With every element that is needed in a blockbuster - a hero, a villain, fight sequences, memorable songs, and a happy ending – will Baahubali 2 be as big and grand, invincible as the viewers expect it to be?

Top notch actors? Check. Incredible visual effects? Check. CGI as an integral part? Check. Big budget? Check. Strong plot? Check. SS Rajamouli’s much-anticipated Baahubali: The Conclusion – which has been on a record-breaking spree even before its official release – is all set to create an experience that will bring viewers into another world, again.

Considering the pre-release buzz that the historical drama has managed to create, Baahubali: The Conclusion has proved that it isn’t just another Southern film which has been dubbed in multiple languages. Instead, it has earned the reputation of the biggest pan-Indian film which has won applause from people across the world.

For those who haven’t watched the first part, here’s a quick flashback. The film began with Shivudu (Prabhas) being rescued by his formidable aunt (Ramya Krishna). On realising that he is the son of the king Amarendra Baahubali (Prabhas), Shivudu makes an earnest attempt to reclaim his heritage. He also falls for the feisty Avantika (Tamannaah Bhatia). The flashback in the prequel included shots of Amarendra’s queen Devasena (Anushka Shetty) and his life as a prince in the royal family of Mahishmati along with cousinBhallala Deva (Rana Dagubatti) Part one managed to leave an indelible impact on the viewers with its well-choreographed and incredible moments. Prabhas and Dagubatti were convincing as the warriors who had different ways to handle a warfare. But the biggest surprise that kept the audiences hooked was the final shot wherein Katappa(Sathyaraj) killed Baahubali.

Ever since the trailer has been released, the viewers have been discussing the epic scale of the story of the concluding part of Rajamouli’s fantasy adventure. The fact that the conclusion releases after two years of wait, the viewers are undoubtedly excited to know the reason why Katappa killed Baahubali. But there other interesting questions also that viewers will get answers to like - who plays Bhalladeva’s wife? Why did Sivagami give her life to save Mahendra Bahubali? What’s the reason to keep Devasena captive?

With every element that is needed in a blockbuster - a hero, a villain, fight sequences, memorable songs, and a happy ending – will Baahubali 2 be as bigger and grand, invincible as the viewers expect it to be? Divya Pal is watching the first day, first show of the film to get you all the answers.
