Luck - Movie Review

Dive or duck, better dodge this ‘Luck’

Luck - Movie Review
A movie that not just borrows its concept but also shamelessly copies a few sequences from the acclaimed French-Georgian film ‘Tzameti’ (meaning 13), ‘Luck’ stretches the bizarre to its limit.

A new game is in town in director Soham Shah’s Luck. Testing one’s luck in a casino or a race course is passé. Too thanda. It’s time to put the very life on the line. The lucky one who dodges death gets millions of bucks. The one who doesn’t becomes history. That’s the game the mafia don Moussa ( Sanjay Dutt ) is selling to the world. “Its pure business,” says Moussa, who himself prides over his unfailing luck. He’s the man who blindfolded crosses railway tracks with speeding trains without getting as much as a scratch. And bullets just don’t end up in the right barrel when the gun is pointed at Moussa. Such is his luck. Now, he’s set to take the betting industry to a new high with a game where luck decides life or death.

The players in the game need money for one reason or the other. Ram (Imran Khan) needs to pay off the crores of debt his scandalous stock broker dad left him after committing suicide. Major (Mithun Chakraborty) needs lakhs for the medical treatment of his wife. Ayesha (a sedate Shruti Haasan) is in the game for mysterious reasons. And there are other players like Raghav (Ravi Kishan), a serial killer whose luck saved him from the gallows, and Shortcut (Chitrashi Rawat) who’s in to win money.

The remaining film is just a series of death-defying games which the players are made to play. In between, writer-director Soham Shah throws in some romance and some drama. But the film keeps dipping and touching new lows in the second half. The stunts, the action and the pyrotechnics are too thanda for the generation brought up on violent playstation games. The swimming-with-sharks sequence looks like a bad joke while the ridiculous climax on a speeding train fails to pump the adrenaline.
