Story

The movie starts from where the prequel ends. The second part revolves around the past of Amarendra Baahubali (Prabhas). It talks about  Amarendra and his wife Devsena(Anushka Shetty),  Greediness of Bhallala Deva(Rana Daggubati)  for becoming the king of Mahishmati,  His evilness and conspiracies against  Amarendra and Devsena, and Mahendra’s  (Prabhas)  revenge against  Bhallala Deva.  You will get the answer to the famous question “Why Did Kattappa Kill Baahubali?” Also, you will get amazed to know that this secret was revealed subtly in the first part, but you can’t realize it. Anyways, this time the movie has gotten a larger scale than its prequel. It will be interesting to watch this ‘Conclusion’ on the big screen only!

Plus Points:

Director S.S. Rajamouli has created bigger version this time. You will see stunning VFX and CGI effects in the movie.  The Action choreography of the second part is on a higher notch.  The Hard work of the whole team has made this second part watchable.

The script is stronger.  The director has made the character of Baahubali believable.  Though the suspense is predictable, but you can get the best entertainment through the movie.

The first half is balanced well with action, romance, drama, and comedy.  It will entertain you.

Though the story is not par excellence, you will see amazing ups and downs in the script.  Some scenes have become memorable like as entry of Baahubali, Baahubali and Devsena’s fighting scene, and Coronation scene,

Before, Baahubali 2: The Conclusion,   this level of grand visuals and VFX has not seen in the Indian Cinema.  The visualization of the story is amazing.

Talking about performances,   Prabhas is looking as a real Baahubali.  You can’t make difference between Prabhas and Baahubali.   He excels in every emotion, be it will be the romance or the action.  Rana Daggubati as Bhallala Deva is commendable.  His physical transformation for the Bhallala Deva’s character is commendable.

Anushka Shetty and Ramya Krishnan have created the powerful presence.   Sathyaraj is intense. Nassar is also stupendous in his job.

The Cinematography and the art direction are other better parts in the movie.

The movie’s most part is magnificent and visible.   The first half is filled with emotions and comedy.

Minus Points:

The second half is disappointing.  It has included with over melodrama and the typical South Indian masala. The story is weak.

When Devsena- Shivgami‘s track starts, it seems we are watching any Saas-Bahu serial.  This track is boring.

If you remember, the climax of the first part was shot on the large scale. But unfortunately, the climax of the second part doesn’t match to its prequel. The climax looks pale and dragged.

The use of the telescope and machines in the Mahabharata era looks unreliable. It looks funny when you will hear Urdu and Sanskrit words in songs.

Tamannaah Bhatia is wasted here. She has nothing to do in the movie.

The music of the first part was melodious. But we can’t say the same about the sequel.  The music is unimpressive here.   The background music is loud.

The editing could be crisper.

Is this movie worth a watch?

Though it has stunning visuals and mind-blowing performances, it is a one-time watch movie.
