Easily the biggest Indian film of the year, Baahubali 2 is finally out for us to get entertained and take another trip to the magnificent Mahishmati. An enthralling historical fantasy tale that shows how a royal family gets torn apart by sibling rivalry. We saw only a bit of the core plot in the first edition. This one is more extensive but is it as engrossing as the first part? Read to know more.

If you are looking to know 'why Kattappa killed Baahubali', we think you are peeping into a wrong window. This is completely a spoiler free review. But if you ask us how exciting is that twist, we would say, some would have guessed it right, some may not have but Baahubali 2 has much more than just that.

Labeling this movie just as a visual wonder would be wrong as Baahubali franchise has a lot more that needs to be celebrated equally. It has some good emotions, fights that could compete with any international standard, a gripping screenplay that keeps you hooked right through and majorly a powerful revenge script filled with adequate mass moments. Every 15 minutes, you would have one kickass sequence which arrests your attention.

The film starts off with a few conventional scenes. Then there comes the love story between Prabhas and Anushka which is packed with an interesting twist. It has a consistent screenplay in the first half. Comedies and dialogues work better in the first half. The second half is more serious and that is where the core script unfolds but it does hamper the pace of the film and the 2nd half might not satisfy the huge expectations bestowed upon the film.


Sathyaraj's humour sense was used wisely by SS Rajamouli and his performance has deepened in this part. Ramya Krishnan proves she is the best cast for Sivagami's role in Baahubali delivering the powerful emotions that come naturally with her experience. Anushka has a meaty role here and she looks so perfect for it, however, there are a few continuity issues as few of her scenes were shot way earlier. Anushka's weight plays a spoilsport but you may never notice that because the screenplay is tight and it does not let you deviate. Prabhas is a powerhouse of talent and gives you an impression that no one else would have played Baahubali better than him. Rana as Bhalvaldeva is as menacing as ever and shines big time. Nassar's role as Bijjaladeva to drive Rana's master plan is done with ease and scores big with dialogues delivered with elan.

Where Baahubali 2 could have been better would be its finish line. The climax fight is the most expected scene of the film but one feels it could have been dealt better. Seeing too much of elder Baahubali, reduces the weight in Shivudu's character. That is one reason you may not enjoy the climax as much as 1st part's ending. Baahubali 2 will work better for the Telugu speaking people compared to the other language viewers as it will connect emotionally well with the native audience.

The songs are a delight and so is the background score. Technically the film is brilliant as expected. On the whole Baahubali 2 is a masterfully made sequel which is grandly conceived, brilliantly executed and largely engaging.


Verdict: This sequel makes Baahubali the best ever historical film franchise of India


3.5 5 ( 3.5 / 5.0 )






Review by : Behindwoods Review Board Album Release Date : Mar 27,2017

Singer: Daler Mehendi, M.M. Keeravaani, Mounima
Lyricist: K. Shivashakthi Datta, Dr. K. Ramakrishna


Saahore opens off fantasizing Baahubali. It has been sung by Daler, Keeravaani himself and Mounima. Mounima pleases the listener with her voice and the song takes a melodious course after starting off as a percussion dominated song based on one character. Both violin and percussions have been used well. The trumpet that lingers in the background adds beauty to this grand number.

Hamsa Naava
Singers: Sony, Deepu
Lyrics: Chaithanya Prasad


Hamsa Naava, exclusively written for Anushka's character by Chaithanya Prasad is a song that gives the listener a very soothing feel. Sony and Deepu have delivered this track very well while MM Keeravani has yet again proved his mettle with creating subtle, yet grand music. The song's level is lifted by the drums while there is a very tenuous usage of strings in the background.


Singer: Kaala Bhairava
Lyricist: M.M. Keeravaani


Dandaalayyaa with the vocals of Kaala Bhairava is not of a single genre. This complex song is a pleasant yet commanding number. With superior vocals, orchestration and the bgm that plays in the trailer featuring in this song, it is a feast of instruments, chorus and vocals blended well. The chorus portions are deep and are extremely convincing. Dandaalayya is Keeravaani’s feast for
Baahubali 2 and takes you into the world created by Rajamouli just through the music.


Kanna Nidurinchara
Singers: Sreenidhi, V. Srisoumya
Lyrics: MM Keeravani


This is a lovely classical folkish melody, convincingly rendered by Sreenidhi and Srisoumya. There is an efficient usage of the guitars and the Flute with the folk beats given priority in the hook. The Mridangam and Tabla give the song the perfect base. Keeravani's great experience and knowledge about how to take the track forward is very explicit.


Oka Praanam
Singer: Kaala Bhairava
Lyricist: M.M. Keeravaani


Oka Praanam, the highly positive sounding number sung by Kaala Bhairava has very interesting use of beats. It has minimal usage of vocals and is more of instruments. The violin takes the front seat, while the chorus falls in during the latter half. A proper situational number by the composer.



Verdict: It's yet another grand feast from composer MM Keeravaani for this extravagant Rajamouli sequel!
