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.

Baahubali...(An Indian - Hollywood movie) Proud to be an Indian
10 July 2015 | by maheshdudeSee all my reviews

I have to say one thing before I say anything about this movie. This is my first review in IMDb. I have created the account today to rate this movie so that I can say to the world that this is our Indian - Hollywood movie. Baahubali is an Indian movie but the standards are equal to Hollywood. I am really surprised by watching Baahubali. I am not rating this movie according to visual effects, actors, music nor even story. I am rating this movie by considering all the things. I am eagerly waiting for the second part now.

Please do not add this movie into South Indian movie list. It is an Indian movie that stands on the top of the list. According to the story line everybody did their job well. I have to appreciate Rajamouli for his daring and dashing guts for doing a project like this one. He has set a new trend by directing this movie.
