Despite its contrivances- and there are- ''Baahubali 2: The Conclusion" is a smash. An effective conclusion of the royalty universe it is, but the film manages to raise the bars with authenticity in thought and emotion.
SS Rajamouli delivers what he promised in the first, though with a little less organic touch- the premise is what constructs the stunning film: a flashback- The film is set in medieval India and follows the sibling rivalry between Amarendra Baahubali and Bhallaladeva. But what constructs the film more is Amarendra Baahubali's absolute world. The worth-becoming-king young prince who is loved by his subjects and Sivagami, the only mother he has known. However, Sivagami's husband Bijjala Deva wants that their son Bhallala Deva be the king of Mahishmathi, for reasons already told by the first film.
And then there are flights of fancy and fantasy, as Baahubali is on the travels of his vast to-be kingdom. And it is there that he meets the queen of his dreams: Devasena, the princess of Kunthala, bold, beautiful, stunning, ambitious, blazing, feminist.
These two come to the stunning, powerful kingdom of Mahishmathi only to discover the things upside down. Amarendra is no longer the king. In fact, he is no longer a prince. He is a commoner.
And that's where the real, authentically framed and superbly executed conclusion completes itself. Not only is it thorough, but also enjoyable, with beating rhythms and pulsating making.
Anushka Shetty overpowers the winning film. Maybe it has to do with the modernity in which the character is moulded, but it has something more to do with those eyes, those lips, those fingers. They carry that image of a goddess, which has become the plethora of divinity in the Hindu metaphorical world. Amarendra Baahubali is still a warrior, an absolute man, a complete kingly image. Bhallala is strong as the villain once again. But Bijjala Deva is a find, with his spectacular act as the anti hero. And Sathyaraj's Katappa actually emotes, and that's what makes the act better than the first.
Above anything else, watching ''Baahubali 2: The Conclusion" is having a scintillating experience at the cinemas, experience a novel, soulful and rhythmic display of mesmerizing, glorious world that Mahishmathi constitutes of. And believe me, it is fun! It is no ''The Beginning'', but these last pages don't slow down. I'm going with 4 stars out of 5 for ''Baahubali 2". Go and watch this accomplishment.
except fighting scenes ,movie is power pact
BAAHUBALI THE BEGINNING took entertainment and Indian cinema both to new heights. So obviously it raised the expectations from BAAHUBALI THE CONCLUSION. And undoubtedly, the conclusion lives up to every expectation and proves to be rather better than the Beginning. Largely because here we have every good element needed for a perfect film, present in this film. I watched the film twice on the big screen. Such great films should be seen on the big screen and not on pirated prints.
BAAHUBALI THE CONCLUSION is a perfect film which defines Indian cinema and culture. This isn't just a film, it's a grand celebration that must be celebrated at theatres. We don't get to see such great films daily. This film is really better than the Beginning because it offers more intensity, emotion, high voltage action, splendid visuals and goosebumps-inducing sequences. Even while watching it second time, I got goosebumps in certain sequences. This is really an unmissable family entertainer. There's no vulgarity or obscenity in this film. Kids can definitely watch and enjoy this film.
The best part of the film is...the entire film! I can't describe in words how entertaining this film is and it's really hard to choose only one or two scenes as favourite. SS Rajamouli proves himself yet again, along with his entire team. Every single character will be remembered in the history of Indian Cinema. Besides, there's a lot of creativity visible in BAAHUBALI THE CONCLUSION. From the beginning to intermission to the end: each and every scene is 100% engaging and wonderfully shot. The action sequences are very enjoyable and perfectly executed. This is really the BEST action film ever, ever, ever.
The visuals are breathtaking. Splendid and presented with sharp details, the visual effects make you fall in love with the film. Prabhas is as entertaining and excellent as usual. Rana Daggubati is excellent in his role. As a character you'll hate him but as an actor you'll salute him. Anushka Shetty impresses big time. Sathyaraj...I mean what an actor! His performance is absolutely perfect. The music is really good and will stay with you for long. Cinematography too deserves a special mention for capturing this film in an excellent way. And how can one forget to praise the writer Vijayendra Prasad, who wrote this epic? Just praising won't do. A big salute!!!!!
Undoubtedly, BAAHUBALI THE CONCLUSION is the best film of Indian Cinema. If you liked the beginning, you'll definitely like the conclusion. Even if you didn't, you'll love this part. And I loved both. The Conclusion however is, as I said before, better than the Beginning. Come on, now don't look at some of the (undoubtedly mindless) negative reviews and watch this film with your family, but not on pirated prints. The film's bluray will be releasing soon and I've pre-ordered it. One or two viewings aren't enough!
