Director: S.S. Rajamouli
Cast : Ram Charan Teja, Kajal Aggarwal
Kalabhairava and Mithra love each other, but are killed unfortunately. They reincarnate as Harsha and Indu, and thus goes Magadheera..
WHY this movie? Action, Fantasy, and some comedy, all in one: perfect package! The amazing chemistry between the lead pair is what I loved the most. In fact, I wish I understood the language better!
WHEN? This movie is perfect for an evening with friends when you have nothing to do outside (Rain or Shine). Or if you are a person like one of us, who loves watching movies, then any time is perfect time for you, company or no company! Company is preferred for some unintentional comic relief by Chiranjeevi (Sorry, hard core fans!)
DO NOT use you brains! They are absolutely unwanted here, and might even be a spoiler! Don’t look for logic, and don’t even expect a great movie, this movie is a breeze, and just let it blow on you softly. There are certainly a lot of flaws in this movie, and the movie drags in the second half.
WATCH out for the great chemistry, as said earlier! Ram Teja and Kajal Agarwal are pretty good even by themselves! Its sad that Indian Cinema would be doomed without cruel villains who kill at will in broad daylight. Given the genre of this movie, we can grant the movie-makers one such guy, Raghuveer, who does a perfect job.
“Chepestunadu BHAIRAVAAA” screams the villain at the hero. This dialogue became an instant hit in my college hostel and also the movie, though no one actually knew Telugu. I just wish I knew Telugu 😦 . As Renu’s disclaimer about watching this movie, we all happened to watch it one evening when we had nothing else to do other than open our books and study.
Movies are for entertainment and this slick flick delivers that mission readily. So its our first monsoon recommendation. This movie has everything that any other masala film would have. Songs, death defying stunts, punch dialogues and what not. As Renu said it was a breeze.
The movie starts with the present era and further on draws lines with movies like ‘The Myth’ but its not that evident. The second half takes you back to an ancient civilization and here the real movie starts. There is much more clarity in this story than the story revolving in the present era. Telugu film industry seem to have a very strong visual effects team. They have beautifully recreated an ancient civilization. Stunt master Peter Haynes grants you some really superb stunts. These are the most involving parts in the second half.
I would like to differ with Renu about Kajal as I found her acting very stupid and amateurish. Ram Charan delivers some good substance.
WATCH out for the scene when Bhairava takes an Army of enemies. This scene had my hairs standing up. No its really too good.
Just forgive the movie for some plot holes and foolishness and I assure you Magadheera will surely enliven your dull and boring rainy evening.
