magnetic screen presence. Mithun, Ravi Kishan and Chitrashi Rawat are strictly okay.

The film’s music doesn’t offer much to hum about. The dialogues are not just banal but dumb at times. One dialogue goes: “Jinhe chaand pe jaana ho, woh taaron par nahin ruktey”, when it should have been the other way round. The cinematography, full of speedy zoom-ins and crane shots, is not bad. The background score, too heavy.

The only thing to relish in this plagiarized thriller are a few hair-raising moments. The opening train sequence is pretty gripping. The ‘Tzameti’-copied shooting sequence could have been better.

But there’s no forgiving the loopholes. Guess what? Ravi Kishan who plays a serial killer gets acquitted and is honorably released from the prison just because the rope of the noose around his neck snapped at the gallows. Or take the climax when Ravi Kishan keeps shooting his machine gun at Imran who’s just a few metres from him, and not a single bullet finds Imran. These and more such sequences are a bummer for any viewer who had gone expecting an edge-of-the-seat experience.

There’s hardly any adrenaline rush to be had from this ‘Luck’. The action and stunts are too many, but poorly executed. And by the end, the film is such a marvelous mess that you feel like screaming “God! Iss Bungle Se Mujhe Bachao”, but only end up cursing your luck.

Rating: *1/2
