For many years, it has become a mandatory thing that the Telugu audience get Sankranthi movie releases and Balakrishna has managed to give a big competition to the co-actors with his movies too. Jai Simha has hit the theaters as a Sankranthi movie and here is the full review.
Narasimha travels from Vishakhapatnam to Kumbhakonam along with a kid and settles there. He gets to work as a driver under a Temple president(Murali Mohan) there. He gets into a serious issue with an intention to save his boss' daughter(Natasha Doshi). In this frame of context, he is targeted by the police and also the local goons. The twist in the tale comes, when Gauri(Nayanatara) comes to Kumbhakonam in search of the child whom Narasimha is shown taking care of.
Roles and Performances:
Balakrishna's energy is unlimited. His dialogue delivery, dances, and fights are very enjoyable.
Nayanatara: She looks very beautiful. Balakrishna-Nayanatara chemistry works again. She has justified her role well.
All the other actors justified their roles well.
Balakrishna is an expert in the portrayal of family sentiments and this has been proved again. Though the movie starts on a weak note, the screenplay is interwoven. The narration gradually picks up with wit, action, and sentiment.
Nayanatara's entry is a proper twist. The first half goes well. The second half is mostly the flashback and appears lengthy. The chemistry between Nayanatara and Balakrishna works again.
Fans, Female audience, B&C center audiences will be very satisfied with the content. The dynamic dialogues, Balakrishna mark fights work well.
It is a killer-routine story but might draw the audience as it is the festival time.
Lavish making is a huge plus. Fights are taking well. Production values are visibly good. Songs are not that complementing. A story is a routine one.
