All of us have completely different desires and goals in life however one widespread dream for many is to get rich. However the actuality of life is that regardless of slogging for years, most individuals are capable of barely survive financially in at this time’s world. Rajesh Krishnan’s comedian caper LOOTCASE makes use of this as a crux and spins a comic story out of it. So does LOOTCASE handle to tickle the humorous bone of the audiences? Or does it fail to entice? Let’s analyse.
LOOTCASE is the story of a typical man who will get wealthy in a single day. Nandan Kumar (Kunal Kemmu) resides in a chawl in Mumbai together with his spouse Lata (Rasika Dugal) and son Aayush (Aryan Prajapati). He works in a printing press and has a hand-to-mouth existence regardless of working laborious and being the following contender for the ‘Kirori Mal Worker of The 12 months’ in his workplace. In the meantime, MLA Patil (Gajraj Rao) has obtained a goon eradicated who’s related to the gangster, Bala Rathore (Vijay Raaz). Bala decides to take revenge. He finds out that Patil goes to ship a sum of Rs. 10 crore and a controversial file, which consists of particulars of his shady dealings, to his celebration head. Patil sends two of his males – Omar (Sumit Nijhawan) and Abdul (Shashi Ranjan) – to get the suitcase, full of cash and the file. Bala’s males Rajan (Nilesh Divekar) and Graduate (Aakash Dabade) intercept Patil’s males and a shootout begins amongst them. Bala’s males pay money for the bag however have to flee with out the moolah because the police winds up all of a sudden. However earlier than working away, they conceal the suitcase close to a public rest room neatly and resolve to return again in an hour’s time to retrieve. As luck would have it, Nandan occurs to make use of the bathroom minutes after the shootout is over at that very same place. He will get maintain of the suitcase and realizing that no one is close by, he takes it with him. He hides it in the home of his neighbour Ramlal (Ghanshyam Garg) who’s away for a fortnight. Nandan now begins to spend the cash progressively on his household. Lata will get a bit suspicious although. In the meantime, Patil is distraught when he learns concerning the lacking suitcase and he will get Inspector Kolte (Ranvir Shorey) to retrieve the bag for him. Kolte realizes that discovering the bag is subsequent to inconceivable. The CCTV on the shootout web site is non-functional. Additionally, Kolte believes that some native gangster has looted the suitcase. Nandan, in the meantime, hasn’t finished something to arouse the suspicion of the police and even the gangsters. What occurs subsequent types the remainder of the movie.
Kapil Sawant and Rajesh Krishnan’s story is nothing new and may remind of comparable movies on this area or style like DELHI BELLY , EK CHALIS KI LAST LOCAL , BLACKMAIL , PHIR HERA PHERI  and many others. However Kapil Sawant and Rajesh Krishnan’s screenplay is very efficient. There are tons of humorous moments within the movie which can increase a great deal of laughs. Additionally, these comedian scenes are usually not city or area of interest and have a pan India enchantment. A couple of developments nevertheless are unconvincing. Additionally, the killing of the character within the first scene and its repercussions might have been higher defined. The file performs an essential position within the movie and it doesn’t get its due within the movie. Fortunately, the plusses outweigh the minuses. Kapil Sawant’s dialogues are very witty and humorous. In reality, the sensible one-liners elevate affect significantly.
Rajesh Krishnan’s route is clean and uncomplicated. There are a number of tracks within the movie and all of them progress properly. There’s no jerk by way of sequence change. At just a few scenes, he falters however total, it’s an honest movie debut of this director who has earned fame within the internet collection and promoting area.
LOOTCASE takes some time to settle. The preliminary 15-20 minutes are spent in introducing numerous characters. As soon as Nandan will get maintain of the suitcase, the movie goes on a excessive. The scene the place he’s splurging for his household’s happiness is endearing. Nevertheless it’s the supporting characters that actually add to the humour tremendously. Whether or not it’s MLA Patil’s psychological tactic of getting work finished or Bala giving references of animal’s scientific names and even selling Nationwide Geographic to Kolte’s sarcasm and aggressive behaviour, most of those characters have distinctive traits that not solely hold the curiosity going however convey the home down. Within the second half nevertheless, the movie drops. The music ‘Pavitra Get together’ is pressured whereas Nandan trying to purchase a flat is foolish and needlessly provides to the size. Nandan preserving the moist foreign money notes on terrace for drying can be fairly unconvincing. However the curiosity is revived as soon as Kolte goes to the financial institution and will get some particulars concerning the bag thief. The climax is exasperating and it’s fascinating to see how the humour has been stored intact. The ultimate scenes increase lot of questions that are left unanswered however no complaints although.
Kunal Kemmu delivers a genuinely positive efficiency. His comedian timing is first-rate and he underplays his half very properly. Rasika Dugal is gorgeous and performs the position of the righteous housewife to the T. She is the emotional spine of the movie and therefore stands out from the remainder. Gajraj Rao is superb and the way in which he persuades others to get his work finished shall be cherished. Vijay Raaz does his deadpan humourous act but once more however this time, he’s outfitted with a novel character trait and that helps. Ranvir Shorey is the shock of the movie. He brings out the humour together with his aggression and sarcasm. At locations, it’s his scenes that work probably the most. Vijay Nikam (Nandan’s boss Vasant Goenka) doesn’t get to do a lot however shines within the pre-climax. Aryan Prajapati is entertaining. Sumit Nijhawan and Shashi Ranjan are okay and identical goes for Atul Todankar (PA Subhash). Nilesh Divekar and Aakash Dabade nevertheless have a superb display screen presence. Ghanshyam Garg, Digvijay (Jameel), Sachin Naik (auto driver Keshav Prajapati), Manuj Sharma (Faizu) and Preeti Sharma (Actual property salesperson) are respectable. Himanshu Sharma (Supermanav) is nothing nice however what’s disappointing is that such an fascinating character doesn’t get utilized correctly within the movie.
Music is nothing nice. ‘Laal Peti’ is soothing whereas ‘Pavitra Get together’ is wasted. ‘Muft Ka Chandan Chandan’ is performed ultimately credit. Sameer Uddin’s background rating has the depraved and quirky really feel.
Sanu John Varughese’s cinematography is suitable. The chawl scenes are particularly properly shot. One can really feel the characters struggling to outlive in a small area. Rateesh UK’s manufacturing design could be very genuine. The chawl and printing press look straight out of life and doubtless shot in actual areas. And the guide store is a beautiful set and properly considered. Divvya and Nidhhi Gambhir’s costumes are lifelike. Manohar Verma’s motion is a bit gory particularly ultimately. Anand Subaya’s enhancing is neat and apart from few scenes to start with of second half, nothing within the movie is undesirable or pressured.
On the entire, LOOTCASE is a extremely entertaining and humorous movie which works as a result of its excellent writing, clean route and efficient performances.
