Are you excited about Baahubali 2: The Conclusion? Take the IMDb Baahubali quiz, co-created with the producers of the franchise, to test your knowledge of the epic two-part series set in the Mahishmati Kingdom.
Two friends are searching for their long lost companion. They revisit their college days and recall the memories of their friend who inspired them to think differently, even as the rest of the world called them "idiots".
Badrinath Bansal from Jhansi and Vaidehi Trivedi from Kota belong to small towns but have diametrically opposite opinions on everything. This leads to a clash of ideologies, despite both of them recognizing the goodness in each other.
Baahubali is regarded as a Telugu movie even made bilingual. Consequently, the title too is regarded as a Telugu name worldwide meaning 'A man with strong arms' in Telugu. It also has a Tamil meaning - Baahubali in Tamil means 'A man who kills rationally'. See more »
Bahubali is essentially set in an pre-gun powder era (before 12th century). The Kuntala Palace was said to be invaded by Pindaris, but Pindaris do not have any mention in history anywhere before 18th century. See more »
I really liked baahubali the beginning. Though it was not great,it was a good movie. Now the second part came with so much hype that it was a one in a lifetime experience kind of a movie.
Let me start out by saying this movie is so far fetched from what the ratings say about this movie. Everything about the movie is over the top. Direction, acting, overpowering music, over use of vfx. It seemed like the director wanted to show that they threw a lot of money into every scene to make it look good. Good looks do not make a good movie. There are many illogical and unrealistic scenes that come at regular intervals that make the movie look bad. The vfx were so overused and were used at locations that did not even need them.
In short, the first half had silly comedy and the tempo gets better towards the interval. Second half of the movie starts out good with the story but very predictable as it progresses.
Overall Rajamouli might have increased the scale of imagination and money making with baahubali for telugu movies but he has a lot to learn about filmmaking from legendary directors like KV. Reddy, K. Kameshwara Rao,C. Pullayya, Vittalacharya who made great movies of this genre with limited budget and no graphics.
