The mass maharaja is back and with a bang. PVP Cinema banner`s film entertains brilliantly.
Ravi Teja is a bank recovery agent and leads a peaceful life with his father Prakash Raj in Bangalore. Unexpectedly he meets Shruti Haasan and her uncle Brahmanandam.
Cheating naive young men is what Shruti and her uncle are good at. Ravi Teja wants to teach them a lesson. But he he falls in love with her. Nasser (Shruti`s father) and Prakash Raj decide to get them married.
Enter Ashutosh Rana and we come to know the buried past of Ravi Teja and Prakash Raj. Where does Anjali fit in? To know this you should watch Balupu.
Balupu is PVP Cinema`s first straight film in Telugu. The entertainment quotient is very high in the first half. Scenes that elevate heroism have come out well.
Comedy and Ravi Teja are the best parts of the film though film`s story is not something that we have not seen before. It is kind of Pelli (1997) story but has been presented in different way. It is a template script.
Ravi Teja does what he is good at. His punch dialogues are mind blowing. The actor who was going through a rough patch has arrived. The drought days of his career are over with the release of Balupu. His comedy, action and dialogue delivery are the big pluses for Balupu. When Ravi Teja performed like Pawan Kalyan in Gabbar Singh and Balakrishna it was all astounding.
Shruti Haasan has acting in her genes no doubt. Kamal`s daughter has done a brilliant job. Shruti simply sizzles on the screen. Anjali does complete justice to her role. She gives that perfect performance that her role demands.
Prakash Raj is a great performer and he proves that again in Balupu. Lakhsmi Rai sizzles in her item number. The film would have been incomplete without Brahmi. Crazy Mohan is a delight to watch. The scenes between, Ravi Teja, Brahmi and Shruti are an absolute treat.
The first half of the film completely focuses on good comedy. In the second half it is action. Director Gopichand Malineni has strived to strike a perfect combination of all elements for a good film. His effort would have yielded results, if he had a strong script in hand. Dialogues are good. Thaman's music fits in well.
Cinematography is decent. Editing could have been crisper. Shruti Haasan`s glamour and Brahmanandam`s comedy are other assets. PVP cinema`s production values are definitely worth a mention.
Overall, Balupu is a masala entertainer with good comedy. Ravi Teja is in his elements and definitely he is back! Glamour quotient of heroines and Brahmanandam`s superb comedy has also worked in favour of the movie. Go for its entertainment value.
