Simha is a huge blockbuster featuring Balakrishna in two different roles directed by Boyapati Sreenu. The film was a huge comeback for Balakrishna after a series of flops and he delivered par excellence.
Srimannarayana (Balakrishna) is a strict and powerful lecturer of a college and lives with his grandmother (K.R.Vijaya). He frequently questions the injustice and teaches wrong doers a good lesson. He once involves in a fight which leads to comeback from coma for a person named Veerakesavudu (Sai Kumar) Maheshwari (Namitha) is a fellow lecturer who falls for him but the latter doesn’t respond. In the mean time a new student Janaki (Sneha Ullal) joins the college and though she finds Srimannarayana too aggressive initially, she admires and falls in love with his fearless attitude. He also rescues her from a group of goons and it is when she reveals her past to him. Janaki’s father Jagadish Prasad (Rahman) has business rivalry with a Gangster Gopi (Aditya Menon). As a result Janaki lands in marriage trouble and listening to all this Srimannarayana assures her he would protect her from danger. In quite dramatic sequences, Srimannarayana discovers his own past about his parents who lived in Bobbili 30 years ago. Veerakesavudu is a dangerous man who creates trouble for local folks and Narasimha (Balakrishna)- is the only person who fights over the injustice. Narasimha is a doctor by profession and is father of Srimannarayana. His wife Gayathri (Nayanatara) is supportive of his deeds and stays as an ideal partner. In a dramatic sequence,Veerakesavudu brutally kills Narasimha and his wife and rest of the story is about how Srimannarayana avenges the death of his parents and get back glory to Bobbili.
Balakrishna is good as the lecturer but his real talent was well explored as Narasimha- the determined doctor who wants to do good to the village. His punch dialogues, body language worked tremendously well in the film. K.R.Vijaya played a memorable role of mother to Narasimha and grandmother to Srimannarayana. Sneha Ullal is adequate as the female lead. Nayanatara gets a good role in the flashback mode with great costumes and attire. Sai Kumar delivers par excellence and Tamil character actor Rahman does a great job too. Namitha gets a vamp style role and sizzles in the title song along with Balakrishna.
The film has been written by director Boyapati Sreenu himself which doesn’t fall short of pace at any point of time. Music by Chakri is decent with good blend of commercial aspects and melody. Simhamanti Chinnode became commercial hit and Bangaru Konda was a great melodious number. Direction by Boyapati Sreenu is well made keeping Balakrishna’s strengths in mind.
