Let’s start off and say this is absolutely not a review, but a passionate simple write-up of an epic film! Secondly, you have to see part one to see part two! And third…just wow!
Baahubali 2 The Conclusion is a film that keeps you on edge from start to the last ending credit rolling across the digital screen. This film is S. S. Rajamouli’s cinematic masterpiece and totally worth the two-year wait. The film franchise is based on an Indian epic historical fiction story turned into a beautiful piece of artwork. But the most important question in our lives is answered during this film… Why Kattappa killed Baahubali!?
All questions are answered, all assumptions are cleared and we can peacefully sleep… or can we? I walked out of the film today feeling fully mesmerized and left speechless. I called my film-fanatic friend and just said, “wow”. How does one simply describe such a film and the answer is one cannot. When watching this film you will go through a special experience even non-film people would enjoy.
Coming to the start cast! It’s a privilege to be part of a generation where so much phenomenal talent is being showcased. I know a lot of the actors come from other industries outside of B-town and am admitting I have hardly seen any of their work outside of Baahubali, but it’s safe to say this is probably all of their best piece of work in their career. From Ramya Krishnan as Sivagami to infamous Sathyaraj as the Kattappa to our leading villain Rana Daggubati as Bhallaldev and the jaw-dropping Anushka Shetty as Maharani Devasena. Lastly, of course, my new favorite hero, Prabhas as Shiva and Baahubali! Plus many, many more renowned talent showcased on-screen in this saga. Each and every actor played their characters in such a way I didn’t feel as though they were acting or saying lines off a script. I just felt as though I was taken into the royalty world of kings and queens and became a part of their journey.
What else can I say about this film? The detail to set design, costumes, make-up, jewelry- it was all so perfectly put together. Every flower petal, bow-and-arrow, to each grain of sand, literally only such a large team and production could put this epicness together. Of course, the entire visual effects department of this film deserves a standing ovation. I don’t even think I’ve seen a Hollywood film as breathtaking as Baahubali 2. Additionally, I hate to compare, but between part one and two, the second out does what we see in the first film. The first film definitely builds up to what we get to experience in the conclusion though.
To conclude my scattered thoughts about the masterpiece film, you just have to see it in cinemas! I won’t lie I was shocked to see the higher ticket pricing of the film, but now I just want to go back and see it over and over again and hope to show the next generation what kind of epic films are being made today!
