• The last film felt more organic, this one throws everything at the screen, and it’s hard not to submit.

  • Baahubali 2: Rajamouli never loosens his grip on the narrative. Prabhas is a hero to celebrate. This is the rare sequel that is better than the first…

    I enjoyed the first part enormously. The second one comes to life only intermittently. Leaving the theatre, you can’t help wishing that Kattapa had killed the fellow earlier, for us to get a tighter, more economical and perhaps sharper conclusion.

    Baahubali is a delight for all those who enjoy cinema as a visual medium, there is not much else, though.

    There’s hardly any plot, the fight scenes are over-the-top and lengthy, the climax is a bit predictable, and you’ve got to be ready for a marathon viewing experience as the run-time is on the higher side. But Rajamouli’s grip of the visual medium overcomes these faults and with the help of the technical wizardry – Peter Heynes choreographing the stunts, Kamalakannan supervising the VFX, Senthil Kumar behind the sublime camera work, Keeravani composing the music and Madan Karky penning the dialogues, Baahubali 2 is worth a watch for the eye-candy. 

  • Better viewed as a whole instead of parts, Baahubali is a spectacular achievement, which not only deserves its place in history but also proves filmmakers should dream big and more often.

  • Despite its gargantuan cast, there are not more than 10 people in Baahubali who actually talk; the others merely exist as echoes. These are people forever chanting their support, nodding their heads in accord, or following directions.

    If you think about it, this lop-sided view of heroism is in complete disagreement with the spirit of great movies. But in a world of sheer campy values, as this one, such problems became the very essence of the experience.

  • Rajamouli is an exceptional storyteller and craftsman. It is in excess that the strength of Baahubali 2 lies and it makes no bones about it…

    Indian cinephiles must salute Rajamouli for his vision and ambition. He once again gives us our Benhur and Ten Commandments experience rolled into one. Of course it is CGI and VFX that grab you in your seat, but Baahubali also takes you on an emotional rollercoaster ride. The romance between Devasena and Amarendra has the Titanic fervour. While the performances of the lead cast are all believable, it is Peter Hein’s action—with Baahubali doing the Van Damme split and some sweeps that set your spirits soaring.

  • …the film would probably go down as campy and often over-the-top where the actors arch their eyebrows at every opportunity and warriors use palm trees as weapons of war.

     It is because Rajamouli never lets up in his attempt to deliver a spectacle that has to be enjoyed in theatres that “Baahubali 2: The Conclusion” is a worthy conclusion to this epic series. It may not up the ante from the last film, but it doesn’t let up on the pace either. For an Indian film, that is no mean feat.

    It’s a fantasy film and it delivers on that promise. You are transported into the world of the kings and warriors, of brave men and petty politics. The film engages you so well that you will cheer for Baahubali every step of the way, and curse Sivagami for being blind to his noble ways and getting manipulated.

    Baahubali: The Beginning ended with the question that left everyone perplexed. Bahaubali: The Conclusions leaves you with another: How long before viewers are treated to another Rajamouli film? Is Bollywood the next stop? Will it be another magnum opus? How does he top this gargantuan effort? The wait will be a while, but then Rajamouli through Baahubali movies has proven that patience has its rewards and that those who dream and dare can succeed.

  • Baahubali 2 is as big as the first one, maybe even better. A thoroughly entertaining action drama. Watch it for super amazing Prabhas and Anushka Shetty.

    …the BAAHUBALI franchise has successfully created its own world and some incredible characters that are sure to stay with you for a long, long time. Talking specifically of BAAHUBALI-2, it’s a feast for moviegoers and has the trappings to make all generations its fan. The film is sure to vanquish previous BO records and rewrite the rules of the game. It shouldn’t come as a surprise if it turns out to be the biggest grosser of Indian cinema. East, West, North, South… BAAHUBALI-2 is akin to a typhoon that will end the dry spell at the BO and go down as a textbook on how to make a solid entertainer. EPIC BLOCKBUSTER.

    Baahubali 2 is the pitch perfect follow up to 2015’s Baahubali. While it doesn’t have the same panoramic adventure of its predecessor, it does make up with grand scale and precise execution. This movie is worth the hype. Its worth wading through the crowds and sitting in a theatre seat for 3 hours. This film deserves the moniker of being India’s biggest film. Epics don’t come as glossy and detailed as this epic adventure.

    BAAHUBALI 2: THE CONCLUSION is an hauntingly eternal, ambitiously spectacular masterpiece that delivers on all fronts, having all the arcs for a swashbuckling blockbuster, the S.S. Rajamouli directed epic fantasy in reality is a lesson on how to conclude a sequel, making it bigger, better and unforgettable in the end. Was sad that BAAHUBALI 2: THE CONCLUSION has to finally end but glad that the audience faith in the magic of larger than life cinema that worships Indian mythology and pays tribute to Indian ethos is back and backed by the BAAHUBALI (means strong and powerful) shoulders of makers like S.S. Rajamouli who is now a phenomenon in mainstream cinema. Go experience the power of cinema in all its beauty and Indian grandiosity, watch BAAHUBALI 2: THE CONCLUSION right now.

  • What Baahubali does is show the future of Indian big-screen cinema, if it has to survive the onslaught of Hollywood, or move beyond Rajini, Khans, Kapoor, and Kumar, to begin with. The manager in my theatre says he plans to start Saturday shows, 6.30 am onwards. I can’t think of a better way to start your day. The excitement is totally worth it.

