There is some thing truly poetical about the Hindi film ‘Lootera’. Whether it is the ethereal beauty of Sonakshi Sinha as Pakhi or the appeal of a savvy scoundrel in the form of Varun Shrivastava essayed by Ranveer Singh, you will find yourself drawn again and again to the Hindi adaptation of the famous short story ‘The Last Leaf’ by O. Henry.
Set in an aristocratic mansion in the bye lanes of erst while Calcutta, the movie moves around the doting father and his adoration of his sick daughter, Pakhi.
The music, the setting, the subtle play of light, the transformation in the character of Pakhi, post the betrayal of Varun Shrivastava and the end, everything about this movie makes it a master piece in cinema.
For the experience of great music, unbelievable singing, brilliant acting, great story line, ‘Lootera’ definitely is worth more than a watch.
