Hmm...I will share my theater exp of both films a little here..
I was shell shocked and stunned with the trailer of magadheera..it had some horse riding and 100men fight scenes shots in it..so i was highly excited and desperate to watch it on day 1 fdfs itself..
I was in my 10+2 I think...I flocked the theater with 4-5 close buddies at 8 am (I had a hope that atleast I will get 1'o clock show tickets)
With all the Hala bula heavy stampede in q we all managed to get 6'o clock evening show tickets..
And in theater i was blown away with rajamouli direction capabilities..
It was 4.75/5 for me just after 1st watch..
Again in all this year's I have seen many times ..say atleast 40 times ..
Now it's just 3/5 for me...
Coming to baahubali 1, after magadheera I felt the same craze and buzz around. And I'm pretty impressed but didn't have that excitement level of magadheera..
I saw baahubali on 3rd day..
It's 4/5 for me....again in this 2 1/2 yrs I have seen it 30+ times ..
Now I will rate it as 3.75/5
Overall baahubali series is better than magadheera now..
But magadheera gives you a mass punch and adrenaline rush that impacts higher than baahubali after first watch....
