Jai Simha Review & Rating

|

Nandamuri Balakrishna is known for delivering super hits for Sankranthi season and he has scored some of his career biggest hits like Narasimha Naidu, Gautamiputra Satakarni etc during this season. This time he has come up with Jai Simha which is touted to be a commercial entertainer with lots of action scenes and powerful dialogues. The movie marks the 3rd collaboration of Balakrishna with Nayantara who appeared in films like Simha and Sri Rama Rajyam. Balakrishna is in top form these days with back to back films and doing different roles like Satakarni and Theda Singh. With Jai Simha, he seems to be back to his comfort zone of mass roles where he will be trashing goons and uttering powerful punch dialogues. The trailers hinted that Jai Simha is going to be a treat for his fans and the mass audience. Will Jai Simha reach the expectations they have? Let's find out in our Jai Simha review below:

Balakrishna is introduced as Narasimha who moves to Kumbakonam and starts working as a driver. But he faces some issues from a corrupt local cop. The story picks up when Gauri (played by Nayantara) is introduced. How is Gauri related to Narasimha, what is his motive behind moving to Kumbakonam forms the rest of the story.

The biggest positive factor about Jai Simha is Balakrishna. His energy levels are superb and his dance moves in the song Amma Kutty are a treat to watch for his fans and the mass audience. He is the show stealer in this flick as he manages to hold the film together with his powerful performance. As one expects from a Balakrishna's movie, there are dozens of punch dialogues and heavy duty action sequences. Apart from action and dance sequences, Balayya does a great job in sentimental scenes as well. His performance during the climax proves why he is one of the top actors of Tollywood. Nayantara gets a good role and she performs her role superbly. As always, her chemistry with Balakrishna is superb. Brahmanandam gets good screen time during the first half of the film and his comedy scenes work well. Prakash Raj, Murali Mohan, and other supporting cast were okay.

Music by Chiranthan Bhatt is decent but his background score elevated the film to an extent. Production values by C Kalyan and team are mediocre and so was the editing by Praveen Anthony. Ram Prasad, the cinematographer of the film manages to capture the beautiful locales of Dubai brilliantly. Coming to KS Ravikumar he chooses an age-old story and tries to churn out a commercial entertainer using the strengths of Balakrishna. He fails miserably for the most part of the film. He has dealt some scenes like the Temple scene, climax etc. brilliantly but fails to add many such moments in the film. Rather he chooses lame comedy scenes and unnecessary fight sequences which work against the film.

The first half of the film moves at a decent pace with some really cool dance moves from Balakrishna and a few comedy scenes featuring Brahmanandam. The temple scene and interval scene are shot perfectly and are sure to impress the masses. Right after the interval, the pace drops as the KS Ravikumar fails to generate any interest among the viewers. But the climax has been dealt superbly with some good performance from Balakrishna. The emotional aspect in the climax will surely connect to the family audience.

Verdict: Routine Commercial Entertainer With Good Performance From Balakrishna.
