          Baahubali: The Beginning - Dubbed as the most expensive production in the history of Indian cinema made till now, this movie is worth watching on big screen for its magnum opus in graphics and photography, in epic war-scenes, historic constructions and some scenic locations. However, 'the beginning' does not generate much interest and also there are direction mistakes; too many, considering it took nearly three years and that too for one of the two parts. Unwanted commercial elements included and unnecessary stunts seem repeated. On some occasions, the logic or screenplay just pales out and falls stout. Not much care taken for costumes, songs and music for those; and many scenes are picked (or inspired) from famous foreign films such as Avatar, Die Another Day, Ice Age, Red Cliff & Troy. Nevertheless, a great effort to make on Indian screen appreciable for its grandeur mien. Ramya Krishnan does fabulous in her role and no scope for Anushka in this part on whole. Prabhas and Rana need to concentrate more on body language and diction apart from body and fabrication. Tamannah does mostly running and Nassar does better as cunning. Sathyaraj forms the link between the two parts by the end of one and Sudeep has got only two shots of too short length in this one. The overall experience of this movie with all the hype and wait along, gets shifted and lifted only by the second half and hopefully stays par and above in the second part next year. In my view; not a whole-hearted classic, but definitely a class apart.
