India, 2013, 136 Minute Running Time
Topic: Romance
Program: World Cinema Now
Language: Hindi English Sub-Titles

Inspired by O Henry’s The Last Leaf, Lootera depicts the captivating, lyrical tale of an old-fashioned romance reverberating with emotions and passion. With fidelity and beautiful cinematography, director Vikramaditya Motwane (PSIFF 2011 selection Udaan) recreates the ambiance and old world charm of the Bengali aristocracy in the early days of independence from the British - a perfect backdrop for a classic love story.

In 1953, Varun, an archeologist comes to the village of Manikpur in West Bengal to excavate the temple grounds belonging to the local landowner. Cultured and knowledgeable beyond his years, Varun greatly impresses the aristocrat and even more so his beautiful, sheltered daughter Pakhi. But the archeologist is not all he seems to be and as the simmering attraction between them deepens, he is forced to choose between his past and Pakhi.

“Lootera celebrates the past, mourns the demise of love, life and things of joy and beauty, but in the end affirms the primacy of the human spirit and the power of art to tide over the blows of fate.”
- Saibal Chatterjee, NDTV
