Director: KS Ravikumar

Producer: C. Kalyan

Release date: 12th January 2018



Balakrishna who is known for delivering blockbusters for Sankranthi is trying his luck for this festival for the past few years. After delivering a blockbuster with ‘Gautamiputra Satakarni’ for last Sankranthi, Balakrishna is trying his luck once again with ‘Jai Simha’ this year. Let’s see if Balakrishna can continue his success spree or not.






Narasimha (Balakrishna) is a good-samaritan who can’t withstand injustice around him. His irresistible violent streak which is running in his blood causes him lose his love of life Gauri (Nayantara). Will Narasimha change for his love and will they ever unite forms the rest of the story.




The first of the movie is specially designed for the ardent fans of Balakrishna with all the ‘fan’ moments and usual Balakrishna mark style. On the flip side, the movie’s pace slows down a bit in the second half. The last 25 minutes remind of the typical KS Ravikumar’s style of sacrifices which tests your patience.






On the whole, ‘Jaisimha’ is a tried and tested tale with the typical 90s storyline, but far better movie than most of Balakrishna’s movies in the recent times. The film may be loved by the masses and hardcore fans of Balakrishna. It may not appeal to the multiplex audiences.
