There are multiple independant reasons why the relationship V - I is powerful, but suffice to say that for both physics reasons and also convention all of classical harmony is based on this relationship.

One can harmonise a surprising amount of melodies by saying that each chord must be either
a) the same chord as the previous melody note
b) one chord clockwise on the cycle of fifths
c) one chord anticlockwise on the cycle of fifths

If you allow for certain chords to have their relative minor/major then apart from occasional exceptions, you have the basis of the whole of classical harmony.

Sorry, it really is that simple.
