Baahubali 2 review: S S Rajamouli does it better,...
Movie Name: Baahubali 2
Critics Rating: 4 / 5
Release Date: April 28
Star Cast: Rana Daggubati, Tamannaah Bhatia, Prabhas
Director: S S Rajamouli
Genre: Historical fiction film

Why Kattappa killed Baahubali? The answer to this million-dollar question is out. Baahubali: The Conclusion is here to give new definition to the Indian cinema and to raise the standard that the first part Baahubali: The Beginning set for films. Baahubali 2 is the beautiful painting coloured by the innovative vision of S S Rajamouli.

The movie starts with the flashback story of Mahishmati and takes you to the beautiful journey that you have never experienced before (not even in the first part). It tells you the backstory of Devsena (Anushka Shetty) and Sivagami (Ramya Krishnan). As it was quite evident from the trailer, Baahubali 2 is more grand and better than the first part in terms of visuals and along with the revenge story, this part explores the love story of Devasena and Amarendra Baahubali.

Prabhas as Baahubali is excellent but Kattappa aka Sathyaraj’s entry got the loudest applause.

Prabhas' larger-than-life screen presence will leave you spellbound but it was Sathyaraj aka Kattappa, whose introduction scene that got a rousing welcome. Prabhas gives life to Baahubali like no one else could. The actor played every emotion so well that we laughed, cried and made merry with him. Now, we are waiting for his Bollywood debut.

Sathyaraj as Kattappa is amazing and in some of the scenes he stole the show from Prabhas. The funny dialogues between Baahubali and Kattappa gave us a welcome break in this otherwise intense war drama.

Thumbs up to the star cast

Anushka Shetty looks beautiful in the film and totally different from the de-glam role she donned for the first part. Her chemistry with Prabhas is worth a mention. Ramya Krishnan is wonderful as Rajmata Sivagami. Rana Daggubati shines as villain and does justice to his part.Tamannaah Bhatia appears for few minutes in the climax.

S S Rajamouli’s has created a cinematic history

It was S S Rajamouli’s inventive vision that made the first part so magnificent that the expectations were sky high. But he bettred his cinema, he rose up to the challenge and how! The nearly three-hour-long film doesn’t give you a single dull moment. 


The music is peppy and the songs grow on you . However, some of the songs in the movie were not needed.

Baahubali 2 better than Baahubali

The beautiful elements of the film overshadow its few loopholes. Baahubali 2 is a cinematic gem and will not disappoint you at all. The movie is definitely better than the first part in all terms.
