The latest flick which released on 24th July is Luck *ing Mithun Chakraborty, Sanjay Dutt, Danny Denzongpa, Imran Khan, Chitrashi Rawat, Ravi Kisaan and Introducing Shruti Hassan.

Although people didn’t like Kaal, I loved it. It was something new. You must be thinking why is Kaal being talked about when the review is about Luck.

Well.... the director of both these films is Soham Shah. Kaal was released in 2005 and Luck in 2009. So, the expectations were quite high from him. The music has not been on a higher side.

So, overall the expectations from the film were not quite high but I expected it to be a good watch. Coming to the story, it was a great concept of Betting with real characters. The first half was scripted very tightly. But, what happened in the second half?

The whole film drained in the second half, the script was the real culprit. The suspense factor was good but when you see such nicely scripted first half, you want something more, which the film fails to deliver.

Coming to the acting department- I loved Sanjay Dutt and all others were top notch. But, the star in the making Imran Khan again disappointed. I think he should work more on his expressions in action films or for the time being stick to comic or romantic roles. The new girl Shruti Hassan is damn beautiful. For people who don’t know, She is the daughter of National Award winners Kamal Hassan and Sarika. I think she had a limited role which was performed well and has a star written over her name. But, the real performer is Sanjay Dutt. He's in top form and now i am sure these roles suit him a lot.

Music is above average. Salim Suleman after successful albums like 8X10 Tasveer, Rab Ne Bana Di Johi and Fashion disappointed this time. Only one song was good and another two average.

Direction was good and that is what I am happy about but the pace could have been faster in the second half. We get to see excellent locations and stunts (another plus about the film). The director seems to have executed this multi starrer well.

Now, the final verdict is already out that Luck has a bad luck at BoxOffice. It has had a Weekend of 12 Crores in India (Source:, which is not upto the mark. Sorry Soham Shah, you have a bad luck this time too. I wouldn’t call Luck a very bad film but it wasn’t a good film too. It is an above average film which deserves a watch. Watch it for the great locations, stunts, Sanjay Dutt and other actors.


Acting: ***

Story/ Script: *

Music: **1/2

Direction: ***

P.S.- For people who liked Kaal, please don’t have any expectations or you may be disappointed because both these films are different.

Overall: ** 1/2 (Above Average)

My Box Office Verdict (Estimate): Below Average or Flop
