Directed by S S Rajamouli and produced by Allu Arvind under Geetha Arts banner, Magadheera moves along the lines of an action-based romantic thriller. Shot mostly in Gujarat and Rajasthan, the movie also has Srihari in a key role in the movie.
Magadheera has also taken on a political angle with the Congress leaders not permitting midnight shows at Tirupati to curb the black-marketing of tickets. With the entry of Chiranjeevi into the picture there has been much hoopla surrounding the movie.
The police had seized labels of Magadheera earlier, during a raid, when they were kept ready for releasing the pirated version of the movies.
