Baahubali 2 – The Conclusion – Movie review

The most awaited conclusion of the Baahubali released this week , with around a whooping 8000 screens . Baahubali’s second installation continues with Kattappa narrating story of Amarendra Baahubali to his son Mahendra Baahubali. Awaiting his coronation, Amarendra is sent to tour the kingdom learn the current state of his people by Maharani Shivagami. Accompanied by Kattappa , Amarendra visits most of the kingdom and lands in the kingdom of Kuntala. He meets princess Devasena( Anushka) and falls in love. When Bhalladeva learns about this, he finds a way to manipulate this situation to his advantage and claims the throne. Even after claiming the throne he finds only Amarendra in the hearts of his mother and in the people of the kingdom. Soon he finds a way to kill Amarendra thru Kattappa and imprisons Devasena. How Mahendra Baahubali finds himself an army and fights Bhalladeva and becomes the King of Mahishmathi is the rest of the story.

While Baahubali the beginning had more action and was glorified in selling an idea, the conclusion has more content and story. All The characters were portrayed very well in the story and all the way entertaining while being predictable. This part was well dominated by Anushka and Ramya Krishnan who portray the two powerful women in the film. Rana too had a significant screen time and was powerful in his role.Satya raj too had a balanced screen time with Prabhas . Prabhas delivers casually and yet powerful throughout. Music and VFX were top notch once again mesmerising the audience all the way. At every stage the music lifts the spirit of the film and in the audience. Vfx team lead by R C Kamala kannan elevates the film on every frame and makes CGI seamless, the best we have seen in Indian cinema till date. Rajamouli and team have delivered an epic called Baahubali and made a mark in world cinema. I give it 7/10

Thozha – Movie Review

image
A story of how a social misfit Seenu( Karthi), and a paraplegic millionaire Vikram ( Nagarjuna) mend their broken lives which were crippled by their past.Seenu who has been disowned by his family, is a petty criminal who has just come out of prison on parole. He is looking for a jobs which will show him as a social worker and get him a permanent release. Vikram a multi millionaire who has become a paralysed neck down after a paragliding accident, is looking for a caretaker. In world which sees him sympathetically , he chooses Seenu who looks at him beyond his handicap. How both their lives changes during this period, and how they help themselves is rest of the story.
Though a remake of the comedy drama “The Intouchables” , Thozha has its own flavour which makes it a feel good film for the whole family. Both Nagarjuna and Karthi carry the film in a smooth path. Karthi with his casual presence and improvement in comedy timing makes him a good choice for the role. Nagarjuna who has to use only his facial expressions for the role,shows his experience as a seasoned actor. Tamanna role was that of a glam doll and was kept to a minimum. Kudos for the team for binding the film with values rather than cheesy commercial elements.The strength of the film was also the weakness, as after a stage in the film you are left with same kind of melodramatic cloud which never comes down pouring.The audience wait for a change in the momentum , which never seen happens. Bgm plays a huge part , but the songs are dry and doesn’t work . Though the team manages to pull it off by decent but a predictable ending , duration of the film spoils the show. I give it 5/10
