It looks like the Ranveer Singh-Sonakshi Sinha starrer movie Lootera has done wonders. The Udaan director Vikramaditya Motwane's latest release Lootera, featuring Ranveer Singh and Sonakshi Sinha in the leads, has received a thumbs up from almost all the movie critics.

Lootera is a love story, that revolves around the lives of two young lovers Pakhi (Sonakshi Sinha) and Varun (Ranveer Singh). Inspired from American author O. Henry's short story The Last Leaf, Lootera is a beautifully narrated, well-crafted love story that will make you fall in love with it again and again.

According to most of the critics, Lootera is a heart-warming love story. Set in the 50s, the film effortlessly slips into the history and successfully creates an old-age romance saga, with some overpowering star performances. Filmmaker Vikramaditya Motwane's last creation Udaan did manage to win many hearts across the nation, and now his latest movie Lootera seems to have all the ingredients to create the magic again.

Go through the slider to know what the critics has to say about Lootera:

Raja Sen, Rediff (5 stars)

Lootera is a gorgeous, gorgeous film, one that uses its period setting affectionately, with loving detail, and not exploitatively, as our cinema is wont to do.

Taran Adarsh, Bollywood Hungama (4 stars)

"Lootera is an intrinsically earnest and profoundly heartwarming story that stays in your heart. An absolute must for those who love romantic films or are romantic at heart. This one's a cinematic gem!"

Zee News (4 1/2 stars)

There are films that leave such an impact on you that you stop and wonder whether or not to even try to write a review for it. Vikramaditya Motwane's ‘Lootera' is one such film.

Saibal Chatterjee, NDTV (4 stars)

In short, Lootera is a Bollywood miracle - a rare Mumbai film that is mounted on a lavish scale and yet dares not to play by the established norms of the marketplace.

Sarita Tanwar, DNA (3 stars)

Lootera stands apart from every Hindi film in the last decade at least. You wouldn't want to miss such a unique cinematic experience.

 

 

Bollywood Life (3 stars)

Lootera will stay with you if you like to see classic, slow romances that take time to unfold and invariably have some tragic element.

Gaurav Malani, TOI

Lootera largely revolves around the lead pair and both are exceptionally good in their acts.

 

 

OneIndia (4 stars)

Lootera is a classic love story, with some incredible performances. This one is a must, must watch.
