Balupu starts off with our Mass Maharaja-Ravi Teja saving the damsel in distress, Lakshmi Rai in a big fight. Ravi Teja's entry into the film is good and the dialogue, 'Nenu casual gaa kodithene casuality loki veltaaru...Ade concentrate chesi kodite coma loke', brought out the energy in the theaters that Ravi Teja's film usually does. With dialogues like, 'Kottaala..mimmalni kottaala...rendintilonoo punch untundiroy...,' Ravi Teja is back with a bang this time. With repeated failures till now, it is refreshing to watch Ravi Teja at his best.
Story: Ravi (Ravi Teja) is a recovery agent for a bank. He leads a simple life in the city of Bangalore along with his father (Prakash Raj). He comes across Shruti (Shruti Haasan) and her uncle Crazy Mohan ( Brahmanandam ) unexpectedly. Shruthi and her uncle have a habit of cheating gullible young men and Ravi decides to teach them a lesson.
In this process, Shruti and Ravi fall for each other. Shruthi's father (Nasser) and Prakash Raj also agree to the alliance. But things take a violent turn with the entry of Vizag Poorna (Ashutosh Rana). He reveals some shocking truths about Ravi and Prakash Raj.
Ravi and Prakash Raj have a violent past and that past also involves Anjali (Anjali).
What are those truths? What role does Anjali have in Ravi's life? That forms the rest of the story.
Shruti Hassan and Ravi Teja's chemistry is pretty good and Shruti's glamour is a huge plus to the film. Anjali's girl-next-door character is perfect for her. She does full justice for the role.
Brahmanandam, without whom the film would be incomplete, has done justice to his character as usual. Prakash Raj has also done a good job as Ravi Teja's father.
The first half is pretty fast paced and the viewers are floored with each any every scene. The second half though started off a little slow takes off soon after. There is a scene in the hospital where Ravi Teja talks like Balayya. His dialogues in this scene made the entire theatre rupture with whistles and screeches.
'Mokka ni penchuko needa ni istundi...Kukka ni penchuko thodu ni istundi...Paga ni penchukoku pranam potundi....,' such dialogues are the highlights of the film. Especially, the Balayya dialogue, it will not disappoint anyone.
Anjali, on the other hand, is also a huge plus for the film. Her innocent looks and simple gild character was perfect for her. Ravi Teja as usual makes anything work. His love story with Anjali is beautifully shot.
Ravi Teja-Shruti Hassan
Shruti Hassan and Ravi Teja's chemistry is pretty good, and Shruti's glamour is a huge plus to the film. The actors looked perfect for their roles. Shruti Hassan's glamour is a plus point for the film.
The songs placing could have been better, but having said that, almost all the songs are good and the theatre was full of energy at each song.
Brahmanandam, without whom the film would be incomplete, has done justice to his character as usual. Prakash Raj has also done a good role in Ravi Teja's father.
Gopichand's direction needs appreciation. The way he has molded the characters is very good. The fast pace of the movie keeps the viewer in place till the end.
Balupu Keeps Viewer Entertained
Brahmanandam, Ravi Teja and Shruti Hassan's scenes are very funny. The acting and dialogue flow of these actors keeps viewer entertained.
Ravi Teja and Shruti Hassan's acting together is very good. We hope to see many more films with their combination.
Technically, the film is simple. Nothing to boast about. The film is colourful throughout, and the audience are more immersed in the dialogues and would not have much time to bother about anything else.
Watch Ravi Teja doing what he is good at. Balupu, a Ravi Teja Entertainer. Watch to have fun.
