Legend

My Review:- 2.75/5


Genre: Action - Drama

Theatre watched : Eeshwar 70MM

Censor Rating : "A" 

Run time : 160 Min

Pre release Expectations :
"Legend" is a much awaited movie from Balakrishna - Boyapati Seenu combination after successful "Simha"...It is touted as a highly budgeted movie with all the commercial ingredients...Devi Sri Prasad scored the tunes for the first time to Balakrishna...Finally Legend got "A" certificate from the censor board after all the "political drama" in election season...Let's see whether this movie retains the ground for Bala Krishna???

Did it reach the expectations ???

My Review :- 
If you place "Simha" in a mixer and remix it then you will get "Legend"...It is a regular mass masala movie on the lines of "Simha" with Bala Krishna's screen presence as the only striking factor..!!!

Highlights:-
Bala Krishna is brilliant in the role of Jayadev.His screen presence is superb.Dialogues certainly would hint of his political entry. 
Jagapathi Babu made a promising debut as a villain.
Second half is good compared to first half with emotional sequences.
Few fight sequences are well canned. 
Would certainly connect to B and C class audiences.
Back ground score by Devi is worth mentioning.
  
Disappointments:- 
First half is very boring with slow narration and ineffective songs.
Audiences would certainly find resemblances with "Simha" as the characterizations are pretty same.
Too much of violence.
Both the heroines,Radhika and Sonal couldn't make any impact.  
Songs by Devi are mediocre.
Brahmanandam comedy is seriously disgusting.
Routine story.
Predictable screenplay.

Engaging moments:-.   
Dialogues are powerful especially in second half.

My
 verdict :-You will get the feeling of watching "Simha" remix version when you watch "Legend"...Routine mass masala movie aimed at masses and Balayya fans...Bala Krishna did a decent job which would take the movie to a certain level at the boxoffice...!!!

Film status at Box Office:-
Openings are very good...!!!

Bottomline:- IT'S "SIMHA" RELOADED...!!!

Final verdict:-  Hit.
