Director Pavan Mallela's Telugu movie Balakrishnudu starring Nara Rohit, Regina Cassandra and Ramya Krishnan, has received mixed reviews and ratings from the audience.

Balakrishnudu is a romance-action film with a good dose of comedy. Raja Kolusu has penned the script for the movie which is set against faction backdrop. The movie has been awarded a U/A certificate by the censor board and it has a runtime of 2 hours 22 minutes.

B Mahendra Babu, Musunuru Vamsi and Sri Vinod Nandamuri have bankrolled the film under the banners Saraschandrikaa Visionary Motion Pictures and MayaBazar Movies

Balakrishnudu story: Balu (Naara Rohit) is an orphan who is raised by Ranghunandan Yadav (Kota Srinivasa Rao) He is a free-spirited young guy and his highest priority in life is to earn money. His lust for money lands him in trouble and his love life with Aadhya (Regina Cassandra) is also twisted. What happens next forms the crux of the story.

Analysis: Balakrishnudu is a typical masala entertainer, which has nothing new or fresh to offer in terms of the story. Some action, romance and comedy sequences keep you engaged in the first half of the movie. The second half is also equally entertaining and engaging, say the viewers.

Performances: Naara Rohit has delivered a good performance, which is the highlight of Balakrishnudu. Regina Cassandra has done justice to her role. Prudhvi and Srinivasa Reddy's hilarious comedy is another attraction of the film. Ramya Krishnan, Ajay and Kota Srinivasa Rao have also done a decent job, say the filmgoers.

Technical: The movie has good production values, and cinematography and action choreography are the main attractions on the technical front, say the audience.

#Balakrishnudu is a routine mass masala formulaic film. We have seen hundreds of such films in past decade. Nara Rohit is looking good. Regina has nothing much to do. Ramya Krishna is wasted. Debut director Pavan Mallela only proves that he can manage a formulaic film.

#Balakrishnudu is action packed faction drama with racy screenplay, #NaraRohith amazes in new powerful mass avatar, delivers superb performance with different body language and dialogue delivery with Telangana and Rayalaseema slang #Balakrishnudu @pavan_mallela packaged this regular mass action entertainer with hilarious comedy and entertainment. #Balakrishnudu ravishing beauty @ReginaCasssandra is not just eye-candy but also gives her best in the role with performance scope, her romantic chemistry with #NaraRohith is alluring, #Balakrishnudu Music by 'Melody Brahma' #Manisharma proves again that he is best for mass faction film. He gave terrific BGM that added power to action episodes. All the songs are good but mass track 'Ardharathri Sureedu' stands out.

In a commercial movie you can't just let audience do their swetchanuvadam when you have to tell them a story. Also, when you lack stithapragnatha you make #Balakrishnudu. A lazy attempt at commercial entertainment.
