Baahubali Movie Review
SS Rajamouli’s much awaited epic movie of the year “Baahubali – The Beginning” (“Bahubali”) has got very good reviews from the movie goers at the premiere shows on Thursday night, 09 July 2o15
“Baahubali The Beginning”, which is is the first installment of of the two-part period drama “Baahubali”. The film story is about Shivudu, who is brought up in the forest and his attempt to find out about his real identity.
The film opens with the story of the mighty man Shiva (Prabhas Raju Uppalapati) who belongs to the royal family of Mahishmati kingdom, but due to a twist of fate, raised by a tribal family. Shiva and the kingdom is divided by a gigantic waterfall and in spite of a burning curiosity and several attempts, Shiva is not able to reach the other side. It is finally the lure of a beautiful girl, Avantika (Tamannaah Bhatia), that gives him the push and the courage to pass to the other side.
On the other side is a spectacular and imaginary world (aided by VFX effects) which is part snow, part green and part war-zone. No, let’s not let logic meddle with fantasy in this one.
However, the subjects of Mahishmati kingdom are an unhappy lot because their current ruler Bhallala Deva (Rana Daggubati) and his scheming father are mean and cruel. And this is where Shiva realises that he belongs here and he has an important mission to complete.
“Baahubali – The Beginning” will catch your attention with an interesting first 15 minutes making it a visual treat and picks up the pace towards interval.
While the second half is very engaging, the climax is extraordinary according to the fans who watched the film in the premiere shows.
The lead actors Prabhas, Rana Daggubati, Tamannaah Bhatia and Anushka Shety are the main highlight of the movie as they have given their best in their respective roles.
Prabhas is perfectly cast to play the larger-than-mere mortal, super-mighty Baahubali part. When this man with rippling muscles, admirable physique and twinkling eyes, picks up an entire ‘shiva linga’ to move it to a better place, or tears through thousands of enemy soldiers to straight get to their ‘senapati’, there is not a moment of doubt that he isn’t capable of doing all that and more. Rana Daggubati and Tamannaah are limited in their acting capabilities but fit snugly in the whole scheme of things. Accomplished actors Ramya Krishnan, Sathyaraj and Nassar give good support.
KK Senthil Kumar’s brilliant camera work and MM Keeravani’s music and background score are yet another highlight of this magnum opus.
