Loafer is a Bollywood film released in 1973, directed by A. Bhim Singh and starring Dharmendra, Mumtaz Askari, and Roopesh Kumar. The movie is a drama with elements of action and romance. The film's opening sequence sets the tone for the rest of the movie as we see the protagonist, Ranjit (played by Dharmendra), escaping from prison. He is a loafer and a thief but has a heart of gold. His aim is to clear his name and prove that he is not a criminal. He meets an old man who gives him shelter and food. The old man has a daughter Rekha (played by Mumtaz Askari) who is blind. Ranjit develops feelings for Rekha but keeps them to himself.

As the story progresses, Ranjit meets a gang of criminals who are planning to loot a bank. They convince him to join them, but he does so with the plan to foil their plan and hand them over to the police. However, things do not go as planned, and the gang escapes with the loot, framing Ranjit.

Ranjit is now on the run from the police, and in a twist of fate, he saves the life of a wealthy businessman's son, Ramesh (played by Roopesh Kumar). The businessman takes Ranjit under his wing and gives him a job. The love story between Rekha and Ranjit also progresses. However, the gang finds out about Ranjit's whereabouts and kidnaps Rekha to get to him.

The climax is an action-packed sequence as Ranjit takes on the gang to save Rekha and clear his name. He is successful in both and wins over the heart of Rekha's father, who accepts him as his son-in-law.

The movie's highlight is Dharmendra's performance, who portrays the character of Ranjit with ease. His comic timing, action sequences, and emotional scenes are all commendable. Mumtaz Askari, who plays the blind girl Rekha, also shines in her role, portraying the vulnerability of the character with grace. Roopesh Kumar, who plays the businessman's son, provides a suitable foil to Dharmendra's character, and their chemistry keeps the audience engaged.

The music of the film, composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal, is a highlight of the film. The songs “Aaj Mausam Bada Beimaan Hai” and “Tere Ishq Mein Hum” are still popular today.

Overall, Loafer is an entertaining movie that keeps the audience engaged with its mix of action, drama, and romance. The story has a good pace, and the performances of the actors make it a must-watch for fans of Dharmendra and Mumtaz Askari.

Loafer is a 1973 romance movie with a runtime of 2 hours and 3 minutes. It has received mostly positive reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.5.
