Mohanlal plays Lucky Singh in Monster
Here is the review by Indian Express. In Monster, Mohanlal plays Lucky Singh. He is a turban-wearing Sikh, who speaks fluent Malayalam. As he helps Bhamini (Honey Rose) change a flat tire, he recounts the story behind his look. He tells her that his life was marked by a series of misfortunes when he was in Kerala and he found his redemption at the Golden Temple in Amritsar, Punjab. The day he embraced Sikhism, his fortunes changed and he developed a Midas touch, he claims. Thus, he became Lucky Singh.
Mohanlal’s upcoming Diwali movie MONSTER will be banned in UAE due to LGBTQA+ references as the censor board is not happy.
It has received a fairly positive response from his fans. Most netizens have praised the performances and the effective second half. They have also lauded the makers for not being over the top. Some, however, felt that it was a bit on the slower side.
