Narasimha(Balakrishna) moves to Kumbakonamwith his infant son from Vizag. He gets a driver’s job in a rich man’s (Murali Mohan) house. and starts working as a driver. There, he comes across a corrupt cop and keeps fighting with him time and again. During one of the key problems involving the cop, Narasimha suddenly comes across his wife Gauri(Nayanthara) who is none other than his ex-girlfriend.One day, Gowri runs away from her home to get married to Narasimha only to find that he just got married to his co-worker Manga (Haripriya). Music by Chirantan Bhatt is decent as all the songs sound good on screen. But the background score could have been a bit better during the crunch elevation scenes. The camerawork is okay and showcases the Kumbakonam region well. Dialogues written for Balayya are quite massy and will appeal to the front benchers. Why did Narasimha take this decision? Who is this Narasimha? What is his backstory with Gauri? Why did he come to Kumbakonam? To know the answers, you need to watch the film on the big screen.
Jai Simha is a typical mass masala entertainer. The advantage of the film is the emotional during the climax.. But the roller coaster effect of the film can get to the regular audience at times. If you are the one who does not mind the regular commercial narration, this film ends up as a one time watch.
Director Ravi Kumar has done just an okay job with the film, he has presented Balakrishna quite well, The way he adds unnecessary commercial elements and sidetracks the film deviates.
