The movie was everything I expected it to be: extremely well made and lavishly mounted. The story was absurd and the distance from reality was of solar proportions.
Being considered a front-runner for an Oscars nomination as well, the S.S. Rajamouli film has ramped up unprecedented global popularity.
It is a mystery why this flawed film was chosen as India’s entry to the Oscars.
S.S. Rajamouli’s latest lacks the flair of his 'Baahubali' and also has some problematic casteist messaging.
