Bahubali 2 Movie Review & Story Plot:
Bahubali 2 Movie Story:
Part 2 focuses more on the back stories of Amarendra Bahubali, Devasena, Sivagami and Bhallala Deva. Each of these characters are etched with completeness. As shown in the first part, Story starts off with flashback where Sivagami declares Baahubali(Prabhas) as the king of Mahishmati. Deep down in Bhallaladeva’s heart this did not go on well and tried his best to curb the throne through many means.
As part of the kingdom’s ancestral ritual, the would-be king needs to visit the countryside to know what problems the people in his kingdom are facing. In this process, Baahubali visits a small kingdom called Kuntala and falls in love with its princess Devasena (Anushka).
He meets Kumara Varma in Kunthala kingdom, who is the brother-in-law of Devasena and thinks that Devasena loves him. Devasena doesn’t have parents while she lives with her brother and his family. Day by day Devasena gets closer to Baahubali.
Meanwhile, Bhallaladeva starts talking ill about Baahubali with the Queen Mother Shivagami (Ramya Krishna). He starts wrongly telling her that Baahubali has joined hands with the Girijans and is looting the kingdom. Shivagami too comes under his influence.
Baahubali woos Devasena with his charm and brings her to Mahishmati. But, Shivagami changes her decision suddenly and announces Bhallaladeva (Rana) as the king. The rest of the story is about Why did Shivagami suddenly announce Bhallaladeva as the king? Why Kattappa kill Baahubali?, what happens to Anushka and her newborn son, who finally takes over the kingdom. To know answers to these questions, you need to watch the film on the big screen.
Movie Analysis: True to the hype the film is a complete visual extravaganza and succeeds in transporting the viewer into a bygone era of kings, queens and palace intrigue. The conflict between Sivagami and Devasena is written beautifully. The war scenes are a highlight in the film. The suspense that held a nation gasping for two years is revealed wonderfully. Dialogues are good. More than half of the first half is devoted to the romance between Amarendra and Devasena which was etched beautifully in a lighter vein.
Need not mention, production values are top notch and are quite evident in every frame. All the grandeur and magnum things aren’t so easy to get ! The movie’s Cinematography by Senthil is one remarkable thing. Each frame looked so perfect and flawless!
Background music and re-recording by MM Keeravani is unparalleled and multiplied the impact in a lot of key scenes. Four songs come in first half and one song comes in the second half. A couple of songs from the first half are repeated. Background score was at another level.
Costumes design by Rama Rajamouli and Prasanthi is elegant. Editing by Kotagiri Venkateswara Rao is good. But, runtime appears lengthy. Action sequences are excellently choreographed. VFX by Makuta is very good, but not as fine as part 1. They were some eye-grabbing scenes!
