Lootera : A Cinematic gem
Assumed Motwane’s sophomore to be a masterpiece after the real life drama Udaan and I was right. He was the man behind the magnificence of Lootera. Lootera which happens to be an adaptation of O Henry’s ‘The last leaf’ brings a fresh new couple of Ranveer and Sonakshi for the first time together in a period-love story. I wanted to watch this film keeping into the mind the exquisite pairing and a powerful tale of two lovers. Love story in Bollywood always meant either a direction by the late Yash Chopra or Aditya Chopra or display of superb acting skills by the King of romance Shah Rukh Khan. However for all the romantic film lovers, Lootera is a worthwhile and a stand-out movie. Something totally new-fangled than the usual romantic movies Bollywood has witnessed before.
Motwane is the man who deserves this stature as he strikes the emotional chord with Lootera. The movie begins with a beautifully crafted Ram Leela scene in a village of Manikpur as we see dazzling lamps all around the place making the area illuminate with affluence and grandeur. Set up in 1950’s West Bengal, young girl Pakhi (Sonakshi) sharing a very strong rapport with her father who happens to be a local zamindar of Manikpur village. Her happy-go-lucky life takes a detour when an archaeologist Varun (Ranveer) arrives into the village to investigate about some ancient ruins which were supposedly under the zamindar’s land. Varun, with his passion for music & his excellent work earns the love and attention of both Pakhi and her father.
Some of very impressive scenes come our way as love starts to blossom between Pakhi and Varun. Eager to learn painting, Pakhi tries to learn painting from Varun even though she is aware that she knows painting better than Varun. Varun spends hours with Pakhi both sitting beside the lake and discussing about their ambitions or by trying to learn painting from Pakhi who in turn offers to teach him in order to keep their meetings going on.
We start to expect a love story ahead however pertaining to the title of the film; Varun turns out to be a robber who loots the zamindar of all his wealthy possessions and leaving Pakhi amidst sorrow and pain. Till the interval of the film, Lootera tries to keep up well with the plot sufficiently proving to be a reminder to Aamir Khan’s role as a terrorist in blockbuster movie, Fanaa.
In the latter half of Lootera, film is set up one year later than it had ended before the interval showing beautiful snow capped areas of Dalhousie where a heartbroken Sonakshi lay in her house suffering from severe tuberculosis only to witness her lost love Varun come back in her life. Pursued by the local cops of Dalhousie, Wounded and devastated Varun seeks refuse in Sonakshi’s house.
Lootera is mainly a love story about a robber and a wealthy girl which finally ends up in an unfortunate tragedy. It is a celluloid poetry with some really remarkable and an outstanding direction by the Udaan director. There is no revelation in the story as the plot is predictable and you are sure that the love affair is going to end in a misfortune. For the people fed up with slapstick comedies and overrated action movies, Lootera promises a refreshing change providing an ambiance that lures you into the world of two lovers.
The supporting cast including Divya Dutta, Vikrant Massey and Shirin Guha creating a powerful impact. Lootera happens to be Sonakshi’s best till date as she undergoes transition from a happy-go-lucky girl to a bitter to an absolute arrogant girl quite flawlessly. The songs are profoundly heart-warming aiding the poignant and challenging roles by the two actors.
For the section of audience who desire an art house cinematic experience, Lootera is a must-watch for them.
