Storyline

For years Ravi Kumar is considered as the black sheep of the Kumar's family; is unemployed, does not have a stable future and gets himself involved in fights at the drop of a hat. In spite of these bad qualities there exists one good quality in him that is he is willing to fight against injustice so much that when a gangster is killed he is accused, charged and placed before the court. Ravi's parents and the witnesses know that he is innocent but unfortunately no one comes to testify in favor of him resulting in Ravi getting incarcerated. Written by gavin (racktoo@hotmail.com)

Uneven Bollywood slapstick action
17 April 2009 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

Seriously, who could resist a hero named Loafer!? The DVD almost begs to be played... Anyway, the film starts off really good which some extremely silly, but fun, slapstick of the kind you should really be ashamed you like. It's about a young, hairy good-for-nothing and his cousin (a catch-phrase mumbling idiot in rockabilly-due who gives comedians like Jimmy Il Fenomena a run for their money for the most annoying-but you can't hate them- slapstick act) and their quest for babes, steady jobs and their parents respect. Problem starts when the ruthless mayor and his henchmen starts to terrorize the town for protection money and Loafer is the only one with the shoes to stand up to him... Unfortunely the less humorous second part of the film, where Loafer gets wrongly accused for murder and runs for mayor really drags compared to the energetic first half and you can't help to get a little bored near the end. Also with a really kitschy love story and lots of song and dance numbers, of course.
