Movie Review: Lucky: No Time for Love

Genre: Romance

Plot Outline:

Schoolgirl Lucky (Sneha Ullal) and Indian Ambassador in Russia’s son Aditya (Salman Khan) meet by accident in what turns out to be one of the most risky days of their lives as they battle insurgency in finding their way back home to safety.


The Russian locales such as the buildings in St. Petersburg, the graveyard, the train and snow make the movie look like a fairy tale. The story is predictable and the twists get funny at times. When I first saw the promos with Sallu carrying a lifeless and expressionless Sneha and the sub-title “No time for love”, I thought that that the movie is love story with a terminally ill girl. Thankfully, this is not the story anyways.

Salman acts his age and looks decent. Newcomer and much publicized Ash-look-alike Sneha looks sweet but devoid of life. Hope Sneha’s next movie will put some life in her. Mithun Chakraborthy is a sad bondage to the movie. Adnan Sami’s music is fresh and ‘Lucky Lips’ is a must for your mp3 player.

Rating: 2/5 – Watch out for newcomer Sneha and Adnan’s music.
