Plot of Salaar

What follows is an epic tale of the true depth of friendship between two men. Let’s understand in full detail.

The Story of a Powerful Friendship

At its core, Salaar chronicles the friendship between Deva and Vardha since their childhood in 1985. They grow up as inseparable companions until Raja Mannar orders the annihilation of Deva’s tribe, forcing him to leave Khansaar with a vow of vengeance. Their destinies collide in 2017 when Deva has to rescue a girl named Aadhya, catching the attention of a now-grown up Vardha. What follows next is bound to test their bonds to the limit.

The Battle for Power

The fictional realm of Khansaar has a bloody history of rulers being overthrown or massacring rival tribes. After Raja Mannar returns to restore Vardha as the heir apparent, a complex conspiracy follows with members of the royal family, ministers, and tribal warlords vying to seize the throne for themselves. A gritty survival tale unfolds as Vardha finds himself besieged on all sides following his decisive vote to lift the ceasefire imposed in Khansaar. With apocalyptic battles and betrayals aplenty, this struggle for power in a lawless dystopian land forms the central plot crux of Salaar.

The first single “Shwaasakatthe” is a pulse-pounding dance number celebrating the lead protagonist’s prowess. The second single titled “Jai Jai Shivshankara” is a devotion song

with foot-tapping beats, while the massy “Bhairavi” promises to be a chartbuster. Telugu lyricist Krishna Kanth’s soulful lyrics

blend beautifully with the powerful musical score.  Lead actor Prabhas himself has rendered his vocals for one song in the film,

which marks his debut as a playback singer.

The unique dystopian setting of Khansaar called for Ravi Basrur’s compositions to strike a fine balance between a contemporary chorus-heavy sound and folksy melodies rendered soulfully by singers alike Harini Ivaturi and Kanakavva. If the trailers are anything to go by, the background score takes the high-voltage drama up several notches, making it an immersive auditory experience for viewers.
