Filmmaker S. S. Rajamouli has turned out a grand mythological epic with Bahubali, a fictional story set in the past and drawing from various archetypes and stylistic elements of Hindu mythology:
This big-budget production has been doing great at the box office, and has even attracted the notice of various foreign film reviewers. Like "300" or Peter Jackson's Tolkien movies, Bahubali features top-notch visual fx, along with spectacular battle sequences on a massive scale. It also features traditional moral themes of honour, loyalty and sacrifice. The enthusiastic audience reaction to this movie may potentially trigger a wave of mythological cinema epics featuring film industry musclemen.
Be prepared for a hefty ticket price, but definitely worth seeing - you get what you pay for.
