Rajamouli and his crew delivered a classic film with a magnificent performance form the lead characters Prabhas, Rana Daggubati, Tamannaah, Anushka Shetty, Ramya Krishnan, Sathyaraj, Sudeep, Adivi Sesh, Nassar, Prabhakar.Every frame,every scene, every sequence of Bahubali is an extraordinary.
Rating: 4.0/5
While the world sits up in anticipation of S S Rajamouli’s ambitious, 160 odd crore period — drama, it's got to be said that Baahubali is a film of queer contradictions. Technically, it blasts open the hypotheses of cinema and goes where few have attained earlier. There is enough here that will excite and beatify fans.
Rating: 4.0/5
Baahubali is NOT TO BE MISSED. Today, you may call it a BOX-OFFICE BLOCKBUSTER. Tomorrow, it will be remembered as a CLASSIC.This will stand as classics beside Paathalabhairavi, Maayabazaar

ll the actors do a competent job but Daggubati’s suave menace, Prabhas's charismatic energy, Sathyaraj's stony-faced enigma and Ramya's seasoned spunk stand out. A lot has transpired in The Beginning itself but how these characters will emerge when the story finally wraps up is thrilling to look forward to.
Rating: 4.0/5
Prabhas looks inconsistent in terms of looks and sometimes exhausted too. To be honest he was disappointing in bunch of scenes and covered it up well in some vital scenes. The love-track between Sivudu and Avantika was good having a Raghavendra Rao mark style. There is not much footage of Rana, but the movie sets the stage for a probably mind-blowing performance in the second part of Bahubali. However, his introduction scene was something special. Satyaraj also excelled as Kattappa.
Rating: 3.75/5
To begin with, Baahubali has got visual wonder. Audience can witness a graphical extravaganza and Rajamouli has raised the standards of filmmaking in India. Baahubali is said to be the first Indian motion picture and Rajamouli has lived up to the expectations.
Rating: 3.75/5
Baahubali will be extremely liked for its magnificent look, but will disappoint due to simple ending. The end is not so intriguing like that of a Lord of Rings or Hobbit films to wait for years for the next. Otherwise, Rajamouli has upped the bar of Indian graphics and war films, as he has almost matched the quality to Hollywood standards.
Rating: 3.75/5
On the whole, Baahubali is one film which every Indian movie lover can be extremely proud off. Right from the word go, this visual extravaganza treats you to some never before seen elements in Indian films. Prabhas’s stunning avatar as Baahubali, brilliant art work to some eye topping visuals effects, this film has it all. Genius director Rajamouli, should be lauded and supported for his dedication in taking Telugu cinema to the next level. Finally, if you ignore the predictable story line and keep your expectations in check, Baahubali is bound to entertain you big time
Rating: 3.75/5
If Baahubali is missed, your struggle to find the stamina of Telugu cinema might not be achieved again. It can undoubtedly make every Indian proud.
Rating: 3.75/5
Prabhas amazing and mesmerizing performance, Tamanna’s glamour, Rana’s terrific performance, huge war sequences, extravagant sets with Rajmouli’s beautiful screenplay makes this film a surely watchable one for every Indian. It becomes a Great experience to watch the film for the Indians all over the world. Don’t miss it.
Rating: 3.75/5
Overall Baahubali is a easy one time watch even with all the misgivings for the herculean effort taken by the team to bring it to us, the viewers. Keep the expectations in check and fulfill your quest for a grand visual epic wonder.
Rating: 3.75/5
I can say Baahubali is a Visual Wonder and its a Good Attempt. on whole its a decent film expect slow first half every thing is good .lets wait for Baahubali conclusion 2016
Rating: 3.5/5
Baahubali is a must watch for its grandeur and is definitely a movie to experience in theaters. However, in case of story telling it has nothing to offer as it has a beaten to death revenge drama as it's plot. The movie has its share of moments but the problem comes when you wish to watch a Epic from Rajamouli. So folks, set your minds free and fall in love with Baahubali.
Rating: 3.5/5
Baahubali has its flaws but still remains to be a classical wonder. The hard work of the team is visible in every frame, every one tried their level best to transform Rajamouli's dream in to reality. The two parts release seem to have a negative effect on the ace director at the end. But still the movie is watchable
Rating: 3.5/5
Ever wondered how you feel when somebody tells you during the interval to come back after 6 months to watch second half of the film. There are unfinished threads, unrevealed suspense and a greatest revenge to be taken. Though the film is good, just because film is ended without any completeness/roundness to it, it gave me a strange and incomplete feeling when I walked out of the theater.

Rating: 3.5/5
In any case Rajamouli isn't known as much for originality as he is for delivering an overwhelming cinematic experience. But we're afraid there's plenty that has gone wrong on that score too. There's got to be something wrong when the highest point in what is Telugu cinema's greatest war sequence is a minute-long monologue delivered by Prabhas, who sounds a little too shrill for his rippling muscles
Business Of Tollywood
Rating: 3.5/5
The script of this predictable story prepared by S S Rajanouli is very good.All the actors got involved in the roles and presented well on the screen. Anushka has no big role in this first part of Baahubali. The war scene which is lasted for about half an hour is very well presented.The waterfalls back drop in the starting half an hour is very catchy.Heavy graphic designs are treat to watch.The background music by Keeravani is excellent. K K Senthil Kumar over worked for the movie to present well the frame by frame scenes.The editing by Kotagiri Venkateswara Rao is good.He trimmed well the scenes.
Rating: 3.5/5
Overall, while the film has a feel good factor, the story and its visuals are heavily inspired by Hollywood historicals. Watch the film for being an Indian version of a grandeur film.
Rating: 3.5/5
Waterfalls touching the sky… Marvellous Palace of Maahishmati.. Stunning episode of lifting the hundred foot statue of Bhallaaladeva… And that Royal atmosphere sprinkled all over .. everything is made believed that it is real.
Rating: 3.5/5
When you are entering into the theatre to experience a magnum opus of Rajamouli, you certainly have a imagination of what Rajamouli can impress you. With a mythology oriented story, the director draws too many inspirations from Hollywood films and offers something that is not required and here he failed to connect the pulse of the audiences.
Rating: 3.5/5
On the whole, despite having a first half that is rather slow, and a ballistic second half, a film like BAHUBALI makes you proud that an Indian filmmaker dared to dream big and accomplished it. BAHUBALI is definitely not to be missed. Call it a box-office blockbuster today, but tomorrow, it will be remembered as a classic.
Rating: 3.25/5
Visually Stunning!At the end of the movie, you get a feeling that it has everything but something is missing. An unfinished movie experience, you’d feel certainly. Watch it for its visuals, Rajamouli’s technical wizardry only.
Rating: 3.25/5
First quarter drags at snail's pace while pre interval scenes are attractive. Rajamouli relived the war scenes. Prabhas, Rana though paled in dialogue delivery, attracted in other aspects. A visual wonder has been created by Rajamouli.Baahubali is a visual wonder.
Rating: 3.25/5
To start with, 'Baahubali' is visual feast from start to finish and there is no doubt about it. Whether its the eye-catching waterfall or the high-octane war scenes, You will be blown away by the visual grandeur and worth you ticket price no matter how much you had spend.
Rating: 3.25/5
Bumpy ' Beginning' with Spectacular Visuals.Bahubali is Rajamouli's weakest script to date! However it is visually mind-boggling that we could excuse some of its shortcomings. Wish Rajamouli comes up with a packed script in the second part. On the box office front, Bahubali - The Beginning will surely shatter the records irrespective of its weak points.
Rating: 3.25/5
A visual feast, 'Bahubali' is not Rajamouli enough. The Hollywoodish ending may well be a trendsetter, but the question is, are the audience ready for such one? A one time watch.
Rating: 3.25/5
respective of the word-of-mouth, ‘Baahubali’ will shatter all the records of TFI including First-Day/Weekend/Week. It already obtained $1 million in USA through Thursday premieres alone and Day 1 AP/Nizam share could be over Rs 15 crore. Revenues in Bengaluru will be on par with Hyderabad and around 125 screens have been allotted in Kerala. Dharma Productions helped a regional project receive wide release in North Indian circuits but the word-of-mouth could hamper the chances of becoming highest grossing dubbed flick ever. All in all, ‘Baahubali’ is a money machine and it sets the bar so high that people couldn’t even dare to compare its Openings with other films at least few years.
Rating: 3.0/5
Commercially, ‘Bahubali’ is all set to open for thunder storms at ticket counters. How far and how long will war episodes alone save this film has to be wait and seen. For more precision into the whole story of 'Bahubali,' be optimistic on Rajamouli to kickstart 'Bahubali - The Conclusion' because he left many threads open in this exhaustive first part.
Rating: 3.0/5
Bahubali is ‘Pride of Telugu Cinema’
The Hindu
Rating: --
As with previous Rajamouli films, there is the scope of a strong narrative but because the makers want the story to unfold in two parts, we can’t help feeling something is amiss. In part two, we’ll get to know more about different shades to each of the principal characters in the revenge drama. But Baahubali – the beginning falls short in its writing, in its ability to grip the viewer with its storytelling. The ‘once upon a time’ doesn’t hold attention when the film dwells more than necessary on the romance between Sivudu and Avantika. A needless item number takes the attention away from the two princes tracking down a spy.

