He goes to every remote village to know the problems of people and he comes across Devasena (Anushka Shetty) in a place called Kuntala and falls for her. He makes her fall for him and takes her to Mahishmathi kingdom with him to marry her and everything seems to be going fine. Suddenly, Sivagami announces Bhallaladeva as the king of Maahishmathi kingdom. The reasons of her to do so and why Kattappa killed his king Baahubali forms the rest of the story.

Cast and Performance

Prabhas is superb as Shivudu and Amarendra Baahubali. He is so convincing with his body and his mannerisms in action and war sequences. His macho avatar is the biggest advantage for the characters he played in the movie. Anushka Shetty as Devasena is gorgeous as well as ferocious. She completely owned her character and played it with intensity. Rana Daggubati, the man with evil intention and thoughts is terrific. He complemented Prabhas in action sequences and added the feature of believability. Ramya Krishna as Sivagami is of next level. Her body language, her attire, her diction and her expressions helped a well written character become a well conceived one. Nassar is in complete command over his role as Bijjaladeva. Kattappa aka Satyaraj is fantastic and he lived upto the expectations of his surprise role. Each and every character is well played.

Writing Department

Story is simple but Baahubali – The Beginning made the story much surprising and suspenseful. Screenplay is well written which makes audience glued to the screen and dialogues are situational and good.

Music composed by MM Keeravani is nice and Saahore Baahubali and Dhandalayya are instant chartbusters and are well shot. His background score takes the movie to another level and makes the emotions stick to the hearts of audience in the second half. His work is one of the biggest advantage that Baahubali posses. Cinematography by Senthil Kumar is superb and his visuals are grandeur to the level of Baahubali. Editing by Kotagiri Venkateswara rao is nice. Art department and vfx studios are to be appreciated for the work they have done to make the vision of Rajamouli come alive in a larger scale. War sequences are well composed by Peter Heins and they are eye feast for audience which are a lot better than Baahubali – The beginning. Production values are apt.

Verdict

Baahubali – the beginning is a biggest hit and much talked movie which also got a national award. The Conclusion which is also known as sequel of Baahubali is nothing less than that. First half begins on a high note and makes audience engaged from the title sequence itself and gives audience goose bumps with action sequences, well composed background score, well shot songs and well written screenplay. This half is unimaginable and ends in a very very interesting way with a never before interval block which can also be said as best interval block in SS Rajamouli’s career. Second half runs with emotional sequences which are much elevated by MM Keeravani’s interesting background score. Dandalayya song has been shot well and comes at the right place provide ample amount of goose bumps. This conclusion part has an interesting first half and emotional second half which connects well to the audience. Director SS Rajamouli is in the perfect timing and has written a perfect screenplay for this part to match the level of expectations and he has succeeded in doing so. To, sum up, This conclusion is not going to conclude it’s box office run with normal collections and is going to be the biggest blockbuster.
