'Lootera' could have easily fallen into the trap of being an old-fashioned cliched melodrama but Vikramaditya Motwane saves the film intelligently using his craftsmanship. He throws in long silences, layered voices, beautiful locales and a riveting background score to convey the eternal love. Inspired from O' Henry's celebrated short story, 'The Last Leaf', Lootera is an intense love story at its core backed by stellar performances from its lead pair. Sonakshi brings varied emotions with ease while Ranveer surprises you with a layered performance and their chemistry works hugely in favour of the film. Amit Trivedi's soothing score does the fine tuning splendidly as Lootera like the director's debut film 'Udaan', turns out to be an emotionally satisfying experience. Don't miss this classic!
