It is Prabhas’ birthday and the frenzy among his fans just doesn’t seem to stop. The actor, who turns 39 today, has emerged as one of the country’s most popular celebrities. Right from his debut with Eeshwar (2002) to the latest Saaho, Prabhas has managed to turn heads for a multitude of fascinating reasons with each of his movies. On the occasion of his birthday, we take a look at 5 of his best works. So, here are the must-watch movies of Tollywood’s darling.
An endearing love story, rib-tickling comedy, and soothing tunes are what made Darling popular among the fans. Directed by Karunakaran, the film came as a breezy entertainer in 2010 and has developed a cult status over the years.
Varsham was the first blockbuster in Prabhas’ career. The 2004 movie shows Prabhas in the role of a raging youngster who takes up the fight against a gangster to win his love. The movie’s music, which was composed by Devi Sri Prasad, also created a rage among the fans.
Mirchi occupies a special place in the actor’s career. The film marked the directorial debut of Koratala Siva and turned out to be one of the biggest hits of 2013. Fondly remembered for its action and music, Mirchi was Prabhas’ biggest commercial success before Baahubali had released.
Powerful dialogues, brawny fights, and a rocking background score; these are the things that a fan would generally associate with Chatrapathi. The film witnesses the actor in the role of a potent leader, who locks horns with an equally vengeful opponent. Chatrapathi also marked the first collaboration of Prabhas with SS Rajamouli.
A movie that needs no introduction. One of India’s biggest blockbusters, Baahubali skyrocketed Prabhas’ fame all over the globe. Donning the role of a king, Prabhas essayed the role with perfection and grew synonymous with regality. The magnum-opus fetched the actor many accolades and had drawn him a massive fan-base from different corners.
