  • Although he isn't as well known to Hindi film fans as that other famously shirtless star Salman Khan, Prabhas has a presence grand enough to transcend language.

  • At each turn, the money's right there on screen, yet what's most striking is how these resources have been marshalled - to enhance, rather than clutter up, the narrative throughline.

  • I cannot begin to imagine what goes on in the expansive mind of S.S. Rajamouli. It's not often one sits through 160 minutes of an Indian period drama, and continues to sit hoping for the sequel to magically materialise on screen.

  • Baahubali - The Beginning is a film for the child in everyone, the one who wants to believe in heroes and derring-do

  • The film, produced by Karan Johar and Anil Thadani, is an adrenaline rush, a spectacle of the kind we haven't seen from an Indian film-maker before and hopefully it is a sign of good things to come.

  • [Baahubali - The Beginning] boasts of an interesting storyline and sterling performances by the lead actors. The film surely catapults Indian cinema to international levels.

    Too much style, not enough substance. But that's what I'd expected from a movie directed by Rajamouli.
