SS Rajamouli, the director of the magnum opus deserves a huge round of applause for making Baahubali 2 a magnificent cinematic experience. The director has successfully broken the myth which suggests that sequel can't over-power the first parts, with this amazing piece of work.
Anushka Shetty once again proves why she has been considered as one of best actresses of her generation, with the brilliant performance in the movie.
Verdict A classic movie experience which simply outshines its highly celebrated prequel. Don't miss this one.
While visual spectacle was expected, to what extent has Vijayendra Prasad succeeded as a story-writer will be subjected to rigorous analysis in the coming days. It's because of the hype that came to surround the Baahubalian question of why Kattappa killed Baahubali.
Verdict: 'Baahubali-2' has its share of hits and misses, writing-wise. How far the audience enjoy the scenes leading up to Baahubali's murder at Kattappa's hands will determine the film's enormity of success. First-rate performances, Devasena and Sivagami's decisions and the visuals are big hits. The war episode may be found to be less fascinating than the Kalakeya war in the first part.
The first time around the animated hi-jinks that Rajamouli created, a sort of ‘desi tadka’ version of Peter Jackson and James Cameron crossed with Amar Chitra Katha, were astonishing, both in terms of scale and setting and story telling.
The clash between warring princes Baahubali (Prabhas) and Bhallala (Rana Dagubatti) is the fulcrum around which the film revolves. As we know from the first part, Baahubali is the good guy, the rightful heir to the throne, and will save his kingdom from the evil Bhallala, come what may.
The second half also goes on smoothly till the revealing point of what prompted Kattappa to kill Baahubali. Thereafter, it loses the steam. The reason itself is quite predictable, many would have guessed this. And when Shivudu who is son of Amarendra Baahubali comes into the scene towards the climax, the story turns into a drama of vendetta.
The answer to "Why Kattappa Killed Baahubali?" is told in the second half but the movie has many highlights. It is a film made with sentiment sequences and heroism-elevating scenes.
Most scenes create heavy impact due to his pumping back ground music. Not to mention about the grandeur visuals. Cameraman’s effort is tremendous. Art work is fabulous. CG work could have been better, considering the sky high budget of the film. Stunt Choreography and execution is hollywood level.
Tamil version is claimed as Bilingual, but unfortunately it is a dubbed version. With the grand making, visuals, music and interesting screenplay, film is undoubtedly one of the biggest in indian cinema.
For a generation which has been subjected to contemporary and social premises, Baahubali comes as an all new experience which is regal in itself. Rajamouli handholds the audience to a different time zone where there are kings, queens, palaces, breathtaking sceneries and the likes.
Verdict: Brilliant vision, well executed! Go watch Baahubali as Indian visuals effects industry comes of age
