The Bahubali series is indeed a rare attempt in Indian Cinema. Never before have we seen a team spending 2 years to lay the ground work and another 5 years to complete the production.
Much of the credit for the success of this dream project owes to the visionary of the production house Arka Media and the veteran filmmaker S.S Rajamouli. If you need a perfect example for “hard work always pays off” don’t look beyond! If you are willing to push your limits anything is possible. There is a good old saying among storytellers. It is not ‘what you say’ but ‘how you say’ that matters. Bahubali just fits perfectly into this golden rule. As such Bahubali is a simple folklore story that is told well. Although he had a big team of technical experts to play with, Rajamouli didn’t forget the basic factor that drives a cinema. The storytelling!
It is important to note that all the technical finesse shaped up perfectly to magnify the essence of the story that is being told. There is a difference between a movie that is made exclusively for VFX and one that uses VFX to strengthen its core content. This is where Bahubali succeeds. The director, the VFX crew and the entire team deserves a huge round of applause for pulling off this mammoth project.
Due to its vast history, India in itself is a land of delightful stories. Just have a look at its history, myths and epics! They will never cease to amaze an individual even a thousand years from now. With the success of Bahubali, we now know that India is capable of delivering such amazing stories in the grandeur that they deserve. This might just be the push Indian cinema needed to adorn its global reach.
In other words……Bahubali Conclusion is just the beginning.
