Simba” is a black comedy film scripted and directed by Arvind Sridhar. Bharath Srinivasan, Premgi Amaren, Bhanu Sri Mehra, Swathi Deekshith, “ Ramana” and Swetha Ashok are in the star cast. Vishal Chandrasekhar composed the music and Sinu Siddharth cranked the camera. Achu Vijayan edited the film. Magic Chair and Yasodha Films produced Simba. This is the first stoner comedy film in Tamil film industry.


Mahesh lives alone and this makes him a stoner. One day, when he had taken the drug, his neighbor Madhu carries her pet, a Great Dane, which she had named Simba and requests Mahesh to take care of it. As Mahesh had taken the drug, the Great Dane appears to him as a human. Mahesh bonds with Simba and how he impresses Madhu and make her love him, forms the rest of the plot.

Star Performance

Bharath has played his part well. Bhanu has nothing big to do. Premgi impresses the audiences with his facial expressions and body language. The rest of the cast did what is expected of them.


Being the first stoner comedy film in Tamil, the audiences get a new film watching experience. Arvind Sridhar, the director brings in front of the audiences, the stoner and how he hallucinates. Before imagining a dog as a human, we are shown with a proper example, how a person gets hallucinated. The production and the technical values are good.

What’s There?

  • A new genre to Kollywood
  • Performance of the stars

What’s Not There?

  • The screenplay should have been better
  • Some characters are not developed well


The film has both positives and the negatives. As it is the first of this kind, the film appears to attract the audiences. Although Simba is not a great film, it is definitely a one-time watch!
