“Lootcase”, directed by Rajesh Krishnan, is constructed round a state of affairs that the majority of us have solely fantasized about – the hope of sometime chancing upon sudden wealth. The movie performs out longer than it ought to, however it’s principally intelligent, and it advantages from a crackling forged that comes collectively to raise even the saggy bits.

Nandan Kumar (Kunal Kemmu) is a blue-collar employee in a printing press, struggling to present his household a greater life. His spouse Lata (Rasika Duggal) means that he ought to complement his earnings by beginning a small enterprise from house. Amongst different complaints, she reminds him that he’s been promising to take them to Shimla for years. “Maine toh sweater bhi bunke rakha hai; aise hello pada hai,” she says. Their younger son understands that cash is tight, however a child desires what a child desires.

Whereas returning house after finishing an evening shift in the future, Nandan stumbles onto an deserted suitcase full of money. It doesn’t seem to belong to anybody, however it may very well be the answer to each drawback he’s ever had; a way to uplift his household from a lifetime of pinching pennies that they appear destined for. So away he goes, bag in tow, oblivious {that a} corrupt politician, some ruthless gangsters, and a trigger-happy cop are in scorching pursuit of it.

A lot of the humour in “Lootcase” comes from two components – the primary being Nandan’s incapability to discover a appropriate place to cover the bag. We’re speaking a couple of decrease middle-class fellow who lives cheek to jowl with neighbours in a ratty chawl. The place do you conceal ten crore rupees? The second supply of amusement is his incapability to spend a lot of the money. “Na chaar rupaay ka churan khareed sakta hoon, na chaar crore ka flat,” he laments, realizing the impracticality of hoarding two thousand rupee notes. There may be additionally the irony that his spouse is consistently complaining that they don’t manage to pay for, but he is aware of she’d by no means be okay with preserving what doesn’t belong to them.

The opposite characters too are quirky; the screenplay coasts alongside properly when Gajraj Rao exhibits up on the display screen as a sweet-talking MLA who will get individuals to hold out his crooked bidding by using a passive-aggressive method. Vijay Raaz is a hoot as a Nationwide Geographic-obsessed don who employs wildlife terminology whereas issuing orders to his henchmen. There’s additionally Ranvir Shorey in good type, as a hot-headed police officer who’s turning into more and more determined – and violent – because the hunt for the suitcase will get more and more intense. A phrase additionally for the positive actors in smaller roles who add to the hilarity – like Nandan’s well mannered neighbour, Vijay Raaz’s goondas, and Ranvir Shorey’s informer.

On the centre of this comedy of errors are Nandan and Lata. Kunal Kemmu does the aam aadmi routine with actual aptitude, and his scenes with the wonderful Rasika Duggal are among the finest within the movie. Their Chinese language meals analogies for intercourse ship among the largest laughs.

However “Lootcase” unravels in its closing act, dropping steam effectively earlier than the end line. At 2 hours and 13 minutes, it’s manner too lengthy; there’s simply not sufficient plot to justify that operating time. The climax is your normal Priyadarshan-style chaos of a number of characters and full insanity, though there may be extra bloodshed right here that one tends to see in comedies. Additionally, it’s fairly predictable how issues will inevitably finish, so there’s no actual level in stretching the screenplay.

The movie’s finest bits are its little throwaway moments and there are many these. “Lootcase” will not be excellent or extraordinary in any manner. However it is going to carry a smile to your face. And in these instances I feel it’s truthful to say we’re grateful for what we are able to get.
