Loafer Telugu Movie ReviewFeature Film | UA | Comedy
A greedy father (Posani) gets separated from his wife Lakshmi (Revathi) who refused to bring her share in the family properties. He runs away from the house to Jodhpur with their one year old child, Raja (Varun Tej) and raises him as a Loafer. As time passes by, Raja meets Mouni (Disha Patani) who flees from her house refusing an arranged marriage. They fall in love but the love for Raja comes in package of boon and bane, that is a lead to his mother and a problem from Mouni's father (Mukesh Rishi). How these problems are solved forms the rest of the story.
Varun Tej surprises every one with his improved performance. He looks very comfortable in the mass shaded character which is his first time. Thats the benefit you get from working with Puri Jagannadh. He is always known to give a make-over to his heroes. Disha Patani is beautiful but has very little scope for acting. Mukesh Rishi is good as baddie. Posani and Revathi added the much needed muscle to the story. Its a delight to watch them. Ali as Spider Babu, Brahmi, Dhanraj and Saptagiri are completely wasted in petty roles.
Puri Jagannadh has a success and a failure in the film. The success is that he gave the much needed make-over with necessary heroism. This is Varun Tej's career best performance. Loafer is a routine story separating from mother, newly found love, separation, misunderstanding, fighting for the right and reuniting the family. Its like a old wine in a new bottle. Puri did not make full use of his writing talent for the film. He managed pass marks as director but failed as writer. Polam fight, emotional scenes between Revathi and Varun Tej worked out. The second half of the film however goes wayward till the end. Puri overlooked several logics as well as setting up basic motives for the key characters.
Dialogues are fine at places. Sunil Kashyap came up with a mediocre album but the back ground score is really effective. Cinematography by P G Vindha is brilliant. Jodhpur locales are captured very well. Art work is realistic. The production values are alright.
Loafer is a one man show from Varun Tej and he will remember it for a long long time. However Puri let him off with a completely uninteresting point. Give it a try with no expecations!
