Back Story

In 2015 we witnessed the magnum opus Baahubali: The Begining, a movie made on a budget of 180 crores went on to shatter all records and did business of 650 crores worldwide. As the world consumed Baahubali, it resonated with one very important question: Kattappa ne Baahubali ko kyu maara?

Story

The film opens with credits and just that canvas is so beautiful and grand. Reminds me of Game of Thrones, but wait, I am here watching a regional Indian Film. I brace myself for the story to unfold.

Just thinking about the story, the plot is concise and to the point. The story isn't completely out of the box but it's treatement is nothing short of amazing. The grandeur keeping us in awe, submerging all the senses to be fully involved. The story, the beautiful CGI, the music, and the performances all packed in a mighty package of Baahubali: The conclusion

Performances

Well, the performances are just as they were in Baahubali: The Begining, fully defined and vocal characters played by crafted artists. Prabas as Baahubali, Rana Daggubati as Bhallala Dev, Anushka Shetty as Devasena, Ramya Krishnan as Sivagami or Sathyaraj as Kattappa, the performances are crisp and magestic. Action sequences a delight to watch, with some unbelieveable action thrown to lift your spirits and make you laud Baahubali.

Music 

The background music lifts you up, gets you ready for the fight, the dolby digital ensuring you become one with the fight and get emotionally involved. You feel like, you are witnessing this epic first hand. The songs are good too, but like the first part of Baahubali: The Begining, the songs didn't create a sensation on the charts as the originals are in Tamil, but they do justice to each and every frame in the film

Editing & Direction

I think one of the most difficult thing for the editor to do in this film would be to sync the lip movement to the languages the film was dubbed in, and the editor has done a job so perfect, I had a hard time believing that the film was made in Tamil and these are just Voice Actors dubbing the on-screen characters.

Direction by S.S. Rajamouli is breathtaking. He ties the knots together and ensures he quenches the thirst of the fans who had been eagerly awaiting the answer to why Kattappa killed Baahubali.

Writing & Screenplay 

Writing, as far as original story is concerned, is not so fresh. The dialogs are good, but not grand as the film. Screenplay is beautiful, and the CGI works its magic and takes you on a fantastical ride where ships can fly and a man can lock horns with a bull.

Suggestto Verdict

Don't judge the movie for what it's not. Watch the film for pure pleasure. The film pleases your senses – the background music for the ears, the perfect cgi and locations a treat for your eyes, the action sequences to bring a chill on your skin, the popcorn that you forget to munch on as the film leaves you with a mouth wide open, and the smell of revenge. The film is a must watch for you, your Baahubali crazed friends and your family too.
