Short review: Oye Lucky Lucky Oye!

Oye Lucky Lucky Oye! is Dibakar bannerjee's second film after the brilliant Khosla ka Ghosla and he totally lives up to the expectations. It is the story of the eponymous 'Superchor' Lucky who can steal anything, even a dog! The film is witty and the one-liners had me in splits! The performances are brilliant by Abhay Deol, Paresh Rawal, Manjot Singh( the young Lucky, absolutely fantastic) and others including Archana Puran Singh, Bangali (don't know his real name). There is no story as such.However, the attention to details like houses in old Delhi, Karol Bagh,etc. is fantastic. The music is somewhat okayish. The film has its flaws but you do not bother as long as it entertains.The film could have been a superhit but suffered as it was released in the week Mumbai was attacked.

Rating ***
