Storyline

After a failed burglary, Mumbai-based antique-shop owner, Batliwala, instructs four bumbling thieves: Pandit, Wilson, Builder and Akbar Qureshi to smarten-up, travel to Pattaya, Thailand; break-in at a residence on Pattaya Street, clean out the contents of a safe and then return home. The foursome travel there and are assisted by a female named Tanya Sharma. Following her instructions, they steal a car, travel to the address, forcibly confine it's sole occupant, empty the safe and depart. They do not know that the stolen car belongs to small-time robbers, who were interrupted in their heist of a corner store and are now on the look-out for the 'Char Hindustanis'. To make matters even worse they soon realize that they had broken into the wrong house on Pattaya Road, and the occupant they had humiliated and robbed is a notorious under-police-surveillance gangster, Lala Taufiq Ahmed Bhatti, who will not leave any stone unturned to find them, recover his money as well as incriminating ...

Once again a shameful copy-paste act from Bollywood taking it all from CRIME SPREE (2003).
2 January 2012 | by bobbysingSee all my reviews

What is done with the answer sheet, which is found to be all copied from another intelligent person's paper without his knowledge? Either the student is called and asked his explanation for the mischief done or his paper straight away gets disqualified from the exams. So here I choose the second option of not finding this movie worthy enough of writing any detailed review since it simply makes no contribution of its own in the cinematic process and just remains a carbon copy of CRIME SPREE released in 2003.

Not really directed by Rajnish Raj Thakur in actual terms, his LOOT is scene to scene lifted from the French/English movie right from its first sequence of robbery in the dark till its climax. But despite of being a replica kind of attempt, with everything ready in the plate (read DVD) to follow, the director fails to capture the comic spirit of the Original, turning it into a completely lifeless venture in all. However there is one unique point here regarding the COPIED status of LOOT.

Bollywood is known for imitating from the West as a normal routine, but here the makers not only copy the entire film as it is, but they also very lazily copy the editing techniques and graphics used in CRIME SPREE too for their Hindi version. For instance, they even write the Title of the film in its opening credits using the same settings of CRIME SPREE and later on also follow the similar graphics of splitting the screen into three parts to show three different people on the screen in their bad Xerox.

So when there is nothing in the name of any contributing creativity from either the director, writer or the editor in LOOT, therefore it truly doesn't deserve any more words here, opposing this shameful act of trying to cash in on someone else's hard work and creative expressions.
