'Katthi tho kadu, kanti chooputho champestha,' is now old-fashioned. Balakrishna's new weapon is word. As a journalist in Srimannarayana, he is wielding intellectual arsenal to fight evil.
However, this intrepid journo can breathe fire when he spouts heroic one-liners. As the film's only trailer (so far) reveals, Polur Ghatikachalam has put dialogues that befit this mass hero's image.
It looks like director Ravikumar Chavali has made a fine balancing act with regards to Balayya's characterization and actions in this August last week release. If it only journalist Srimannarayana, it would be intellectual. Thus it is important that Balayya behaved like a street fighter, too.
The latest trailer shows this side of our hero. When the film releases, we could be seeing his brainy side. Meanwhile, fans cheer his brawn.
