The Indian film industry has taken by storm like never before and the reason is none other than Baahubali – The Conclusion. To start with, it has crossed the first ever 1000 Cr mark in Indian currency (£120+ million), leaving behind movies like PK, Dangal, and Baahubali – The Beginning.
There have been numerous critic reviews where people have expressed how illogical the storyline is. However, they are the same people who acclaim Hollywood action movies, and those make complete sense to them! Well, Baahubali 2 is a visual treat and the grandeur can best be experienced in the theatre near you. It goes beyond just looking out for a story, which again is quite straight and expected.
Baahubali 2 continues the story that was left behind from the first part, and the introduction is absolutely mesmerizing. It gives you the glimpse of every important character we saw in the first part and is majestic in itself.
Kattappa (Sathyaraj) continues to tell Mahendra Baahubali (Prabhas) about his father, and the beginning briefly takes you through the war scenes that was shown in the end of Baahubali 1. It then unwinds the relationship between Shivgami (Ramya Krishna) and Amarendra Baahubali (Prabhas), and then moves onto how he meets his lady love – Devasena (Anushka Shetty).
There is a lot of comedy and romance to expect at this time, which certainly overdoes the level of entertainment from the first part. The romantic song (Veero Ke Veer A) is an absolute dream, which reflects the excellence of VFX.
The story slightly gets negative right before the intermission and there is tension among the characters. The coronation of the new king of Maahismati is another visual satisfaction, which you need to see to believe. The story moves onto Devasena expecting a baby, while the antagonists plot the death of Amarendra Baahubali.
Kattappa then reveals the answer to the much waited, “Why did Kattappa kill Baahubali?” The story then continues to relate to the first scene of Baahubali – The Beginning, where Shivgami rescues Mahendra Baahubali at the cost of her life.
After Mahendra Baahubali hears the entire story, it was time for him to declare war against Bhalladeva (Rana Daggubati). Yet again we see unimaginable war sequences between Bhalladeva and his nephew Mahendra Baahubali, while Kattappa rebels along with the residents of Maahishmati.
The end, of course, is inevitable – Mahendra Baahubali kills Bhalladeva and takes the revenge of his father’s death. The movie concludes with the coronation of Mahendra Baahubali as the new king of Maahishmati, and he swears to punish anybody who misdeeds the people of his kingdom.
Amazing Facts about Baahubali – The Conclusion
If you are still not convinced to watch the Baahubali – The Conclusion, we have some more reasons to give you:
- The movie was released over 9,000 screens worldwide and 6,500 screens in India itself.
- The cost of shooting the climax scene was highest ever, amounting to 30 Cr in Indian currency (£360,000). However, there were 4 climaxes created as director SS Rajamouli feared a leak.
- Both Prabhas and Rana went through tremendous physical transformations, where they had to gain over 100 kilos and then again drop down to their normal physique.

- This is the first Indian movie to release in 4K HD format.
- There were over 2000 junior artists working in this film.
- The protagonist gave 5 years of his life only to concentrate on Baahubali.
If you’d ask us to rate the movie, we wouldn’t go anywhere below 4.5 out 5. The 0.5 that we’d cut would be definitely because of some lame reasons like, we could see a little more of Avanthika (Tamanna Bhatia), we don’t know who was Bhalladeva’s wife and most importantly, if there is ever going to be Baahubali 3, it will not continue this story!
