Sonakshi Sinha and Ranveer Singh-starrer “Lootera” hit theatres this Friday. While the film fraternity has been raving about the film with critics also giving it maximum stars, it seems the audience has not accepted the film.
Directed by Vikramaditya Motwane, “Lootera” is a period romance set in the 1950s. The music of the film, which has been composed by Amit Trivdei, is being appreciated.
The film wears two distinctly ‘classic’ looks in sweaty bustling Kolkata and forlorn snowy Dalhousie, both shot with fetching discreetness by cinematographer Mahendra Shetty. The Kolkatan periodicity of the 1950s relies excessively on extraneous props. Putting songs of Geeta Dutt, Mohammed Rafi, Hemant Kumar and Lata Mangeshkar of that era in the backdrop is the easiest and laziest way to get the characters to “feel” the bygone era.
