Baahubali 2: The Conclusion: Amid strong buzz and expectations, Baahubali 2 released last Friday and got a massive response worldwide. The film has already broken all the box-office records and as per the latest figures by Bollywood Hungama, the Hindi version alone had earned over Rs 190 crore within first five days of its release. According to the Indian movie industry tracker Ramesh Bala, the movie has earned Rs 710 cr worldwide. However, even as most people are in thrall of the SS Rajamouli’s saga, somewhere it fails to live up to the hype. With a run-time of 2 hours 48 minutes and ticket prices that are guaranteed to put a hole in your pocket, you are likely to be left disappointed. Why? Well, here are not just one or two, but 5 reasons why it isn’t worth your time and money:

1. Slow first half

For those who found the first half of Baahubali: The Beginning slow, the first half of The Conclusion is a pain. A good 30 minutes of the movie could have been edited to make the pace better. There are many unwanted scenes and songs before the film finally picks the pace right before the interval.

Watch the trailer here:

2. Abrupt scenes

The flaws in editing are clearly visible on screen and make you wonder why perfection wasn’t achieved despite investing so much money. For example, when ‘Pindaris’ attack Devsena’s (Anushka Shetty) kingdom, in one scene Bahubali (Prabhas) was shown fighting with them and in the very next scene, he is inside a hall trying to save people.

3. Poor VFX

There was so much hype around the VFX of Baahubali that it was even compared to James Cameron’s Avatar. However, the film disappoints you on that front. The entry scene of Prabhas is a fine example of poor VFX where he tries to stop an elephant using a cart.

4. No logic

Given that it was a fantasy film, SS Rajamouli had the artistic liberty to do certain things but using humans as stones against sling to transport them inside a fort wasn’t the most logical thing to do – in fact, what was he thinking! Then, there is a flying ship along with men who somehow don’t even get bruises even after falling from heights.

Watch the making of Baahubali:

5. The Climax

While the first part will be remembered by the audience for its powerful climax that left everyone with one question, ‘why Kattapa killed Baahubali?’, the second had a comparatively dull ending. The action sequence didn’t have much thrill and the impact was missing.

            Chootiye, what review you have given. The film has surpassed 1400Cr collection. If people dont like the movie, from where we got these collections? Stop spreading non-sense. and dont misguide people.

              Are you kidding me? The plot was far better than the Bollywood produces...it seems like FT guy who wrote above review has some agenda here...this is the same reviewer who had an article led '5 Reasons TO WATCH Raes' (the Bollywood movie about some bootlegger swine...starring SRK)..

                    Instead of FinancialExpress, change it to KhanExpress, as you are biased towards shahrukh khan. Even Aamir and salman gave a good response on the movie. My suggestion is, please don't give reviews from now on.

                        This is perhaps the dumbest and the most stupid review I have ever seen or read about a movie. Raees had no story no acting but was praised by your writer. It's very clear that you are paid journalists. You are actually practising yellow journalism.

                            ARE YOU REALLY A KHAN PR MACHINE.. I BET A NOT AMIR OR THE GOOD FOR NOTHING SRK NOR SALMAN(WHO STILL NEEDS ACTING CLASSES WILL/CAN DO SUCH A MOVIE. WATCH rA1 TO REALLY KNOW WHAT LOW VFX IS. WATCH KICK, READY, EK THA TIGER TO REALLY KNOW WHAT"ILLOGICAL" IS, IF YOU ARE NOT TAUGHT TO RESPECT, AT LEAST DO NOT DISRESPECT. THERE WAS NOT DELIBERATE INTENTION TO RELEASE IN CHINESE INORDER TO RETAIN THE HIGH COLLECTION MOVIE. DEAR FE AND DEAR AMIR, BAAHIBALI IS YET TO BE DUBBED .. NOT STOP COLLECTING S FROM NO WHERE PROMOTING MOVIE LIKE RAEES AND RESPECT QUALITY,VALUE, DEDICATION, COMMITMENT, CREATIVE THOUGHTS, EFFORT AND MOST OF ALL QUALITY OF LIFE, CHARACTER. learn from south indian movie fraternity. They are terribly able noble and humane..

                                Just watched Bahubali 2. What an epic movie. Not one of these 5 things mentioned here came up to my mind when watching it. Everything in the movie is mind blowing. Editing, cinematography, direction, acting, pace, music, EVERYTHING is superb. 2000cr aaram se kama legi.
