Bankchor is an uncanny wicked film from YRF. And given that the production house is denouncing its mores and making different stuff, Bankchor is one film to seek surely. We visited the sets of Bankchor, a few days back and mounted realistically, a great deal of sweat and toiling has been put into making the bank look great and close to the colonial architecture of old banks in South Bombay. Bank Of Indians becomes the venue for a lot of commotion. Catching up with Vivek Oberoi who plays the pivotal character in the film, we got him to delve out more about the exciting fun film that Bankchor promises to be. Oberoi told us, “I have never played a cop before. This is my first time. I play a CBI guy here, Yash Raj ka cop hai (smiles). Yes, my character is a supercop in the film. He is a specialist sort of a guy. He is a no nonsense, wrap up the case at the earliest, quick justice variety of cop. He was in Kargil before, has won gallantry awards there. This man is a dude. And why is he here in a bank robbery confuses everyone! After all, he is a cop of repute and stature. Ek supercop bank ki chori ke liye kyun aaya hai, something is wrong. That’s a major part of the play.”

He continued with, “The film is basically a robbery gone wrong and the worst thing that happens to them is that Amjad Khan lands outside. It’s that kind of fun. And working with Riteish is always exciting. I told Bumpy (the director) this morning as soon as I came on the sets, I told him it’s mine and Riteish’s threesome (winks). This is our third film together.

But Riteish and Vivek have always been on the same side, be it Masti or Grand Masti. But that doesn’t hinder them from unleashing another side where they are pitted opposite each other. He said, “I think this time it will be a different dynamic between us this time. It is the first time we are pitted against each other. Earlier we were always on the same side, getting bajaoed by Ajay Devgn or our wives together.”

Bankchor is directed by Bumpy of Luv Ka The End fame and seems like a fun premise, ready to be explored.
