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.
