inspiration is right word. If avatar makes it you call that innovation? Why such hate? Everyone start some place or other and evolve. You build on someone else's innovation and add your own. I drive my car am I copying? The car company copied Henry ford ? WTF are you talking? If someone invented green screen technique on CGI no Indian should use it but only Hollywood is allowed to use be it avatar or Jurassic park? The story here is 100% Indian. Where is the copy? It's just hate talk. Byomukhesh bakshi did wonderful graphic work and you might say it's a copy so you should denounce it. Had it been made outside India say Pakistan made it then it becomes wonderful 8 th wonder for you, right?

I say it's new never attempted in Indian film history on the contrary. Every one of last 10 years are full of shit formula of song dance fight love sentiment percentages with no room for technical values or richness. This movie took 3 years to make. Unheard of Indian history. Respect! Budget is unheard for local regional language. Respect. 200 Crores? A lot of guts! Thousands of actors staying in year long camps? Respect. Care for kingly time period movie costumes places etc? Respect. Local regional movie reaching international standards for the first time in 50 years? Respect.

So now movies are being respected for amount of money spent on them, rather than content?

Mughal-e-Azam in its time, was on a massive budget. Sets on such a grand scale that had never been seen before in Indian cinema (Aan came closest). While everybody got wowed over by the sets, it was not copied from Hollywood. Nor was the content copied - it was totally Indian. And that, when we didn't have technology like we have today.
THAT was effort.

Today, with tech available, I don't rate any films which focus too much on visual effects. This film looks more like desi version of LoTR + Rome + whole lot of other gladiator type films.

Regional or non-regional is secondary.

Which part of bahubali you say is a copy?
WTF are you talking?
Film is not yet released for gods sake.
STFU till movie is released!
Yes. If a movie breaks barriers being first of its kind in regional language for that market it sure deserve respect.
It's like saying Sania Mirza does not deserve respect based on her rank !!!!

I am saying exactly same thing about bahubali.
How many of such movies are made in India for the past 50 years ?
None !!!!
That's one of kind first that's used in INDIA!!!
No INDIAN movie used graphics on such a grand scale is my point !!!!!!
It's a FIRST for India is my point.
It's story is NOT COPIED but entirely Indian is my point.
No Hollywood movie had the same script is my point!!!!
Where is the question of copy????
Graphics cannot be COPIED.
they are IMPLEMENTED. it's independent of the story.
You are saying as if someone uses high-tech western technology for some Indian movie it would automatically become a copy?
What kind of bullshit logic is that ????
On that coin, you should say avatar copied Jurassic park. Many movies after avatar copied it just because they also used green screen technology? STFU !!!!!
Try to enjoy life instead hating things just because they have some Indian element in it for an automatic hatred & venom.

I was in Tirupati where they released the audio. What a bloody circus. The whole town was snarled with traffic diversion etc. It was shown on tv live and I saw a bit of it (say 5 mins or so).. self patting was all it was about "I never said well done to my son today I am going to do it" etc etc.

Well hope it lives up to its hype. But I will not bet on it :D

For that matter every movie audio function of big budget movie in India is tamasha. They do it publicity so talk hyping & ask buyers to come and give lunch & daroo to all journalists to write good reviews as promotion. Only idiots go see them.

Saw bahubali on a big screen XD. WORTH watching.
Highly recommends esp if you have desi origins.
Best movie of decade from India ? May be.
Now I have super high tendulkarisque expectations for part-2.
Ps: downloaded/camera print copies sucks. 'Must watch in theaters only to enjoy it.

Am not planning to watch it.
Have therefore read some reviews (I don't read reviews of films I plan to watch).
Mixed reactions so far.

Everyone seems to be impressed by the VFX but not everyone is impressed by the narrative.
And I think women in particular are not impressed by the way Avanthika, who was essentially a warrior in her own right, gets "tamed" by the hero and becomes a showpiece. Besides, he takes advantage of her while she is asleep.

This is irresponsible, considering how tricky things are in Indian society already, between men and women.

Anyway, I haven't seen the film, so this is all based on just reviews I have read.

VFX, fantastic. Narrative...question marks.

Apparently there's a 45 min battle in the film? I would get bored after 3 minutes...can't imagine I'd ever be able to sit through 45 minutes.

thats bull crap. i saw the movie and no-one takes advantage while the other is sleeping.
nonsense.
On other hand its the heroine that drug the hero and leave as she has to go on a dangerous mission.
Dont be a fool by talking about a movie you have not watched yourself and do false propaganda.
reminds me of someone in CF that posted Buddhist monks killing Muslims etc and raja you are no different.

