After watching a series of realistic malayalam movies like Kaiyyoppu, Vaasthavam, Thalappavu and Unaroo, they got me emotionally drained. So I wanted to watch some fantasy entertainer. Unfortunately there is no worthwhile release in Tamil right now so I digged into my archives and realised that I had a fairly good print of Ram Charan Teja's "Magadheera (2009)". Not knowing Telugu completely is never a barrier at all to watch this visually spectacular movie. Definitely Ramcharan Teja is a star material who looks great with toned body, dances and fights effortlessly and in flashback sequence his eyes express the raw sexuality but he lacks in the emoting department. Kaajal Agarwal is a surprise package of the movie with a wonderful smile and oozing the sensuality in the previous birth scenes. The main characters are kept minimum with ample support from Srihari and Dev Gill. Since the basic plot itself has no logic, let us better not get into the logic of the scenes. However the scenes of Ram slaying 100 warriors befofre his death and the action scenes of the flashback keeps you spellbound that you forget to think about the logic. Take a look at the "making of the graphic scenes" which will give you an idea about the hard work that had gone into this movie.

VFX scene 1

I, having a keen eye for camera work, graphics and visuals, enjoyed this movie very much that I had watched the movie almost twice. Even with the screenplay wise it never slackens a bit. The locations of Bhuj (Gujarat) with pristine white sands and the high production values make this movie a visual treat. The VFX is very much in par with the foreign movies and even if I may sound exaggarated - it reminded me a lot of Gladiator. The camera by Senthil, who had handled the another graphical extravaganza "Arundhathi" and the VFX team headed by Kamalakannan had done an outstanding job.

VFX Scene 2

It is of no wonder that this had become the first South Indian movie to gross more than Rs. 100 crores worldwide in a single language. The Telugu producer Allu Aravind had roped in Hrithik Roshan for its Hindi remake, who is a good choice for this role. I will definitely watch this movie again and looking forward for the official DVD release.

Songs

Chiranjeevi pops up for a couple of minutes to share the screen with his son Ram in the remix version of his old hit "Bangaru Koti Petta.." from Gharana Mogudu (remake of Rajnikanth's "Mannan").... Disco Shanti is replaced by sexy Mumaith Khan in the new version. Ram Charan had not only inherited the dancing capabilities of his father but also his voice. If you close the eyes you feel like Chiranjeevi rendering the dialogues. The song "Panchadhara Bomma" shot in Golgonda is very special in a way.

Bhairava killing 100 soldiers before getting himself killed. An amazing scene that will give goose bumps no matter how many times you watch.
