Bollywood Crazies Opinion: Looop Lapeta is one of the most interesting film of 2020 as it adds both thriller and time ticking element in the same film. If we compare this film with the original one, it is no where near to it. The original one runtime is 80 minutes and this film is 131 minutes. The theme is similar but the adaptation is totally different. If the Hindi version could have been chopped further to just 90 minutes than it would have been a better output. None the less, a decent attempt to recreate the classic film but it is just half of it. Taapsee Pannu is the only saving grace here who took the film on her shoulder. The two things that I liked in Looop Lapeta are the cinematography and editing. The screenplay could have been much better. The background music is good. The colour tone of this film is more of like the original film. The Goa based location is good and it adds up to the story. The cartoon character of the girl was there in the original film and it has been used in just one scene in Looop Lapeta. The emotional connect is missing in this film, which was there in the original one. In sort, Looop Lapeta is not the perfect tribute to the original version but certainly a one time watch.
Looop Lapeta movie has been directed by Aakash Bhatia. This film have been written by Aakash, Arnav Nanduri, Ketan Pedgaonkar and Vinay Chhawal. Tanuj Garg, Atul Kasbekar and Aayush Maheshwari are the producers. The cinematography has been done by Yash Khanna and the editing work handled by Priyank Prem Kumar.
Looop Lapeta budget hasn’t been revealed yet by the makers but it could be reportedly around 10 to 12 crores maximum.
Altogether, Looop Lapeta is a one time watch film for the cinephile.
Last Word: Watch it for Taapsee Pannu, its editing, cinematography and direction.
Bollywood Crazies Ratings: Looop Lapeta Movie Review: First Class (60 Percent Out Of 100).
