We just recorded a massive episode of UPodcast where we do 2013 mid year wrap up and also talk about the movies we are looking forward to in the 2nd half of the year. The one movie that both our guests FilmiGirl, Getfilmy and Upodcast were very much excited for was Vikramaditya Motwane’s Ranveer Singh – Sonakshi Sinha starrer Lootera, slated for a July 5th release.
Until now not too much was revealed in the first trailer except that it was a romance set in the 50’s. The 2nd trailer changes that and give us much more of the story which seems to be Indiana Jones meets Catch Me If You Can added with some desi tadka.
How beautiful does that look?
Last time Ranveer Singh played a con man in Ladies vs Ricky Bahl wasn’t met with the kind of success as his debut so it’s quite interesting he is taking on what seems to be another role of a scam artist. As I mentioned during the UPodcast recording for me this is Sonakshi’s litmus test, she has the talent and screen presence but until now has been stuck doing inconsequential roles paired opposite much older heroes.
Director Vikramaditya Motwane’ s following up the critically acclaimed Udaan teaming up with Balaji entertainment which is an interesting collaboration. I have been listenting to the Amit Trivedi’s soundtrack pretty much non stop.
There is a lot riding on Lootera and I’m liking what I’m seeing until now.
