New stories and newer narratives arrive by the day but nothing works like a well packaged, good old mass masala movie of a star in a festive season. With Jai Simha, K S Ravikumar does exactly that and gives a good contemporary action spin to an emotional story that taps Balakrishna, the actor and the star, in equal measure. He commands good directorial control and gives something for every kind of spectator to cheer about. He’s in reasonably good form for a role that he reprised earlier too — suspecting his wife’s equation with the hero. The second hour gives more space for Balakrishna and Nayanthara to provide laughs — their mature chemistry works.
