How did the Actors Perform?
Prabhas has put his heart and soul into the film. He did justice to both the roles. Compared to first part there is more for the hero here, since he gets to play the guy with a golden heart. He carries the film on his broad shoulders. Anushka too gets to showcase the multiple facets of her acting skills. The valour she displayed in Arundhati, Rudrama Devi shows up here too.
However, looks wise both Prabhas and Anushka are not at their best. The fact that the movie took long duration to shoot also shows up with looks varying in many scenes. So, from Hindi market perspective though the records are shattered, both of them might not get any mainstream offers there.
Rana gets to play a very cunning role and fits the bill. He changes his dialogue modulation for the climax part which is not that effective. Both Ramya Krishna and Sathya Raj excelled in roles which have shades of grey. Subba Raju is the surprise package of the film and did well in an author backed role. Tamanna’s role is strictly equivalent to a junior artiste.
How did the Technicians fare?
Rajamouli is a visionary, and the rest of the crafts align to transfer the grandeur that he imagines onto the silver screen. As with the first part, the scale of the film leaves us spellbound and we could not help but admire the conviction of the director. For most of the technicians, the film is a prized trophy in their cabinet. Cinematographer Senthil, Fight master King Solomon, Art director Sabu Cyril – all were in top gear.
Keeravani didn’t churn out the best of the songs but he more than made up for it with his background music. Editing and story elements could have been better, especially in the climax part.
Release Date – 28th Apr, 2017
Super Telugu Take –
For most of his films, Rajamouli banks on the Adrenaline rush to entice the audience. This film has Grandeur+Goosebumps in abundance. The film has its loose ends but needless to say, its a must watch for every movie lover. Kudus to Rajamouli for making the Telugu and Indian industry proud. He is streets ahead of the next best director in Telugu now, only thing he could work upon is – increasing the repeat value of his films.
Super Telugu Rating – 3.75/5
We at Super Telugu, ensure that we don’t reveal the vital twists of a movie. That’s for the film lovers to enjoy in theaters.
