Ashdoc's movie review---Bahubali the conclusion

The only show in town , or rather the only show in India this weekend---S S Rajamouli's magnum opus 'Bahubali the conclusion ( part second )'....for it had hogged almost all shows and all screens at all multiplexes and theatres in the country....and it seemed all of India was streaming to watch the movie on sunday....for inspite of the enormous number of screens fixed for the film , the seats were packed to full capacity....And the owners of the multiplex were taking full advantage of the situation , for advertisements after advertisements followed each other prolonging the wait for the audience....when the movie finally started , there were whistles even from the uber cool and ultra sophisticated audience with whom I was watching the movie....yes , ashdoc brings you these reviews by watching movies in the best of places and among the best of people....

The movie begins with two onscreen giants ( Amarendra Bahubali played by Prabhas , and Bhallala deva played by Rana Daggubati ) locked in eternal rivalry over the throne of the magnificent kingdom of Mahishmati....and they soon become rivals for the affection of the princess ( Devasena played by Anushka Shetty ) of the kingdom of Kuntala too . And like always , it is the nice guys who are at the receiving end of injustice....for Bhallala Deva and his father ( Nassar playing Bijjaladeva ) hatch a plot to not only remove Amarendra from the seat of power but also finish him off....

Presiding over this mayhem is the queen ( Maharani Sivagami played by Ramya Krishnan ) , and taking part in all this not from the sidelines but right in the centre of it all is Kattappa ( played by Sathyaraj )....after all , he is the one who kills Bahubali---an unsolved mystery from the last film and a subject of countless jokes on whatsapp ; it would not be a exaggeration to say that many people had come to see the film to know why Kattappa killed Bahubali....

But behold the justice of providence....Amarendra Bahubali's son has been born and saved from the cruel fate planned for him by the villains , looks exactly like his father and has been named as Mahendra Bahubali....he has come to avenge the death of his father and the imprisoning of his mother , and he has come with his future consort ( played by the gorgeous Tammanah ) ; the battle royale is about to be fought....

The first one hour does drag a bit---some incidents and acting during this period is not too convincing and not too serious....but as the interval approached the audience was bombarded with heart thumping music that aroused the senses---the movie had begun to pick up real momentum at this point....

In the second half , the movie does develop into an engaging story . Again as the climax approached , the movie seemed to stretch a little too long and I was waiting for the final battle to begin . As the final battle ended , once more the bombardment of heart pounding music that electrified the senses....if you want to enjoy it fully , see the movie equipped with Dolby atmos sound as I did .

The final battle however is not as well showcased as the battle between the armies of Mahishmati and the armies of barbarians that was shown in the last part . The battle in the first part was truly equal to Hollywood in standards . This time , the final battle was not so great in scale and not photographed with such exquisite skill .

So does S S Rajamouli's effort pay off ? Yes , in the final analysis it does . For the movie is still far grand than anything that has been filmed in India so far . The grandeur of the vast palaces , the perfection of the weapons used for war , the scale of the monuments in the city , the inventiveness shown in filming the individual fighting scenes , the size of the animals like elephants and oxen , the richness of the clothes worn by the royals---all speaks of super extravagance . Acting is decent enough , colours of the film are good , songs and background music are hummable , and the main characters seem like towering figures on the silver screen . 'Bahubali' is truly the pinnacle of extravagant cinematography .

Verdict---Good .

Three and a half stars .

Re: Ashdoc's movie review---Bahubali the conclusion

to add to the above review---

One thing about the movie is it's unabashed trumpeting of hindu identity and culture , something that Bollywood has been remarkably squeamish in showing . Statues of Ganesha , Shivling , and Krishna regularly adorn the film . The story itself has parallels to ancient Indian epics like Ramayan and Mahabharat , with Bijjaladeva playing the role of Shakuni and Kattappa playing Bhishma like role . The reason for this is that the movie is produced by Tollywood , which is free from the influence of the Karachi based mafia that controls Bollywood . Thankfully at least regional cinema has some pride left in our culture !!

Kath-mullah KRK bashes no doubt, perhaps for these very reasons,.. [ Last time, he had also said,.. If Modi can be elected as a PM, I will leave India ]

#जहाँ करण जौहर,महेश भट्ट व राम गोपाल वर्मा,लीला भंसाली की आँखें चौधियाई हुई है,आमिर,सलमान व शाहरूख कौमा में हैं...इस अधोलिखित मुल्ला का फटा साफ दीख रहा है।
#भारतीय सांस्कृतिक मूल्यों को स्थापित करती ये फिल्म बाहुबलि मुल्लों,वामपंथियों व सेकुलरों को साफ बौना कर गयी है...निगल गयी।

#कालिदास,वाणभट्ट व भास के स्वप्नवासवदत्त की सुगंध की परम्परा की अद्वितीय परम्परा...कल कल छल छल करती सरिता...वैदिक मंत्रोच्चार के लय पर झूमता परिवेश...सबकुछ शाश्वत...भारत की फिज़ाओं में कूकती महकती ।
#ये नमूना मुल्ला कितना ओछा व छोटा है ये पता चलता है।दाऊद इब्रिहिम के वाय-प्रोडक्ट पर अचूक सांस्कृतिक आघात है ये बाहुबलि....तिलमिलाना स्वाभाविक है।

Re: Ashdoc's movie review---Bahubali the conclusion

Daaktarji, Your review is exactly how I felt of it - Magnificent, Resplendent, Ornate - never seen before. But a touch lower in battle scenes vis-a-vis the first part. But what it lacks is made up with the story in this part.

Did you also think that Rana D should be applauded for accepting the negative role and doing it with full conviction? Not many of his profile would accept a second fiddle negative role. Of course, Prabhas has also done well. Anushka's acting is praised a lot but I did not see much scope for her to act.

Yes, madrasi actors are too cowardly to make such quotes. They are black and pimply... and thus cannot make such quotes.

gult co-worker says Mahesh Babu is silent guy, not in the habit of making statements or controversies.

I keep hearing that Karan Johar was involved in distributing the Hindi version. I wouldn't be surprised if some of the Bahubali's financial gains don't make it's way across the border

I watched the movie last night. Tickets were $15, and they were not accepting movie passes bought in advance (from Costco, etc.). Had a blast

I heard, Telugu version had its tickets priced as high as $40 in some Bay Area theaters for some shows

No wonder that,......
