Everything about the period drama is set in medieval India and it appears larger than life—including the kingdom of Mahishmati, with its gigantic temples and courtyards, the landscapes comprising mystical waterfalls and mountains, and the epic battles.

The ace Telugu film-maker S.S. Rajamouli who made the Baahubali saga, the visual-spectacle that it is, visibly left no stone unturned to bring his brilliant vision to life.

The first part of this franchise was released in July 2015 while the second part, Baahubali –The conclusion, hit the screens on 28th April, 2017 and both the parts made sure Baahubali is one word that reverberates across India and is heard globally.




Baahubali–The Beginning, is and remains to be one of the top-grossings film in India, after Aamir Khan’s PK and Dangal. Everything about the period drama is set in medieval India and it appears larger than life—including the kingdom of Mahishmati, with its gigantic temples and courtyards, the landscapes comprising mystical waterfalls and mountains, and the epic battles. Ofcourse, all of it took a lot of hardwork and toil, months over and over of brainstorming etc.

India’s most expensive motion picture, Baahubali, owes its world-class special effects to a very young company. Makuta production house, which is established just five years ago.

It was the principal studio for S S Rajamouli’s blockbuster film, which consists of 90% computer-generated imagery (CGI) and graphics, with some 4,500-5,000 visual effects (VFX) shots. The project was slated for a two-part release, with the first film due on 4,000 screens around the world, including 200 in the U.S., in late July. Producer Arka Mediaworks has enlisted former Directors’ Fortnight topper Francois Da Silva to rep the movies at the Cannes market.



Like everyone else, I went to watch why Kattappa killed Baahubali, but there’s lot more to the film than just that. 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.

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. But if the truth be told, the film is actually deep, hard to ignore and difficult to forget. Watch it like a experience, as it is built like a dream!
