The movie is a treat for all Mohanlal's fans. Lucifer is an out and out Lalettan show. The director has made the movie in such a way that it will target and impress all who loves Mohanlal. The superstar delivers a tremendous performance as Stephen Nedumbally, his just a look or share will make you go crazy.

On the other hand, Vivek gets to play a well-written role, and it is one of the most excellent acts by any other Bollywood actor in Malayalam. Saniya Iyyappan as a drug-addicted girl too played her role with perfection. Tovino Thomas surprises everyone, especially in one of those crux scenes, which is one of the best parts of the film.
Prithviraj Sukumaran's directorial genius:
The movie is undoubtedly Prithviraj's movie as it proves that he is a fantastic director. Even Mohanlal praised Prithviraj for his vision and said that he was thrilled by the final product that he has brought onscreen, a huge compliment for any first time director. According to the Twitter reviews, audiences are all praise for this political drama and are lauding Prithviraj for playing his cards well with Mohanlal in the central role.
After watching the trailer, the story of Lucifer was clear. The film begins with the death of PK Ramdas (Sachin Khedekar), the chief minister of Kerala. Entire Kerala loves PK Ramdas, who has a heart of gold, and he is survived by his two children, Priyadarshini (Manju Warrier) and Jathin (Tovino Thomas). After his death, a fight ensues over his successor and there are a good number of contenders along with Stephen Nedumbally (Mohanlal), who is also a prominent leader. Now, the movie is all about the rest of the proceedings. Interesting right?
Murali Gopy, who has penned down the script was also seen in the movie playing a prominent role. In an interview, he said, that this script has the maximum mass elements among all his works. However, according to the audiences' review, the storyline isn't extraordinary or out of the box, same filmy drama but Lucifer's screenplay has those some moments that are necessary for a mass entertainer.
The background music has a humongous role to play, and Prithviraj said that Lucifer's music director Deepak Dev has left no stone unturned to elevate the narrative to another level absolutely. In a recent interview, the director and Mohanlal lauded the music of the movie with Prithviraj especially explaining how satisfied he was with the effort Deepak and his team put in.
The breathtaking frames of cinematographer Sujith Vaasudev have brought back the old filmy tone to Lucifer. The film was shot in the anamorphic format. It means the audience will experience a broader canvas and also a visual treat from the movie.
Besides Kerala, Lucifer has released in other centres across the globe as well.
