Latif, who was just present at the location, is seen getting caught in a raid without knowing the fact about the place.
He is then sent out to jail and simply returns back after seven years of imprisonment. However, when he returns, his life is upside down, he has nothing really to do.
In all of this, we have an honest cop, ACP Sawant (Mukesh Tiwari), who is trying his best to make the society free from drugs.
He, however, faces stiff resistance from the corrupt Minister (Akhilendra Mishra) and drug mafia Zafar Dongri (Murli Sharma).
The film is a journey of Lateef and ACP Sawant, while what happens at the end is interesting to catch.
Nawazuddin Siddiqui, essays the title role of Lateef. Though he does full justice to the role, it’s amusing to see him as a college going boy. He looks way too old for that.
Mukesh Tiwari as an honest cop is fabulous in his work. Actors like Kadar Khan, Partima Kazmi and Akhilendra Mishra too are superb.
However, the star of this one his Murli Sharma, who kind of overshadows everyone.
The main dampener of Lareef is it’s poor production values, atrocious music, predictable writing and last but not the least minimal promotions.
The director, Israr Ahmed, has faltered to a large extent as he could not do justice to an ensemble that actually lit up the screen. With such strong performers in every frame, Israr Ahmed should have worked on the script a little more before shooting the same.
The film has a predictable set pattern or should we see a formula with which it moves towards it’s climax.
Watch it for the performances!!
Lateef is all about a common man, who dreams to become a doctor, but things go completely haywire when he unfortunately gets caught in drug raid. L...1.5
