Movie Info

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.

  • There is much to admire in this big budget Hindi film that never falls into the trappings of the 'masala' formula.

  • It's a rare cinematic outing that exploits the camera and its frames to contextualize the intensity of its storytelling and the restraint of its lead performances, instead of it being the other way round.

  • The journey towards the end is shot through with beauty, one painterly frame after another evoking admiration, but it did not touch me. And that is where Vikramaditya Motwane's film becomes a disappointing second act, after his magnificent debut Udaan.

    Mar 19, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Beautifully-shot frames and a half decent score do not equal a good film if it cannot engage the audience emotionally.

    Oct 31, 2017 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • It's not at all trite to state that by the hauntingly bittersweet end, everything magically falls into place, for there is true magic in Motwane's mastery in crafting a such a poetic, passionately felt, and perfectly realized work of art.
