Verdict: Decent family and comedy entertainer.
Luckunnodu starring Manchu Vishnu and Hansika Motwani in the lead roles is written and directed by Raaja Kiran. Produced under MVV Creations, let’s see how lucky this “Luckunnodu” is. This also marks the debut of producer M.V.V. Satyanarayana playing the main antagonist.
J.K. (M.V.V. Satyanarayana) is a ruthless businessman based in Mumbai. He arranges a meeting with his business friend Antony and they plan to steal money worth 25 crores. Anthony succeeds in his mission but cheats J.K and escapes with the money. Lucky (Manchu Vishnu) is a young man from a middle-class household, who plans to commit suicide. Just when he is about to commit suicide, a thief named Pulihora(Prabhas Sreenu) enters Lucky’s house to commit robbery. Lucky laughs at Pulihora as there is nothing in his house to steal. He then starts narrating his story to Pulihora on why he is about to commit suicide. Did J.K. nab Anthony? Why is Lucky so unlucky for his father? Are there any twists in the tale? To know all thiss and much more, watch “Luckunnodu” at a theater near you.
Manchu Vishnu as Lucky gave a matured performance and his comedy timing is excellent. Hansika Motwani as Lucky’s love interest shined in the role of Positive Padma. The chemistry between the lead pair is good. Dr. Mohan Babu played a cameo in the first song and is seen dancing with Vishnu. Prabhas Seenu as Pulihora did a wonderful job. Raghu Babu as Lucky’s uncle is hilarious and entertaining. Venella Kishore as C.E.O of Kony Solutions was able to make the audience laugh as well. Thanikella Bharani as Padma’s father Padmarao did justice to his role. Suresh and Posani were seen in the role of cops and are introduced in the second half of the movie. Rest of the cast is adequate. M.V.V. Satyanarayana as the lead antagonist could have done better.
Writer and director Raaja Kiran needs to be appreciated for churning a comedy family entertainer without any dull moments. Editing is crisp and the runtime is limited to less than two hours. Dialogues by Diamond Rathna Babu are a big asset to Luckunnodu. There are four songs in the movie with each of them being unique in their own way. Music and background score is good and cinematography is neat. All frames looked grand and production values are great.
Why You Should Watch This Movie:
You can watch this movie for its clean narration without any vulgar dialogues or nudity. It is a clean family entertainer that can be enjoyed by any age group. The crisp runtime is also a huge plus.
