In his 101st film, Balakrishna delivers his trademark dialogues in a powerful way.

Nandamuri Balakrishna movies usually hit the screens amid much public talk and his latest venture ‘Paisa Vasool’ too is not an exception.
In the run-up to its release, the movie garnered much publicity and generated lot of interest not only among his avid fans but also among others.

Its all about setting a criminal to catch another. Theda Singh (Balakrishna) is a dangerous criminal well aware of the criminal world and its activities. And he is dangerous.

At the same time, law enforcement agencies are desperately trying to catch an international mafia don Bob Marley (Vikramjeet Virk). All their efforts goes in vain as Bob, operating from Europe remains elusive even for the global law enforcers.

Desperate and with no other option left, they turn to Theda Singh and seek his help in catching Bob. And how Theda Singh achieves this in his own way forms the crux of the movie.

In his 101st film, Balayya continues with his looks and delivers his trademark dialogues in a powerful way which are lapped up by his fans.
Director Puri Jagannadh has made the best out of Balayya’s mass image. Although there are three heroines in the film, Shriya Saran plays the lead. Both Kyra Dutt and Muskan Sethi are decent with their roles.

Influence of Puri Jagannadh’s previous films keeps getting reflected in this movie at several points. Pruthvi, Pavitra Lokesh and others are suitable in their roles.

The film is quite rich in its production. The second half, set in Europe looks grand. Music and background score by Anup Rubens is good enough. On the whole, ‘Paisa Vasool’ is worth a watch this weekend.
