Trivia

Bahubali's advanced booking in a single theatre-Prasad's IMAX in Hyderabad accounted for around 1.2 crore. That's almost equal to 200,000 USD even before the release. See more »

Goofs

The edge of the rope which is released from the hands of Bhallaladeva is initially not thick enough to get stuck to the stone. But once it falls down from his hands, it's size increases. (Baahubali catches Saketa scene) See more »

Quotes

Sivagami: The merits of a King are evaluated not by the number of enemies he has killed but by the number of his own people he has saved. During the battle Bhallaladeva's focus was only in vanquishing the enemy. Baahubali, while killing the enemy also managed to save his subjects. That is the difference between a soldier and a king.

evidence for improvement in standards for Indian cinema
10 July 2015 | by sreekanthramoju1991See all my reviews

Just watched it and feeling spectacular, really the entire team worked very hard and result is visible in the movie. S.S.Rajamouli congrats to you and your team. There are some minor VFX error like jumping over the buildings etc., which appeared unnatural i hope they are rectified in part-2. I heard someone saying about item song, but it seemed to me like part of plan by the hero and it is apt .

Anushka makeup should have been better, Prabhas and Rana have done justice with their body and action.Not to be forget Ramya Krishna is terrific in her role as Satya Raj in his.The background score is terrific.Resemble 300 and Lord of the rings series, i would say this type of story line will definitely have similarity and which ever comes first will be praised. there are many goose-bumping moments. i enjoyed it through out the time.
