Baahubali 2: Every Viewers’ Review

Never in the history of Indian Cinema, I’ve seen such hype about any other movie (except for Ra.One which was absolute and complete big disaster in the history of sci-fi and superhero movies). The days are gone when white guys used to call us the people who sing and dance around trees because apparently, all the famous actors did so. Indian Film industry is so more than that, its vast, its growing and now it has come up with a brilliant masterpiece, the Baahubali Franchise. The first movie was more of a plot establishing movie which left all of us hungry for more of the story of a prince avenging his father’s death and settling back the mammoth empire of Mahihmati. And after 6 years of waist-breaking hard work, blood and sweat of more than 500 technicians, some greatest minds of the film industry, some generous producers and unparalleled skills of actors who bring characters alive on big screen, finally we got the answer to the much much-awaited question that the nation wanted to know ‘Why Kattappa killed Baahubali?’ in the form of one absolutely extraordinary and extravagant three hours of awesomeness.
Since the movie is way too better than the usual Indian Movies we’re accustomed to, like the one in which a confused girl falls in love with a hot guy and then friendzones another gay-looking guy who apparently loves her and then later falls for the gay-looking guy and leaves the hot guy and gets cancer and then at the end they both get bald

the one in which a Gujarati Muslim guy who smuggles liquor accidently blows up a place, killing several people

, it has become a subject of comparison to 300 or Troy.
If we consider VFX and CGI as the basis of comparison then Baahubali 2 is slightly better than the first one but still far behind from the hundred million dollar budget movies like Pirates of the Carribean or Avatar but if we look at it with a broader perspective, the movie has everything, larger than life action, beautiful romance, heavy dialogues, out of the world plot, amazing screenplay, and cinematography, great direction and captivating visuals and one more thing that has given Baahubali 2 an upper hand over all the other movies of the same genre, the beautiful emotions and chemistry between the character. We may not have the best VFX or the best action sequences but nowhere around the world human emotions and feelings are so genuinely expressed that it makes you somehow an inseparable part of the movie, you connect with the character, you get happy when he gets happy, you cry when the guy he trusted the most kills him. The entire movie is full of wow moments and it’s worth watching several times.

 

Loopholes:

  • The movie keeps you on the edge of your seat for the first half, in the second half, you know very well what is going to happen and excitement almost vanishes. It feel like the filmmakers were so bored of working on the same movie for six years that they rushed to wrap it up somehow.
  • CGI at some point doesn’t look very genuine. In one particular scene, Bahubali Jr. tries to break into the castle with his army by using the coconut trees around the castle as a human-slingshot in order to skip over the tall walls, that was very lame. Nevertheless, most of the south-Indian directors prefer to defy gravity in their movies so it’s something we can’t complain about.
