After the gorgeous success of “Akhanda” and the recognition of speak present “Unstoppable” introduced new craze to Balakrishna’s motion pictures. And teaming up with director Gopichand Malineni, who simply delivered the blockbuster “Krack”, raised excessive expectations. “Veera Simha Reddy” can be the primary biggie to hit the theaters in 2023. Amidst excessive expectations, the movie is right here.
Let’s discover out its deserves and demerits.
For his or her son’s upcoming wedding ceremony in Turkey, Meenakshi (Honey Rose) has invited Veera Simha Reddy (Nandamuri Balakrishna), who at present resides in Rayalaseema, India. Their son Jai (Balakrishna) is in love with Eesha (Shruti Haasan). Why does Veera Simha Reddy reside in India and Meenakshi and her son in Turkey?
Meenakshi begins to elucidate the circumstances that introduced them to Turkey a few years in the past.
An amiable faction chief named Veera Simha Reddy wields essentially the most affect in Kurnool. His step-sister Bhanumathi (Varalakshmi Sarath Kumar) is his one and solely susceptible level.
Bhanumathi misunderstands her brother’s actions in an important scenario and involves the conclusion that he has betrayed her. Livid at her brother, she marries Veera Simha Reddy’s rival Pratap Reddy (Duniya Vijay) and units out to actual her revenge. What precipitated the sibling rift, and what is going to Jai do after listening to his dad’s backstory?
Nandamuri Balakrishna has portrayed two distinct characters. Veera Simha Reddy’s portrayal brings to thoughts his earlier movie roles. Balakrishna’s dialogue supply is, as at all times, fierce. Within the first half, his costume is a rip-off of Sivanna’s “Mufti.” That stated, he seems terrific in it.
After Balakrishna, Varalakshmi Sarath Kumar performs a pivotal position within the movie. Throughout the interval bang, she does an admirable job. Her sentiment scenes, nonetheless, fall flat.
Shruti Haasan will get a foul remedy. Her position and her efficiency are each embarrassingly unhealthy.
Honey Rose is given a barely higher position than Shruti Haasan. In his first Telugu movie, Duniya Vijay performs a one-dimensional unhealthy man.
The music of Thaman is unremarkable. The songs could have gone viral on social media, however they do not work in any respect within the film. However his background rating is sweet, in order that’s a plus. This movie’s cinematography is gorgeous. The manufacturing values are very excessive as a result of the producers have invested some huge cash.
Sai Madhav’s dialogues comply with a predictable sample. Phrases like “Kodaka” and “Naa Kodaka” will be heard at many locations. The size of the movie is just too lengthy. It options 8 prolonged combat sequences
The primary half
Some mass moments
Extreme motion episodes
Cringe worthy heroine characterisation
Regardless of being a formulaic actioner, the religious undertones of “Akhanda” helped it succeed on the field workplace. Balayya’s efficiency as Akhanda resonated with a large viewers thanks largely to the movie’s “Bhakti” angle. The movie’s success was apparently considered in a distinct mild by director Gopichand Malineni. His newest movie, “Veera Simha Reddy,” starring Balakrishna, follows the template of heavy dose of motion sequences.
The variety of fights may be very excessive. There are certainly eight large-scale motion scenes.
Although the movie’s first fifteen minutes are boring as a result of introduction of Jai and Eesha and their budding romance, issues choose up as soon as “Veera Simha Reddy” arrives.
Balakrishna, in typical style, roars by means of the primary half, delivering punch strains and beating up unhealthy guys. Some dialogues are designed to achieve political traction. Balakrishna takes goal on the present authorities in Andhra Pradesh in a scene the place the hero has an argument with the minister of dwelling affairs.
The primary half of the movie, nonetheless, is structured equally to different commercially profitable movies, full with songs and combat scenes. The twist involving Balakrisha and Varalakshmi on the midpoint bang can be attention-grabbing. The twist makes us watch for the second half. Nonetheless, the second half fully loses its grip. A sister-brother drama ensues, and extra fights comply with.
Every thing involving Balakrishna and Varalaxmi Sarath Kumar appears to go on ceaselessly. On high of that, there are far too many loopholes. It is hilarious to see Varalaxmi misunderstand his brother and swear vengeance with out bothering to unravel the scenario. One other cringe-worthy second is when she married her brother’s rival. It seems to be a narrative comfort relatively than natural. And Duniya Vijay’s villainy lacks effectiveness as a result of poor writing. So, the second half seems to be a mix of action-stunts fest and poor sentiment scenes.
The politically charged strains of dialogue could win over supporters of the Telugu Desam social gathering and Balayya’s followers, however they arrive off sounding synthetic and misplaced to everybody else. And for the way for much longer will Balakrishna brag about his dad and his ‘charitra’ (historical past) with out regard to the story’s arc?
How did the censors let scenes like Balakrishna calling the unhealthy man “Munda” by means of? Burra Sai Madhav’s banal prose stuffed with phrases like “Kodaka” ought to have been censored.
The heroines’ portrayals are simply as unhealthy because the pointless combating. After the primary quarter-hour, Shruti Haasan solely re-appears when there are musical interludes. Honey Rose is revealed to be an aged mom, however she is then given the chance to bounce to the “Maa Baava Manobhavalu ” track and seduce Balayya.
General, “Veera Simha Reddy” is one other senseless masala drama with numerous fights. Whereas the primary half of the movie is entertaining, the second half is disastrous. The movie is just for die-hard followers of Balayya, not for the common audiences.
