Cast: Raviteja, Anushka
Direction: Udaya Shankar
Baladoor does not boast of a refreshing storyline. It is replete with regular dose of fights, songs and some laughs thrown in. Raviteja is Chandramohan’s son and they all live in a joint family headed by Chandramohan’s brother Krishna. As usual Raviteja is branded as an aimless man getting into street brawls and frequent arguments with his father. The hero’s sister-in-law finds herself in a problem and he saves her from the embarrassing situation.
He also bashes up the goons who happen to be Krishna’s business rivals and basically does lot more things to uphold the family’s prestige and in the process becomes a black sheep amongst his people. It takes a while before his uncle Krishna and his father realise his worth and repent.
Anushka relocates his house to win his love and their love story is rather sweet. There is Sunil and Brahmanandam who tickle your funny bone.But here Baladoor disappoints on more than one occasion. The clichéd subject doesn’t keep pace with the hero’s antics. Anushka has lost weight and she sizzles.The music is passable and the tunes give you the feeling that you have heard them before. Finally, Baladoor is an average film, as the banner doesn’t offer nothing new in narration.
