Lootera reminds you of the time you have wondered, why people fall in love despite themselves.

Word of mouth – in a world where the head rules the heart lootera takes us back to a time when love was all heart.

Rating - *** /12 (Solid)

Ticket meter – worth 250 bucks

In spite of all that good karma, this film still comes in at just about average. The pace is slow and plodding, and the romantic chemistry is missing. I hear the film being lauded as a masterpiece. So be it. Only it is a masterpiece which failed to move me.
