Producer: Parachuri Prasad
Director: Boyapati Srinu
Music Director : Chakri

Simha is a complete one man show.Nandamuri Balakrishna strikes again with roaring performence.The second half of the movie will be a block buster.The dialogues in the second half of the movie are at the peak.

Rating : 3.75/5

Boyapati Sreenu triumphs once again. He gives starving fans a reasonably good movie ‘Simha’ starring Balakrishna in dual role. Though Simha cannot be termed as an extraordinary film what makes it a decent watch is that the director enagages the audience with his content and reels them without any suspension of disbelief. He had simply learnt from the mistakes from the previous directors, cut out the bombastic and over the top dialogues and gave a simplistic, linear story that a normal moviegoer could understand. In other words he made an ordinary formula film keeping all elements in control. He had not concentrated on spending heavily on songs, settings, multiple characters but relied more on keeping the action quotient high while retaining the human element of the story.

The screenplay is taut but the film is not without flaws. The film moves slowly initially and again the latter half, during the homam scenes stretches quite a bit. The romance between the ladies Namitha, Sneha Ullal, Nayanatara hasn’t been handled well and Balakrishna’s awkwardness was visible. Despite some tasteless comedy the film blends action and drama well and the best part of the film is that there is nothing loud from either the villain or the hero which is quite unexpected.

Namitha is obscenely obese and you could see layers of fat jutting out from every part of her body, her clothes made her look worse. It’s baffling to see fifty plus heroes romancing girls half their age but if this is want people want to see then no complaints. About Balakrishna, he performs admirably, does a competent job, he stands out in the dying scene with Nayanatara. The lady who played Balakrishna’s grandma looks out of place, a clear misfit. A local talent could have worked better.

Nayanatara looks outlandish in her costumes, has little to do and gives silent support to her onscreen husband. Sneha Ullal looks bloated but chips in what is required of her. A few numbers are good to listen but a few are wrongly placed in the film. Brahmanandam, Jhansi are a sheer waste. Venu Madhav is okay, feels good to see him after a long time. He is a professor in the college and is angling for Namitha, his dialogues bring in mild laughs.

And the story, it is about a college professor Srimannarayana (Balakrishna) whose student, lady love Sneha Ulall is having a difficult time letting go off her past. Her brother’s killer is her groom and he’s stalking her after she flees from home on the wedding day. A series of events unfold and in a flashback episode it is revealed that the killer and his father’s enemity is not just with Sneha Ullal but Balakrishna too.

Simha is not an enriching, soul stirring, emotionally resonant film but it is definitely a good offering, a jumbo mix of action and little drama for holiday movie going crowd.

Housefull 2010@movie review

After a long painful drought (thanks to the exam season and IPL matches) of plain boring to irritating films arrives Sajid Khan’s Housefull. While in totality it does fall short of being the big great summer entertainer that it is been claiming to be, it however manages to bring many laughs for you. However, eventually it settles down in familiar territory.

narrates the tale of Aarush (Akshay), a perpetually unlucky bloke and a loser in life who moves into the house of his best buddy cum another loser, Bob (Ritesh) and his wife Hetal (Lara). But things continue to go wrong for Aarush. Convinced that true love can fade away his bad luck jinx, a desperate Aarush enters into many complicated situations while seeking it. Thus enter Sandy (Deepika) and Devika (Jiah) in his life. Things complicate further with the arrival of Sandy’s angry brother Major Krishna Rao (Arjun Rampal) and Hetal’s estranged dad Batuk Patel (Boman Irani). How Aarush and Bob in an attempt to hoodwink Krishna Rao and Batuk go on creating more confusion leading to a mirthful chaos forms the rest of the plot.

Much was expected from Sajid Khan who has been literally claiming from rooftops for weeks now that he has made the year’s biggest blockbuster. Though he has not entirely let us down, you do wish he could have opted for a more innovative plot. The second half ends up being more of an Anees Bazmee film what with characters trying to hide identities and going on a lying spree. Sajid Khan also seems to have taken the slap stick humour bit quiet seriously what with so many slaps happening within the film. A ‘slapathon’ sequence reminding of his Heyy Babyy takes place too. The film loses its tempo with the introduction of Jiah’s character. But thankfully gets it back right in the second half where Akshay and Ritesh’s histrionics to hide the truth from Arjun Rampal and Boman Irani.

To give Sajid due credit, he has created many rip roaringly funny situations that are further elevated by his actors. Amongst the most hilarious sequences are most of the scenes featuring Akshay and Ritesh together. They share terrific chemistry. The climax set in the Queen of England’s Buckingham Palace is a laugh riot (literally). The film is high on glamour quotient what with three attractive bodied heroines (Deepika, Lara and Jiah) parading in skimpy outfits most of the time.

Akshay Kumar is back in terrific form, evoking huge laughter with his poker faced humour. Ritesh Deshmukh is another great comic talent who often gets his timing right. Arjun Rampal suits the part and looks dapper. While Deepika looks sizzling hot, Lara manages to score over her in the comedy department. Jiah tries hard and ends up being just about passable. Boman Irani goes over the top as usual. Making a come back on screen after a long gap, Randhir Kapoor playing Jiah’s Sindhi dad doesn’t get much scope. Chunky Pandey is plain irritating playing Akhiri Pasta an Italian hotelier. His fake Italiano accent grates on your nerves.

Director: Sajid Khan
