Legend Roars in social media…!!!
Film ‘Legend’ repeats the combination of actor N. Balakrishna and director Boyapati Sreenu, of the hit film ‘Simha’
Posters on social media screamed, ‘The lion roars again’. And if you were wondering what it could be, it only takes a few more seconds of browsing to find out that its about our very own ‘Balayya Babu’ in the film ‘Legend’ that repeats the combination of actor Nandamuri Balakrishna and Boyapati Sreenu, of ‘Simha’ that scorched the screens on April 30, 2010.
Three movies since, the actor hasn’t found ‘Sri Ramarajyam’ (2011), ‘Srimannarayana’ and ‘Adhinayakudu’ (2012) much by way of success and hence the increased levels of expectation from such a combination. ‘Legend’, that released to housefuls, on Friday, has Radhika Apte and Sonal Chauhan cast opposite the hero and Jagapathi Babu as the villain. Music by DeviSri Prasad has already been received well by music lovers and viewers made the connect onscreen.
Interestingly, ‘Legend’ has got an ‘A’ certificate for more reasons than one. Its got violence, loads of it, with the typical ‘Balayya’ stamp. Then again there are what some people term ‘objectionable aspects’ and political innuendos. There are visuals showing the legendary NTR as seen in the 80s and hence the objections, coming as it does, after the notification of polls by the Election Commission.
