Storyline

Honest and diligent Police Inspector Amar lives a middle-classed lifestyle in Bombay. In his attempt to arrest bandit Sher Singh, he and Inspector Dayal are attacked, Amar survives, but Dayal gets his legs crushed under a truck and becomes wheelchair-bound. Subsequently, Amar arrests local politician, Jagannath Prasad, who not only gets released without getting charged but Amar gets reprimanded, and decides to resign. Shortly thereafter, Sher Singh hijacks a bus and holds the passengers in exchange for 25 of his jailed associates. Dayal's granddaughter, Seema, is amongst them, and Dayal asks Amar for assistance. Amar, along with ex-convict, Qasim Ali, and Karan, a drug-dealer, does manage to rescue them but differences crop up between the trio and they part ways. Then Amar finds out that Qasim and Karan have masterminded a plan to facilitate the escape of the 25 convicts, and decides to confront them. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Cheap fun
22 January 2011 | by (Khalistan) – See all my reviews

Loha looked like a decent film at first - although it had it's many flaws it still had it's share of enjoyment. The cast ensemble was the aging Dharmendra, Shatrughan Sinha, Mandakini, and Karan Kapoor.

The story basically had a very basic plot, involving gangsters, thieves, and cheap 1980's get-up wear. Karan Kapoor was very handsome, and was great eye candy - and it had some great songs such as 'Isaphir na Musaphir'. Jugal Hansraj is also a child actor in the film - and Kader Khan is very intimidating. This film was made in 1986, and still hasn't barely dated - all in all it was an okay film - not atrocious, but not brilliant either!