    Yes,Baahubali 2 is much bigger than the first film in every sense. It is far deeper and dreamy,drawing us into its magic and magnificence with a seamless swoosh that sucks us in. We fall into the ravine of ravishing courtly machinations with no desire to pull ourselves out of the hypnotic spell that Rajamouli casts on  us.

    The visual grandeur of Baahubali 2 is a notch higher compared to Baahubali: The Beginning, but more than anything, Baahubali 2 is yet another example why Rajamouli is one of the finest filmmakers we have. Go watch Baahubali 2: The Conclusion. It is an experience of a lifetime.

    Bahubali 2: The Conclusion is not just a movie, it is a phenomenon. It will set new benchmarks for a dubbed film and will emerge as one of the biggest Hindi blockbusters of all time. Why, it may also turn out to be the biggest ever blockbuster in Hindi in spite of being a dubbed fare. If the business of all the versions (Telugu, Tamil, Hindi dubbed and Malayalam dubbed) is considered, it will prove to be the BIGGEST BLOCKBUSTER EVER, no questions asked. Its business in big as well as in small centres, and in multiplexes as well as in single-screen cinemas will be huge. This one has tremendous repeat value. This one is destined to smash almost all (if not all) box-office records. This one is destined to write new box-office history.

    …gives you the complete joy of watching an epic fantasy film. Watch it on the biggest screen near you. And yes, why Katappa kills Bahubali, the secret is revealed.

  • It is totally recommended that you should go out and watch the film this weekend. ‘Baahubali’ is a kind of cinema which is not frequently made. So, grab your ticket and experience the visual treat that words can’t explain.

    Well, not that you were waiting for a critic review for this film but, yeah, a thumbs up from our side too!

    Baahubali 2 is an experience that should be enjoyed on the big screen. While the movie gets high points in most of the departments, we do wish Rajamouli could have given his magnum opus a befitting conclusion. Still, I would recommend the movie for Prabhas and Anushka Shetty’s powerful performances and its epic grandeur. Special tip: Do watch the Telugu version to retain the original essence, instead of the dubbed ones. The theatres are playing the movie with subtitles.

    ‘Baahubali 2’ offers pounding action, soap opera storytelling and some worrying ideas about valour

  • Baahubali The Conclusion like the first part is an example of a film made with high technical imagery. The final part is also epic in its scale and ambition and is racy. 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. But the material also has many flaws, which will be noticed more once the dust settles down. Despite these flaws (weak romance/lengthy fights, tad predictable climax), the film gives total entertainment and reinforces Rajamouli’s supremacy in telling stories with visual effects. Watch it.

  • The visuals are mesmerizing. You get an inkling of the scale as the censor board certificate is followed by an endless list of partners. The patient wait for the film to actually begin is well worth it. The opening credit sequence itself made me wish I had opted for the IMAX tickets, even if it was double the price. As I saw the film progress, I didn’t think I would have regretted the decision, though I didn’t mind saving the ₹250 – because ultimately, the want for a solid story always dominates.

    Given the premise the first one set, this one was poised to be a big reveal for reasons that led to Kattapa’s supposedly heinous act. But the flashback he narrates is engaging enough to serve as a suitable distraction and by the end of this film, this reveal is of little consequence.

    Bahubali: The Conclusion positively glows in comparison to contemporary Indian films. The visuals are awe-inducing, the fights breathtaking, and the film overall jaw-dropping. It’s just that you wish Rajamouli had cared a little less about getting jaws to drop and a little more about getting hearts to beat.

  • For the most part, The Conclusion doesn’t let us take our eyes off the screen. It’s designed to be a cinematic celebration, one that deserves to be watched on the largest screen possible.

  • Baahubali 2: The Conclusion is a colorful amalgamation of hit serials like Game Of Thrones and those archaic Indian mythological series such as Mahabharata or the Ramayna. It’s bloody, gory and has an indefatigable hero who know how to slay his opponents. 
    Watch this if you are a fan of fantasy fiction and love tales of warrior kings and fierce queens.

  • The beautiful elements of the film overshadow its few loopholes. Baahubali 2 is a cinematic gem and will not disappoint you at all. The movie is definitely better than the first part in all terms.

  • Madhuri


    Baahubali 2 has its set of flaws but what’s remarkable is that it wins you over with its honest performances, brilliant execution and magnificent scale. Go for this fantasy world, which has all the elements in the right place and makes up for a succulent feast!

  • Bahubali might well be a red letter moment for movie buffs in this country where a indigenous film is able to enthuse a mammoth of a reaction like this. For years we have been blabbering about content being king over the superstars Khans and Kapoors alike, but here is a film, which with regular actors who have grown to be monumental by the sheer credit of what they brought to the table. Give it up for Rajamouli for what he has managed to whip up. As for the film, it is a decadent watch that must be savored. We don’t see a reason to not watch it. There is nothing like a homegrown spectacle.

  • The action moves smoothly, even though the songs do slow down the narrative. You hardly feel the 171-minute running time, nor do you tire of seeing Prabhas and Anushka Shetty on the screen. Shetty, in particular, elevates the acting standard as the principled, independent, free-spirited princess Devasena who is dexterous with the bow and arrow. Her relationship with Baahubali leads to the most significant conflict in the plot.

  • The film is a complete surprise package with all the required elements. Royal starcast, majestic and massive sets, crispy story-line filled with many more surprises and much more. A serious note to all those who are going for this movie this weekend, that you are not allowed to blink your eyes for a single second as you will definitely miss something. Go and get your one of a lifetime experience this weekend.
