Balakrishna's action in Lion
Balakrishna's action in Lion

The highly-awaited theatrical trailer of Balakrishna's upcoming movie "Lion" has finally been unleashed on the internet. The 1.12 minute video shows that the film is going to be a treat for Nandamuri fans.

Written and directed by debutante Satyadeva, "Lion" is an action entertainer with all commercial ingredients. The trailer shows that the movie has a simple and routine story. Balayya impresses fans with punch dialogue delivery.

The theatrical trailer of "Lion" shows that the movie is high on action quotient. The video opens with an action scene featuring Balakrishna and also offers a glimpse of seven stylishly-choreographed action and car chase scenes in the movie.

Nandamuri Balakrishna has played two different roles --  Godse and Bose. One of the two roles is that of a CBI officer and the video shows that Balayya is sure to rock in this getup. As per the trailer, Radhika Apte will also appear as a CBI officer, while Trisha Krishnan ups the glamour quotient of the film. The video offers a glimpse into the roles played by Prakash Raj, Jayasudha, MS Narayana, Ali and others.

As per the video of "Lion", MS Narayana and Ali look set to tickle the funny bones of the viewers. Mani Sharma's background score and Venkata Prasad's cinematography are going to be among the main highlights of the film. However, the trailer hardly offers any hint at the scenes of Balakrishna's romance with either Trisha or Radhika, which might disappoint some sections of the audience.

"Lion" is one of the big-ticket Telugu movies of 2015. Rudrapati Ramana Rao has produced it under the banner Sri Lakshmi Venkateswara Cinema. The trailer shows that the movie has rich production values. The exotic locales and beautiful art direction will be among the big assets of the film.

The soundtracks of "Lion", which were released on 9 April 2015, have impressed music lovers. With the film slated to hit the screens on 7 May, the question is whether Balakrishna will win heart once again after "Legend".
