Finally after a long wait of almost two years, Baahubali 2: The Conclusion was released last week, finally providing all the answers we needed to curb that itch in our minds. Over the years, after watching some hundreds of movies and tv shows, we have built fences in our minds and we hold every other show to the standards which the best ones have set. And we all know putting someone in someone else’s shoes has always been fatal. So if you went for Baahubali 2 and didn’t like it, watch it without being judgemental. Watch it without skepticism and be rational towards the justice done to the old story of Mahishmati, and you will be amazed by the fact that this piece of art is made in India.
There are a lot of things which make Baahubali 2: The Conclusion what it is! It’s the sheer magic of terrific storytelling combined with a visual grandeur never seen in Indian cinema, that turns it into an experience that’ll be hard to forget anytime soon. If Baahubali: The Beginning, the previous part of this Baahubali franchise, gave us a glimpse of Mahishmati, the second part focuses on exploring the mindset of its characters and how a clash of ideologies can lead to some really big and devastating results. It is a visual extravaganza that we all must feast on. Part 2, The Conclusion generously carries the justness of the first part and ups the scale of heroism on many counts, especially in the second half of the film.
In this latest Hindi action movie, we have Amarendra Baahubali played by Prabhas who is ready to take on anyone because he believes that his duty towards his kingdom is bigger than any individual. There is Devasena, princess of Kuntal, played by Anushka Shetty who’ll stand up for what’s right in all the bold and valiant ways. We get to discover that the mighty Sivagami, played by Ramya Krishnan, who raised two kids on her own and also took care of the large kingdom is, after all, human and is susceptible to the fallacies of human nature unlike the role she played in the first part.
Bijjala Deva, played by Nassar, turns out to be far more cunning with his one super strong hand, that we thought he was in the first chapter of the movie franchise. The thirst for power of Bhallala Deva, a tyrant king played by Rana Daggubati, has turned into a personification of evil who plays mind-games to get what he wants. This movie well fulfills all our suppressed desires of Baahubali taking revenge on his evil brother and getting the people of his kingdom free from the unjust and fiendish rule. If you love Game Of Thrones, Lord Of The Rings and Harry Potter, you should definitely give a chance to this Indian equivalent of these counterparts. Director SS Rajamouli has given us something we won’t be able to forget in a long long time. So what are you waiting for? Go watch it in the nearest theatre and get the answer to #WDKKB?
