Baahubali has become one of the biggest franchise of all time in India by now. Both the movies went on to become the highest grossing Indian movie franchise of all time and it doesn’t seem like Rajamouli is going to stop right here. Here is the review of Baahubali: The Lost Legends
On April 23 2017, Amazon Prime released an animated series named Baahubali: The Lost Legends ends which focused on the youth days of Amarendra Baahubali and Bhallaladeva as they grow up together training in various fields in order to be the next heir.
In this review, I have avoided spoilers as much as possible and mainly focused on the quality of the show. The story is in a quite similar to the movies. Baahubali is a brave young man who is honest and is loved by everyone and is gracious towards people. Bhallaladeva, on the other hand, was violent and tried to get all he wants by any means possible. He didn’t really care about the people much, rather he is shown as selfish and did everything he could in order to ascend to the throne. We also get quite a few new characters and some new stories which were not explored earlier.
Whenever we think of Baahubali, the first thing that comes to our mind is definitely the beautiful graphics, the astounding set pieces and mind blowing war sequences. If you expect the same from this show, there are chances that you might be disappointed. The animation is pretty decent, it’s not the best you have ever seen but can said in par with other Indian animated shows. But it is safe to say the storyline and voiceover work is definitely much better than the likes of Chotta Bheem or others.
The background music is pretty good and has quite an impact on the story. There aren’t any complicated dialogues, as it is primarily targeted towards kids, but it isn’t cringeworthy either because let’s be honest we have our share our cringe-worthy content in Indian TV Shows. If you happen to be a fan of the two blockbuster movies, then chances are you will pretty enjoy it. As for kids show it has quite a good message too as the lessons taught are about being brave in the face of hardships but also being gentle and kind to the people around us.
It’s ultimately a kids show with a much better storyline than what is offered by many other Indian animated shows. The sound, the voiceover work is pretty good and the animation is average and it will definitely be a good treat for die-hard fans of the movie.
You can stream the show in Amazon Prime as they release new episodes every Friday.
