Peddanna ( Krishna) is a rich businessman and owns a construction firm RK Builders. He is a large-hearted man and helps every one who is in trouble.
Chanti (Ravi Teja) grows up in the house of Peddanna (Krishna), as his mother dies in his childhood. Since Peddanna dots on Chanti, the young man lives a carefree life with no responsibility as such. He does all sorts of things including romancing Anushka.
Pradeep Rawat is a sworn enemy of Peddanna because of an old feud. He creates many hurdles in the life of Peddanna to seek his revenge. In one such incident, Chanti is misunderstood and has to leave the house.
The rest of the story deals with the way Chanti stalls the villain’s moves and saves Peddanna from danger, while proving himself to be worthy of responsibility.
Krishna gives a very effective performance. Ravi Teja is his usual ebullient self. Anushka only adds to the glamour value. Pradeep Rawat is good in the negative role. None of the comedians clicked because of the limitations of the storyline. All other actors are adequate in their typecast roles.
The story and screenplay the baladoor are the weak links in this film. Baladoor appears that the title is fixed first and the story concocted accordingly keeping Krishna and Ravi Teja in view. There is nothing special to write about dialogues, lyrics or music. Cinematography is average. Direction of the film is clearly without any strength as such.
Baladoor is just an average fare, only meant for some time-pass for real life baladoors.
