It has been almost a year since we talked about Baahubali: The Lost Legends (Season 3). During this tough time when people are advised to remain at their homes, kids have time to do more indoor activities. Watching some nice and genuine TV Serials is definitely one of the good options.

Let us continue our quest to keep exploring the Lost Legends of Baahubali to see if they have resulted into a TV Series worth watching and prove to be a good alternative to remain indoors to beat the summer heat.

The Plot:

Obsidian Blades moves the story forward from where it stopped in the last episode.

We see Yamagni is a genuine friend to Baahubali and she is willing to do anything she can, to support him and his cause. He is shattered from inside due to his brother’s misdeeds. While she was unable to save her father, she wanted to do the right things now.

She wrote a letter to Baahubali about the future course he can take. She advises him to go deep in the west direction. There he shall lookup for “Lone Wanderer”. Of course, it would be challenging to find him but he can be their hope. Pursuing the “lone wanderer” to help won’t be easy for Baahubali and Bhalla, that’s why Yamagni sends a small golden elephant as a souvenir, along with the letter. She asked Baahubali to present it to the “lone wanderer”, he will remember Yamagni and will help them.

The situation at Mahishmati is getting worse. Katappa was ordered to imprison Sivagami by king Dharmraj! Bound to the throne, he has to do his duty! Of course, his loyalty remain always with Sivagami and he arranged Aakanksh to send this update to Baahubali.

Will Aaakanksh be able to find Baahubali and Bhallaldeva? Will Baahubali find the “Lone Wanderer”? Will “Lone Wanderer” help them? What about “Obsidian Blades”, what or who are they? Will Baahubali and Bhallaldeva find another trouble for them? Who is king Paramhans?

All these questions are better getting answered by watching the episode.

Views And Reviews:

The episode directly/indirectly conveys many important messages.

One of the best lessons to learn from this episode is the importance of genuine friends. It also re-affirms the fact that there are genuine people who do the right things for their friends without thinking about their own personal profit/loss. That’s why quality is important over quantity.

Also, one needs to always watch out for and be prepared for any danger. They don’t come to you by giving a warning. You need to remain alert and ready with the possible response. One needs to watch out his/her action, especially when in an unknown company or place. Sometimes, you may invite danger unintentionally.

When most of the TV Shows giving a high dose of adultery/melodrama/violence and other dark attributes, watching this episode brings in some positive messages. It should be watched for the same.

Of course, the story only cannot interest the viewer if the execution is not good. The animation quality of this episode may make you crave for a better version. The animated characters are like those we used to view even decades ago. Of course, if you just look at them from kids’ entertainment perspective, you may not have many complaints, but, when it is associated with the “Baahubali” franchise (which is known for its pathbreaking animation and SFX), it feels disappointing.

If you look into detailing, when Yamagni was writing the letter you see her pen moving on the paper, but the paper is still blank! No letters/lines appear on the page!

The dialogs are interesting. Rather than focusing too much on linguistics, the script/dialog writer has made them simple and superb. The way you see Baahubali and Bhalla appreciate the practicing soldiers, conveys a very important message – you need to appreciate genuinely, whatever is worth the same.

Amaram – kingdom of warriors and its traditions are explored pretty well. King Paramhans and his soldiers’ portrayal is highly influenced by that of “Greek” and “Roman” warriors and kings. The conversation between the king and the brothers is interesting. During the conversation, the impatient nature of Bhalla is exposed once more. Also, the way Baahubali decided to stand for his friend, is amazingly explored. The imagination used by the animators in exploring distant lands and set up there, is worth taking note of. The characteristics and beliefs of people of Amaram kingdom is reflected in the following dialog very effectively:

We don’t waste our resources on weak…

The background music is very much in sync. It multi folds the impact of the respective scenes.

Summary:

Overall a nice TV Serial episode which conveys some important messages and life lessons. If the animation quality could have been better, the effects of the episode could have been even better.