    It’s true that filmmaking is no easy job. Especially when it comes to make a film of a high and grand grandeur. But, Mr S. S. Rajamauli has proved that nothing is impossible of Indian filmmakers, provided that they have the technology, actors and of course, a story that can make a film work. Baahubali The Beginning is a perfect example of this thing.

    From the very first scene, the film makes an impact on the viewers. As the film keeps unfolding, entertainment level increases. It can be said that what seemed to exist only in imagination has come to be true in Baahubaali The Beginning. It’s perhaps the first technically most brilliant film I have ever enjoyed on big screen ever in my life.

    All a result of excellent filmmaking.

    Coming to performances, Prabhas is quite energetic, and he fits in the provided roles. Tamannaah looks quite amazing and does very well and has a role never seen before. Anushka Shetty also does well in a little explored role. Sathyaraj does very well, as he has a good character and he delivers. Besides, Rana Daggubati also seems energetic in his character. Nasser, Ramya Krishnan and others too do their respective parts extremely well.

    A result of excellent performances.

    Coming to music, you get to hear a pleasant music,as a trademark of every film of Rajamauli. The type of romance you get to see in almost every Rajamauli film too is present here. The film’s every element is so good that you will end up falling in love with it.

    A result of pleasing music.

    Coming to action scenes and technical department, which are the main highlights of the film, the film scores a 100% in every context. There is not even a single scene where you will get a chance to blink. The war episodes, action scenes, from the beginning to the end, are really worth praise. It can be said that it’s another excellent film from the director who made Magadheera.

    A result of devoted and highly entertaining imagination.

    Coming to the story and screenplay, its here very well in the part 1. However, since its a two part film, you will have to wait for part two to find the entire story. But still, the way the film ends will leave you thinking what would be in the next part. But you will surely not forget this one.

    It’s also true that for watching the conclusion, you need to watch the beginning. It’s a good trend by Rajamauli sir to make films in two parts so that the viewers enjoy both.

    Overall, Baahubali The Beginning is a perfect, perfect and perhaps the most perfect film of Indian Cinema ever. It’s a sort of film that can’t be missed on the big screen. Besides, the part two will be coming soon in 2016. I am really unable to control my excitement and I have been thinking about it since the time I left my seat. It’s a sort of film that is truly great, amazing and good enough that you will be left stunned forever. Definitely a mega BLOCKBUSTER!
