During the climax scene, when Badri jumps to save Alakananda, he's barefoot, but in the very next frame, when he catches the axes in his hand, we can see shoes in his legs.

Contradiction : The shoes might have been lying outside the temple and upon landing on ground, the shoes might have gone easily into his legs where they were kept. See more »

Poor man's Magadheera
10 April 2013 | by (Middle Earth) – See all my reviews

The writing on the wall is clear: the mega success & ringing cash- registers of "Magadheera" has prompted the makers to attempt "Badarinath". Sadly none in the production team cared less to deliver a good Chandamama story. Everyone seems to be blinded by the glitter and gloss of the production values that results in a soulless pot boiler called "Badrinath".

Allu Aravind has put in lots of effort especially in the action sequences. Sadly he should have concentrated on his performance too.

Tamanna plays as usual the glam-doll, a stereo type character she prefers.

Prakash Raj is loud.

Kelly Dorjee & Ashwini Kalsekar are passable.

The plot opens up with lots of promise but sadly loses it steam as it chugs along and passes through the predictable path offering nothing new to the audience in terms of novelty.

"Magadheera" was a game-changer. It awakened the mythological sentiments which was lying dormant in the Telugu audience. And certainly the credit goes to the unstinted effort poured by Rajamouli. V V Vinayak clearly has a long way to go before he can make a mark for himself.
