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, 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 masala 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 opens with the introduction of villain Jitendra played by Jagapathi Babu. Then it heads to Dubai, where the character of Balakrishna is introduced through a SUV chase scene in a desert. The director manages to engage the viewers with some action, comedy, romantic, family drama and songs sequences and punch dialogues in the first half of the movie.
With an emotionally-charged interval, Legend picks up
the speed. Some political-charged punch dialogues, fights between
Balakrishna and Jagapathi Babu and a few sentimental scenes keep
you glued to the screen in the second half. The climax is also
good, but predictable. The format of the film is somewhat similar
to Simha. The film lacks freshness in the treatment of the
Krishna (Balakrishna) is an NRI, who does not tolerate injustice against anyone. He is in love with Sneha (Sonal Chauhan). The couple comes to India to seek his grandmother's blessings for their wedding. But Krishna lands in a problem with Jeethendra (Jagapathi Babu), when he heads to save people in trouble in his native. Jeethendra has a rivalry with Krishna's brother Jai Dev (Balakrishna). The fight between the two forms the rest of the story.
Performance: As usual, Balakrishna has
delivered a wonderful performance and it is his show all through
Legend. He impresses the viewers with his unique dialogue
diction, action and dance moves. Radhika Apte has also done her
best and her chemistry with Balayya is good to watch on screen.
Sonal Chauhan does not have much scope for performance, but she
steals the show with her glamour. Jagapathi babu is another big
asset of the film. Brahmanandam's comedy timing helps the director
to add entertainment quotient. Rao Ramesh, Sitara and others have
also done justice to their respective roles.
Technical: Legend, which has been made
on mega budget of Rs 40+ crores, has rich production values. Devi
Sri Prasad's music is the main attraction in the technical front.
His song compositions are good and his background score is another
big asset of the film. Ram Prasad has done wonderful picturisation,
which is one among the main highlights in the film. Ram-Laxman's
stunts are amazing. Other tech departments like dance choreography,
editing and selection of costumes and locations have also delivered
Overall, director Boyapati Srinu has made Legend in a
typical Balakrishna's style. The movie has good performances, sound
technical elements, interesting screenplay and punch dialogues. It
is good masala entertainer and a grand Ugadi treat for Nandamuri
fans. Continue to read Legend movie viewers'
