Bank Chor (lit. Bank robber) is a 2017 Indian Hindi-language comedy thriller film directed by Bumpy, written by Baljeet Singh Marwah and produced by Ashish Patil[3]. The movie is distributed under Yash Raj Film banner. The film stars Riteish Deshmukh and Rhea Chakraborty. Vivek Oberoi has been confirmed to join the cast of Bank Chor.[4] He has returned to Yash Raj Films after 15 years, his last film under their banner was Saathiya. The film was released on 16 June 2017.[5]


The plot starts with Champak Chandrakant Chiplunkar (Riteish Deshmukh) as a vaastu adherent, who is going to endeavor on a burglary according to his convictions. Two of his friends Genda {Vikram Thapa) and Gulab (Bhuvan Arora) supports him in his endeavour. This Journey of them soon unravels rather cumbersomely, pushing the folks on a wild voyage with hazardous results.Holding 28 individuals, including bank workers, security gatekeepers and clients, to recover, Champak masks as a sadhu and figures out how to stroll past security with weapons. Champak continues composing stories to persuade prisoners about his white collar class foundation to compensate for the fortune that has evaded him. In any case, things get off-track rapidly, making them run into Amjad Khan (Vivek Oberoi) who is a heartless CBI officer wanting to accomplish all the more talking through his firearm.

In the midst of everything there is a larger plot unfolding as the home minister presses the panic button.There is also the expected mad-media circus outside the bank led by crime reporter Gayatri Ganguly aka Gaga (Rhea Chakraborty) .While there is lot of chaos made in the bank by hostages like a nervous housewife, a hyper cook, a perhaps covert cop, and rapper Baba Sehgal, Sahil Vaid, playing a Faizabadi ordinary citizen, there are lot of twists and turns happening side by side.




On review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, the film holds an approval rating of 20%, based on 5 reviews with an average rating of 4.3/10.[9]


The soundtrack was released on 24 May 2017 by YRF Music.
