Salaar: Part 1-Ceasefire, the much awaited global premiere of Prabhas and Prashanth Neel’s marriage, finally made its way into big screens after a three-year wait, to acclaim. Come explore our review with us to find out if the movie roars like a dinosaur or not.


In Tinsukia, Deva (Prabhas) has a carefree life with a mysterious history alongside his mother. A bunch of thugs breaks up the peace as they look for Aadhya (Shruti Haasan), who recently moved to the area. After following the group, Deva learns that Varadharaja Mannar (Prithviraj Sukumaran), his best buddy, is behind the plot in Khansaar City. The fight intensifies, raising important concerns. Aadhya is who? What links Varadharaj and her? What made the two best friends so hostile against one other? The solutions are revealed in the film.

 Extra Credits:

Following a long break, fans can now see Prabhas in a full-fledged action movie, expertly directed by Prashanth Neel, who knows how to show off the Herculean Prabhas in a way that fans would find appealing.

It is difficult to picture another actor playing Deva, alias Salaar, in place of Prabhas because of how well he suits the part. His character is incredibly violent even if there isn’t much talk, which draws attention to his body language, dialogue style, and all-around likeable personality. Particularly during action scenes, Prabhas’ ferocious and vicious demeanor puts viewers on the edge of their seats.

Prashanth Neel said that Prithviraj Sukumaran gives a respectable performance that gives the movie a lot of depth. His surprisingly good Telugu and his interesting scenes with Prabhas make for a more enjoyable watch.

The script, which is characteristic of Prashanth Neel and is witty, sharp, and uplifting, gives the drama a powerful first half. Excellent action scenes are complemented by a well-organized soundtrack. The film’s attractiveness is enhanced by noteworthy moments such as the intermission, climax, and altitudes.

Negative Points:

The first half of the narrative moves along at a respectable clip, but the second half could have used an extra polished narrator. The second hour’s sequences may make you think of KGF, which would take away from the originality of the movie.

Prashanth Neel overshadows players like Brahmaji and Jhansi, who may have more important parts in the second half, in favor of stars like Jagapathi Babu, Bobby Simha, John Vijay, and Sriya Reddy, even if the supporting cast is large.

This segment contains a lot of violence, which could make it difficult for families to relate to the movie.

Technical Aspects:

Once again, Prashanth Neel demonstrates his directing talent by deftly elevating heroism via straightforward situations. Nonetheless, a more concentrated approach to the script and story in the latter part may have improved the story as a whole.

A couple situations are elevated by Ravi Basrur’s soundtrack, who does a good job overall. The cinematography by Bhuwan Gowda is remarkable, with Anbarivu’s stunts being particularly noteworthy. The production qualities are excellent, even though Ujwal Kulakarni’s editing in the second hour could have been more polished.


Overall, Salaar: Part 1-Ceasefire is a powerful action drama with outstanding performances from Prabhas and Prithviraj, particularly during the action sequences. The whole attractiveness of the picture is enhanced by the skillfully performed stunts. But the obvious flaws include the too violent content, a fairly slow second half, and a straightforward story. Salaar: Part 1-Ceasefire is a thrilling action-packed film that is worth seeing this weekend if you’re a fan of Prabhas.
