A screenshot from the film "Loot."official site

Director Rajneesh Thakur's debut film "Loot" is a copy and paste work of the Hollywood movie "Crime Spree" (2003) with not a single scene added or subtracted from the original screenplay.

The movie is about four small-time robbers - Pandit (Govinda), Builder (Sunil Setty), Akbar (Jaaved Jaaferi) and Wilson (Mahesh Chakroborty) - who are entrusted with the responsibility of carrying out a robbery in Pattaya, Thailand. However, they mistakenly rob a local Don, Lala (Mahesh Manjrekar), and find themselves in a mess.

The plot might sound good, but it lacks focus since there are many so characters.

Govinda and Javed Jafferi only speak in coded gibberish. Mahaakshay Chakraborty's stereotype Christian character insists on uttering 'hey man' in every line he speaks in the film. Suniel Shetty does a good job.

Kim Sharma is natural, Shweta Bhardwaj is okay, and Rakhi Sawant's item number appears only in the end credits.

There is miscast of characters - Govinda and Javed Jafferi, who are known for their comic acting, are employed for action sequences in place of B- town's strong man Suniel Shetty. Surprisingly, instead of giving a good song for singer Mika, the director wrongly made him act. Mahaakshay, too, doesn't appear impressive.

The dialogues are written in such a way that you will feel as if listening to a mundane antakshari and the narration goes at a snail's pace.

Verdict: Watch the movie if you want to be robbed of your precious time.
