Baahubali 2: The Conclusion Movie Review
Star Cast: Prabhas, Rana Daggubati, Anushka Shetty, Tamannaah, Sathyaraj, Nasser, Ramya Krishnan, Subbaraju
Director: S S Rajamouli
Much awaited second part of Baahubali series is out in cinemas now. Receiving super positive response and appreciation from audience as well as critics. It’s not often that a single story is narrated in the form of two massive and grand feature films. With Baahubali – The Beginning, the director S.S. Rajamouli has very intelligently written the screenplay and left the audience curious with some very interesting and important questions. A big question was left unanswered – why did Kattappa kill Baahubali?
Story: The movie begins with Amarendra Baahubali (Prabhas) saving Rajamata at a ritual procession. Before making him the king, he is sent to Kuntala Rajyam with Kattappa (Sathyaraj), where he meets Devasena (Anushka Shetty), the princess of this territory. He falls in love with her at first sight. Meanwhile Bhalladeva (Rana Daggubati) and Bijjala Deva (Nassar) have evil intentions of capturing the throne and creating a situation where Rajamata has to make Bhallala as the King of Mahismati. Anything more will be a spoiler. For the rest of the story and to answer your biggest question, watch this epic at a theatre near you.
Acting: Entire star cast has performed very well in the movie and receiving appreciation for their work. Especially Prabhas Raju & Rana Daggubati have nailed it, they both are looking amazing in their characters. Anushka is beautiful and is at her best in all the confrontational scenes with Rajamata, as the warrior prince of Kuntala. Nassar and Satyaraj were more powerful than they were portrayed in the first part.
Direction: I’m not enough skilled about movie direction to comment on the work of genius like S.S. Rajamouli. I want to say only “Direction of the movie is Excellent”. It is not a easy task to make movie on such high level, it could not be possible without a passionate person like S.S. Rajamouli. He just registered himself in the list of best movie directors of Indian Cinema by making Baahubali.
SS Rajamouli has now set the benchmark higher for rest of the film-makers in India to look up. Salute to the visionary director.
Music: MM Kreem’s music I felt takes a backseat in this film. Compared to the first part which had songs that were high on recall value, this one doesn’t do justice. Sound designing is spot on and hence you truly feel those arrows hitting and every slash of the blade (swords) fiercely.
What’s Good: A powerful story and Rajamouli’s vision to build this magnum opus is laudable. This is a visual spectacle!
What’s Bad: A few over the top action sequences and hamming by supporting cast is annoying.
