Baahubali 2 : The Conclusion , the sequel of magnum opus, ‘Baahubali’ by SS Rajamouli comes back to answer the biggest question of the year- ‘Why Kattapa ( Sathyaraj) killed Baahubali ( Prabhas)?’ And yes this has finally an answer this time that keeps you hooked throughout the film with an interesting twist.
Baahubali 2: The Conclusion , through its larger than life cinematography, brings alive the imaginary kingdom of Mahishmati which serves as an apt visual treat for moviegoers who will definitely become awe-inspired with the vivid picturisation. The magnificient kingdom of Mahismati looks no less than fairytale; where Amarendra Baahubali ( Prabhas) meets Devasena ( Anushka Shetty) in a romantic moonlit night in backdrop of war, people engaged in fierce fights , huge warships looks exactly like a dream ‘fairytale’ story.
And the splendid cinematography leaves you spellbound, this rightfully deserves more than awards.
Baahubali : The Conclusion picks up the pieces exactly from the point where Kattapa killed Baahubali and carries forward the entire story. Prabhas emerged like a ‘superhero’ taming animals with an ease. However, the major part of the story talks about the courtship period between Amarendra and Devsena and this overpowers the major action sequences of the film.
The film gets an interesting twist, when Devsena turns down her marriage proposal with Bhallaldeva sent by Queen of Mahismati (Ramya), and this eventually stands out as an irony in the entire plot of the film when Bhallaldeva acquires the throne of Mahismati and Amarendra was appointed as the Chief of his army. It aptly hints the major conflict of the story without divulging much details. The mystery continues to pervade throughout the story.
Each characters of the film stands out on its own and no one is overshadowed by another, Daggubati aptly essays the role of ‘evil’ king, however the character of Devsena fails to pickup the pace. While Queen Sivagami stands out as a robust queen.
So go for sure for its larger than life and awe-inspiring visual treat, rest of the film becomes quite predictable!
