Prabhas’s Salaar film is a Masterpiece | Movie review

Are Indian filmmakers relying on violence, blood, and gunfire to ensure box office success? Examining the box office performances of films like ‘KGF’, ‘Leo’, ‘Jawan’, ‘Pathaan’, and ‘Animal’ suggests that violence may be a key element for massive collections. The recently released ‘Saalar’ received early praise from audiences, starting from its first show on the opening day.

The movie revolves around two former friends, Dev and Bardha, who have become archenemies. Another character named Tatto is also part of the story, set in a fictional place called Khansar, inhabited by criminals. The first chapter delves into the mystery and plot, while the real action unfolds in the second half. Director Prashanth Neel’s film draws comparisons to ‘Baahubali’, featuring Prabhas in a powerful and intense role. His performance, both physically and mentally, is commendable.

After ‘Baahubali 2’, southern superstar Prabhas has not delivered another hit film. In the last few years, his big-budget films like ‘Saaho’, ‘Radhe Shyam’ and ‘Adipurush’ were released but did not receive any significant response. However, ‘Salaar: Part 1 – Ceasefire’, made on a budget of Rs 270 crore, has emerged as a comeback for the ‘Rebel Star’, earning Rs 625 crore globally. The film’s success is set to be a memorable milestone in Prabhas’s career after a series of big-budget disappointments.
