Nandamuri Balakrishna’s Veera Simha Reddy released amid high expectations but managed to garner only below-par reports because of its beaten-to-death storyline, outdated narration and alarming display of violence.
While the pride of Telugu cinema is flying high with films like Baahubali and RRR setting new benchmarks on the global stage, movies like Veera Simha Reddy are an apology as they will retrograde the legacy to some decades. This is what many of the moviegoers felt after watching Veera Simha Reddy which is nothing but a foolish and mindless attempt by a star hero and a reliable director who seem to have taken audiences for granted to deliver a ridiculous masala entertainer.
Waltair Veerayya Review : Punakalu buffering…
Veera Simha Reddy is an age-old commercial story. This film wouldn’t click even if it released two decades ago. What is more shocking is that Balakrishna and his team projected it as an epic during the promotions. The unlimited bloodshed, cuss words, needless dialogues and heavy-duty action scenes will send the viewers into deep mental agony as this is not the first time they are subjected to such traumatic experience of watching an outdated commercial entertainer.
It is high time Balakrishna comes out of his imaginary world. He should stop thinking that his fans, if not all sections of audiences, will lap up all silly movies he offers. He should come out of this hallucination. It is quite baffling that he is still trying to attempt that moth-eaten subjects revolving around Rayalaseema factionalism and using references to tigers and lions in titles.
Veera Simha Reddy Review : Out-and-out Balakrishna film
He should stop relying on senseless dialogues, absurd sentiment scenes and over-the-top action blocks. He should also realise that donning traditional avatars and wielding heavy weapons will not serve the purpose as long as he dabbles with such archaic scripts. These elements are no longer the selling points for commercial films.
