An epic canvas, a quiet love story, a cops-and-robbers drama and an impressively sophisticated storytelling style: Lootera has all this and much more.

It was a brave choice by Vikramaditya Motwane to cast Ranveer and Sonakshi in ‘Lootera’ considering how their previous choice of roles has been over-the-top entertainers. Adil Hussain is proving time and again that he is one of the most bankable character

The film is more than just a film, like one of those beautiful paintings where the detailing is so painstakingly crafted that they almost transport you to the era that it was painted in, that you get mesmerised by when you come across them in old palaces

Worth a watch!

Flaws notwithstanding, Lootera is of a standard that’s inarguably higher than the Bollywood average. Here’s a director to watch out for. Behrman’s masterpiece came in The Last Leaf. Motwane’s is yet to come.
Sarit Ray, Hindustan Times 
In our Hindi films, periodic love stories have been mostly known for being a part of history with films like 'Mughal-E-Azam', 'Razia Sultan', 'Jodha Akbar', 'Chandralekha', etc. These films are known for their larger than life canvas, grand sets and mammo

Filled with some really good romantic moments, while presenting you with the complexities of the characters, this mixture of romance, innocent light hearted moments, and some gems which make your eyes a little moist and makes Lootera, a good movie.

These shortcomings steal away from Lootera its opportunity of becoming the masterpiece it was hoping to be, one that could have been remembered for years after.

Ananya BhattacharyaThere are films that leave such an impact on you that one wonders whether he/she should even write a review for it. Vikramaditya Motwane’s ‘Lootera’ is one such film. Calling it a film would probably be a deep injustice to it – it is no

Vikramaditya Motwane made the fantastic ‘Udaan’ in 2010 and showed his class with his very first film. Even though the film failed to do very well commercially, it became somewhat a cult classic after the DVD release. Now, Udaan is taught at film schools
'Lootera' does a rare feat.. It's not only a good cinema but also rewarding and inspiring something of a triumph.

Lootera is a beautifully made, brilliantly shot and wonderfully enacted love story which will be loved by the classes and evolved audience only. It is a painting on celluloid which will win a lot of critical acclaim and awards.
An India which was young as a nation and there were many changes which took place ending the Zamindari system.
Shiraj Dakshy, Rate Movies Here
Overall, ‘Lootera’ has a certain conventional charm to it but the slow pace of the film will not lure the young and restless. Watch it for Sonakshi as she will leave you spell bound with her award-winning performance.

Lootera has everything going for it right from the breath-taking cinematography laudable acting to lilting music but just not the story.

Set in antiquity, the period drama unfolds itself in an unhurried pace in a small hamlet of Manikpur in West Bengal. The story unfurls during the time of great Bengal upheaval (1953-1954), when zamindari system was on the verge of being abolished
Andhra & Telangana Wishesh
Here is a movie that effortlessly transports you to the 1950s in Manikpur and Dalhousie, and makes you a part of the era – so much so that you can fall in love with the story and the settings, despite the slow pace and the less than satisfactory climax.
