Magadheera, revolving around reincarnation and death, is scaling the charts and most film pundits clearly vouchsafe for a 100 crore plus collections. However, the success of this movie has posed a problem for the movies, which are awaiting the day of release. The reports and the alarming success rate, has forced movies like Mallanna and Josh to postpone their release by a week or two later. The smaller movies will definitely have to bear the brunt of the Magadheera success. What has been more encouraging is that the film was made on a moderate budget.
With immense fanfare and hoopla, Magadheera is riding high up the success curve and audiences are floating in huge numbers to the theatres for the movie. During a show at the Ashoka theatre in Rajahmundry on Saturday, a Chiranjeevi fan lost his life while pledging his loyalty to his icon by watching Magadheera. The man vomitted blood and was soon rushed to the hospital by the theatre authorities, but he breathed his last during the treatment.
