Directors Siddique and Lal have joined after almost two decades and have given King Liar, starring " Dileep" and "Madonna Sebastian" (of Premam fame). Let’s see what King Liar has in store for us.


Dileep is a small-time con man. However, he is good in nature. He is smitten by Madonna Sebastian, who is working as a fashion designer. He does his best to gain her attention; he lies to her that he is an affluent businessman. However, Madonna gets to know the truth sooner and plans to walk away from Dileep’s life. Dileep, whose love is still going strong for Madonna, tries his best to get her love.

There is also the story of a fashion magnate who strikes a deal with Dileep. Watch the movie to know the rest of the proceedings.

Star Performances

Dileep is always known for his comic timing and in this film too he excels in it. However, sometimes we feel that he goes over the top in his performance. Madonna Sebastian, who is gaining accolades for her recent Tamil flick Kadhalum Kadanthu Pogum, has done quite a good job. Balu Varghese’s performance is commendable while Asha Sarath, Lal, Siddique, Shivaji Guruvayoor, etc., ably support.


This directorial venture of the duo Siddique-Lal, who had earlier given good comedy films like In Harihar Nagar and Ramji Rao Speaking, is entertaining only in bits and pieces.

What’s there?

  • While some jokes work, some are just passable. 
  • The first half is good with a right dosage of humor and romance. 
  • The cinematography of Alby is excellent. 
  • Deepak Dev’s BGM gels well with the tempo of the movie. 

What’s not there?

  • The make-up of the actors could have been concentrated more. 
  • The music of Alex Paul could have been better.


The movie can be watched once for its average execution.
