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.

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.

Audience Reviews for Lootera


Its music is tonally inconsistent and too varied and the pacing is sometimes slow, but that music is also often very beautiful, the acting is great and the film is a pleasant mix of genres. But what makes Lootera stand out is its romance and especially ending which is incredibly poetic, romantic and, in a word, fascinating. It is one of the most romantic films ever put together.

Give it a time you wont regret watching- Amit Trivedi's best score till date IMO- which he admitted to be inspired by Burmans.
