When something what we least expect happens, we raise our eyebrows with surprise and with certain amount of expectations. Coming into films, we have certain combos which are so rare in happening like SS Rajamouli and Mahesh Babu and some others. Puri Jagannadh who happens to be most massy director who is also known for giving the heroes of his film a stylish makeover and a superb attitude. When this typical film maker meets a hero who has super mass following and super dialogue delivery talent for his punch lines, it will be a treat to watch and it happened for his 101 film. After Gauthami Putra Satakarni, when everyone waited for the director who can handle him, surprisingly Puri Jagannadh came on board for the movie “Paisa Vasool” which is bankrolled by Bhavya Creations. Let’s see how it works on us.

Theda Singh (Nandamuri Bala Krishna) comes to Hyderabad, who is a gangster. He comes to the neighbourhood of Harika (Musskan Seth) occupying the house of advocate Prudhvi (Prudhvi Raj). Harika is in search of her sister Sarika (Shreya) who goes to Portugal on her work. Theda Singh follows Harika in the name of love. He is given a secret task by ACP Kiranmai (Kyra Dutt) to end the high profile gangster Bob Marley and his gang. To nab Theda Singh, Bob Marley’s gang kidnaps Harika as Theda singh is in love with her where Harika shoots him. Why did she shoot him? What happens to Sarika? Who is Theda Singh? forms the rest of the story.

Cast and Performance

Nandamuri Bala Krishna as Theda Singh is a delight to watch on screen for his mannerisms and dialogues. His is the package of tonnes and tonnes of energy and I think no other hero can match his energy levels. Muskan Seth is good as Harika and Shreya Saran is nice as Sarika. Kyra Dutt is good as ACP Kiranmai. Prudhvi is good. Ali is as regular as he was in Puri Jagannadh movies. Kabir Bedi is good. Vikramjeeth is nice as Bob Marley. Pavitra Lokesh is routine in her caring mother role.

When the producers of Paisa Vasool announced that Puri Jagannadh is going to direct Nandamuri Bala Krishna, there is a lot of positivity and buzz has generated. Teaser and trailer lived up to that expectations and this combo has raised eyebrows. When we go into the movie entire first half has nothing much in terms of story but it is driven by Nandamuri Balakrishna’s attitude and his mannerisms. His energy and his dialogues made audience entertained throughout this half. Interval block comes as a surprise as every Puri Jagannadh movie has. Second half goes into flashback mode and it has some interesting elements like in every Puri Jagan’s movie. This movie has nothing in the style of Bala Krishna but it has everything in the style of Puri Jagannadh and it is a treat to watch Bala Krishna in a new avatar. Puri Jagannadh has done superb job as a director and this movie is a better film from him after Temper. To sum up, Paisa Vasool is a film of Puri Jagannadh for Nandamuri Bala Krishna fans which is entertaining in the own way of Puri Jagannadh.
