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.
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.
Rajamouli's emphasis on spectacle and grandiloquence doesn't blind him to the necessity of moving the story along.
A sweeping, breathless, gloriously overblown adventure yarn filled with marketable ingredients, from rip-roaring battle scenes to exotic landscapes, big-hearted romance to cliff-hanging suspense.
Has a 'been there, already seen in Hollywood' feel to it.
The final scene of Bahubali reminds you that the tale will be concluded in next year's sequel. By the time the credits roll, you're left wishing it would come sooner.
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.
Bahubali is truly an epic experience.
The best part of the film is the elaborate war sequence that plays out in the second half. The ostentatious sets, breathtaking montage shots of the fictional kingdom, and the sheer scale of the battle scene stand out.
Baahubali, despite its epic dimensions -- with a tendency to copy larger-than-life Hollywood heroic tales like Ben-Hur and Troy -- fails at some level to draw us into the narrative.
Too much style, not enough substance. But that's what I'd expected from a movie directed by Rajamouli.
