Puri Jagannath takes inspiration form foreign language films once in a while. Even his Industry Hit ‘Pokiri’ was loosely based on Leonardo DiCaprio ‘The Departed’.
Soon after the launch of Balayya’s 101st under the direction of Puri Jagannath, Speculations began doing rounds that the subject is inspired from Hollywood flick ‘John Wick’.
‘John Wick’ is an American action-thriller which shows a former Hitman cuts short his retirement to settle scores with deadly gangsters who ruined his life. The original stars Keanu Reeves in the lead role.
The characterization of Balakrishna in his 101st will be close to that of Keanu Reeves in ‘John Wick’. How well Puri adapts this Hollywood Flick to suit the Telugu Nativity is going to be the key here!
Most of the shoot of #Balayya101 happens in abroad. Puri Connects is hiring debutants for all the key roles in the movie.
