Cinematography by Pradeep Nair is praiseworthy as the camera
takes many angle and closeups. Dialogues could have been more
effective considering that it's a thriller with superstar Mohanlal
in the lead. Script by SN Swamy is good, but could have been more
hard hitting. Music by Tatheesh Vega is average. Another 'minus' in
Lokpal is that the film lacks humour and that adds to the
lack lustre of the movie. The climax is not enticing enough and
leaving you with a feeling that it could have been better.
Lokpal narrates the story of a man who fights against corruption in the society. Mohanlal (Nandagopal) runs Nadoos foodcourt, popular for its excellent cuisine. However, apart from running a foodcourt, Nandu runs a secret tirade against smugglers and tax evaders. The different ways that he adopts to fight the smugglers form the highlight of the film.
Mohanlal is undoubtedly the 'star of the show' and steals the cake. He performs his role with utmost ease and conviction. Kavya Madhavan is pretty as usual and fits her role brilliantly. Manoj K Jayan sleepwalks through the movie. Saikumar and Shami Thilakan have done a commendable role. Meera Nandan has nothing substantial to do in the movie.
Lokpal is worth a one-time watch - and that too only because of Mohanlal.
