Bahuballi is an Indian Gladiator,
it clearly shows the evolution of our animation industry. When I saw the
trailer of the movie, honestly I was not much impressed. I thought another copy
of Exodus-Gods and Kings, but when I went to saw the movie, I enjoyed it
immensely. No doubt, at times few of the scenes, will invoke a sense of dejavu. The
movie is epic historical fiction written and directed by S.S.Rajamouli. The
movie is made on the ambitious budget of 250 crore (thankfully, which they have
recovered) and will be released in two parts. The movie has been dubbed in
Tamil, Telgu and Hindi. The movie is treat to the eyes, it is spectacular to
The movie starts showing Sivagami
(Ramya Krishnan) being chased by soldiers, while carrying a baby in her arms.
She carries the baby above the water surface, while she is submerged in water.
Next morning, local villagers save the child while the Sivagami drowns, with
her finger pointing to the top. The child was adopted by Sanga and husband, who
name him Shiva.
One day Shiva (Prabhas) gets hold
of a beautiful mask, to discover the face behind the mask, he decides to go to
the top. The mask belong to Avantika (Tamannaah),a rebellious fighter. The
group is fighting a war against King Bhalla Deva (Rana Daggubati) of Mahismathi
kingdom. They want to rescue Devasena (Shiva’s real mother) who is imprisoned
by the king for past 25 years. The story further unfolds revealing animosity
between cousins Amarendra Baahubali (Shiva’s real father) and Bhalla Deva. The
rest of the movie needs to be seen, I don’t want to be joy killer.
There was one moment is movie
where Devasena is telling Kattappa (the king’s royal body guard) that my son
will come, strangely it reminds you of Rakhi in Karan Arjun “Mere karan Arjun
Ayenge”. In another scene where avalanche strikes them, it reminds you of the
movie-The Day after Tomorrow. Acting wise I was impressed by Sivagami, though Tamannaah failed to impress. Even the love story between Prabhas and her
started getting on nerves. The real movie starts after 35 minutes, when Prabhas
goes to rescue the chained queen. Nevertheless, let me not be that critical,
because overall the movie is good and worth watching.
Reasons to see the movie:
- It’s sheer opulence.
- The graphics
- Good and entertaining plot.
- See the screen presence of Sivagami
