Jai Simha stars Balakrishna and Nayanthara in the lead roles. Hari Priya, Natasha Doshi as other actresses. Other cast includes Jagapathi Babu, Ashutosh Rana and Prabhakar.
Jai Simha is written and directed by KS Ravikumar under C Kalyan banner. Chiranthan Bhatt has composed music for the film. Ram Prasad handled Camera.
PlotNarasimha is a bold and sociopath who moves to Kumbakonam along with his new born son and settles there as a driver. What happens when he locks horns with local goons and a corrupt cop ? what leads to reveal his falsh back and what is it ? is the major plot of the film.
Pongal is Balakrishna's most successful season. Last year he came up with GPSK and shook the box office. This time he came up with his lucky charm title Jai Simha in which Balayya played a gutsy driver. He delivered some threatening lines in his roaring style as usual but could have avoided dance moves for a while. Nayanthara's role is mysterious and she performed well. Hari Priya and Natasha roles didn't have much importance. Ashutosh Rana and Prabhakar did well as baddies.
K.s Ravi Kumar suddenly made a commercial entertainer with Balakrishna but we don't know why he picked this kind of subject and Balayya at this time. He could have watched Balayya's earlier films to avoid the monotony. Chirantan Bhatt's background music is good and few songs are okay.
Another Commercial Kick from Balayya.
