A never-before experience I've had with this film is that I watched it twice with family in theaters, both times in full awe. It felt so incomplete until I watched it again! That's probably because, I watched it as a well-wisher for the first time who would want every scene to be good enough. And second time, I watched it as a freed-out audience who knew it was good anyway and the only job at hand was to enjoy every bit of it.
No spoilers ahead; only temptations!
When 'Amarendra Bahubali' proposes his love and bends his head down in a sweet gesture, when 'Devasena' steps into the boat by stepping over the shoulders of her love interest, when that last question is posed to Kattappa before he agrees to kill 'Bahubali', when 'Amarendra Bahubali' takes oath amidst his roaring people, when the ultimate punishment is given for molesting women, when the last words are said by 'Amarendra Bahubali' after stabbed, when the shivering hands touch another's feet in great shame, and so on times, I loved myself for being a follower of 'Bahubali' movie mania all throughout; loved the cast, crew and characterization of course.
Records set by 'Bahubali' will be eventually rewritten in time, but the whole experiential thing that 'Bahubali' made us go through will be remembered for a long time, probably forever.
Needless to say anything to those who have watched this movie already. But to those who haven't watched it yet, please watch both the parts, not because it's a stupendous hit now, but because you will love yourselves for witnessing larger-than-life characterizations. And, remember NOT TO JUDGE to enjoy the movie to the fullest.
Finest performances have been delivered on screen by the artists and off screen by the technicians including the director himself. Hats off to the guts of the producers; not to forget - they decided to do this picture when 'Bahubali' was just a script. Thinking through future is so important to conceptualize such humongous projects. Glad the team pulled it through successfully.
In the history of cinema, there have been very few movies which lived up to the hype and expectations. It's an absolute proud moment to the team 'Bahubali' that their master piece is one such a film which will stand tall in time.
Take a bow SS Rajamouli and team for the historical conclusion!
