Yes! You guessed it all right. This is the very Vikramaditya Motwane we are talking about, the one who gave us, and most importantly to the new generation who is more into Hollywood than the Hindi Film industry, the inimitable Udaan – the story of a teenager across his father’s abuse, his step mothers and his step brother. Needless to say, the avid movie watcher will have to give Lootera a try , if for nothing, then just for the writer and director credits. But the talent shower on Lootera continues to add to the list headed by Vikramaditya Motwane , we have Ranveer Singh, and Sonakshi Sinha. The two have made firm grasp on the Bollywood  ground with their debut films, Band Bajaa Baarat and Dabangg , respectively.  Of course fans have rising expectations from both as they have sort of proved their beginner’s mettle for acting.

Many have begun wondering that if the movie has any link with the namesake release of late 1960s. That Lootera however had , as expected , a very different casting with the likes of Sneha Lata , Dara Singh, Jeevan , Prithviraj Kapoor , etc. It had music by Lakshmikant and Pyarelal  – the duo famous for genius musical contribution to the world of Hindi cinema. Playback singers like Lata Mangeshkar,  Shamshad Begum  and lyricists like Anand Bakshi had been a part of the 1960s release : Lootera. However, it’s best to watch the 2012 Lootera with an open mind for a new storyline that is yet to be officially disclosed to the public.
