Director Jaya Shankar's Telugu movie Paperboy, featuring newbies Santosh Shoban, Riya Suman and Tanya Hope in the lead roles, has received positive review and rating from the audience.

Paperboy is a romantic comedy-drama. Filmmaker Sampath Nandi has penned the script and dialogues for the movie and also produced it under his home banner. The film has received a U certificate from the censor board and its runtime is 2.05 hours.

Paperboy movie story: The film is about happy-go-lucky boy Ravi (Santosh Shoban), who has completed BTech and is looking for a job. He is selling newspaper for his livelihood. It is a love at first sight for him, as he develops liking for a rich girl Dharani (Riya Suman), who reciprocates his love. But the status stands between the two. How the two will unite forms crux of the story.

Analysis: Paperboy is a regular romance drama, but a refreshing treatment here and there makers it interesting watch. The first half deals impressive story, which nosedives after interval. The movie falls flat due to its unrealistic second half and poor climax, say the audience.

Performances: Debutants Santosh Shoban and Riya Suman have tried their best to do justice to thier roles and the sparkling chemistry between the two is the highlight of Paperboy. Tanya Hope, Posani Krishna Murali and others have also done good jobs, say the viewers.

Technical: Paperboy has decent production values and beautiful picturisation and selection of exotic locales make it a visual treat. Songs, background score and dailogues are other attractions on the technical front, say the film goers.

#PaperBoy - (2.5/5) Refreshing in half, Cinematic in other. While the 1st half is good with freshness, 2nd half loses at last. The movie's best is that d Screenplay n Visuals make it look Engaging and entertaining. All in all, it is Worth to watch if you like some FRESHNESS..!

#PaperBoy First half: realistic and honest. Cinematography by @soundar16 is top notch and songs are major highlight. Back ground music is terrific. Performances of the lead pair #SantoshShoban & @iRiyaSuman are natural #Paperboy second half: Emotional, dialogues by @IamSampathNandi are huge asset for the film. Comedy by Bithiri Sathi is hilarious. Production values are great

#PaperBoy has a good 1st half and an uneven 2nd half #SSobhan n @iRiyaSuman r very impressive..Dialogues,visuals and music are praiseworthy..If u can ignore the wafer thin story line and uneven narration,you are in for a decent love entertainer..A very honest attempt #PaperBoy

An old story is not a problem, but the predictability & overdose of philosophical lines are. #Paperboy

#SundarRajan DOP is Excellent High Class Visuals With an Low Budget @IamSampathNandi Excellent Writing nd MindBlowing Emotion in Movie #JayaShankarr Brilliant Direction #SantoshShoban Acting Very Natural In PaperBoy Finally #PaperBoy PoorBoy Rich Girl Love Story


Clichés need fresh story telling and a connectible narration with good characters. This movie just tries to impress us with dialogues and nothing much. A boring love tale #PaperBoy

The writing, contrived. The character development, poor. The acting, uninspiring. The background score, loud. #PaperBoy