How Bahubali’s Masculinity Porn Destroyed an Awesome Female Lead
Posted by: ladiesfinger , July 18, 2015

By Vivekananda Nemana

I just made up the term “masculinity porn,” but you know what I mean: all those physics-defying acts of flexing muscles, flipping cigarettes, starting explosions, twirling moustaches, kicking ass, and so on. Masculinity porn means the hero is not only an unstoppable fighter but also an infallible human being, virtuous in his manliness, constantly outsmarting foes and imparting elevated moral wisdom. And it’s porn because 1) the character makes no pretenses at realism and 2) you are still supposed to either want that guy or want to be that guy.

Sometimes, it’s awesome. Who doesn’t love all of Rajnikanth’s tamaashas? My eyes widen with joy when Jason Statham takes on an entire gang of international smugglers in a mechanic shed. And for the record, my favorite macho scene of all time, in any language, is an old Chiranjeevi clip innocuously titled ‘Horse under truck’ on YouTube. I’m a huge fan of action movies specifically for their cartoonish violence and tough-guy posturing (you’ll find some great examples here).

Prabhas-as-shivudu-in-Bahubali-02Enter SS Rajamouli’s Bahubali – the testosterone-heavy epic combining muscle men and waterfalls and Game of Thrones-meets-Lord of the Rings-meets-300 visuals, which dials up the masculinity porn to stratospheric levels.

We all know that it’s one of the most expensive Indian films ever made. It may certainly be the most ambitious. It’s inspiring memes like none other. And its poster (the image is from one of the movie’s first few scenes) shows the hero’s wet, rippling body as he carries a gargantuan *ahem* Shiva lingam towards a waterfall.

As is customary with highly anticipated releases in the south, fanboy flex boards covered Hyderabad in the weeks before Bahubali’s release, with full-sized action shots of Prabhas, who plays the film’s hero, and encouraging messages like “Best wishes 2 our Prabhas Anna.” Without exception, the posters also carry images of the said fans, who are almost always young men, their vacuous expressions indicating a steely devotion to either fandom or, I sometimes suspect, excessive masturbation.

Hero worship is of course commonplace in the south, where the biggest stars are revered for their godlike machismo (watch this video of fans watching the Bala Krishna film Legend). But the hype around Bahubali ensured the fan frenzy reached transcendent levels, with the actors’ workout routines going viral and fights breaking out at theatre queues. And Prabhas – who has about as much acting talent as a circus pony but who is, well, tall and jacked – has built a cult following around his virile, lady-slaying roles.

But action movies, however cartoony (unless, of course, we’re talking Mad Max: Fury Road), almost always indulge in the objectification of women, from Bond girls to item dancers. And Telugu films take it a few steps further: a common trope is the unapproachable heroine, whom the hero, cool as a cat in his shades and designer outfits, must aggressively woo. And since he is often portrayed as a rebel – a status underscored by his coterie of less attractive, risk-averse friends – he cannot approach her normally by, like, asking her out. Instead he repeatedly undermines her, pranks her, shows up uninvited at her home or office, or if he’s particularly sly, re-engineers the circumstances of her life (consider this scene from the 2012 Racha, in which the hero literally bets that he’ll win over the daughter of a mining don). The heroine’s increasingly agitated rejections are of no consequence, because some twist of plot – a dramatic rescue, a stirring speech – will inevitably prompt a change of heart. “No” is really an invitation to try, try again. The director Puri Jagannadh is especially fond of this construction, but so is Baahubali’s director SS Rajamouli – his college romance Sye and his recent blockbuster Eega both present such borderline harassment as funny, cutesy courtship.

The more “unattainable” a woman is – the more independent or glamorous, the more she strays from the good girl archetype – the more bravado in the hero’s pursuit, until she finally caves. Thus, the constantly reinforced message has less to do with love and courtship than with masculine men taming unruly women. Their voices and actual desires are all but irrelevant in this structure, as is any notion that love is an equally balanced thing. The heroic alpha male wins through constant pressure, sabotage, shows of strength. (Need I even mention the implications for real life street harassment and stalking?)

