The film revolves around a red suitcase full of money, which somewhere is found out by Kunal Khemmu playing Nandan Kumar. He is a common man coming from a lower middle class section. Before he reveals about the same, the goons are behind getting the suitcase back, this leads to a comedy of errors, which makes it interesting to watch at the said OTT platform.
This is not the first time when we get to see a movie based on a suitcase with missing getting lost. The art lies in the way you come out with an interesting way of storytelling. WIth lootcase, the makers knew what was the story and how it is required to be told. The film comes with a tight script, which does not fall any other place. The story keeps you laughing and choked at the same time. The humor is perfect and comes up with the right kind of drama, suspense and action. At the end, the film appears like a dark comedy with a serious climax giving you too many LOL moments. But the fact of the matter is the film is beyond the action and comedy. It has shown people with different norms, standards, conscience and beliefs.
Talking about the star performances, we often see Kunal Kemmu be among the most underrated and underutilized talents in B Town. In this film, portraying a common man, he seems good with his good comic timing. The makers were able to use his talent in the right way. Hopefully, with this film, he will start getting roles, which suit his talent and potential. On the other side Rasika playing his wife Lata remains a strong force in storytelling. The actors like Vijay Raaz, Gajraj Rao, and Ranvir Shorey come along with some good fireworks. Vijay, an unusual don with the obsession of watching wildlife documentaries of animals is good to catch.
Ranvir Shorey playing a no-nonsense cop. However, also makes you laugh while others in the star cast also did their roles the right way. Now, talking about Direction, Music, and other elements, Rajesh is able to capture the essence of Mumbai with LC. One case the potholed roads, the typical local trains, and auto rickshaws. The music seemed okay and so are the case of other elements like photography, screenplay, and other things. These things are able to shape up the film the best.
Lootcast The Last Word
As we live in this pandemic, catching Lootcase comes with a good escape as it makes you laugh at this tough time. It can be called as a refreshing film with good black comedy at its core. Enjoy this loot chase with this film.
