Oye Lucky Lucky Oye : Movie Review
A thief was never so lovable before in Bollywood as it is in director Dibakar Banerjee’s immensely entertaining film about a kleptomaniac who steals not just for greed, but for fame as well.
Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye! , the title itself gives us a peek into a lower middle-class Punjabi family in Delhi. Lucky, the second son of a foreign-returned authoritarian baap (Paresh Rawal), is a boy who looks longingly at the world of the rich. Without the slightest pang of conscience he begins to nick petty things and grows to be a cool-headed thief who steals everything from TVs, cars, jewellery to cutlery, clothes, furniture, and even dogs. Nothing escapes the dexterous hands of Lucky ( Abhay Deol ).
