The excessively generic pool of horrible film tropes
I must start with applauding two things that this movie has shown us. Firstly, we like overpriced but useless things (case in point, our obsession with Mercedes). Half the crowd that has seen this movie has done so to see the "extravagance". Secondly, we must appreciate the promotions. While we see the obvious success of Prabhas promoting this movie using Tropicana, we are left to wonder whether we should have Rajnikanth promote Heinz ketchup for his next.
This movie is rife with references (all unintentional I hope). A chariot scene that has the technological advancement of a "Ben Hur" parody from the 70's. Slow motion sequences that look like the leftovers of the puke-worthy drama in "300". To round it all up, a script that is reminiscent of the "lion king" trilogy (archetypal).
This movie is the bane of Indian cinema. It is deeply saddening to see the Indian cinema industry fall so hard on its back. Maybe this movie should be given to us, Film students, as a crash course on what not to do when directing a movie. Despite all intents and purposes, you will leave the theater not comprehending the general lack of the two and a half hours you spent there.
The only thing this film reminds us of is that of the tale of "King Solomon and the spider". Rajamouli is the spider, who will not give up despite his many failures. The crowd that watches this movie and hails him as a God, just ask yourself this. How dare you put him on a pedestal that worships people like Orson Welles, Frank Coppola, Charles Chaplin, and even the great Indian Guru Dutt.
