Bahubali 2 (2017) - An Epic Grandeur

Those who are yet to see or have already seen will confidently agree, Bahubali 2 is a visual treat. However, among all the gala extravaganza, it’s absolute strength lies beneath its story which makes this colossal feat a striking experience. Director S.S. Rajamouli has crafted an Indian epic which is going to captivate generation for ages.

Plot : Story centers around the feud between two brothers over the throne of Mahishmati Kingdom, coupled with love, sacrifice, treachery & epic scale battle.

Not many movies are there which can boast about a worthy sequel, Bahubali 2: The Conclusion not only has a well-crafted script but a well-balanced story with cinematography of grandeur scale. We see the return of the cast from the original outing, Ramya Krishnan as Sivagami, Prabhas as Amarendra Bahubali & Rana Daggubati as Bhallaladeva gives stellar performance worthy of all the admiration they are being showered with.
I usually don’t prefer songs used within Indian movies as they take away the tone of the story, however its surprising to see how well the soundtrack has been imbued making it not only enjoyable but a necessity, at the end it will make you hum on the tune.

It is the first time where the VFX - Visual Effects have been used extensively, perhaps the first Indian movie, Ra.One does not quite fit the mark, as its effects were quite obnoxious, whereas both the Bahubali movies were successful in putting them to good use, of course there were times where you could easily make out the effects as CGI but they were in no way overdone; I do hope they do some remastering before releasing for home editions just like what George Lucas has done with Star Wars franchise

Bahubali rejuvenates the fantasy genre within Indian pop-culture & opens up the likelihood for the making of India’s greatest epic Ramayana & Mahabharata which have been delayed for several decades.
In short, this movie is a cinematic experience which commands to be enjoyed on big screen. 

My Verdict : Highly Recommended
