Jai Simha Movie Review

Review: Balayya is seen in an intense and massy avatar and his chemistry with Nayantara is quite good.

The out-of-form director has chosen a script that is as old as his “Muthu” (Rajinikanth starrer). Not only is the story old, the screenplay is also outdated in the movie.

There are many twists in this story but they have forced ones and the overdose of sentiment and thyagam (sacrifice) are packaged in a way that makes us wonder whether the makers are still stuck in the ’70s and ‘ 80s year.

Plus Points:

  • Nandamuri Bala Krishna
  • Amma Kutty song
  • Few action sequences


  • Pale comedy scenes

Verdict: The added advantage of the film is the emotional angle during the climax. The film is clearly aimed at the masses and will do well with all Balakrishna fans. If you are the one who does not mind the regular commercial narration, this film ends up as a one time watch this festival season Sankrantri.

Jai Simha Movie Rating: 2.75/5
