Critics Reviews Audience Reviews

Director Boyapati Sreenu, who had given two action films with a sentiment touch like Tulasi and Bhadra has once again tried his hand on action-packed drama with Balakrishna as hero. No doubt, the Simha is better than the recent duds of Balayya, and at the same time the film has nothing new in the subject but a complete beaten track. The director has made use of all the cinematic liberties in running the story with the hero and in the flashback his father, hacking as many as some 400 to 500 people either with a punch / sword or a hunting sickle.

Srimannarayana (Balakrishna) is a professor in a college. He doesn’t allow injustice before his eyes. Janaki (Sneha Ullal) joins the college. Once some goons try to abduct her but Srimannarayana saves her. She falls in love with him in no time. Incidentally, Janaki is none other than his sister-in-law and on one occasion, Srimannarayana comes to know from his granny (KR Vijaya) that he belongs to the Bobbili clan.

His father Dr Narasimha (Balakrishna) is a saviour of poor. He could perform surgery to save life and he could also hack people if they do wrong. Unfortunately, two sons of a local mafia leader Veerakesavudu (Aditya Menon) die in the hands of Dr Narasimha for their excesses and in revenge Veerakesavudu kills both Dr Narasimha and his wife Savitri (Nayanatara). Before his death, Veerakesavudu tastes the punch of Dr Narasimha and goes into comma. Will he gain his consciousness ? Will Srimannarayana goes to village? Will he marry Janaki? What happens next will form the interesting part of the movie.
