Public reaction

The public seems to have given a thumbs up to the film. Here are some of the reactions from social media.



Critic reviews of ‘Baahubali 2’

Firstpost gave it a four star review saying, “Rajamouli takes us on a roller coaster ride which makes the burning question a footnote in the larger picture. Yes, everything in the film leads up to that moment, but the strength of Baahubali 2 lies in its characters and how far they can go for what they believe in. Oh, boy! There’s so much to love about the film, even though your mind tells you that you’ve already come across stories like this in the past. Its beauty lies in the way the story is told and Rajamouli knocks it out of the park yet again. If Baahubali : The Beginning gave us a glimpse of Mahishmathi, the second part focuses on exploring psyche of its characters and how clash of ideologies can lead to devastating results. Every expression, even if it’s a tear drop, is highlighted and the camera holds still to make us sympathise with the characters even more.”

Hindustan Times’ review reads, “Filmmaker SS Rajamouli has always claimed that what we saw in Baahubali: The Beginning was just an introduction to the Baahubali franchise. A few minutes into this epic saga, and one is left with no doubt that he was right. Baahubali 2: The Conclusion not only has all those amazing sets and spectacles that wowed us the first time, this one also packs in a lot more of drama and emotions. Baahubali 2: The Conclusion is a seamless continuation in scale and splendour of the first part, starting just where it ended. The story picks up from where Kattappa ended in Baahubali: The Beginning and begins with Baahubali entering to tame an elephant.”


NDTV’s Saibal Chatterjee however didn’t quite feel entertained by the magnum opus. Giving it 2.5 stars, the critic wrote, “Baahubali: The Conclusion is a film that is so in awe of its own grandiose canvas that it tends to lose sight at times of the need for tighter editing and more believable characterisation. Just about everything in the film falls prey to the lure of excess. It has several flamboyantly mounted passages that drift in the hope that the ‘magic’ of the visuals would be enough to keep the audience from noticing the over-indulgent strain.”
