Bank Chor: Movie Review
When there’s Riteish Deshmukh and Vivek Oberoi together in a film, don’t you expect crude and vulgar jokes? People expected the film to be the ones like the Masti series but Bank Chor totally made us believe that we shouldn’t judge a film before watching it.
Revolving around a bank robbery with major twists and turns every now and then, Bank Chor has failed miserably at the box office.
A very irritating cameo by Baba Sehgal, flat jokes in the first half, unnecessary Mumbai-Delhi rivalry, shattering the belief in Vaastu and throwing a light on corrupt politicians, the film is drab. You can call the second part little bearable when compared to the first but overall the film falters in every aspect.
Deshmukh’s and Oberoi’s characters have not been given the required depth. Deshmukh’s sidekicks Genda (Vikram Thapa) and Gulab (Bhuvan Arora) have the potential if given the right chance. Sahil Vaid is the one to watch out for. Rhea Chakraborty has somehow managed to play the role of a journalist but her pencil skirt with spaghetti strapped tops will make you cringe.
Anupama Chopra gave the film 1 star out of 5 and said, “ Bank Chor is a tiresomely bad film. It’s just witless and pointless and it leaves you utterly depleted.”
NDTV reviewed the film stating, “Even a substandard or cliched basic plotline could have been sidestepped were only the gags smart enough, or, at least, that there were enough of them. This one spends too much time not going for the laughs. It starts off being about blank chors, and ends up a bank bore.”
Times Of India rated the film 2.5 on 5 and mentioned, “it is too reminiscent of bank-heist movies of the past; there are even clear shoutouts to the Dhoom franchise. A better plan of action and a few dry runs with the script would have ensured a product to bank on.”
Are you still planning to watch the film? WELL, DON’T!
