Hrithik Roshan Applauds ‘Lootcase’ as a Masterpiece in Cinematic Comedy


In a gesture of warm commendation, Bollywood’s own charismatic superstar Hrithik Roshan recently extended his praise to a fellow thespian, Kunal Kemmu, for his outstanding performance in the 2020 comedy caper, ‘Lootcase’. Directed by Rajesh Krishnan, the film has not only garnered appreciation from audiences and critics alike but has also earned Kunal Kemmu the prestigious Dadasaheb Phalke International Film Festival award for Best Actor in Comedy in 2021.

Hrithik, known for his distinct persona on the silver screen, didn’t hesitate to take to his X (previously known as Twitter) account on Sunday to articulate his admiration for Kemmu’s cinematic prowess. Roshan’s words were candid and heartfelt, “I just saw ‘Lootcase’. Loved it!! Kunal Khemu is such a brilliant actor. Been hearing rave reviews for his ‘Madgaon Express’ as well. But ‘Lootcase’ is just terrific. My belated congratulations to its director Rajesh Krishnan and all the actors and entire team! What a fun film!” The endorsement was infused with the energy of an oncoming fist emoji, emphasizing the punch that the movie has evidently delivered.

‘Lootcase’ presents itself as a humour-laden journey, with Kunal Kemmu essaying the role of Nandan Kumar, a quintessential middle-class man caught in the vortex of family responsibilities and monetary constraints. The narrative takes a comical detour when Nandan stumbles upon a suitcase brimming with currency, ushering an array of unpredictable events. The ensemble cast, comprised of talents like Rasika Dugal, Gajraj Rao, Ranvir Shorey, and Vijay Raaz, each contributes to the laugh riot with impeccable timing.

Parallel to the success of ‘Lootcase’, Kunal has also been turning heads with his directorial debut, ‘Madgaon Express’. The film marks a significant milestone in Kemmu’s career, portraying the tale of three friends who undertake a coastal journey to Goa, with results that go hilariously awry. Starred by Divyenndu, Pratik Gandhi, Nora Fatehi, and Avinash Tiwary, the movie delves into the bond of friendship amidst chaos and serendipity. Kemmu shared his transition into direction with mid-day.com, stating, “I had written the film for myself to act in. But when I narrated it to Farhan, he suggested that I direct it. I felt I wasn’t getting the opportunities I wanted. Do I want to crib about the opportunities that I don’t have, or work on creating opportunities? That’s how ‘Madgaon Express’ happened.”

Shifting focus back to Hrithik Roshan, the actor continues to captivate audiences with his versatile performances. His latest appearance was in the patriotic action thriller, ‘Fighter’. Alongside a robust cast including Deepika Padukone, Karan Singh Grover, Anil Kapoor, and more, Roshan plays an Indian Air Force pilot, depicting the intricacies of duty, valor, and sacrifice.

The accolades from a seasoned actor like Hrithik Roshan certainly add a feather in Kunal Kemmu’s already illustrious cap and potentially open a wider audience appeal for ‘Lootcase’ and ‘Madgaon Express’. The Bollywood fraternity often thrives on such mutual respect and recognition, which not only enhances camaraderie but also encourages the artistic community to push the creative envelope even further. As audiences, we’re left with the promising prospects of experiencing more such engaging and entertaining works from these prolific artists. With inputs from ANI, this report highlights the threads of admiration that continue to weave the fabric of Bollywood’s dynamic and ever-evolving cinematic landscape.
