Baahubali – The Beginning made the entire nation crazy and the reason for Kattappa killing Baahubali became the topic for national discussion. It was simply high on entertainment and I had barely anything to write about it as I was just mesmerized by the scale of the film. I had the shortest review ever for Baahubali – The Beginning.
Link: BAAHUBALI-THE BEGINNING
Makers promised us with Baahubali – The Conclusion arriving in 2016 but India did not mind waiting for a year more being patient and holding on their curiosity. Baahubali – The Conclusion does not live up to the expectations considering the kind of suspense everyone was looking for, the reason for Kattappa killing Baahubali has no grandeur around it, it looks like a very subtle plugin in the film. Along with these quite a few unanswered questions, Avanthika’s (Tamanna Bhatia) reason to save/ rescue Devasena (Anushka Shetty) is not explained. We know Bhallaladeva (Rana Daggubatti) has a son whose head is chopped off by Amarendra Baahubali (Prabhas) but we do not see his wife anywhere in the film. Kudos to S.S Rajamouli that he makes sure even after these questions remaining unanswered he delivers a power packed entertainer that leaves you satisfied and fulfills your entertainment hunger. Like Baahubali – The Beginning, Baahubali – The Conclusion will leave same impact on you and you will come out of the theater as a happy audience.
Baahubali – The Conclusion is a film where major factors like performances and music take a backseat even though they are highly amazing. Its the technical genius of the film that makes it standout. Baahubali – The Conclusion is flawless in production design, costumes, make-up, background score, sound design and editing. Screenplay of S.S. Rajamouli is lame in first half and predictable in second half. The entire love track of Prabhas and Anushka Shetty is difficult to sit through. Limited action and VFX also fail to save this portion of the film. It is little before the interval the film becomes engaging but then the predictable second half does not become much of an issue as S.S. Rajamouli makes every single frame like never seen before. VFX which was loved and appreciated by everyone in Baahubali – The Beginning is slightly overdone in Baahubali – The Conclusion, considering this installment is supposed to be set in time before the previous installment. Also the overall look and feel of the film is slightly toned up making it more glossy which seems not required. Special mention to the opening credits where they revise Baahubali – The Beginning via three dimensional images and these images are something to die for.
Overall Baahubali – The Conclusion deserves to be watched by everyone because not so often we see films made on such huge scale, obviously leaving Hollywood aside. This one is an expensive fare but somewhat worthy. Make your choice 😉
