The cast and crew, collaborators or even associates, no one had the chance of watching the movie. The censor board, however, has the privilege and one of the key CBFC members gave out some insight into the movie which can be considered as a review.
The CBFC Member said,
“Baahubali 2: The Conclusion is in every sense bigger than the first part of the film. The second part is longer than the first and is almost three hours. But not a moment sits heavily on the narrative. We haven’t cut a single frame, shot, or a word from the dialogue. There was not a single moment that we could eliminate. The action sequences are this time shot far more intricately and the special effects, especially in the war scenes are on par with what we’ve seen in the best Hollywood war epics from Richard Attenborough’s A Bridge Too Far to Mel Gibson’s Hacksaw Ridge.”
The CBFC source especially highlighted the confrontation scene between Baahubali and Bhallalla Deva (Prabhas and Rana Daggubati) and he described the scene as
“Heart-stopping, the two of them are like restless lions in a cage ready to pounce, but something keeps them from tearing apart each other, I can’t reveal what. Both the actors are equally impressive this time.”
On the much-needed suspense of why did Katappa kill Baahubali, the source said, “The reason will leave audiences “stunned and disbelieving”.
The member of CBFC is very impressed with the movie, he added,
“The stunts, the spectacle, and the performances are superior to Fast & Furious 8. Audiences will come away very happy, but also very sad. This can’t be the end of the Baahubali saga!”
Not just CBFC member, the famous critic from UAE, Umair Sandhu has also tweeted about the first half of the movie, here’s the tweet:
