Review: The sequel to Bahubali : The beginning took it’s stand. And this stand was unbelievable grossing a whimsical amount of 1000 crores and still counting which happened for the very first time in the history of indian Cinema.
The first of the movie takes it’s time to setup the history, which includes the love angle between Devasena(Anushka Shetty) and Bahubali(Prabhas).
There’s comic relief in these portions and it’s amazing how the writers have moulded Katappa’s otherwise tough and dutiful character to funny antics here.
But it also shows some spine chilling war sequence.
Devasena’s character from her younger days clearly justifies her tough status from the first part where, she stands tall against Bhallaladeva in spite of his power.
Anushka Shetty as Devasena looks luminous in her princess avatar. She pulls off the action scenes equally well and has a likable chemistry with Prabhas on-screen.
Sathyaraj does a great job of playing Katappa, the prime character in this film. His comic act in the first half is quite a good break from the drama otherwise.
Prabhas is exceptional in this film. Thanks to his amazing screen presence, you rarely look away from him. His transformation from being an assertive leader to a lovestruck Baahubali, to an emotionally hurt one is simply stunning.
Some scenes gave serious goosebumps, like a thunder Scene. Some war scenes were glitchy as the Vfx used there could have been more visualizing. Those sequences had really poor animation but just for some glitches, a magnum opus could not be denied. Rajamouli proved his stand that why he took so much of time to make this happen. The entry scene of Prabhas was a classic.
Bahubali 2 is as big as the first one, maybe even better. A thoroughly entertaining action drama. Watch it for super amazing Prabhas and Anushka Shetty. A 4/5 for this magnum opus!
