Story

Raja Mannaar is the leader of the town Khansaar. He wants his son Vardharaja Mannaar to become the new leader after him. However, some of Raja Mannaar’s close associates like ministers and advisors are secretly plotting against Vardharaja. They are hiring armies from faraway places like Russia and Serbia to try to take over Khansaar instead of letting Vardharaja rule.

Vardharaja does not just sit back and allow this threat. He escapes from Khansaar and goes to his childhood best friend Deva’s home. Deva is determined to help Vardharaja when she hears what is happening. She tells him “no way we can let this happen!” and that they cannot allow the plotters to take over Khansaar from him.

In essence, it is a story of betrayal and conflict, where the heir Vardharaja has to fight against internal forces trying to seize power away from him and his father, with the help of his loyal friend Deva.

Cinematography:

  • Bhuwan Gowda’s camerawork is commendable.

Action:

  • The stunts choreographed by Anbarivu are highlighted as a standout element.

  • While Ujwal Kulakarni’s editing in the second hour could have been more refined, the overall production values are praised.

Review

If you are a fan of Prabhas or enjoy high-octane, action-packed movies, then Salaar: Part 1 – Ceasefire is worth watching this weekend. But the simple story, lengthy second half, and too much violence are noted as negatives.

So in essence, it delivers on the action front thanks to the performances and stunts, but suffers from a relatively weak story and pacing issues, especially in the latter portions. But action fans and Prabhas’ fans may still find it an enjoyable watch.
