Jai Simha Movie Review
No one except diehard fans of Balakrishna took Jai Simha seriously until Agnyaathavaasi bombed at the box office.
With Agnyathavasi failing miserably, focus is now shifted to Balakrishna’s mass masala Jai Simha directed by KS Ravi Kumar.
Nothing about the film has excited cinephiles, but we can never underestimate the mass power of Balakrishna.
When Mrugaraju and Narasimhanaidu clashed at the box office, not many believed Balakrishna’s film to conquer the throne and Chiranjeevi’s film to bite the dust.
Agnyaathavaasi stole all the limelight away from other Sankranthi films until its result was out. Can Balakrishna pull off a blockbuster like Narasimhanaidu with Jai Simha?
