Does Mohanlal work as Lokpal?

Lokpal, which released on Jan 31, is Mohanlal’s first film for the year. The movie,directed by Joshiy, was eagerly awaited by Mohanlal fans, but the response so far has been less than enthusiastic.
Critics say the film in which Mohanlal plays a vigilante out to correct the various ills in society is clichéd and has shades of Anniyan. According to the story, Mohanlal’s character runs a restaurant by day and is an activist by night. Hence the comparison, possibly.
Lokpal has Kavya Madhavan opposite Mohanlal, besides Meera Nandan, Manoj K. Jayan, Thambi Ramaiah, Thalaivasal Vijay and Saikumar in the supporting cast.
The Joshiy-Mohanlal team had given last year’s big hit Run Baby Run. It’s a pity they haven’t been able to recreate that success with Lokpal
