Baahubali Review

Baahubali is a must watch for its grandeur and is definitely a movie to experience in theaters. However, in case of story telling it has nothing to offer as it has a beaten to death revenge drama as it's plot.

The movie has its share of moments but the problem comes when you wish to watch a Epic from Rajamouli. So folks, set your minds free and fall in love with Baahubali.

On the whole, Baahubali is one film which every Indian movie lover can be extremely proud off. Right from the word go, this visual extravaganza treats you to some never before seen elements in Indian films. Prabhas’s stunning avatar as Baahubali, brilliant art work to some eye topping visuals effects, this film has it all. Genius director Rajamouli, should be lauded and supported for his dedication in taking Telugu cinema to the next level. Finally, if you ignore the predictable story line and keep your expectations in check, Baahubali is bound to entertain you big time.

A visual feast, 'Bahubali' is not Rajamouli enough. The Hollywoodish ending may well be a trendsetter, but the question is, are the audience ready for such one? A one time watch.

Rajamouli opts for a folklore and love story that are way too common and at times, even moth-eaten. There’s an overall lack of feelings in Baahubali. With that said, maybe a duology is just too much to ask of “Baahubali”, and hopefully Baahubali – the conclusion will be more superior to the part one.

It has been a pure delight to watch those Waterfalls and Mahishmathi is a Total Visual treat. The Extraordinary visual content has been to an extent let down by lack of strong emotional conflict. Also it has around 100 Minutes of Action Sequences which is probably too much for some sections. Nevertheless you can still watch the film easily for its Grandeur and Rajamouli`s Vision.

Baahubali is an attempt to up the ante and take Telugu movies to a higher level. Please watch it!

Given the sky high expectations, Baahubali The Beginning might leave you with a pinch of disappointment. But this is a decent watch with its share of emotional highs, goosebump moments and key highlights. However, you might feel like an abrupt interval break given in an English film towards the end of the film. Yet it deserves a thumbs up for the film.