It’s no surprise then that Bahubali, with all of its rippling tough guy tropes, not only replicates this idea but multiplies it. The film, the first of two cinematic parts, traces the life of Shivudu (played by Prabhas), a barrel-chested young man raised in a tribal village, who travels to the seat of a powerful kingdom ruled by the tyrannical Palvaalthevan (played by Rana Daggubati). There, he discovers that he is actually Bahubali, the rightful heir to the throne, and that Devasena (played by Anushka Shetty), an imprisoned queen he had come to rescue, is his real mother. The movie ends with an extended flashback about how Bahubali’s father (also played by Prabhas) was crowned king over Palvaalthevan, while leaving the story of his downfall – and of Bahubali’s redemption, presumably – for the next chapter.

The movie has four major female characters, all of whom are ostensibly strong (although it comes nowhere close to passing the Bechdel test. Two of them only interact once, for about five seconds, and that too about the hero). Initially, the most compelling female character seems to be the female lead Avantika, played by Tamannaah. She fits the unapproachable trope both literally and figuratively: Avantika is a tough warrior who lives atop a treacherous waterfall and hacks away at enemies with her sword. She’s a trained fighter in an overwhelmingly male cohort, and a true warrior – unlike, by the way, the stubborn Bahubali, who grew up in a tribal village with zero military training.

But the pornographic logic of Bahubali does not allow any woman to leave as much as a shadow on the hero’s glorious masculinity. In a single, jaw-dropping scene, the film methodically sabotages a strong, feminist lead – and the idea that a woman could ever compete with the hero’s machismo. One night, as Avantika sleeps, Bahubali surreptitiously (and inexplicably) paints her arm with a flowery design that sharply contrasts against her battle-worn armor. She’s been chosen to pursue her life’s mission – to bring back her clan’s queen, imprisoned in the palace – but almost loses the chance when her chief notices the tattoo and berates her for frivolous “girlish interests.”

Furious, Avantika searches for the dolt who nearly derailed her. She attacks Bahubali when she finds him, but now – despite kicking ass just a few scenes earlier – her arrows keep missing their mark, while our hero cracks sexist jokes about how feisty she is. The music selection here is also important: it’s playful, and lighthearted. Avantika demands to know just who Bahubali thinks he is, but he replies with something daft like, “The question is, who are you?” She says that she’s a warrior. Baahubali knowingly shakes his head, jabs her chest and says, “But who is the woman inside you?” The question leaves her speechless.

And then – and Effing then – as Avantika struggles with him, Bahubali proceeds to tear her clothes off, and he has this goofy my-mother-loved-me-too-much smile on his face while the flirty, lighthearted score continues in the background. Baahubali strips Avantika, kickass warrior, down to red underwear, and paints her face (in lieu of makeup) with some berries and coal. She fights back until he pushes her towards a waterfall, where she sees her reflection (plus Prabhas’s creepy leer in the background) and has an epiphany: she never knew how beautiful she was until he stripped her of agency and painted her face with makeup.

Despite the extremely rapey events of the past two minutes, Avantika turns her adoring eyes to Bahubali, now the omniscient romantic, who explains that this was all part of the plan because he climbed a waterfall for her. Somehow, this excuse is sufficient for both the heroine and the audience. They make love.

The message here is clear: Dudes, if you harass a woman long enough, she will fall in love with you, and you will probably get laid. Ladies, if you choose to deviate from traditional female roles, you’ll always be inherently unhappy, and secretly, you’ll be waiting for a hero to save you from empowerment.

After they are together, Avantika slips away from her new lover to resume her mission to save the queen. She walks, visibly distracted, when she is attacked by royal guards. She’s unable to defend herself this time; the badass warrior who existed all of twenty minutes ago seems no more. Only Bahubali can save her, as if he grew stronger as she diminished. The transformation is complete: the powerful warrior has been reduced to the damsel in distress.

This moment also spells the end of Avantika’s important mission. Bahubali grabs her face, stares into her frightened eyes, and says something like, “You’re mine now, your mission belongs to me. Chal, I’ll go.” And we are supposed to believe that she lets him walk away without a fight.

Bio: Vivekananda Nemana is a freelance journalist based in Hyderabad. He’s working on a book about how tribal youth in Andhra Pradesh are negotiating global markets. He swears he actually does enjoy watching Telugu movies.

Bahubali new movie

Postby Going South » Sun Jul 19, 2015 12:31 pm

He sure is wrong. Just read comments.

Where is it mentioned that hero take advantage when she is sleeping?

