SS Rajamouli became a household name when he introduced to us with the epic magnum opus 'Baahubali- The Beginning.' The film which set upon a benchmark not only in the Indian cinema but in the world cinema too. The film gave the grandeur recognition to the cinema of today's generation thereby depicting what cinema really can be. This was the ultimate blockbuster of the year when it was released which also made Prabhas everyone's favourite in Bollywood. The first part hinted for a sequel and an answer to many questions which remained unanswered. 'Baahubali 2: The Conclusion' is now released worldwide and has already broken all the records right from the pre-release rights to the closure of advance bookings on the box-office.
The second part is the continuation of the first part and starts from the story where the first part ended. Kattappa (Sathyaraj) kills Bahubali (Prabhas) at the end of the first instalment and the second one tells us the story of Baahubali's son Shiva who tries to find the answers of all the questions. The majestic kingdom of Mahishmati is now much more grand and royal with Rajmata Sivagami Devi (Ramya Krishnan) ruling it with all her power. The story takes you to a flashback of events revealing the past stories of Sivagami Devi and Devasena (Anushka Shetty). Bhallala Deva is crowned as the king of Mahishmati all with his own wit and cruel plans while Baahubali is given the secondary position. What happens next is history. With a fear of internal warfare, Sivagami takes some rather tough decisions which are clearly disbelieving. The epic question of Why Kattappa killed Baahubali? is answered but we will not play a spoil sport here by revealing it. Apart from this, the director has planned many more surprises which you must have never dreamt of.
Prabhas as Baahubali and Shiva both leaves us stunned with his mesmerising performance. Kudos to the actor for carrying such a big film on his own shoulders. He becomes the sole owner of the film with his every second of screen presence. Be it his romance with Anushka Shetty or the war scenes with Rana Daggubati, the actor does this all with much more perfection. Anushka Shetty's journey from a young girl, to a wife and than to a mother is simply applaudable. The actress is praise worthy for every second she is on screen and has played her part very well. Rana Daggubati strictly reminds us of the Ravana from the epic Ramayana with his mighty prowess, well muscled body and quintessential expressions. His one mighty roar will give shivers down your spine. Sathyaraj as Kattappa, loyal guardian of the Mahishmati kingdom remains the hero in this film too.
Director SS Rajamouli's vision deserves a hats-off for making such a film. This shows the level of Indian cinema and he remains the ultimate director of today's era. The story line follows a smooth track which makes the screenplay much more interesting and intriguing with each passing second. The film gives you the best visual treats ever. From the royal kingdom to the warfare ground, the film gives you a fairy-tale feeling with the huge sets. You just feel lost in the film and actually feel the experience of being there itself. The VFX team has done a fantastic job. The songs too match with the screenplay and plays on the right time. Daler Mehndi's voice is a soothing treat to the ears like always.
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.
