What is bad:
The film is low on soul. I think Rajamouli’s intense characterization of Kalabhairavi, was a trifle too heavy for an actor who is just 1-film old. Ram Charan sure has done a good job. But good was not sufficient, you need great emotional intensity here and this is something that perhaps comes with celluloid experience. One can’t blame Charan for not having that. So the physical swagger of Kalabhairava overwhelms and swallows the films tender moments, which to begin with are minimal. That is the only reason why this film will not create as many records as the other reincarnation super hit released early this year. Shyam’s Arundhati had valour and vulnerability in equal measure. Rajamouli’s Kalabhairava has swagger to spare, but when it comes to soul his cupboard is bare!
Watch it in the majesty of the full-screen. Trust me, it is a visual feast and money and time well spent.
The real Magadheera is Geetha Arts. If Allu Arvind can do so much, why can’t his good money find a great script writer. I am sure he will. Till then lets enjoy this.
