Mohanlal's much anticipated movie Mr Fraud, directed by B Unnikrishnan, after facing a lot of hurdled finally hit the theaters last Saturday (May 17). But, the movie did not turn well as expected instead, it has turned out to be a fried one in all sense.

Mr Fraud is a story of a man with many faces. Mohanlal who plays the lead role in the film does not have a name but, has different faces. He is a hitech robber without a name but, with many faces, a con man who is on his mission to loot a royal family, which has billions of assets. But, the contradcitory factor is that the family members are at odds when they wanted to divide the wealth. Only Rajasekhara Varma (Siddique) and his daughetr Saraswathi (Mia) have kept themselves away from this dispute. An ex-MLA and communist Varma wants the full wealth on his own.

Performances
The main highlisht of the film is none other than Mohanlal himself. He has done variety of roles in a single film right from a rap singer to an ordinary man. He just rocks. He looks cool and impressive in his salt and pepper look. Siddique too has given a decent performance. Mia looks good and has performed neatly. Dev Gill as the villain is just ok. The rest of the cast like Vijay Babu, Vijayakumar, Saikumar, P Balachandran, Pallavi Chandran and others have given a decent performance.

Technical Aspects
Cinematography by Satheesh Kurup is impressive and catchy at times. Songs are good but, felt it was an intrudence inside the film. BGM by Gopi Sunder was good at places while, it took away the mood at places. B Unnikrishnan, as the director of the film , has tried to use the best of Mohanlal and has succeeded in it but, it did not reach the expected level like the previous outings.

Verdict
If you are a Mohanlal fan too, you might feel that the movie could have been better. It is more like a half baked movie with some flaws here and there. Do not expect much from this Mr Fraud.
