Let us take a bird’s eye view of the plot of the episode.
The story starts from where we left it in the previous episode. Baahubali and Katappa both were in disguise and moving ahead in their mission to find the truth about the ship of Mahishmati which was captured by the pirates. The most important reason to find the ship were the weapons loaded on the shape. The weapon makers of Mahishmati has access to a very special metal which they used to create invincible weapons of Mahishmati. It gives the soldiers and warriors an edge during the battle. Now, if those weapons fall into the hands of pirates it will be a big blow for Mahishmati.
Baahubali was unaware with the fact that he was under watch by some spies sent by one of his deadliest enemy in the disguise of his well wisher. Well, those who watched the Baahubali movie series know who he is, so I rather skip naming him :). An assassin was hired to make sure that Baahubali shouldn’t reach back alive from the mission.
Eventually, Baahubali and Katappa were on a ship with Raaza and when they were in the middle of the sea, they were attacked by the pirates. we got to know that the Captain of the pirate ship was none other than the Kaala Khanjar!
While trying to save himself, Raaza drops one of the men of the pirate team, named Dhananjay into the water. Now, even the smallest members of sea-pirate team know how to swim, that shall never be an issue. The problem here is the sharks were present there! Baahubali was not convinced to kill anyone without a reason, and thus, jumps into the water. He successfully drags Dhananjay out of water and sends him on the ship, but, unfortunately, he himself was caught between a group of sharks!
There comes Aayesha, the only child of Kaala Khanjar, who is no less brave warrior then anyone else in her team. She jumped into the water and fought with the herd of shark along with Baahubali. As expected, they were succeed in killing all of them and return to the ship safely.
Impressed with the bravery and humbleness of Baahubali (aka Aryan in disguise), Kaala Khanjar invites him to join his group. Baahubali accepts the offer and insists Katapaa (disguised as Heera) should also be allowed to join him. Kaala Khanjar agrees and makes Baahubali an in-charge of one of his beloved ship named – Raftaar – which was the fastest ship in his fleet.
Will Baahubali and Katappa be able to trace the looted weapons of Mahishmati? Will they be able to save the kidnapped soldiers as well? Will the assassin be successful in attacking Baahubali? Was Bhallaladeva be able to befriend with Aakanksh and eventually make him to reveal all the important information about Baahubali, including his vulnerabilities? All these questions can get answered by watching this episode.
The scenes exploring the ships and the sea are really fantastic. Like the scenes of palace of Mahishmati, these scenes are very detailed and splendid. You will also love to see the scenes when the ships were sailing and the technique the pirate used to capture other ships. The island, which is home of Kaala Khanjar is made alive very effectively. If such splendid quality of animation was kept throughout the episode, it could have an unforgettable experience to watch it. The animators however doesn’t put much efforts in the exploration of various characters during their movement, especially, the gestures of all the prime characters while they are walking doesn’t look convincing at all. Also the top views when sharks are circling Baahubali and Aayesh looks amateurish.
In terms of exploring the characters and their attributes, the story tellers put in great efforts. The characters are strong and develops gradually. There is no weak character in the entire episode. You will love to explore the humble side of Baahubali, cunning side of Bhallaladeva, interesting nature of Kaala Khanjar, the rigid and brave Aayesha, and the playful side of Katappa all together in this episode. And, thus, it proves to be the effective time pass to get entertained.
The dialogs are not only simple and use day to day language but they contains depths as well. One thing however I cannot digest is the use of word Captain – कप्तान in Hindi – for the ship captain. Based on the time to which these fictional stories belong to. Probably a word like नायक could have done better. But apart from such minor stuff, which the target audience will not mind, rest of the things are quite in sync.
The wardrobe, ornaments, instruments, weapons, jewellery and other stuff is explored in thoughtful manner. The efforts put in for smaller details while exploring these stuff is visible on screen. The detailed exploration of the home island of Kaala Khanjar is another visual treat as said earlier.
In addition to entertain, the episode conveys some important messages also. It talks about human attributes and real problems. It also talks about the wrong things done by the authorities and how it affects the life of common citizens. Of course, humanity is the best quality, is the core message of this episode.
For any animated media, the dubbing artist’s work is a lifeline. Even if the visual representation of the stuff is convincing, if the voice over is not in sync, it fails to create impact. In this episode you can witness very convincing work by the voice over actors. All of them have used their voice at the best to make the characters convincing. It is tougher job then it may look from outside. Another similar factor is background music. It can make or break any scene. In this episode, the background music is in sync with the events explored, making them more impactful.
And yes, the episode ends at an interesting point, making you eager to explore the tale further by watching the next episode.
Shout you watch this episode? Well, yes, if you love to explore something entertaining and if you are a Baabubali fan, then definitely you will like it. I wish that the animation quality could have been better.
Definitely a worth watching episode. If a viewer want, he/she can take many life lessons from this episode. And yes, it is good at entertainment quotient as well. So, it is one of the best ways to beat the summer heat to watch it indoor :).
Watch out for our views for the next episode of the second season.
