Synopsis: The year is 1953. A visiting archaeologist called Varun Shrivastav comes to the village of Manikpur in West Bengal to excavate the temple grounds of the local Zamindar. With knowledge and experience beyond his young demeanour, Varun greatly impresses the Zamindar and his family. Especially Pakhi, the Zamindar's feisty and only daughter, who finds herself irrevocably drawn towards him. But Varun isn't all he seems on the surface. And as the simmering attraction between him and Pakhi leads to a tender and deep love, he is forced to choose between her and his past. Making his choice, Varun disappears. Pakhi struggles to move on with her life, determined to forget him and their relationship. Until one day, when he returns under the most extraordinary circumstances. Inspired from O. Henry's "The Last Leaf", Lootera is the uplifting story of two lovers. Of heartbreak, betrayal... and ultimate redemption.

ln Manekpur?


Who was driving?

l was driving.

lf you drive both of

them at the same time...

l was driving the motorcycle.

Of course.



And some bad amateur

was driving the car.

Couldn't spot a motorcycle

on such a wide road

l don't think these amateurs

should be allowed...

Sorry. l'll get some cold water.

Sorry about that

Even the villagers here are

quite used to her driving lessons.


For days together,

the kitchen remained silent

For days together,

the blind dog slept hungry

For days together the

lizards crawled on the walls.

For days together, even

the rats were brought to the brink

Food came home, after days together

Smoke filled the courtyard

after days together

Rooms sparkled again,

after days together

The crow spread his wings,

after days together

Baba Nagarjuna.

Real name Vaidyanath Mishra

Lives in Darbhanga,

my native village.

Where did you say, you are staying?

l'm impressed, Varun Babu.

This mansion instead

of that guest house.

Are you understanding anything,

Debdas Mukherjee?

l can understand everything.

My parents talk exactly like this.

Learn Bengali

You'll have to learn one day

Have you seen Baazi?


You should watch it.

Now that's what you call a movie.

Dev Anand plays a gambler.

And a moment comes

when he has to choose.

a hell lot of money

or his sister's life.

Or he has to quit everything,

for his love.

He's an amazing actor.

And an even better fighter.

You want to see how he fights?

Like this, while swaying...

No matter how many goons attack him

they will not spoil his hairstyle.

''Why are you scared of the world?''

This temple's 500 years old.

Nobody is allowed to build

or demolish anything here.

This famous Radha-Krishna..

..idol is the legacy
