The trailer for Taapsee Pannu and Tahir Raj Bhasin’s film Looop Lapeta starts with a basic view into their relationship. While Bhasin’s character Satya fell in love with Taapsee’s Savi after their first fight, Savi had decided that it was time for her to settle down and ‘stop running’. However, things go haywire when Satya loses a gangster’s money after a bad day in a casino.
With an ultimatum hanging in the air, Savi rushes around trying to get the 50 lakh to save her ‘useless boyfriend’ but fails. After the gangster kills him, she realises that she is stuck in a time loop that might end only when she manages to save her boyfriend’s life. The couple gets stuck in several comical and tense situations as they try to retrieve the cash.
Looop Lapeta is directed by Aakash Bhatia and has been produced by Ellipsis Entertainment and Sony Pictures Films India. The film is scheduled to release on Netflix on 4 February.
Talking about the film, Taapsee Pannu said in a statement, “This compelling story was extremely enjoyable to make along with my director, Aakash and co-star, Tahir. I cannot wait for fans and audiences to watch this edge-of-the seat film and enjoy it as much as we loved making it.”
Tahir Raj Bhasin said in a statement, "The film is a clutter-breaking on new age romance, and a genre I am exploring for the first time. I can’t wait for the world to meet the characters Satya and Savi. Our director has a unique style stamp that has created a visually stunning world where thrill and comedy combine for one crazy rollercoaster of an entertainer.”
