Baahubali 2: The Conclusion Review (No Spoilers!)


This is the day when the most trended question has been answered that is "Why Kattappa killed Baahubali?". RIP to all those Kattappa-Baahubali memes and jokes which occupied my twitter and Whats App groups. On this auspicious day, not only Baahubali but even the director was worshipped in Tamil Nadu and Andhra by pouring milk. Let's not forget the white people from the west comparing Baahubali to Hercules, 300 and some marvel comics. The epic of S. S. Rajamouli has swept the nation, so much so, that even PM Narendra Modi couldn’t stop himself from making a reference to it during one of his speeches. So in the midst of all this, how was the movie? Without giving much of story I would say that Baahubali 2: The Conclusion has NOT met my expectation. Well! I predicted the story long back and it was 80% similar to whatever I thought, so I am not impressed.

The most part of Baahubali 2 is about Amarendra Baahubali (Mahendra Baahubali) and his marriage story is most highlighted. Not much about Shivagami Devi but she is the main person who decided everything including the murder. However, Shivagami Devi is a leader and it shows in both parts of the movie. Much like the first part, 2nd part also has a love angle and of course its difficulties but I feel S. S. Rajamouli has stretched a little because at the certain point you feel bored. 

The best part of the movie is cinematography and VFX, it is just above any movie you name it. Baahubali: The beginning was compared to movie 300 but Baahubali 2: The conclusion cannot be compared because of its amazing cinematography and VFX effects. The movie is done with point precision, but too much of heroism kills the movie Baahubali and of course, the predicted story was not that interesting. Even the battle between Bhallala Deva and Mahendra Baahubali has been reduced to not more than 15 minutes which kills the ending because the predictable clash should have been focused more.

Aslaam Khan: Nowhere to be seen in the Baahubali 2: The conclusion. However, there is some indirect reference or I could say that Baahubali 2: The conclusion did have Aslaam Khan's role but seems like Sudeep was busy. At a point when Mahendra Baahubali prepares to attack Mahismati, a warrior points out that he doesn't have so much weapon to support the fight. If Kattappa, didn't have many weapons then 'Aslaam Khan' who could have supported but somehow his character doesn't come anywhere.

Avantika: She might appear maybe 5 minutes that's all. I mean, her character is very less. So for all those boys who were waiting to see Tamannaah's dance, sorry boys.

Kalakeya's brother: Where was he in the first part? Kalakeya weirdos are back but without Kiliki language. 

Devasena & Subbaraju: They are from the kingdom of Karnataka. I don't know how many people would discover that but there is a lot of reference including 'Basava' bull. hope you got that!


Story - 3
Dialogues - 3
Music - 3
Direction - 4
VFX/ Special effects - 4.5
Cinematography - 4.5

So finally, Baahubali 2: The Conclusion is worth a watch and for entertainment purpose only. You can definitely continue the story by reading "The rise of Sivagami" which is sold everywhere with 10% off. 

So why did Kattappa kill Baahubali?
Go and watch it yourself!
