A lackadaisical movie, which drags on for greater than two hours with out a lot occurring
A comedy of errors depending on an deserted bag full of money outdoors a public rest room in Mumbai. That’s in all probability essentially the most attention-grabbing facet of Lootcase, an completely pointless and lackadaisical movie, which drags on for greater than two hours with out a lot occurring. The movie begins off with a promising setup: an strange working-class man, Nandan Kumar (Kunal Khemu), discovers a bag deserted throughout a crossfire between two rival goons. Nandan has no thought what to do with the ginormous amount of money, and does all he can to cover it from his spouse, Lata (Rasika Dugal). However for the following couple of hours, the movie goes in circles and ceases to be humorous.
As soon as the movie has established the battle fairly early on, one would anticipate the narrative to maneuver on and introduce new situations that may lend to good comedy. However for nearly an hour, the movie showcases Nandan’s struggles —a few of that are fleetingly amusing — however largely irritating. Scenes are sometimes repeated and one needs Dugal had extra to contribute than be a simpleton of a spouse. As an alternative of being Khemu’s ethical aware, she comes throughout as a celebration pooper and he’s allowed to stroll away with all of the goofiness.

Past the 2 characters, there are gangsters like Bala Rathore (Vijay Raaz), who’s obsessive about Nationwide Geographic and speaks in animal analogies. Gajraj Rao performs a neighborhood politician, Minister Patil, who will get work performed by being too candy. Ranvir Shorey as Inspector Kolte has a slight antagonistic shade, who carries out encounters at will and is managed by Patil. All these characters have a couple of one-liners that land nicely. However total, none of their character traits is memorable or progressive sufficient. Particularly with Raaz; we’ve seen him play a shade of a Mumbai gangster aplenty earlier than.
Initially shot for the massive display, the movie has now discovered a direct-to-digital launch. As per the unique imaginative and prescient, Lootcase additionally has a few songs, which can not bode nicely for an OTT watch, particularly contemplating the movie is so loosely edited. With so many different choices and the temptation of the distant, Lootcase ought to have been pruned and drastically shortened for a quick digital expertise. This model seems like lazy transplantation throughout mediums that’s utterly out of sync with the occasions.
