The highly anticipated comedy-thriller, Looop Lapeta starring Taapsee Pannu and Tahir Raj Bhasin directed by Aakash Bhatia will soon premiere on Netflix. The film takes the audience on a turbulent journey of Savi (played by Taapsee Pannu) trying to save her boyfriend Satya (played by Tahir Raj Bhasin) when he loses money belonging to a gangster. Savi races against time to save the day – if only she can make the right choices because Satya’s freedom depends on it.
One of the few questions everyone had when the movie was announced was about the name of the movie. Director Aakash Bhatia, speaking about the title of the film, said, “We had some ideas when we came up with the title. I meant something that had a loop in it. Therefore, I wanted to call it “Loop” but then I realized that the film had to have a touch of desi. So we went a bit desi and somewhere in the mix of that “Looop Lapeta” came in because that correctly means she’s stuck in a loop and that’s what the movie is trying to break, it’s trying to break the circle of life – the rut and monotony of life. The title therefore came from the idea of breaking a loop!
He added, “Through the film, I also wanted to pay homage to the original film – Run Lola Run. So the first syllables of the title are the producers’ tribute to Lola – Lo (Looop) La (Lapeta.)”
Looop Lapeta is produced by Sony Pictures Films India and Ellipsis Entertainment starring Aayush Maheshwari which brings together elements of comedy and romance making it the perfect entertainment package. The film is an adaptation of Tom Tykwer’s famous cult classic, Run Lola Run.
The film is set to premiere February 4 on Netflix. Watch the trailer here:
