Performances

Nara Rohith has become slim for the film. This is the first time that he plays in pakka Commercial film. Regina is beautiful on screen. She impresses the youth with her glamour. Ramya Krishna as Bhanumati Devi has performed well in her range. Ajay did his regular job. Prithvi acting is the major strength of entertainment. The rest of the characters are good.

Analysis

Balakrishnudu is a Routine story. There is no freshness in story or narration of the film but has all the commercial elements required. Particularly good humour. Many scenes are very hilarious. In the beginning of the film, the introduction scenes were just normal. After entry of Prithvi (30 Years Prithvi), entertainment has begun. The comedy timing of the scenes between Nara Rohit and Prithvi worked out well. Though the story turns out many twists, each scene ends with the viewer’s perspective. Srinivas Reddy’s play in the second half was just normal and bit stretching.Sentiments lack in Regina family scenes. The climax should have been more appealing.

Technically the film scores good marks. Production values are good. The director Pawan Mallalla should have taken more care of the story and the narration. Vijay C Kumar Camera, Mani Sharma Music, Kotagiri Venkateswara Rao Editing are good. The rest of the departments showed good performance.
