Storyline

Laadla (The Beloved Son) is the story of Raju (Anil Kapoor) who lives with his disabled mom (Farida Jalal). One day Raju on his way to a job interview saves the life of a rich textile mill owner (Anupam Kher) who offers him a job in his factory which is run by his ambitious daughter Sheetal (SriDevi). Sheetal's competitive attitude and open insults result in her making several enemies in her industry. Raju works as a mechanic in the mill and confronts Sheetal several times to get the workers proper treatment. Raju's fairness for workers result in him being elected as the union leader. Raju meets Kajol (Raveena Tandon), who also works in the textile mill, and they fall in love. Raju saves Sheetal's life during an attempt by a competing textile mill owner (Prem Chopra) to eliminate her. Sheetal wants to win over Raju and makes an offer to marry him. When Raju turns her down she forces his mom to agree to the marriage. Raju accepts his mom's wishes and decides to sacrifice his love for ... Written by gavin@sunny_deol2009@yahoo.com

Sridevi is an angry young woman
7 July 2009 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Don't really know how to explain or analyse the Sridevi factor. Sometimes I think she is intense and powerful, sometimes I think she overacts. Here I don't really know what to think or how to describe her. She was always angry, offensive, aggressive, and I still enjoyed her performance. It was a fresh change from what she was used to doing. No-one else existed in this film. The film itself is a cheap comic strip. It is terribly melodramatic, badly overdone, and is further worsened by laughably silly dialogues and poor production values (pretty much like every film of its sort at that time, particularly films made by directors like Raj Kanwar). But there is one good thing about it, and it is Sridevi as the vicious and damn beautiful career woman Sheetal Jetley. And I think that was quite the film's main purpose. Some people say Sridevi introduced the first anti-heroine in a leading role to Hindi cinema. Now that is complete nonsense as there were many other actresses who played negative leading roles before, and even if it was, it would not matter that much as this film is bad enough to be forgotten. It is one of many films filmmakers make for their favourite leading actress and only for her. In this case it's Sridevi. Many filmmakers who worship her made films for their ultimate goddess. This movie is one of them. It is a pathetic movie, but Sridevi makes it worth a watch.
