Ravenus, I finished it last night. It's a very good movie. I don't want to say too much about it, in case I spoil anything. But I'm glad I bought it, so I can revisit it.

Just got my Blu-ray and watched the movie. Definitely original for India standards and generally well made but a bit sloppy compared to other low-budget sci-fi flicks. The movie is certainly interesting but the writing needed to be a bit tighter. While the director may admit that he created something original, most Kannadians will probably not know that the movie has been influenced from Matrix, Inception, and Darren Aronofsky films. Lucia is no ripoff or remake of any Hollywood film though - it's just that the influences are there. But like any other good sci-fi film, they too have been influenced by other films so Lucia is certainly an entertaining watch and actually is the type of film to rewatch at least one more time to figure out some stuff - the rewatch factor has more to do with the screenplay/twists not being totally clear.

But for originality and for being a sci-fi indie film from India, definitely worth watching!

Best sci-fi/fantasy Indian flicks for me so far are:

1. Robo
2. Eega
3. Magadheera
4. Lucia
5. Once Upon a Warrior


The Blu-ray has excellent video/audio/English subtitles quality and comes with a bonus dvd of over 2+ hours of the making of the film (non-subtitled but sometimes they speak in English).

Movie: 3 for the rest of the world; 4.5 for a Kannada Indian film
Video: 4.5
Audio: 4.5
Extras: 4

I saw this film couple nights ago, and it's definitely one of a few Indian films out on blu-ray that's not braindead chauvinistic crap. The Lucia of the title is the name of a drug that allows its users to have coherent fantasies in their sleep they can build upon and manipulate to suit their desires. Not saying any more about it.

Like Toddly before said, there are strands of Inception and films like Pi. To the film's credit, it is genuinely interested in the concept and not just throwing it in as a gimmick into a regular masala flick. Also, while it employs novel-to-Indian-movies narrative and visual techniques, it avoids being overly arthouse and definitely wants to be accessible to a general audience. But in that attempt it goes a little too far with a plodding melodramatic romance angle that dilutes the story and slows the pace unnecessarily. With a more tight and ruthless screenplay this would have been terrific, but even as it stands it's a worthwhile one-time watch, and any day better than most films put out on blu-ray in this country.

I will echo Toddly's remarks on the transfer. Will check out the extras later - there are a ton of them including a director's commentary and a huge making of on a separate DVD.

Hey guys, after seeing this (and other Indian) review from Corrie who runs the YouTube channel Pieces of Work, I am eager to get a proper Blu-ray release of this movie with English subtitles and I was wondering if there is one released yet ?

The existing Indian blu-ray has English subtitles (although the included bonus DVD with BTS footage does not)
