Raghavendra (Telugu: రాఘవేంద్ర) is a 2003 Tollywood film directed by Suresh Krishna. It stars Prabhas, Anshu and Shweta Agarwal. Simran acted in an item number alongside Prabhas. Music was scored by Mani Sharma. The movie was also dubbed in Hindi as Sanyasi: The Warrior Saint and Malayalam as Sakthi in spite of being remade by Suresh himself in Hindi as Rocky: The Rebel.


Raghava (Prabhas) is a hot-blooded and restless youth who cannot tolerate injustice that is being done in the society. In the process, he picks up fight with local don Ankineedu (Anandaraj). Ankineedu stabs Shirisha (Anshu) - the ladylove of Raghava - to death. He also issues an ultimatum to Raghava's parents to leave the city in few hours. The vexed parents ask Raghava to accompany them only if he agrees to listen to their words. They take Raghava to Mantralayam, a relatives' place and make him become a devotee of Raghavendra Swami.

This entire episode comes as flashback. Raghava has a pretty sister-in-law called Maha Lakshmi (Shweta Agarwal) in Mantralayam. Raghava becomes a saint-like-man and does not even respond when some goons humiliate Maha Lakshmi. He does not bother to retaliate even when goons strip Maha Lakshmi off of her cloths in public.

The parents of Raghava - who forcibly restricted the helping nature of Raghava - ask Raghava to get rid of his maala and go back to society to serve people. The rest of the story is about how Raghava retaliates and puts an end to the lives of villain gang.
