Prabhas is seen playing the titular role of Bujjigadau, shortened as Bujji. Trisha portrays Chitti, also known as Meghana while Mohan Babu plays a gangster named, Sivanna.
Bujji and Chitti are good childhood friends, but after a falling out Chitti asks Bujji not to see her again for 12 years. However, she promises to marry him after this time. Bujji then goes to live in Chennai and becomes a goon. Here are a few of Prabhas' best scenes for the film Bujjigadau.
Prabhas makes an ideal entry in Bujjigadu. He appears as Bujji in a dashing style with beating some goons. He shows his acting skils in his very first scene in the movie. Prabhas also flaunts his well-toned body as he beats up his enemies.
Bujji stays with Sivanna changing his name as Rajinikanth. He meets Meghana, Sivanna’s sister whose real name is Chitti. At first, Bujji does not recognise that Meghana is his childhood love Chitti. When Bujji gets to knows that Meghana is Chitti, he gets filled with hope and love. But Sivanna asks Bujji to not reveal his real identity.
Bujji was sent to kill Sivanna by Machi Reddy, but could not complete his task. Machi learns that Bujji has become a part of Sivanna’s gang and he sends his son to shoot Chitti. When Machi’s son shoots Chitti, Bujji sees it and falls apart. His action in the climax scene was also appreciated.
Bujjigadu was earlier titled as Shadow with Shriyan Saran as the leading lady. But she opted out due to her busy schedule, as per reports. The film was remade in Bangladesh as Pagla Deewana by Pri Moni and Shah Riaz. Prabhas' catch phase name, Darling from the film became popular and also his trademark name. Bujjigadu also stars Kota Srinivasa Rao, Sunil, Ali and MS Narayana with others.
