The big day has finally arrived. For nearly two years, the nation has been waiting for 'Baahubali 2' and as there are many unanswered questions in the first part. The SS Rajamouli directorial, which has Prabhas in the roles of Amarendra Baahubali, Mahendra Baahubali and Rana Daggubati as Bhallaladeva, has hit the theaters. Read on to know if the film has lived up to the expectations.
In a nutshell, 'Baahubali 2' is all about the rise of Amarendra Baahubali, his love story with the queen of Kuntala Kingdom, Devasena, why Katappa Kills Baahubali and how Shivudu aka Mahendra Baahubali avenges the death of his father by waging a war against his uncle Bhalladeva and thereby occupies the throne. What is the equation between Devasena and Sivagami, what are the sins committed by Sivagami would be interesting. We can't reveal much as we don't want to spoil your movie watching experience.
The cinematography is stunning. KK Senthil Kumar has done a fabulous job. The war sequences were shot excellently and they look far better than the first part.The VFX is very sophisticated. MM Keeravani's background score is one of the biggest strengths of 'Baahubali 2' like all of Rajamouli's movies. The screenplay, especially in the first half is very gripping. SS Rajamouli once again proves that he is a master storyteller. His visualization is in another level.
Audiences will remember Prabhas's performance as Amarendra Baahubali for a long time. His look, screen presence and his performance are absolutely amazing. He is royalty personified in the movie. Anushka, who appeared a deglamorous role in the first part, looks very beautiful in this part and her performance stands out. Rana Daggubati is menacing as he was in the first part. Ramya Krishna, Nassar and Sathyaraj are at their usual best. Subbaraj gets to play a comic role.

'Baahubali 2' lives up to the expectations. The film has a better story line compared to the first half and SS Rajamouli deserves huge round of applause for taking Indian cinema to a new level with this movie. He once again proves that he is a master storyteller. The way he visualized some of the scenes is unbelievable.Technically, the film is on par with Hollywood movies. Prabhas stuns with his performance as Amarendra Baahubali and Mahendra Baahubali. Anushka is amazing too. The big question, "Why Katapa Killed Baahubali?" was answered well and the way Rajamouli has narrated the story till that point is brilliant. The first half is brilliantly narrated. The second half is very good too but for some sequences.The face-off between Mahendra Baahubali and Rana Daggubati is outstanding. Both of them are a treat to watch. All in all, you can't simply miss 'Baahubali 2'. Take a bow Rajamouli.