Is it your own imagination?

He is a troll. When you have a millions glowing tributes in the media where every news reporter praised the movie one way or other a cunning reported would like to write a clever negative review to clickbait and invite replies so that his post get replies thus get famous let objectivity go to dogs. Amazing that you missed those thousands of good reviews bypassed all to reach a shitty review with a purpose. Whatever he say what happened to your own common sense? You take this guys word against thousands of other REPUTED journalists ALL OVER WORLD thus you spread to all others too? As I said earlier you are no different than those that forward mail of Buddhist monks killings Muslims as hate propaganda without knowing.

Do me a favor.

Go watch movie.

Come back here in CF.
We will discuss merits and demerits of that movie.

PS: every movie in the world can be written for a negative review. Lungi can write one for a you a hilarious one.
All movies are fantasy based movies. They are mostly unreal to give entertainment. If not they would be BCC documentaries without any over the top antiques. You also hate any movie that's unreal? You must hate superman, batman, etc superhero based movies ? You hate brucelee? Jason stathum? Arnold? Stallone? The list is endless. All movies have heroism. If you hate one you should hate all. You cannot be selective towards bahubali just because you are a Tamil guy in Telugu land and are jealous of one movie making it big worldwide hence pour venom.

I am jealous of a Telugu film making it big worldwide? :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: :lmao: :lmao:

Films which show sexual harassment as "fun" are praised because of their VFX - and if I object to this, I am jealous? :grin:

This is a HUGE problem with Indian films in general - has been for decades.

In the past, Indians didn't realise the harmful impact of this on society. But this is 2015 - I would expect Indians to have become more aware by now.

But no, if you think it is just fine - ok.

My comment has NOTHING to do with Telugu or any language film. I have the same complaint with Hindi films, Tamil films, any other film.

if not, I dont know why you posted that crap?

It all started with you saying "THAT BABHUBALI HERO RAPED THE HEROINE WHILE SHE WAS SLEEPING"

When this accusation pissed me off, you posted some other crap about this movie, which is true for ANY SUPERHERO MOVIE .

Just replace the name bahubali with SUPERMAN SPIDERMAN BATMAN or even KRRISH series and that review is equally true.

I am trying find reason for undeserving hatred, that too WITHOUT EVEN WATCHING THE MOVIE

Where was the word rape used? Please.. it is ok to be a fan even crazy fan but this is false allegation. Taking advantage is nor the same as rape.

Bahubali new movie

Postby Going South » Mon Jul 20, 2015 12:24 pm

I love it when it's not the hero but director and corporations that decide a movie fate and what the content and cast should be. Just like olden days.

I like it even more when a pissed off director when a old age hero still demand to be portrayed as college going teen making romance with girl of his daughter's age and the director one fine day decided and said I make movie without hero, let me make a house fly as my hero.
Unlike khans & kapoors of Bollywood , the movie bahubali run on strength of things unrelated to hero.

For small budget film if hero demand more than half of film's budget there is nothing left for making movie in terms of technicalities or sets or locations. Make hero unimportant. Make film demand a hero not hero demanding story & other things of a film.

That's what I like most about bahubali A trend setter that put today's hero's ass on fire!

Taking advantage while sleeping = rape.
Exactly that's what pissed me off.
It never happened in the movie is what I am shouting about.
When asked raja says he did not watch the movie In the first place. Pissed me off even more.
Moreover the movie is a periodic movie before gun powder is invented. So it's about 5-10th century AD FILM. the hero is from tribal land. The girl is also a cave living person of a rebel group that's in jungles. How do you expect romance between the two? Fine? Moderate ? Rocky? Director showed a direct approach. Ask for it. Declare intent openly. Hero laughs and express his love when heroine sword cuts and draw blood from chest all the time smiling. He knows he can kill/overpower. He shows proof his love by showing her face mask he following climbing a mountain that the girl did not believe at first and then realization dawns on her. I guess that's more than enough film reels on time covered for a side track on movie about war & macho heroism as main ingredient.

