Storyline

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

Brilliant and worth watching more than once. !
6 August 2009 | by (NY) – See all my reviews

Sometimes you feel you should be the first one to review a movie so to share and enjoy the applause that it gets later on. Magadheera is just of that kind. I was amazed and thrilled by the way the movie starts over that deep valley. Some say the movie lets you down in the next half an hour but I suspect that was a ploy by the director. Reason simple, if it was the other way, it would have ended up being an overdose. A mediocre 30-40 minutes with an undercurrent indication to the flash back opened up doors to what is undoubtedly the best achievement in Telugu cinema in movies of this Genre.

Awesome is what I had in my mind leaving to the interval break. Rarely does one feel the break time in Indian cinema is not needed and this happens to be one such occasion. Second half started the roller-coaster ride. You see all the effort that the technicians had put in the movie. While songs are not at their best while listening, they were much better on picture. Dheera Dhreera song should be one of the best pictured songs in Telugu cinema. Charan has a long way to go but there are a few areas where he needs to work out a lot. But well.. for someone in his very second movie, he seems to had put extraordinary effort for this outcome. A pat on back for Rajamouli too.

Some scenes of the movie will haunt you for a long time. The starting scene and the scene where the horse (Badshah) comes back to rescue Charan. The horse chase sequences leading to scene are also superbly pictured. In spite of some obvious logical errors, I felt utterly satisfied for a Telugu movie after a long time. Hard work pays off.

PS: Rarely (sad but true! ) we'll get chance to take our non-Telugu colleagues to a Telugu movie and feel proud. Make the most of it with Magadheera. Let all know that our industry can make the best of the best.
