Here is Balakrishna’s Paisa Vasool Movie Review:
After doing historic epic Gauthamiputra Satakarni, Nandamuri Balakrishna is back to his forte – mass masala film – for his 101st film Paisa Vasool for which he collaborated with director Puri Jagannadh. The film’s teaser and trailers have garnered a great buzz resulting in selling of the opening shows like hot cakes. Let’s check out whether the film lives up to all its hype or not.
Theda Singh (Balakrishna), a vagabond, has walked out of Tihar jail and he makes his splashy entry by dancing alongside a beautiful chick (Kyra Dutt) who later turns out to be Assistant Commissioner of Police. She traps Theda Singh for a mission to nab most-wanted international don Bob Marley (Vikramjeet) who is controlling the entire share market, real-estate. He has a weakness – his younger brother.
Raw chief (Kabir Bedi) agrees to rope in Theda Singh to complete the mission to kill Bob Marley. What Theda Singh gets in return is police support and money. He accepts the proposal and goes to Bob’s gang for ‘compromise’.
Meanwhile, Bob’s gang is after younger sister of Sarika (Shriya Saran) – Harika (Musskan Sethi). And Theda Singh, Harika’s neighbour who likes her, comes to her rescue from Bob’s goons. After some twists and turns, the movie shifts to Portugal. Who is Sarika? Who is Tedha Singh? What is their connection? What happened in Portugal? And how Sarika, Tedha Singh relate to Bob Marley?
Balakrishna is as usual. He is in his elements. Both as Theda Singh ( a cab driver) and Bala aka Balakrishna,a raw agent, he delivers his best. He is the showman. He carries the whole film on his shoulders. Shriya Saran has brought some freshness to the film.
Muskkan Sethi and Kyra Dutt rev up the glam quotient. The duo shine in their limited screen presence. Musskan’s role has connection to story. Kabir Bedi is okay. But he deserves something better. Vikramjeet is good as baddie.
Interview Episode in Second Half
Puri and Balayya’s combination has generated huge hype. And Puri chose a formula film to meet the sky-high expectations of fans. So naturally, Puri didn’t give much preference to story and screenplay. He has picked up a simple yet predictable story that has been done to death on screen.
Also, Puri has put his total focus on Balayya that he left everyone else to the last. He conveniently forgot about showing villain’s cruelty making Paisa Vasool a single-man show until villain shoots Sarika (Shriya).
On the whole, Paisa Vasool is just made to appease Balayya’s hardcore fans who could enjoy his screen presence, his punch dialogues and punches to baddies. The film is all about Balayya, Balayya and Balayya. Songs are fine. Anup’s background score is very impressive. Photography is nice. Locales of Portugal have been well captured.
Paisa Vasool is strictly for Fans.
