Paper Boy Review

Jaya Shankar’s paper Boy teaser and trailer were well received, in fact, Superstar Mahesh Babu also heaped praises on the team. But how the movie has been etched out, we have to see.


Director Jaya Shankar narrates with the perspective of Megha (Tanya Hope”), a girl who suffers from a rare disease but finds hope to live by encountering a love tale of Ravi (Santosh Sobhan) and Dharani (Priya Shri).  Gadwall Reddy (Posani Krishna Murali) is a professor born with a golden spoon. His sons stay in the US while daughter Dharani comes back to India after finishing her graduation. And Ravi studies engineering and does the job of paperboy to survive. And one fine day, Ravi chances upon Dharani and she swept him off his feet. However, it’s the financial stature that causes Ravi to not chase a dream which is not possible. However, as friendship brews between Dharani and Ravi, the former falls for him. But one mistake of Dharani makes Ravi to go away from her and leave the city also. Wil the two meet up and will her father accept their relationship forms the crux of the plot.


The newcomers Santosh Shoban, Riya Suman, and Tanya Hope played their part well. One can’t expect a huge from the new faces but they did a decent job.  But it was Posani Krishna Murali, who nailed his part as usual. Vidyullekha Raman played her part well in the minimal role.


With movies like Pelli Choopulu, Arjun Reddy and Ee Nagaranki Emayidi to name a few have taken the Tollywood to a new zone,  Jaya Shankar’s Paper Boy has nothing new to offer. The plot line is predictable and what happens in the proceeding also is a routine tale. The music by Bheems and Soundar’s DOP help the narration but nothing makes them best if the plotline is weak.
