One fateful day Sivudu encounters Avanthika (Tamannaah Bhatia) who is a master assassin from a rebel group that intends on crushing King Bhallala Deva (Rana Daggubatti) of Mahishpati and rescuing Devasana (Anushka Shetty). However despite Shivudu understanding nothing of it, he decides to assist the rebels in their cause since he is smitten by the stunning Avantika who tells him that she is sworn to protect Devasana, who is none other than late King Amarendra Bahubali's wife, Sivudu's mother and also Bhallala Deva's sister-in-law. Setting off on his journey to fulfill Avantika's duty, Sivudu moves towards fulfilling his own destiny as BAHUBALI and in process setting in motion a series of events that lead to the second chapter.
S.S Rajamouli is known as one of the finest film makers in India. He lives up to his reputation once again with Baahubali.
Rajamouli has come up with a very different story line. Writer V. Vijayendra Prasad deserve distinction marks for thinking up an engrossing screenplay which has masala for the audience and yet is not frivolous. Of course, the computer graphics, animation and visual effects are so phenomenal that the audience would stare at the screen in disbelief. The Tamil and Telugu film-going audience would definitely not complain but the Hindi film-going public surely will due to its plot line.
Rajamouli’s narrative skills are legendary. His direction is splendid, to say the least. Right from the concept of the subject to the scripting and to the execution, his efforts deserve distinction marks. Computer graphics, animation and visual effects are world class. Production and technical values are grand.
Cinematography is breathtaking. The editing should have been better as some section of the audience will find it boring. The music is average and especially Hindi version. An item song in the second half should have been avoided. Background score is terrificand lifts many scenes in the movie.
Actor Prabhas is splendid in all the two roles. He is so good in all the two roles that it is difficult to imagine anybody else playing the roles. His six pack body, warrior outfit, war sequences will prove his terrific histrionic talents.
Rana Daggubati as an antagonist is the highlight of this film. He seems to have gone in the skin of character completely. He has given the performance of his lifetime.
Anushka Shetty as Devasena delieverd a brilliant performance. Her expressions as a prisoner are fantastic. Actress Tamanna as Avantika looks beautiful and it is sure that , the youngsters will spend sleepless nights after watching Tamanna as princess.
Actress Ramya Krishnan as a doting mother and ferocious care taker reminds us Nellambari in Narasimha. Her performance took this movie to another level. Rest of the actors also acted very well.
Baahubali is a visual treat that has never been seen in India before. It is a land mark film in the history of Indian cinema. The original Telugu and Tamil version has the germs to become the biggest ever South Indian BLOCKBUSTER. Don't miss this Epic Adventure.
