Movie Review – Lootcase
Movie Review by Rishi Kapoor
The latest Bollywood movie on Disney+Hotstar Movieplex is a fun ride. It’s true when you have no expectation then sometime the outcome surprises you and I guess that was the case with Lootcase. After a long time, I have seen a clean situational comedy and Ithe credit should be given to the debutant director Rajesh Krishnan and the dialogue writer of the film.
The story of a middle class man, Nandan (Kunal Khemu), who lives with his devout wife Lata (Rasika Dugal) and son Ayush, accidentally stumbles upon a suitcase full of money while returning from work one night. The money was supposed to be sent to a Minister from Corrupt MLA Patil (Gajraj Rao), who entrusted the job to Omar (Sumit Nijhawan). Omar is attacked by Bala Rathore’s (Vijay Raaz) men, who steals the money but abandons it while fleeing from the police. An enraged Patil engages Inspector Kolte (Ranvir Shorey) to recover the suitcase. What follows is a fun ride which one should not miss.
You might not be laughing hard while watching the film, but you will find yourself smiling throughout. Yes, the script had room for improvement and there were a few scenes where humour could have been induced, but all that can be overlooked because of the fantastic performances of the actors with brilliant dialogue delivery. The biggest USP of this film is the entire starcast, every character in this film is well-rounded and fleshed out. Kunal Khemu once again shows that he is truly an effortless actor, he has a Terrific comic timing!! Rasika Dugal is charming as always and she plays a great part with confidence. Ranvir Shorey, as Inspector Kolte, brings truckloads of entertainment to the film. Vijay Raaz as don Bala, who is obsessed with the (interesting) facts shown about animals on National Geographic, is superb and so is his arch-enemy, Omar (Sumit Nijhawan).Gajraj Rao, as the overly-sweet and cunning MLA Patil, is flawless. He just smiles and gets his work done (by others).
Well written Dialogues is the best part of this movie specially when Vijay Raaz is on screen . I even liked the line which was around a climax scene – TU kiska Aadmi hain , Omar ka ki Kolte ka and Khemu responded by saying Lata ka ( his wife ) 🤣. This movie is worth a try which has good moments of laughter.
