Love and love
Superb love story. Acting performence is outstanding. A good film to watch. Story is also praiseworthy.
"Lootera" directed by Vikramaditya Motwane is a beautifully directed movie.
Every set is a masterpiece itself. Sonakshi proves herself to be an elegant actress and the chemistry between lead pair is great. Ranvir singh is just increasing his level of acting. Cinematography is incredible and music by amit trivedi is perfect and its a rare flawless movie.
Poetry on celluloid
I give this movie a perfect score because it's a triumph for Indian filmmaking at so many levels. There is no melodramatic, over-the-top acting, no flamboyant palacial sets and no jarring song and dance sequences that are usually meant to fill a thin plot. Vikramaditya Motwane's film is art at its best. Acting is top-notch, especially Sonakshi's portrayal of Pakhi. A lot has been conveyed through facial expressions rather than dialogue. The pacing did not bother me at all because there is so much lyrical quality on screen that I'm glad it isn't rushed (unlike the music video pace that Bollywood has lately adopted). The Art direction gets my biggest applause for transporting the audience to the 50s with such careful attention to detail. Its not a fantastical environment like in Bhansali's 'Devdas'- rather it comes across as a well researched recreation of history. And Pakhi's wardrobe is completely drool worthy.
The inspiration from O. Henry's "The last leaf" comes only in the second half and it is interwoven extremely well with the rest of the story. The last 30 minutes do become predictable even if you haven't read the story, but that's excusable considering that you're watching poetry on celluloid.
