Pre-Release Teaser of 'Jai Simha': A Review

Monday, January 8, 2018 • Telugu Comments

The Pre-Release Trailer of 'Jai Simha' is out.  In a sense, it's better than the first Trailer released a few days back.

Some of the dialogues are politically loaded.  "Indrudu, Chandrudu waste anna.  You are the No. 1 for the people...  You are a cyclist," says Shivaji Raja's character to Balayya.  You know what all it must be meaning.

Since he is weak in 'love matters', our petrified-about-romance hero has falls in love with Nayanthara's character after initial hiccups.  Then there comes Hari Priya, who plays a timid girl as against Nayanthara's assertive babe.

As Balakrishna's heroism goes, the last dialogue takes the cake: 'Mounanga badhalni baristha.. Moorkhanga pranalni theesestha'.  Dialogues are by M Ratnam, by the way.

Brahmanandam has several warnings to give Balayya in a comic track.

Above all, the impression is that 'Jai Simha' is more a family story than a mass masala actioner.

Directed by KS Ravikumar, it has music by Chirantan Bhatt.  The film releases worldwide on January 12.
