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.
