The story starts with a baby boy who is born and carried by a hand as shown in posters and he turns out to be the main character of the film, Shivudu (Prabhas) with super powers and exceptional skills as he grows up in a tribe. Shivudu accidentally meets Avantika(Tamannaah) and falls in love with her. As the story moves he comes to know about Devasena(Anushka) who is in the evil hands of Bhallala Deva, (Rana) the badass of the movie. Avantika wants to rescue Devasana and Shivudu wants to help his love and in this process he enters the kingdom of Mahishmathi. He feels some past connection with the people and the place and everyone gets a hope that he will save the kingdom from the evil hands of Bhallala Deva. Now why do people see a special character in Shivudu? Will he be able to save the kingdom? Will he save Devasena and win his love? forms the rest of the story.
Prabhas is apt for the dual role and has given his best performance and hats off to Rajamouli sir for extracting such a great performance from him. Rana, the hulk in this movie is perfect for his role and plays a very prominent role in this movie after prabhas. Tamannaah is georgeous and Anushka is impressive with her acting skills. Senior actors like Ramya krishna,Sathyaraj and Nassar handled their roles very well with great acting skills and all the characters in this movie are perfect fit for their respective roles.
Even though the story is routine and predictable the director makes you busy with the visual effects at perfect timings which makes you go spell bound. The movie is a complete visual treat. There are certain scenes which may give you goosebumps. The first half of the movie is not so great, except with few water fall scenes and the real story picks up its pace in the second half. The war scene is the highlight of the movie and the way it is showed is truly amazing and it is the first of a kind in Indian cinema and again hats off to Rajamouli sir for his brilliant ideas and executing them flawlessly. This movie can be a lesson to the emerging directors for thinking out of the box and giving the audience a new feel of cinema. Music of the movie is decent and the background score is not up to the standard of the movie. Fights are amazing, the screenplay and camera work is superb. The visual effects and graphics are grand and it can be seen in every bit of the movie. The story ends abruptly giving us a clear hint of the second part and a surprise!
