Balakrishna's hiatus had to be broken by Legend, no other film could have heralded his return this way. Legend is legendary. Don't forget to watch this film.
Boyapati Seenu brings Balakrishna back to us, our memories still scarred from Simha. For the first one hour we were treated to a choice selection of punches. Good thing is they were funny and enough to keep us engaged through out. Balakrishna spares nothing in keeping 'all sections of the society' happy with the film-there is comedy, romance, comedy, action comedy and more comedy. The audience is punched out by the end of the first half.
There is also the beautiful Radhika Apte with more character than star value and the glam damsel Sonal Chauhan does exactly the opposite.
Of course, we were all amazed by the 'richness' of the film and not the scant production value of our ordinary average film. All of this and Devi Sri Prasad's music makes it seem like a good film to watch, a commercially successful venture that will draw all the bored and the jobless to be entertained thereby achieving the hit status every film craves so desperately.
For the first time after a long time, Jagapthi Babu tries his skills at being a villain. I will not commend his efforts. Go watch if you have to. I will not vouch for it adding any value to your life.

So you are supposed to treat this like an everyday thing, this is how films are made in these parts and we must swallow this bitter non-sense for the occasional casting novelty or a cliché being reworked for the fans, you know how much the fans hate anything original. Stop referring to the fans as some sort of non-human entities, in a sense they are, but, it’s a very give and take process and you should stop feeding them so much shit.
Boyapati is so much fun, when I look at these scenes with a whole lot of female actors (all made to look desirable) playing the sisters, cousins and domestic help at Ballaya’s palace of love, and B.S. is so visible in every line, in every gaudy lamp, all the jewellery. Such freedom with such massive budgets, thought directors took a while to get to that place where you can play commander on an expensive set. And only a very limited set of people get to do that, the ones on top, now which would infer B.S. is in the top cadre. This is where we are? Yes fool, stop cribbing about it. You know with a few radical things happening around us, sometimes you get carried away. Not here, this place is full of ancestors and ghosts. I know, scary stupid.
Bala Krishnas (one shaven and one that looks rugged) fight the many evils of society at the root level and sometimes at the head of it while struggling internally when the family distances itself from him for this philanthropic violence. There’s two heroines (one’s a nymph and the other a little in control of her feelings for Ballaya), Jagapathi Babu for a fancy villain who is still surprised when Ballaya kills about 20 odd people in the climax after he’s repeatedly experienced Ballaya kill countless men once every 15 minutes in the run time, bad memory, he doesn’t remember stuff? What’s the villain’s case?
As far as the commercial viability of it goes, if Simha could do so well at the Box office I don’t see why this shouldn’t. It’s got its moments, though totally abrupt and over elaborates, so was Simha. Total B.S.

Lets start this review a bit differently shall we? There is a headman in a village, rich and well respected. Obviously, the entire village dots upon this person while there is one family whose only aim is to kill this guy. Ultimately, they succeed. In the due course, they either miss or forget about this headman's son who grows up later and comes back to avenge his fathers' death, despite many attempts of his grandmother and/or relatives to stop the kid from coming back to his village. Heard somewhere? Yep. Thats our story today. We have seen so many Jr. NTR movies, Balayya movies and as a matter of fact Chiru movies with the same script and Legend falls into the category.
Sonal Chauhan is introduced in a bikini while Balayya is in a flowery shirt dancing around. It is always a wonder how good he dances even today taking us back to the good old days of Aditya 369. Radhika Apte is apt as a traditional wifey look. Suhasini looks as if she has got more gold on her than in the reserves of US. Jagapathi Babu is in refreshing role, although we all know how it is going to end (actually, at one point I was rooting for JB to win lol). You would definitely miss Sonal in the second half though. Songs are OK, the legend title song is really really boring. There is a lot of creativity in the stylized weapons but less creativity in either lyrics or screenplay. Brahmanandam better stop acting now because it is really irritating to see him with the same old vulgar jokes about bald head and women. Wonder what happened to the Little Soldiers and Babai Hotel brahmi...
All in all, this is a movie worth missing. It is a headache to watch from the beginning and quite a predictable story. Better to watch some C-Grade cinema instead, at least there will be skin show!!! Balayya - when will you learn?
