Love From A Bygone Era

By Jaidev Hemmady, MovieTalkies.com, 05 July 2013 3 / 5

Lootera Movie Review-In Short:
A rich zamindar's daughter falls in love with a mysterious archaeologist, who doesn't seem to be who he claims...

Lootera Movie Review-Verdict:
Though the film has an old-world charm and aura to it, the slow pace might not appeal to today's youth.

Lootera Movie Review-Story Plot:
A Bengal zamindar's daughter Pakhi (Sonakshi Sinha) is immediately drawn to the handsome and mysterious archaeologist Varun (Ranveer Singh), who has come to the feudal Manikpur to dig and search for an ancient civilisation. The determined Pakhi goes out of her way to know him and woo him, and a time comes when both seem to fall in love with each other.

However, Varun is not there to hunt for an ancient civilisation at all and when his 'mission' gets in the way of love,  Varun walks out on Pakhi, leaving her shattered.

But life often gives second chances and by a twist of fate, Varun comes into Pakhi's life again, paving the way for love, regret and redemption.

A Classy Score Set In Bygone Era

By Joginder Tuteja, MovieTalkies.com, 04 June 2013 3 / 5

One expects a score with a period element to it in Lootera which is set half a century back. The musical team chosen is just the right too as composer Amit Trivedi and lyricist Amitabh Bhattacharya are expected to do well in recreating the era gone by. Moreover with the combination of Ranveer Singh and Sonakshi Sinha in there for a romantic tale, it is but natural that music would be the core of affairs.

This is proven true in the very first note that Lootera hits as one hears a beautiful melody in the form of Sawaar Loon. Reminding of the music from the 50s with just the perfect arrangements, pace, lyrics, time, space and setting, this love song instantly hits on you. With just the right mix of sur and taal, Sawar Loon is further made special due to Monali Thakur's vocals which are modulated so very well that there is a timeless feel to them. For someone whose claim to fame has been Zara Zara [Race], it is a huge move for her to deliver very well with Sawar Loon which was otherwise tailor-made for Shreya Ghoshal.

The song which follows next takes the soundtrack into a pensive zone but that doesn't make it a sad outing by any means. On the contrary, one feels for the mood in the film that would be really intense when Ankahee plays on screen. Amitabh Bhattacharya shows that other than being a lyricist, he is also a very good singer, something which is demonstrated well in this beautiful number. Reminding of the sound of the late 70s and the early 80s, this poetic number isn't the kind that you start humming on the streets but want to hear on repeat mode when in mood of some contemplation.

Lootera TRIVIA

Lead actor Ranveer Singh injured his back while performing an action sequence on the sets of Vikramaditya Motwane's Lootera in Dalhouse. Due to Ranveer's injury, the shoot came to a halt and may have to shift next year since the doctor has advised Ranveer for 2-3 months of complete bed rest. The scene requires snow and by the time Ranveer would recover, summer would have set in.

Lootera, Very Slow Movie
Abdul Kalam, Jul 05, 2013
1.5 / 5
Lootera movie started with very slow and keep going on at last, this movie having no comedy at all. but one robbery did very nice by group. Sonachi did a great role on whole movie some time she reacted over acting but overall its good and Ranbir role play is very nice and look like a real hero. For those person who dont like the slow movie pls dont go this movie.
