Oye Lucky - Unlucky Oye

Oye Lucky - Lucky Oye

Rating: 4.5/10

A brilliant start goes down the drain.
The movie opens up with Lucky, a versatile thief in jail. His booty being giving back to their rightful owners. Then it goes into flashback. The young lucky who is a serd has acted brilliantly probably better than the older one, Abhay Deol.
The movie grips you for almost the first 30-40 mins only after which u start losing interest. Lucky goes on stealing from one city to another and it really becomes boring. The end is a bit relieving but by the time the end comes, the movie loses its sheen completely.

The story is not unique. The treatment is quite similar to 'Khosla Ka Ghosla', Dibakar Banerjee's first film. But Dipakar fails to re-create the magic he did in 'Khosla Ka Ghosla'. Probably he got lost somewhere in the script.

Of the cast, Paresh Rawal shines as usual. Manjot Singh who plays young lucky is simply brilliant. Infact Abhay Deol fails to carry on his aggressive nature as the grown up lucky.

The film is completely undone by the hay-wire script. It simply fails to generate interest.
Abhay Deol has a knack of doing such off-beat films..but somehow you feel that his acting is more or less the same in these type of movies. He should re-invent himself.

Wait for the DVD or the satellite premiere of the movie.

totally agree...
actually I got almost frustrated by the end that once it is established that lucky is a smart,savvy, thief with a golden heart...what next...
why should we watch the movie if nothing else is planned to unfold...
