Continuing with the trend of dubbing Malayalam films in Telugu, yet another film which has now been released is the Mohan Lal starrer Black Money. Mohanlal who is dearly called as Lalettan or the complete actor came into Telugu and become a known face with NTR starrer Janatha Garage and his own direct Telugu film Manamantha.
Venu (Mohanlal) is a renowned journalist and cameraman working with a news channel. Even though he graduated from a film institute, he likes to shoot visuals for news than some movies and ge goes by his passion and creates some name for himself. He is given an operation where he need to shoot visuals of a politician and his wrong doings in which he comes across Renuka (Amala Paul), his partner in the operation.
On the whole, Black Money is one film which has a very interesting premise. The cat and mouse game of television channels and breezy first half are good assets. But the second half is a bit wayward and spoils the interesting proceedings. All those who like investigative thrillers and do not mind the serious nature of the film, can give this film a shot. Rest can watch it when it is aired on TV.
Run baby run which was a super hit in malayalam which was released almost 5 years back is not relevant to Telugu and it’s just released in Telugu to encash Mohanlal’s familiar face and demonetisation with a tag anni kotha notle. If not for Mohanlal, this movie couldn’t have released in Telugu and it really disappoints if someone expects a nice time watching it. To sum up, Black money is a passable movie and can be watched in YouTube or tv when aired.
