Loafer - Movie Reviews

Puri Mark Stale Masala.The real loafer in the movie is Posani not Varun Tej's character. Don't know why Puri stuck to this title. In Puri Jagannadh's filmography this will add up as another mediocre movie.
Greatandhra
This can be stated as a mass entertainer clubbed with mother sentiment. Puri’s presentation of the story on screen is good. The Mukunda hero impressed every one with his improved acting skills with the movie ‘Kanche’. Now he has proved as an all rounder with this Maas entertainer. Varun has performed well and can say that he has stabilized his position in Tollywood. Revathi excelled as Varun Tej’s mother. Posani Krishna Murali has done well the role in his own style.Ali’s comedy is good.Music is good.P G Vinda’s photography is an asset to ‘Loafer’.
Business Of Tollywood
Varun Tej again comes up with a sincere performance and does his part well, whether he is following his father’s diktats or later, giving the brash father a taste of his own medicine. Varun’s portions with Revathi could have been much better. When the mother-son portions slip into a melodramatic mode, it’s left to the two commendable actors to hold the viewers’ attention.
The Hindu
A film that shows a new side to Varun Tej, it also reintroduces a dose of mother sentiment to the audience.

Loafer lacks the punch.
TeluguOne
Loafer is a melodramatic movie in Puri's style. A mother-son action drama with nothing much new to offer. Other than some good sentiment sequences in the second half, it runs in predictable manner
Telugu Cinema
Go watch this movie for some moments with zero expectations
Chirtamala
Loafer is a film which will do wonders for Varun Tej’s confidence and career. The lanky hero steals the show in a mass avatar and impresses big time. But a predictable story line, hurried up climax and below average music spoil the mood of the film. Finally, do not expect anything out of the box and only give this film a shot for a typical Puri narration, mother sentiment and Varun’s all round performance.
Telugu123
Loafer produced under Century Films banner was one of the hit movies of 1973. The movie is an outright entertainer with all the ingredients which used to bring audience back to theatres.
Planet Bollywood
Loafer is a casual film targeted at the frontbenchers. There is not much thought put into the script or the making. Only Varun Tej's performance is the best thing about it. This will help other directors to come up with mass characters for the actor. He can easily slip into the shoes of any character and Loafer is just a show reel for him. Like most of the recent Puri's movies Loafer is a below average film that can be watched on TV to kill the time.
Gulte
Overall, Loafer is a film which will do wonders for Varun Tej’s confidence and career. The lanky hero steals the show in a mass avatar and impresses big time. But a predictable story line, hurried up climax and below average music spoil the mood of the film. Finally, do not expect anything out of the box and only give this film a shot for a typical Puri narration, mother sentiment and Varun’s all round performance.

The fast track director, Puri Jagannath, who generally concentrates on the speed he can make a movie, more than the subject, did the same for Loafer too and bagged the credit of holding another flop, in his list.
Andhra & Telangana Wishesh
This film defies all possible logic. It is definitely something you have seen before. It's not an extraordinary tale. Yet, you can watch it because it's not every day you get to see the birth of a star.
The Times Of India
We can say it is a 'operation success, patient dead' kind of a product since Varun Tej managed to score well, while Puri Jagannadh disappoints you big time by going for a rush and delivering a poor quality output

Andhrawishesh
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!
NowRunning
One can have a glance over the film for Varun’s performance, Disha’s glamour, Revathi’s sentiment and Puri Jagannadh’s unique style of narration
Telugu Mirchi
Cinejosh rates ‘Loafer’ with 2.25 stars feeling bad to see Puri working on an uninteresting, goalless and rotten plot. Commercially, ‘Loafer’ might pay because production standards also stood quite deplorable.
Cinejosh
Loafer lacks Mass Power!Puri Jagannath selected typical mass flick to show Varun Tej as mass hero. The story is routine and first half drifts listlessly without any purpose. Many unwanted scenes come testing the patience of viewers.
