Loveria is an unsolved mystery film. Members of the audience keep on wondering why the was film made. The term loveria was coined in a song of the SRK-Juhi starrer Raju Ban Gaya Gentleman and the makers would regret it if they watch this movie. It is a masala movie for the front row audience and even they will have to take this mindless story with a pinch of salt.

What's it about

It is a very original love story about a poor boy and a rich girl and the father of the girl objecting to the alliance. Motor mechanic Aditya (Soham), a boy hailing from a middle class family gets beaten up by goons who mistake him for someone else who had been disturbing Sweetie (Pooja), a spoiled daughter of a rich businessman. Aditya and Sweetie keeps on bumping into each other and Aditya manages to convince her of his love (as if we were expecting something else). Aditya's father is an employee of Sweetie's multi-millionaire father Shantimoy Roy (Rajatava). In a series of events of dhisum dhisum, songs and slapstick comedy, the film runs for two and a half hours, and probably a dozen members of the audience pass out by the time it ends.

What's hot

The heroine who is seen in hot pants and T-shirts throughout the film except in two scenes. Her shapely legs are on display and that keeps the audience off her wooden expression.

What's not

The huge beer belly of the hero, the hamming of the heroine, the overacting of Rajatava, the stupidity with which the hero tries to win a bet of bringing the owner of the chit fund company owner at a par with his poor father and the makers thinking that these childish plot would be convincing enough. The techno music by music director and lyricist Samidh Mukherjee and punching of Hindi phrases in songs are equally disturbing. Director Raja Chanda should have noticed that Aditya, after suffering an injury was taken to a government hospital but the bed he was seen lying was way beyond a government hospital in West Bengal can afford.

What to do

There is nothing new that you haven't already seen in millions of other films. So don't waste your time, energy and of course money on it.

Rating – 1.5/5
