‘Balagam’ is worth a watch for its honesty, humanistic outlook and celebration of family ties.
Great Andhra (Rating: 2.75/5):
Overall, “Balagam” is a grounded story told in an honest and earthy manner. With the exception of flaws such as repetitiveness and excessive runtime, the film is enjoyable to watch once we become acquainted with the setting and characters. It should not be seen in a regular commercial movie way.
Mirchi9 (Rating: 2.5/5):
Finally, Balagam is an honest attempt that is authentic to Telangana culture and the rural side. There are problems that make it very difficult to sit throughout the film. But if you manage to do that, you will get impressed with the essence and the final ending.
123TELUGU (Rating: 3/5):
On the whole, Balagam is a genuine attempt to explore human values and emotions that is devoid of any commercial ingredients. The film’s trump cards are the natural village atmosphere, heartwarming performances, and gratifying emotional sequences. As mentioned earlier, the film might not sit well with a section of the audience. Barring the slightly slow first half, this film can be watched on big screens this weekend.
Times Of India (Rating:3/5):
While there are many good things to say about the movie, it is not your regular commercial entertainer, and it might feel a little draggy in between, but if you connect to the native vibe, it will leave you satisfied. The film has excellent storytelling laced with the art and culture of rural Telangana, and it’s a simple and honest drama bringing out the essence of familial bonds and village life.
