Prabhas starrer Baahubali 2 recently added one more feather to its cap as popular global rating website Rotten Tomatoes ranked the film as one of the best films of 2017 by scoring a perfect 100 on the Tomatometer.
The magnum opus has become one of the highest grossing films of all time and after getting a mention on IMDb’s best films of 2017, Baahubali 2 got another achievement to be proud of when the film was ranked the second best film of 2017 on Rotten Tomatoes.
S S Rajamouli’s epic action film broke all records in 2017 and grossed more than Rs.1000 crore worldwide in the opening week, which has not been achieved by any film so far.
But what makes the film’s achievements even more memorable is the fact that it was the only Indian film to get featured in the annual list of Rotten Tomatoes best films of 2017.
Baahubali 2 also scored 87 per cent audience score, which was an analysis of the people who rated the film more than 3.5 stars.
Along with the mention, the website wrote: “‘Baahubali 2: The Conclusion’ plays like a shotgun wedding between ‘Ben Hur’ and ‘Kung Fu Hustle’, seasoned with bits of Shakespeare, Kurosawa, and Buster Keaton. In other words, it’s a blockbuster that’s both gigantic and lighter than air,
The story of The Beginning was as simple as a fairy tale and as resonant as a myth, but with The Conclusion, director S S Rajamouli has cranked everything to 11; rarely have action sequences this gravity- (and logic-) defying been captured on film.
What separates this epic (which was a massive hit in India and within the South Asian diaspora) from its American brethren is its sincerity and optimism: its righteous titular hero (played by Prabhas) and his band of honorable men and women clash with scheming, corrupt bad guys, and it feels alternately old-fashioned and refreshingly bold. It’s the kind of film that reminds us why we love going to the movies,”
Well, that’s indeed a proud moment for both the film and the country.
Directed by S S Rajamouli. Baahubali 2 featured Prabhas, Rana Daggubati and Anushka Shetty in the lead roles.
