Ravi (Ravi Teja) works as a recovery agent in a bank and his father Mohan Rao (Prakash Raj) is bent upon seeing him married. But Ravi is always waiting for the right girl to get connected. Meanwhile, Shruti (Shruti Haasan) and her uncle Crazy Mohan (Brahmi) want to have some fun and they keep taking people for a ride with their tricks. Shruti is engaged and wants to have full fun before she gets married hence this act. One such encounter gets her to meet Ravi and eventually Shruti falls in love with him. But there is a past that Ravi and his father have. What is that past and how things take shape forms the rest of the story.


Ravi Teja as always delivers an energetic performance and with his typical style of dialogue delivery, Ravi Teja effortlessly engages the audiences. He dances with unmatched energy.

Shruti Haasan looks glamorous in the movie and she has pleasing screen presence. She sizzled in the songs and has proved that she can pull of glam doll roles well.

Anjali with an innocence in her role as a doctor managed to do the most impressive job. Her role is crucial part of the film and the song Ninnu Chusina was shot well.

Brahmanandam strikes equally and in fact he is an asset for the film. Crazy Mohan role in Balupu is one of his best in the recent times. Prakashraj plays his part earnestly while Adivi Sesh, Ashuthosh Rana leaves a lasting impact. Thagubothu Ramesh is okay but Ali’s comedy looked forced.

Technical Aspects :

Cinematography is a mixed bag. The songs have beautiful visuals but things are not so great when it comes to some of the talkie sequences. Screenplay is good during the first half but it is not upto the mark in the second half. Editing could have been better. Veligonda Srinivas’s dialogues work well and some of them have ‘double meanings’. These will work well in B and C Centers.

Thaman’s background score is effective. Gopichand Malineni has succeeded in showcasing Ravi Teja well. He scores good marks as a director with this movie. Production values are good.

Verdict :

With ‘Balupu’, we can perhaps say that Ravi Teja is back! His mass look and powerful punch dialogues work well. Shruti Haasan’s glamour and Brahmanandam’s comedy are major assets.
