Chatrapathi is a 2005 Telugu action drama film written and directed by S. S. Rajamouli. Prabhas plays the lead role and Arti Agarwal, Shriya Saran, Bhanupriya, and Pradeep Rawat appear in other roles. The film released on 29 September and was dubbed into Tamil, Malayalam and Hindi as Chatrapathi, Chandramauli and Hukumat Ki Jung (2009) respectively. The film was remade in Kannada under the same name with Dr. Siddhanth and Priyadarshini in lead roles and in Bengali as Refugee starring Prosenjit and Rambha.


Shivaji (Prabhas) and Ashok (Shafi) are the sons of Parvati (Bhanupriya). Shivaji is her stepson, but Parvati shows equal affection on both of them, and this is not liked by Ashok, who is her biological son. They are one of the families living on the coast of Sri Lanka. One day, these villagers are forced to evacuate the coast. By Ashok's dislike on Shivaji, he lies to his mother that Shivaji died in the fire that was burning everything. Then, he is separated from his family. He ends up in a different boat and lands in Vizag port. He is brought up in the port itself, but his search for his mother never ceases. In that process he comes across Neelu (Shriya).

Here, the port is dominated by Baji Rao (Narendra Jha) and some goons using refugee labor for their own gain. Shivaji is an aggressive guy, but is controlled by his well wishers. One day, he reacts aggressively in defence of himself and the other refugees. People start calling him Chhatrapati. Ras Bihari (Pradeep Rawat) comes down to Vizag in the hunt for Shivaji since he killed his brother Baji Rao. Ashok, too, lands in the same place. Realizing that Shivaji is his brother, he joins hands with the bad guys. The story is then of Chhatrapati, who is searching for his mother, and has a bunch of bad guys, including his brother, on his back while the entire port looks up to him.
