Lucifer: Twitter Hails Mohanlal Film as Blockbuster With Both Mass and Class
Actor Prithviraj Sukumaran turns director with the Malayalam movie Lucifer, which opened to positive response today.
One of the most awaited Malayalam films of the year, Mohanlal-starrer political thriller Lucifer hit the theatres today. The film is popular actor Prithviraj Sukumaran's debut project as a director. Lucifer also features Vivek Oberoi, Indrajith Sukumaran, Tovino Thomas, Manju Warrier and Kalabhavan Shajohn.
Produced by Antony Perumbavoor and written by Murali Gopy of Left Right Left and Ee Adutha Kaalathu-fame, the film deals with the power struggles within the ruling political party in Kerala when the leader passes away and the mayhem that ensues. Despite being set against a political backdrop, Prithviraj is reluctant to call it a political film.
Lucifer opened to positive reactions on Thursday, with people taking to Twitter during the interval to call it a mass entertainer with class, and a blockbuster in the making.
