Verdict: A paisa vasool entertainer.
Puri Jagannadh and Balakrishna join hands together for the first time for Paisa Vasool. Paisa Vasool is Balakrishna’s 101st movie and also stars Shriya Saran, Musskan Sethi and Kyra Dutt in lead roles. Kabir Bedi is making a comeback after a very long time in Telugu movies with Paisa Vasool. Apart from Kabir Bedi, we also have Vikramjeet Virk, Alok Jain, Prudhvi Raj and Ali in prominent roles. Fans of Balakrishna were ecstatic when this movie was announced. Finally, the day has come for them to throng to the theatres. Let’s see if Puri Jagannadh and Balakrishna were able to satisfy the expectations of the audience.
Theda Singh (Balakrishna) is a person with a careless attitude who has been recently released from jail. He is selected for an undercover operation by Kabir Bedi (RAW chief) and Kyra Dutt (Kiranmayi) who is the ACP. The covert operation is to find Bob Marley, a ruthless criminal. Harika (Musskan) is in search of her sister Sarika (Shriya) who gets lost in Portugal. Kiranmayi recommends Harika to seek help from Theda Singh to find her sister. Will Theda Singh find Sarika? What is Theda Singhs’ real identity? Will he succeed in capturing Bob Marley? To know all these, watch Paisa Vasool.
This is a Balakrishna show all the way. Though he has a history of 100 movies under his belt, his energy levels in Paisa Vasool are as good as any other debutante. Be it his histrionics or dialogue delivery, he has just nailed it. Shriya Saran did an impeccable job and excelled in delivering all the emotions although she is seen in the second half of the movie. Musskan is good in the role of a girl who is worried about her sister’s whereabouts. Kyra Dutt is good in the role of a cop. Among the baddies, Vikramjeet stole the show. Alok Jain plays the role of a bad politician well. Prudhviraj excelled in his comedy timing.
After Temper, Puri Jagannadh is back to track with Paisa Vasool. His story, screenplay, dialogues, and direction are praise worthy. Without compromising on his narrative style, he has made sure that there are signature Balakrishna type dialogues from the start till the end and has completely satisfied the appetite of Balayya fans. Anup Ruben's music and background score sync well with Puri’s narration. Mukesh G's cinematography is top notch. Editing by Junaid Siddiqui is up to the mark for Paisa Vasool. Production values by Bhavya Creations are grand.
