As the self-proclaimed biggest fan of fantasies I have spent my years waiting for an epic fantasy film in Tamil. As I had set my standards with one of the most ambitious and highest grossing films ever, the Lord of the Rings series I had struggled to accept fantasy film attempts by any other cinema but Hollywood.
Today, I was pleasantly surprised when I went to watch Baahubali. A south Indian film which I watched in Tamil although it was primarily a Telugu based film. It was phenomenal!!! Ok I spent three hours practically fan-girling over the star, he looked perfect (for the role of course). The casting was fantastic, the best combination of actors possible participated in this film. Classic favourites of the era: Ramyakrishnan, Nasser and Sathyaraj working with Tammanah, Anushka, Rana Daghubatti, and Prabhas made my newest favourite royal family.
That’s besides the point, I wanted to congratulate the crew and production company for the amazing work they have done with regards to the cinematography. It was admirable and a work well done. The script was very well thought out and well portrayed. I am probably going to watch it again for Prabhas and Rana Daghubatti (just kidding).. 🙂
