The Suitcase of Trouble
So, we generally use a suitcase for tour and travel but in this Lootcase Movie, the suitcase, named as ‘Anand Petikar’ by Nandan, brings in pain and trouble for the family. Nandan has been seen as a man striving to survive his middle-class life, living in the chawl of Mumbai, along with his wife’s scorning. She would taunt him every now and then for sending all money he receives, to his sister ‘Binu didi’.
Nandan works in a printing press which fails to meet the family demands, especially Lata’s desire to go to Shimla. But his fate takes a sharp turn when he gets a bag full of money in front of a Pay and Use Toilet. Initially, he thought all his dreams are going to be true, but later it becomes a liability for him as he can neither spend the money, no he could hide it from others.
Not only Nandan, this bag full of ‘Dus Khoka’ (10 Crores), brings trouble for inspector Kotle, Bala Rathore, Omar and on the top of them MLA Patil.
Final Verdict on Lootcase Movie
The Lootcase Movie is overall a blast of comedy, filled in all the scenes. The light and humour plot is an addition to the reality and the hardships of a middle-class man which no one can deny. The brilliant acting skill of Aryan Prajapati, the dramatic son of Nandan is something to attract everyone’s attention. Then comes Rasika Dugal, a proper portray of the typical housewife. The manipulative MLA Patil is an actual representation of a perfect hypocrite. He keeps on threatening people to make them work for him. Inspector Kotle is a typical cop who has his strings attached to MLA Patil.
Last but not the least; Kunal Khemu’s effortless acting skill has made the character a dynamic one. Overall, this bag and this layman will not let your expectation down as a comedy movie. Hope you will like this movie too.
