In 1609 AD, Mitravinda, a princess, and Kala Bhairava, the warrior that she loved, die. 400 years later, the warrior is reincarnated as Harsha, a motorcycle stuntman. He brushes hands with a girl and sparks fly as he begins to recall his past life. Knowing that he is destined to love this young woman, he sets about trying to identify her. Indu does not remember her past life and keeps Harsha at a distance; playing tricks on him until she gets to know him better. However, just as the two begin to fall in love, a sinister force from their shared past returns! Written by L. Hamre

Visual Treat. Total entertainer
1 August 2009 | by pavan-tirupatiSee all my reviews

When you are going to any S.S. Rajamouli movie..you always have a feeling that rarely he lets the audience down...right from Student no.1 to Chatrapthi to Simhadri or Yamadonga he always makes sure he provides a movie which hangs on to you for a while..well Magadheera is much more than that and arguably is best work by SS.Rajamouli so far..

Why do I say the previous line? The visuals,action sequences,romance,songs everything about this movie is really engaging and even the story though being simple makes you involve in it and during the scene where the hero dives down the mountain after the heroine..you feel your heart dropping too...and not just that scene but many others. Kajal is convincing as a bubbly girl who was a princess in her last birth..and it didn't feel that she was just a showpiece in the movie..Srihari had a brief but impacting roles of sher khan and Solomon..Chiru's guest appearance was kinda disappointing for me as I was hoping I would get to see him dance which didn't happen..but the person we definitely need to talk about here is Ram Charan the hero of the movie...Ram Charan has improved his acting by miles...compared to Chirutha..and has really proved that he can handle acting well...It seemed as if the role was written for him and no other actor would suit this role. the risky horse riding shots..the fight sequences...the sword fighting...everything was performed with ease by Ram Charan..

with good performances by the actors..and a visually stunning movie..and Rajamouli style of story telling...Magadheera would easily become one of the best movies of 2009 ..specially some sequences like fight sequence near Shiva statue...Udaygadh visual beauty...the sets used..the graphics...the concept...the opening scene..are first time ever in Telugu film industry...I give it 8/10 and its definitely worth a watch..
