Legend opens with the introduction of villain Jitendra played by Jagapathi Babu. Then it heads to Dubai, where the character of Balakrishna is introduced through a SUV chase scene in a desert. The director manages to engage the viewers with some action, comedy, romantic, family drama and songs sequences and punch dialogues in the first half of the movie. With an emotionally-charged interval, Legend picks up the speed. Some political-charged punch dialogues, fights between Balakrishna and Jagapathi Babu and a few sentimental scenes keep you glued to the screen in the second half. Climax is also good, but predictable. The format of the film is somewhat similar to Simha. The film lacks freshness in treatment of subject.

Now the movie shifts to Dubai……The film has taken a sad turn. Suman has come into the film as a village head. …..Balakrishna has just been introduced in a powerful way in Dubai. Desert SUV chase scene is wonderful…..Sonal Chauhan has been introduced in a very stunning manner. Time for the 'Time Bomb' song.

Now it is time for the entry of other (second) Balakrishna to enter….leqads for interval…first half will surely entertain fans...
