Hotstar Specials latest movie Bahut Hua Samman is the slice of life, situational comedy that follows the life of Bony and Fundoo who agree to rob a bank since they are unable to find a job after failing their final year of engineering. Guided by an odd old man fondly known as Bakch*d Baba, their master-plan goes totally awry as they realize that the bank has already been robbed and they have been arrested for it. In an attempt to clear their name, they soon fight off assassins, seasoned robbers, elite politicians and religious gurus; all the while unravelling a larger scam. Ram Kapoor’s character in this movie has had a lot of inspirations from world cinema that makes the character so unique and made Ram Kapoor say yes to the film.
Ram Kapoor essays the role of a cold-hearted assassin ‘Lovely Singh’ in the movie and has a very prominent personality. He is also seen wearing the same shirt throughout the film. Talking about his character he says, “Lovely Singh is one of the most unique characters that I have ever played. I must say the USP of this character is that he’s very unpredictable and will keep you guessing about his next move. He intentionally puzzles people before going for the kill and I was blown away by the character so much that I had to give this a nod. This character also wears the same costume throughout the movie which is inspired by Javier Bardem’s character in “No country for old men”. Lovely Singh grabs the attention because he is an unpredictable assassin and heavily influenced by the Coen brother villains. I had the best time portraying this character that has so many iconic references from world cinema and hope that audiences like it too.”
The show features an ensemble cast of actors like Sanjay Mishra, Abhishek Chauhan, Raghav Juyal, Nidhi Singh, Ram Kapoor and Namit Das in pivotal roles. Directed by Ashish R Shukla, Bahut Hua Samman is the Hindi-heartland satire on the politics and corruption that depicts the reality of the nation in a humorous way.
