Pallvalthevan?', 'How Kunthala princess Devasena entered
Baahubali's life?', etc.
Cast & Crew
Written & Directed By SS Rajamouli
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 sequels can't over-power the first parts, with
this amazing piece of work.
Apart from the slightly dragged romantic sequences between the
lead pair Prabhas and Anuskha, misplaced songs, and lag in the war
sequences, Baahubali 2 totally succeeds in overpowering
its first part.
Prabhas as Amarendra Baahubali & Mahendra Baahubali (Shiva)
Prabhas has stolen the show with his exceptional performances as
Amarendra Baahubali and Mahendra Baahubali (Shiva) in the movie.
Hats off to the Tamil dubbing artist, who has done a fabulous job
by lending voice to Prabhas in the movie.
Anushka Shetty as Devasena
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. The actress succeeds in matching the
senior actors in the frame with her effortless acting skills, and
simply excels as Devasena.
Rana Daggubati as Pallvalthevan
Rana Daggubati who appears as the main antagonist Pallvalthevan
(Bhallaladeva), is simply perfect in his role. His portrayal of the
cruel king, especially the in the older age portions of the
character is totally praiseworthy.
Tamannah Bhatia as Avantika
Tamannah, who essays the role of Avantika, has got very less
screen space in the movie, to the much disappointment of her fans.
Even though she only appears in a few scenes, the actress has made
a mark with her impactful performance.
Sathyaraj as Karikala Kattappa Nadar
Sathyaraj, the veteran actor once again steals the show with his
fantastic performance as Karikala Kattappa Nadar. Surprisingly, his
character has been given an humourous touch in the movie, and the
actor has played it to near perfections. It is a pleasure to watch
Sathyaraj in the Tamil version, as the actor has dubbed in own
voice for the role.
Ramya Krishnan as Rajamatha Sivagami Devi
Ramya Krishnan delivers one of the best performances in her
career as Sivagami Devi. She has wonderfully portrayed the various
shades of her character with the same ease. It is a pleasure to
watch Ramya in the Tamil version, as has dubbed on her own voice
for the role.
Nasser as Pingalathevan (Bijjaladeva)
Nasser, the senior actor scores with his portrayal of
Pinagalathevan (Bijjaladeva), the evil maternal uncle of Baahubali
and father of Pallvalthevan (Bhallaladeva). He gets more space in
the movie to perform, while compared to the part 1.
Cinematography: KK Senthil Kumar
KK Senthil Kumar has handled the cinematography of the movie.
Baahubali 2 has reportedly been featured in a much larger
Music: MM Keeravani
MM Keeravani disappoints with the songs, except Bale Bale and
Vandhaai Ayya. But the musician scores with the background score
which will give you goosebumps.
Other Technical Aspects
The Tamil dialogues penned by writer-singer Madhan Karky are
crisp and sharp. The production design by Sabu Cyril is simply
brilliant and makes the movie a lifetime cinematic experience. The
editing could have been a little more effective, as the movie lags
at the romantic and war sequences.
The VFX was exceptional at the certain points, but falls flat at
a few portions, especially in the climax war sequences. Rama
Rajamouli, the costume designer has done a fabulous job by getting
the looks of actors at the point.
A classic movie experience which simply outshines its highly celebrated prequel. Don't miss this one...
