  • Story
  • Ages Old Screenplay
  • Zero Comedy
Bottom Line: An ages old popcorn entertainer


The story is a mishmash of Hindu-Muslim family tale in which Lucman Ali Fukri alias Lucky (Jayasurya), an orphan, tries to reunite rich Usman Ali Fakri (Siddique) and his son Ramzan Ali (Lal), who married a Brahmin girl against his wish. Lucky enters the Fukri family in the guise of Ramzan Ali's son and he is there with the blessings of Ramzan Ali's real daughter Alia (Anu Sithara). Lucky develops a crush on Nafziya (Prayaga Martin) from the Fukri family and he faces obstacles to win her love. Can you guess what happens next?  Watch the movie this weekend.

Star Performance

Jayasurya, Prayaga and Anu Sithara have acted excellently and their performances will touch lives of many people who are in the same situation. This is the first time you come across a Siddique film without a single genuine humour. Besides, it reminds you of different shades of farce. Meanwhile after watching "Fukri", hardcore fans of Siddique's films would be impelled to embrace the saying "Form is temporary, Class is permanent.

Techinical Team

With better writing and direction, Fukri would have become an entertaining old school Malayalam comedy. The dated style of humour is beyond modern comprehension as the audience have grown wiser by the day. The cinematography work was made superbly and the editing is bit lengthy and bores the audience in some scenes.


The movie is full of twists and turns and will fool the audience to a greater extent. immaculately underlines the dearth of innovative ideas in the director's creative stable. The rehash of tales of impersonation that have appeared in myriad films does not support Fukri as the whole action is far-fetched and not convincing. The story is really a nonsense and full of stupidity.
