By the second hour, it's impossible to be invested enough to figure out who is doing what and why the hell promising actors like Naveen Kaushik continue to be wasted in thankless bit roles.
The filmmaker has quite a good set of actors at his disposal (Riteish Deshmukh, Vivek Oberoi and Sahil Vaid) but ends up wasting them.
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.
At one point, Bank Chor feels like an Abbas Mustan thriller, what with double cross, deceit and murder becoming the mainstay of the story. But the witty comedy keeps the thrill of the concept alive.
Riteish Deshmukh, an expert at face-pulling slapstick, has little material to work with, and is surrounded by extras trying too hard to make their short appearances count.
The film has been marketed as a comedy but is actually an aspiring comic-thriller. Aspiring, because it fails majorly in being a comedy, and gives us little [that's] thrilling.
Bumpy's action comedy is a shining example of what can go awry not just during a robbery but in making a film about one.
