Looop Lapeta Movie Review:
‘Looop Lapeta‘ may be a remake of a cult German film, but an attempt has been made to Indianize it. Like its Mythology Connect. The story of Savi and Satya is based on the story of Savitri and Satyavan. The names of both are also based on their names. Victor, who became the enemy of Satya’s life from above, travels in a red car, in front of which there are big horns as if there is a metaphor for Yamraj. In one scene, Satya narrates the story of Savitri and Satyavan to Savi, how she saved him from death. ‘Looop Lapeta‘ has also given a tribute to the original film, as in a scene Savi meets a girl with red hair.
Acting & Writing:
The overall feel of ‘Loop Lapeta‘ is quirky. Be it popping colors or camera movement. Save some moments for your humor. Like at one place a girl named Julia is getting married to Robert. Julia Weds Robert is written on the card, which means correct wordplay. When the police fire with their guns, then like in old films, there is a sound of bullets firing. But in the midst of all this, the makers ignored a big thing. No matter how many different ways your camera moves, or how colorful your shots are, after a point, the story will get noticed, and this is where the big blunder becomes.
The main plot of the film was how Savi would help Satya in 50 minutes. What will Savi do, how will Satya survive, the film cannot at any point create this curiosity that you would like to know the answer to these questions. The characters that both of them get during their run, the film invests more of its time in their story. Because of this, the length also increases and justice cannot be done with the plot.
‘Run Lola Run’ did not show the backstories of its lead characters. ‘Looop Lapeta‘ does the opposite, but then after a while gets off track with the journey of its characters. Even actors cannot do anything about the weakness of the writing. Taapsee’s work is getting better with every project, so ‘Looop Lapeta‘ is also not an exception. Tahir has become a less understanding Satya, who works without thinking. He has a smile, seeing which it is understood that this guy is not very intelligent. Tahir has carried his expression in the entire film.
‘Looop Lapeta‘ will make you laugh, look funny at certain moments. But unfortunately for some moments. After watching a film of two hours and 10 minutes, it will be felt that apart from the story of Savi and Satya, everything has got space. You can watch ‘Looop Lapeta‘ on Netflix.
