Movie Review: Baahubali 2 – The Conclusion (2017)

★★★☆☆
Box Office: Super Hit

Baahubali_the_ConclusionThe film begins with a refreshing recap of the major iconic moments from ‘Baahubali: The Beginning’ as the starting credits roll. Picking up the story from there, we are reintroduced to the kingdom of Mahishmathi in the times of Amarendra Baahubali (Prabhas).

Sivagami (Ramya Krishnan) is seen walking barefoot, her feet bruised,in the kingdom with a fire-filled bowl placed on her head as a part of the annual ritual during Raavan-Dahan.

Suddenly one of the elephants nearby loses its control and creates mayhem in the crowd. Asit is about to charge at her, we see Baahubali making his heroic entry. This scene of him taming the creature is nothing short of a spectacle!

Soon Sivagami orders him and Kattappa (Sathyaraj) to visit the countryside in the guise of commoners to find out the plight of the people before Baahubali’s coronation ceremony. The duo embarks on a journey which takes an eventful turn when our hero falls in love at first sight with the warrior princess Devasena (Anushka Shetty).

Meanwhile on the other hand, Bijjaldeva (Nassar) is fuming with anger after his son Bhalladeva (Rana Daggubati) is denied the Mahishmati crown by his biological mother Sivagami, who chooses her foster son Baahubali over him.

He devises a scheming plan with Bhalladeva to poison Sivagami’s mind. Soon in an unexpected chain of events, she crowns Bhalladeva the new king of Mahishmathi and banishes Baahubali and his pregnant wife Devasena from the royal palace.

What made her send away her beloved son? Will she ever see-through Bhalladeva’s evil intentions which has something more sinister in store? And most importantly,why did Kattappa kill Baahubali? How will hisson Shivendu (Prabhas) avenge his death and his mother’s sufferings at the hands of Bhalladeva?
