Balayya and Boyapati strike back !
1 April 2014 | by aswasriSee all my reviews

As expected...movie is certified with 'A' certificate because of the dose of Violence and Political dialogues.

Produced by : Achanta Gopinath , Achanta Ramu, Anil Sunkara

Presented by EEGA fame Sai Korrapati.

14 Reels is making interesting moves. For 1Nenokkadine – It paired with EROS. Now, with Varahi.

Let us "enter the LEGEND"

Opening Shot : Introduction of the Villain JAGAPATHI BABU. Jagapathi Babu as a villain is a revelation ... Impressive screen presence and a big asset. It co'd be a BIG PLUS to Jagapathi Babu's Career. Might be the Replacement of SRIHARI.

Till now – we are habituated to see JB as a Family Hero through most of S.V.KrishnaReddy's movies. Now – we will see an entirely different JB.

This movie is a very important movie to JB than Balayya. JB is debuting as a Villain.

Suman, Suhasini enter the screen.. Suman plays role of village head. The Dialogue in the scene is good. First Fight. Begins... Between Jagapati and Suman

What's happening...One sentiment Scene is done followed by a fight - but where is Balayya.

Next Shot in DUBAI.

There He is..........

Rocking introduction for Balayya in the Legendary Totoya FJ40 in the deserts of Dubai. After fight – as usual Song follows.

Balayya rocking dance moves in 'time bomb' song...

Story shifts to Vizag.. Brahmanandam's entry.

Pattu Cheera Bagundhe ....Song

Another Comerdy Scene between Balayya and Brahmanandam.

Lasku Tapa Song with HamsaNandini. Hats Off to Hamsanandini for dancing in sync with Balayya.

1st half = Sentiment Scenes + Comedy Scenes + Fights + Songs

Interval Point is highlight of the 1st Half.

Dialogue Dhamaka....one after the other –

Extreme Violence Shown in a Magnifying Glass

It is DSP's first time with Balayya. Boyapati and DSP's previous combos – Bhadra and Thulasi are good HITs.

D S P did not do any experiments ... he very carefully researched the past movies of Balayya and rendered music accordingly.

Time Bomb is for Fans,

Lasku Tapa song is for Masses,

Legend gives you goosebumps with superb heroism,

TANJAVURU is a visual feast with good traditional dance.

His BGM in action scenes is good.

Legend is a romantic action entertainer with all commercial ingredients. Nandamuri Balakrishna's electrifying performance is the main highlight in the movie.

Boyapati Srinu's gripping narration and punch dialogues, Devi Sri Prasad's melodious music and amazing background score,

Ram Prasad's beautiful cinematography, Brahmanandam's comedy timing, Hamsa Nandini's item dance,

Ram Laxman's action choreography, Radhika Apte and Sonal Chauhan's dance sequences and beautiful locales are its other attractions.

Boyapati Srinu has chosen a tried and tested story, but he has made it interesting with some surprising twists and turns.

He has included all spicy elements like action, romance, comedy, family drama, music and a few other stuffs.

His engrossing narration coupled with wonderful performances and rich production values makes the movie a good entertainer for the Nandamuri fans.

Legend is made with a never before budget of 40 Crores (1st time for Balayya).

It was successful before release itself with a table profit. A movie earning a table profit is in fact a magic these days. All the Best to Balayya and Boyapati.
