Raviteja is back with a bang !!
26 May 2019 | by mohit_sinsniwalSee all my reviews

Another painful movie....... Balupu tries too hard to become entertaining but falls flat.It is a complete torturing experience.The movie is a complete bore.The story was too weak.It tells the story of Shankar who wants to marry a girl who is the future wife of a gangster's nephew.Shankar and his father has a dark secret which blocks their way.How Shankar overcomes the problem and marries the girl is the rest.The same usual story with few twists and over the top action has been repeated again The limping story has been saved by the good direction of Gopichand.Another plus point of the movie is the comedy of Brahmanandam.The start was average but it keeps you entertained due to Brahmi's good comedy.The twist before the climax was average.The flashback story was grossly bad which spoils the whole movie.I felt sorry for Ravi teja who wastes his talent in such movies.Using your logic in the movie would be a heinous crime as the movie was totally illogical especially the climax which was so unconvincing and terrible.In the end a door for its sequel has been kept open.When i heard that this movie is going to be remade in Hindi then i felt so sorry for Bollywood film industry.Bollywood is a developing industry and they should try to make good movies instead of copying a mindless movie. Ravi is a good actor and again he proves his talent.His dialogs delivery and acting is very good.Brahmi is awesome.His comic timing is superb.Shruti looks good but don't have much to do.Prakash raj was average.Rest of the cast was OK. Direction of the movie is very good.Music and cinematography is average.The editing is bad as the movie can have been shortened. Watch it just for Brahmi's comedy or if you are a die hard Ravi fan.It is a usual mindless entertainer without a plot.A one time watchable movie... 7 out of 10 would be enough.
