Lootcase Movie Plot
Lootcase is a new-age comedy riot which thrives on chaos. The drama revolves around an average guy, Nandan Kumar who is going through a difficult time to pull his family out of financial crunch. One day, by serendipity he finds a red suitcase filled with money. While Nandan is excited about his new found luck, everyone else is plotting to get their hands on the suitcase. The red suitcase belongs to a politician Minister Patil who was getting it delivered to another politician and how his gang of goons go behind finding the bag. Nandan, for whom it’s a treasure he could only dream of, treats the red suitcase as his new virtual friend and calls him ‘Anand Petikar’.
Lootcase Movie Review
Kunal Kemmu is one of the most underrated and under-utilised talents. If you loved him as a devious cop in Malang, you’d enjoy him portraying a common man. His comic timing is outstanding, and his talent is rightly used this time. Rasika Dugal plays Kunal aka Nandan’s wife, Lata. If you think she is there just for the sake of it, you are wrong. She is a strong force in Nandan’s life and the story-telling. When talents like Gajraj Rao, Vijay Raaz and Ranvir Shorey come together, expect fireworks on the screen. Oh, well, Shah Rukh Khan kind of has a ‘cameo’ thanks to a rickshaw driver in the movie!
It is Rajesh Krishnan’s debut movie in Bollywood. His past work includes directing ads, and that has come in handy for him. He knew what to tell, how much to show and avoid going too far. During the pandemic, we all want to have a good laughter. Well, Lootcase provides you with that. It’s refreshing to see black comedy as we see in series like Fargo is shown, with no objections. So don’t think twice and keep your snacks ready to enjoy and root for this loot-chase!
