With Amma Nanna O Tamil Ammayi, Puri Jagannadh has proved that he could make perfect sentiment dramas too. The film remained one of his best movies. Looks like he has tried to repeat the same magic but he has run out of ideas. He is just repeating all the tricks he has already showed us in many movies. While watching "Loafer" we get to remember Ek Niranjan, Amma Nanna O Tamil Ammayi, Heart Attack and several other movies.
Film begins with Posani taking away his son and training him to be a loafer and his grown up son's activities …all these make an interesting watch. The tone and the setup is perfect but it gets tedious to watch as the film moves on the regular way. Second half has some good sentiment sequences but once the Suvvi song is completed, it drags on and on and ends up with boring climax.
When Brahmanandam is brought in for no apparent reason with the Srimanthudu song in the background in the climax, we can sense Puri has run out of scenes to fill the movie. The romantic track between Varun and Disha is totally underdeveloped. Heroine's mother is killed by her own family members for a simple reason is beyond logic.
As per the title, 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.
