Let us take a bird’s eye view to the plot of this episode – The Tournament Of Champions.
As we already know that various warriors from around the world are now gathered in Mahhishmati to participate in “The Tournament of Champions” with an aim to provide his/her own metal and win that prestigious competition.
We had already seen the personalities and attributes of each of them.
The episode starts with the reference to the tricky situation king Varaah has created. As he has declared that princess Yamagni would be married to the winner of the competition, Baahubali was desperate to win the competition. Bhallaladeva has his own intentions and so does the Pradhan Guru.
When Pradhan Guru was wandering in a late night he met prince Baahubali. Both of them have their own reasons to spend time alone and get mental peace. At the same time, they both need to keep their eyes and ears open for their own reasons.
We witness a very good piece of advice given to Baahubali by the Pradhan Guru. The essence of the advice was:
Often, the ruler needs to choose from the conflicting advises given by the brain and heart.
As the fate of many people is associated with the decisions made by rulers (or any other prominent figures) they need to analyse the bigger perspective always. Often, a good and genuine ruler needs to do something which is harmful to him personally but is for the greater good of the people.
Also pay attention to the same communication, where Pradhan Guru asks Baahubali that he has to fight in the competition to win for sure, but for what reason? To get Yamagni or to keep the pride of Mahishmati? One has to keep his mind clear about his/her intentions and goals.
The rest of the episode mainly focuses on the duels between various competitors, starting with the dual between Baahubali and Janaab Abbas.
The situation, however, goes complicated when the barbarians attack Mahishmati while the competition is going on. The safety of the commons and Royals are at stake now. And to their surprise, the barbarians came up with the deadly poison found in the flowers which were once remain protected by the Guru of Katappa!
What will happen now?
We can say for sure that this TV Serial is getting more and more interesting with each passing episode. There are more than one conflicts going on parallel and equal weight is given to all them. Now the bigger responsibility is there on the makers and especially scriptwriters to fulfil the raised expectations of viewers in the coming episodes.
The dialogs are first-rate and they include some wisdom proverbs and philosophical punches.
The real heroes of the episode are the dubbing artists. They have given voice to the animated characters so convincingly that you find them realistic. It is tough to represent various gestures and mood through voice only, but the artists make it happen. Almost each and every voice artist here deserves due credit.
The background music is the another important aspect which makes any animated TV Serial to become more convincing or can lead it to be a fiasco. The makers score a point here in terms of music as well. The background music makes the impact of various scenes multifold.
While we cannot talk much about the dialogs we love as otherwise there are chances to have some spoilers, we would suggest you to pay attention to the dialogs and you will surely enjoy them and will learn something from it as well.
The animation quality is quite good but below expectations, especially when a product from the team Baahubali is there. May be, we are going to witness better animation quality when the second season of the same will be aired.
