Summary : Baahubali 2 is a masterfully made sequel which is grandly conceived, brilliantly executed and largely engaging. Baahubali is back with more grandness and emotions.

User Rating: 3.19 ( 6 votes)

Easily the biggest Indian film of the year, Baahubali 2 is finally out for us to get entertained and take another trip to the magnificent world. An enthralling historical fantasy tale that shows how a royal family gets torn apart by sibling rivalry. This one is more extensive but is it as engrossing as the first part? Read to know more.


Baahubali: The Conclusion is the continuation to Baahubali: The Beginning. The film revolves around Shivudu, who in the pursuit of helping his love finds out about his royal familial ties with the legendary king Baahubali. Unfortunately, Baahubali was killed by Kattappa, Mahishmati’s most royal servant, Now Shivudu will avenge his father’s death, and fight it out with Bhallaladeva to take over the throne at Mahishmati.

  • Why Kattappa Killed Baahubali?
  • Did Mahendra Baahubali take revenge over Bhallaladeva?

 The plot of the film Baahubali The Conclusion revolves around these two questions.


Director S. S. Rajamouli seems to have quite literally developed a definitive masterpiece, with Baahubali seeming to be a thoroughly Indian film with its roots firmly planted in mythology, and yet progressive enough to refrain from the age old cliché of show good is more powerful than evil. In fact here a special mention needs to be added as Rajamouli has focused on developing the antagonist as a much more powerful personality.

Prabhas is a powerhouse of talent and gives you an impression that no one else would play Baahubali better than him. Rana as Bhalvaldeva is as menacing as ever and shines big time. Where Baahubali 2 could have been better would be its finish line. Here a special mention goes to both Prabhas and Rana, for some outstanding work. The other two supporting cast members Nasser and Satyaraj as Bijjaladeva and Kattappa are impressive as well.

The climax fight is the most expected scene of the film but however one wonders that could have been dealt better. Seeing too much of elder Baahubali, reduces the weight in Shivudu’s character. That is one reason you may not enjoy the climax as much as the 1st part’s ending. The background score by MM Keravani was great.  Technically the film is brilliant as expected.

Talking about the CGI used in the film, Baahubali 2 is easily comparable to the Hollywood.  Every 15 minutes, you would have one kickass sequence which arrests your attention.  No Indian storyteller comes close to what S.S. Rajamouli envisions and executes on screen. Writers Madhan Karky, Rahul Koda, Vijayendra Prasad and S.S. Rajamouli have truly written and developed a masterpiece.

Every sequence of Baahubali 2 is a marvel that can easily be compared to the best of Hollywood. The grandiose sets, VFX, sound, edit, cinematography and most importantly, the screenplay of Baahubali 2 is beyond fantastic.

On the whole, despite having a second half that is rather slow, and a ballistic second half, a film like Baahubali 2 makes you proud that an Indian filmmaker dared to dream big and accomplished it. Baahubali 2  is definitely not to be missed. Call it a box-office blockbuster today, but tomorrow, it will be remembered as a classic.

Minus Points:

  • Unconvincing War Scenes
  • Comedy Track In First Half