As you know the film is made in 3 languages namely Telugu, Tamil & Hindi. The sound tracks are different. The names of support cast for the movie is also different.
For example Rana's name in Telugu is bhallala deva where as its palvaalthevan in Tamil.
Any person who saw the movie would refer to the character in his native tongue while discussing the movie.
If I kept saying bhallala deva indirectly means I am a person of Telugu origins.
The review given above refers the characters with TAMIL names instead of Telugu names.
Go figure. It's a dead giveaway that the author of above review either saw it in Tamil and wrote review or is from Tamilnadu and saw it in Tamil.
Now this person says he lives in Hyderabad. 1+1. Somebody of Tamil origins has an axe to grind. Something must have happened. (Falling down stairs on his head over stairs come to mind. )

Here is cricket analogy.
If you are a long term fan of a country's team you get that emotional attachment. You praise when your idol takes a single. At the same time if a player underperform you scold. You ridicule them. You show anger and bitchiness. You earned that right being a fan. A fellow follower would understand and share feeling. Now if the same bitchiness & ridicule is shown by other team fan, you get suspicious. It's not welcome. He did not earn that right. They go in defense mode. If the perpetrator is a known offender it's even more irritating and annoying. It's a imaginary boundary one should not cross but only an honest and true to the core objective knowledgable person that speak from heart impartially is welcome to do such critique and all others are seen through suspicion. Everyone thinks that they are such holy sage but they are not. Definitely not raja ;) it's like commenting on a T20 cricket match you have not followed but do guesswork based on scorecard. It's not the same.

No it is most definitely not. Taking advantage means getting things your way.. could be theft or escape or murder or rape or any such thing.

Bah. I take them with pinch of salt. They just want to be different to make some noise & recognized. No movie is 100% perfect. No movie is above criticism. Anybody can find any scene and pass judgement as an expert. Dime a dozen. The bigger picture is that it's a well made movie. Everyone likes it. I saw the movie. My feelings AFTER watching movie is different from someone else. You don't need to follow a review blindly. See for yourself and decide. Maine pyar kiya movie ran for an entire year minting money but you can't guarantee that everyone like it. I don't like it. Lungi hates it. Raja might chuckle. I felt tortured watching moghal e Azam as its about a prostitute life story with holy man with impunity Asok Kumar. Raja loves it. But all the three movies are liked by millions is what counts. If you look for them there sure would be bad reviews about all the movies. Are all these reviews correct? May be. Are all wrong? May be. To each its own. It all boils down to personal interest. YOU. you see the movie and decide. An odd goofball review should not influence your judgement. Just like you cannot accept social norms of today applied to the time of moghal e Azam times, same coin, social norms o love making of today viz dating cannot be expected the time period of bahubali. Given a movie we all can write a awesome bad review or good review based on WHAT SELLS. Ask why these folks have no comments for hit movies from English cannon the barbarian or destroyer series or masculinity porns of Thor or superman or Spider-Man? Just because it's Indian you have rights to write freely. If it's based Muslim kings of India with same exact movie you would hear not a peep. Go figure.

To each his own.

Anyday give me a progressive film with average VFX than a regressive one with the greatest VFX in the world.

GS might disagree of course. We look for different things in a movie.

Of course. I went to see VFX only. Story acting etc are bonus.
You guys want to buy a camcorder went to a shop.
You need to look for video taking abilities only.
If camcorder A Has better bag and photo capabilities do you buy it over camcorder B that does not come with either but can take better video.
What would be your choice?

If you get my point, see the movie for its visual effects not some idiot's offbeat review or some stupid story.

We are not talking about same things there.
Do me s favor.
Go see the movie in theaters and come back here.
We will discuss.
If not, it does not make sense to try to explain the rainbow to a blind fella.

I refuse to spend money to watch regressive trash, however brilliantly it is VFxed. :-)
Such movies corrupt the minds of impressionable Indian men in the way they look at women.
Baahubali isn't the first, of course. Indian movies (Hindi and regional) have been doing this for years.
But just because it's been happening, doesn't mean it is right.

Time to introduce progressive thinking - and cinema is one place to start.

Movies are not a good place to learn about life lessons. It does not matter if the movies show a regressive mindset or not. Overanalyzing of movies to find underlying themes happens way too often and I think it is stupid. Movies are for entertainment, not for showing new sociological changes that need to happen.

Actually the story of this movie isn't anything extraordinary either. What is extraordinary about the movie are the graphics and visual effects, with regards to which this movie is a revolution in Indian cinema.

I saw the trailor you gave me and I can bet both my testicles it is gonna be crap to see monkeys flying around like supermen and do silly stuff.

Anyway I will watch it in movies as soon as medically fit for such activities and then give a revised opinion. Until such time I reserve the right to piss you off :D
