Every city has its own charm and character.If Mumbai has its own lingo, so do other Indian cities.Capturing this beautifully is director Dibakar Banerjee’s second film (after the well-reviewed Khosla Ka Ghosla) Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye!.The city here is Delhi, which Banerjee has presented as you have never seen before — a hotch potch of people drawn from all stratas of the society. We see homes located in different localities like Delhi 6, Karol Bagh, Lajppat Nagar, Rohini and the plush South Delhi pockets.
Cast: Abhay Deol, Paresh Rawal, Neetu Chandra
Inspired by the incredible true story of Lucky Singh, an extremely charismatic and fearless confidence man and thief who socialized with the rich, famous and influential of Delhi society and then proceeded to rob them blind. He was the bÃªte noire of the police and had stolen millions by the time he was caught. A modern day Robin Hood with a twist, he robbed both the rich and the poor without prejudice.
Nothing was too big nor was anything too insignificant to escape his attention. The film opens with his trial and charts his rise from the projects of crime ridden suburban Delhi to the very heart of the corridors of power. Along the way he makes lifelong friends, falls in love an manages to outwit the entire law and order machinery. “Oye Lucky. Lucky Oye” is a parable of an India in flux on the cusp of it’s economic revolution when traditional values battled with nouveau riche desires.
