Set in medieval Rajasthan, Queen Padmavati is married to a noble king and they live in a prosperous fortress with their subjects until an ambitious Sultan hears of Padmavati's beauty and forms an obsessive love for the Queen of Mewar.
The year is 1953. A visiting archaeologist called Varun Shrivastav comes to the village of Manikpur in West Bengal to excavate the temple grounds of the local Zamindar. With knowledge and experience beyond his young demeanour, Varun greatly impresses the Zamindar and his family. Especially Pakhi, the Zamindar's feisty and only daughter, who finds herself irrevocably drawn towards him. But Varun isn't all he seems on the surface. And as the simmering attraction between him and Pakhi leads to a tender and deep love, he is forced to choose between her and his past. Making his choice, Varun disappears. Pakhi struggles to move on with her life, determined to forget him and their relationship. Until one day, when he returns under the most extraordinary circumstances. Inspired from O. Henry's "The Last Leaf", Lootera is the uplifting story of two lovers. Of heartbreak, betrayal... and ultimate redemption.Written by
When Ranveer Singh read the film's script for the very first time, he wasn't sure if he could pull off the part. In fact, he even turned down the offer right away. It was on the director's insistence that Ranveer agreed to have another session of script reading. And as soon as Motwane was done telling the film's story to him, Ranveer was greatly impressed by it and found himself confident enough to get into the skin of the character. See more »
Lootera is a beautiful art of its own kind. Its light,expressive,warm,kind of romance drawn on a huge canvas. A love tale of two people following a new age period cantata. Roughly based on short story "The Last Leaf" by 'O.Henry'. The movie follows a slow yet powerful romance. The movie has comparatively less dialogues and more of creating an beautiful aura around with its expressions. Vikramaditya Motwane (Udaan Fame) has painted a beautiful canvas to show the world that simplicity is more powerful than anything subject. Sonakshi Sinha as Pakhi is top-notch, she is the heart and soul of the movie. Ranveer singh (Varun) is great, he lacks punch in 1or2 odd scenes but overall an actor to look out for.
Very rare comes an art film which handles a potential of standing tall for any commercial cinema.Lootera is an "MASTERPIECE", yes the movie has its flaws to an minimal margin but proves very powerful overall. Amit Trivedi add the perfect tune to make it delightful. Cinematographer Mahendra Shetty is the real hero to captures and portray each and every expression to its perfection.
Watch Lootera for sure. Cheers !!!
