Age shows even in films that get released late. When people watch a movie, they not only watch it but connect things as well. Suppose a super rich man uses Nokia 3310 today in a movie, any child will know that the rich man is very poor. Knowingly or unknowingly, each frame reveals when it has been shot. Then, there are films which can withstand the time stamp. Loot however, does not belong to that brilliant category and it does show its age!

Two idiot looters, one muscleman and a young lad fly to Pattaya, Thailand for a heist. The stake is big so much so that once they do this they don't have to been robbers anymore. The four succeed in entering the house and manage to tie down the owner, but later they come to know that they've entered a wrong house. They loot what is possible and escape. They did so, without knowing that there were traps.

The story had potential in the hands of a good screenplay writer. However, the screenplay doesn't have enough situations to create enthusiasm and to make the film lively. Dialogues are however, good and generate some funny moments though not great. Then, as told in the introduction, the time shows! We can see villains using the old tape recorder and old models of Nokia in the hands of people who talk crores and crores, and more. The climax was so easy, and is not done either for a comedy movie or, an action movie. When the expectations of the heroes and villains die so fast, the fate of the film is been sealed.

Action by Allan Amin is excellent at times and ordinary at other places.

One problem with the film is that we cannot identify who is the hero of the film nor the heroine. The fact is that there is no single hero and there is no heroine in the movie. Suneil Shetty is impressive in the role of the macho bodybuilder. Govinda tries his best to impress but he was just average. Javed Jaffery did his normal role without any trouble. Mahaakshay Chakraborthy is good looking in the movie but a romantic angle is missing in the movie for him. Mika Singh does a side role as a petty thief and is good for a beginner. Shweta Bhardwaj and Kim Sharma do the glam doll roles ok. Mahesh Manjrekar has done the best of acting in the film, but the character's effect was undone in the weak climax.

Cinematography gives a mixed feel. At some places it is excellent, some times ok and some places very weak.

Songs are ok and choreography is ordinary, but good.

Overall, Loot is a stale product. It may be ok to watch just to spend some time if you don't have another choice, but don't expect anything big from it.
