Baahubali, the name is sufficient to imagine a legendary story in a splendid and larger than the life environment, right? Of course, thanks to the success of two movies in the series made by Mr. S S Rajamouli. The movies were appreciated largely and they have changed the way people are looking at the SFX and VFX, especially in Indian Cinema
The love and affection shown by the people for all the aspects of Baahubali series, including but not limited to the story, the characters, the presentation,… opened many ways of creative opportunities for the makers. From roping famous author Anand Neelakantan to explore this fictional tale as per his imagination to various Baahubali merchandise to making the set of this film a tourist spot to… well, the list is quite long :).
While the first book in the series The Rise Of Sivagami got positive reviews, the second book is unfortunately not out yet.
Mr. Rajamouli teamed up with Arka Mediaworks and Graphic India, to bring an animated show, targeting kids and young adults – Baahubali: The Lost Legends. And, despite getting disappointments from the viewers for its graphics quality, the show got a “warm welcome”. And, so far 5 seasons of the same are released on Amazon Prime Video, a leading online streaming platform.
Let us continue our quest to share our views and find what lessons can be learnt from this series.

Life takes unexpected twists and turns, and probably that is what makes it worth living and enjoying.
No one wants to welcome sad situations or unwelcomed wars, but we often find ourselves in such tricky situations where we need to flex our mind and body and find a unique battle. And when you look at it afterward, you may see you have conquered new horizons, expanded the boundaries of your abilities and earned more confidence and satisfaction.
These are the thoughts that appear in my mind while watching this episode.
It revisits how Baahubali and Aakanksh found themselves in the middle of the desert. While they need to survive in the scorching heat of the Sun, they have many more challenges to face. They were captured by the wanderers of the desert who were looking for soldiers to fight a battle the next day! And, they were not on a talent hunt or taking a campus interview and offering a “package you cannot refuse”! They simply enslave the person they find and makes him to fight the battle!
And yes, they don’t provide high-quality weapons to fight. Actually, they know that the battle is to be fought to lose!
Baahubali inspired the untrained people and elders to fight the battle and he fought with all his might, power and tricks. And, he was able to turn the face of the battle, as they started winning. The opponent (Who is he? Well, we skip answering it to avoid spoilers) played his dirty games, and,…
When you believe in yourself, you can do unimaginable things and even inspire others to do so. Wise people admire qualities in opponents and make them their friends. Baahubali also earned a new friend!
But, where is Bhallaladeva during all these?
Will Baahubali be able to convince his new friend to help him find his brother?
And, we also come to visit an inspiring sad story of a warrior whose village was invaded, and he, along with many others captured as a slave. And, a slave’s life is worthless! No one cares for him/her. Many of the captives broke and even met with their death but he refused to accept defeat against circumstances and he eventually came out of the hell-like life.
But, in all these stories, are Baahu and Bhalla able to make any progress in their original mission (to find the truth of Dharmaraj)? And, what is the situation at Mahishmati as Dharmaraj is teamed up with someone who should not be trusted?
This episode brings in some interesting components of the stories together making it worth a watch.
The storyline is good. It conveys some important life-lessons in a passive manner. If someone wants to learn something, this episode is a nice resource for sure. You need to keep your eyes, ears and more importantly, your mind, open. The dialogs are first rate. They are simple yet effective. Overall, writers did a remarkable job.
Same we can say for dubbing artists. They are the real actors who acts through their voices. Their job is actually difficult as they need to make the animated characters alive. And, the only resource they can use is, their voices. The background score is fantastic. The composers worked hard to came up with pieces that can go in sync with scenes and dialogs. Overall, their tuning created a positive impact.
The fictional places are elaborated quite well. Not only the sketches but also the detailed elements are worth a mention.
However, I cannot say the same for animation. Of course, if you compare it with some kids special TV Series, you will find it almost similar. But, remember – Baahubali franchise – has raised the expectations of the viewers so much and they will compare it with SFX of the movies. And, when you do that, the characters and their gestures look poor and unconvincing.
Overall a nice TV Serial episode which conveys some important messages and life lessons. It is like exploring fables to get fun and learn something worthwhile.
