Loafer is Puri Jagannadh's third commercial film this year after the successful NTR starrer Temper and a miserable Jyothi Lakshmi with Charmi Kaur where she flaunted her assets so generously than those contributors of Chennai floods. There is something about Tollywood filmmakers who dish out films in no time. Just three months for a film and the quality is unmasked in the final outcome for the audience to experience on screen. Making quick bucks in a short time seems to be THE mantra. Not to make a case for those who wait for years to make a film hit the bull's eye.
Heroine forced by her father to get married to a wealthy businessman. Hero who does menial jobs to make ends meet. Hero's mother is presumably dead but the big revelation later that she is indeed alive. All these usual tropes are done and dusted in Telugu cinema like a gazillion times. When you make a film with the same banalities and cliches with overtly stereotyped characters without an iota of respect to the audiences who invest time and money, how on earth would it even become a partly successful film?
Even the comedy scenes falls flat. Veteran actor Brahmanandam is no more witty and entertaining. There, I said it. It's high time he revisited his old classics and stopped being pretentiously funny. It's hightime filmmakers dropped the thinking that roping in Brahma for a ten-minute comedy sequence will bring the roof down.
