He takes the help of his best friend and partner-in-crime, Vivek (Kavin Dave) who was a superstitious person by nature and Chartered Accountant by profession. Together they jump into the money-laundering business with the idea and aim of funding a start-up and the chaos begins. The outcome was obvious, subversive gigs, peculiar humour and moralistic obsession with dirty money obtained continued throughout the film.

Behind the scenes
The writers of the movie has comically explored demonetisation, a decision which was taken by the Prime minister Narendra Modi in recent years to unearth the black money hidden in the closets of the rich people across the country.
Cash capitalized on this fuss over the black money that was the leading source for the demonetisation event and the same got meticulously presented on the screen by the director Rishab Seth.
The 118-minute film, a hilarious take on the ‘demon’-etisation was worth watching. There was no single point in the film where it got unnecessary stretched or boring.
The satire and the struggle of the common man were perfectly balanced as to how they held on to their moral compass and how they scamper through life was conveyed effectively through Cash.
