Gopichandh Malineni’s Veera Simha reddy, which stars Honey Rose, Balakrishna and Shruti Haasan as action entertainers, has a lot of action. Our review says that the story has nothing to offer.
- Veera Simha Reddy made her debut in the theatres on January 12.
- Balakrishna has two roles in this film.
- Gopichandh Malineni is the director of the commercial entertainer.
Nandamuri Balakrishna returns with another double act, after his successful Akhanda. He treats his audience to Veera Simha, another commercial entertainer that reminds us of older films with similar stories. Is Veera Simha Reddy able to deliver enough meat for the audience? We find out!
Jai (Balakrishna), and his mother Meenakshi Honey Rose have a car dealership and a restaurant. Jai falls in love with Sandhya (Shruti Haisan), when he meets Sandhya. Jai is asked by Sandhya’s dad to bring his parents for the finalization of the wedding. He learns that Veera Simha (Balakrishna) is still alive. Things take a dramatic turn when Veera Simha reddy arrives in Turkey. The film continues to show Veera Simha and Honey Rose’s past, and why they aren’t together.
Veera Simha Reddy, directed by Gopichandh Malineni, is as formulaic and predictable as you can get. You get the same clichA(c),d moments if you have a brother-sister subject and a two-hero character. Veera Simha reddy has all of these moments and more, which makes it even more fun. Even though the roles in this film are very similar to his previous films, it’s still a joy to see Nandamuri Balakrishna dominate the screen.
They are plentiful in Veera Simha reddy, whether it is his outrageous action sequences or punch dialogues. Balakrishna strikes in an action scene and two men fall to the ground. These action scenes are fun and typical of Balayya films. Veera Simha’s portrayal of the role was well-crafted. Balakrishna portrayed both roles with great swag.
Veera Simha reddy has strong political dialogues which also brought cheer to the audience. Balayya is praising himself!
Veera Simha’s story is nothing new, however. We see the brother-sister feeling and how revenge cloud one’s judgment. The film, and its songs, show objectification of women as well as the male gaze. The odd pairing of Honey Rose and Jai (Balakrishna) is obvious. Rose’s makeup seemed to suggest that she is old enough to become a mother but it did not add any novelty.
Shruti Haasan could have played the role of Shruti Haasan. Comedy sequences, which are also known as comedy, have been around for as long as the hills. They did not generate any laughs. After the first half hour, her character disappears. Varalaxmi Sitaramumar plays a more substantial role as Veera Simha’s sister. She has a complete character arc and has tried her best to keep true to her role. Duniya Vijay, the antagonist, looked equally deadly. His role was not strong enough to defeat two Balakrishnas.
Veera Simha Reddy is a movie that reeks with clichA(c). Although most of the ideas work, the film’s lack of depth made it average.
