The entire nation is waiting with bated breath to see the second instalment of SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus Baahubali. With only 24 hours left for the film to hit the screens, the hype around Baahubali is crazy. While Bollywood’s big stars will get to experience the biggest cinematic extravaganza at the premiere tonight, it is the censor board that has had the privilege to watch the film before anyone else.
And a CBFC member spills the beans on the first-hand experience of watching Baahubali 2.
Calling it bigger and better than Baahubali: The Beginning, the CBFC member told the daily,
“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.”
Baahubali fans have waited for over two years to get the much-awaited answer to the most-asked question ‘Why Kattapa killed Baahubali’, and the member added that the answer will leave the audience “stunned”.
More than anything, fans cannot wait to watch the epic face-off between Prabhas and Rana Daggubati. And if the CBFC member is to be believed, the confrontation between the two is one of the most impressive scenes in the film. He adds, “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.”
The member added that Baahubali 2 definitely lives up to the expectations of the fans, and the film will put Indian Cinema on the global map.
“The stunts, the spectacle, and the performances are superior to Fast and Furious 8. Audiences will come away very happy, but also very sad. This can’t be the end of the Baahubali saga!”
