Beyond the buzz

A visual extravaganza

The long queues at the ticket counters at both single-screen theatres and multiplexes were proof of the excitement and anticipation that awaited the release of ‘Baahubali 2: The Conclusion’. And when it finally arrived, it didn’t disappoint the legions of fans.

There were many theatres across the city that ran the first show as early as 4 am and the theatres were full. Most people who watched the first day first show of the film said that it was worth the wait. Sakshi Ragunath, a student, said that she had bunked her classes to watch the first day, first show. “My friends and I had saved money to go and watch the movie and we bought tickets in advance to make sure that we don’t miss the show. It was brilliant and exceeded my expectations.

I want to watch it again,” says Sakshi. Bhargavi Rakshith, however, feels that the film didn’t meet her expectations. “I don’t think the visuals were as good as in the first part. The level of creativity could have been raised a little more. The war sequences were not as grand as I expected them to be. Even so, it was a good experience,” says Bhargavi. She adds that the movie is rather long and lasts for over three hours. “Had the visual effects been a bit more engaging, the second part of Baahubali would have been a real treat to watch,” she adds.  

A die-hard fan of the ‘Baahubali’ series would never agree with Bhargavi, for they say that the visual effects in ‘Baahubali 2: The Conclusion’ exceeded their expectations. Rakshith Kare, a businessman, says that he is a great fan of S S Rajamouli’s films. “Baahubali 2: The Conclusion’ has some mind-blowing visuals, and every actor has portrayed their part with finesse and ease. I admire the dedication and commitment shown by actor Prabhas towards his role. He has worked very hard to build his physique for the film. Hats off to all the actors who have given us an exemplary performance,” says Rakshith.     

Those in the field of art like the way the director has played around with the visuals, the costumes and the makeup to deliver a product that is truly grand in form and content. Srijith K S, a choreographer, says that he loved the technical brilliance used in the climax. “The techniques used in the action sequences and climax are mind-blowing. We have got the answers to why Katappa killed Baahubali. The film has been explained and executed in a beautiful way. Even the women in the film have done a brilliant job,” says Srijith.
