Set in 1950s, lootera is story of a zamindar's young daughter who falls in love with an archeologist who enters as guest in their house. But Mr. guest is more than what meets the eye.
I think it is that kind of movie which is better seen than heard by others. Go watch it.
I felt little dissappointed though how the last leaf felt little forced in the story, but saved by amit trivedi's powerful sweet music and main leads.
Ah one last thing, vidya balan may not recieve the best performance award this year as it belongs to someone else!
The script ,the photography ,the editing all come as a very pleasant surprise not to mention the heroine in very traditional saree,as we all know sarees can be worn/not as the case may be in different ways ,most of them not traditional,but I deviate.
The film is a visual treat for its sheer attention to detail without losing focus and for its skilful adaptation of Last Leaf by O Henry though I didnot see it mentioned in the acknowledgements.
In complete contrast to the rest ,this film is soft subtle romantic and achingly beautiful.
A must-see,my friends.
