Mihir Fadnavis | Hindustan Times: 4/5 | 8/10
The final scene of Bahubali reminds you that the tale will be concluded in next year's sequel. By the time the credits roll, you're left wishing it would come sooner ... Full Review

Karthik Pasupulate | Times of India: 3.5/5 | 7/10
The best part of the film is the elaborate war sequence that plays out in the second half. The ostentatious sets, breathtaking montage shots of the fictional kingdom, and the sheer scale of the battle scene stand out ... Full Review

Renuka Vyavahare | Times of India: 3.5/5 | 7/10
Touted as one of the most expensive films to be made in India, this highly anticipated part one of the two-part period epic, manages to enthrall you with its sheer scale and grandeur ... Full Review

Rajeev Masand: 4/5 | 8/10
It’s exactly what a blockbuster should be. Hugely entertaining, without ever being dumb. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed Bahubali given that I watched a Hindi dubbed version of the original Telugu film. Rajamouli is indeed a visual storyteller, and he brings the curtains down on this first part of his two-film saga with a curious cliffhanger ... Full Review

Baradwaj Rangan | The Hindu: - | 9/10
In the midst of filmmakers who think they’re giving us spectacle by going to virgin foreign locations and shooting mountains and flowers, Rajamouli gives us more… and more. This isn’t just about grandeur in visuals. It’s about grandeur in ideas ... Full Review

Shubra Gupta | The Indian Express: 4/5 | 8/10
SS Rajamouli's film holds out many promises: of adventure and romance, love and betrayal, valour and weakness. And delivers magnificently on each of them ... Full Review

Saibal Chatterjee | NDTV: 3/5 | 6/10
Scale of ambition: gargantuan. Quality of VFX: out of the ordinary. Content: only occasionally gripping. Final impact: pretty strong ... Full Review

Bollywood Hungama: 3.5/5 | 7/10
On the whole, despite having a first half that is rather slow, and a ballistic second half, a film like BAHUBALI makes you proud that an Indian filmmaker dared to dream big and accomplished it ... Full Review

Koimoi: 4/5 | 8/10
Be it the war sequences, or sword fighting; or a visual spectacle, or pure entertainment, watch Bahubali this weekend. Kudos to the dedication of S S Rajamouli and his leading men, Prabhas & Rana, for spending years putting this film together ... Full Review

Anna MM Vetticad | FirstPost: - | 7/10
Prabhas and Dagubatti are both in their elements as the warriors who approach warfare in two distinctive styles. The outcome of the battle is no surprise, but there are enough clever tactics and twists to keep the audience hooked ... Full Review

India Today: 3/5 | 6/10
In Baahubali, SS Rajamouli manages to break many rules even as he stays close to the formulaic path. The film has all the essential ingredients of a mythical epic ... Full Review

Sukanya Verma | Rediff: 4/5 | 8/10
The first part of the epic leaves behind dollops of rip-roaring entertainment to relish till it’s back to finish what it started in perhaps even more jaw-dropping manner. Rajamouli incites such confidence ... Full Review

Reuters: - | 7/10
The film, produced by Karan Johar and Anil Thadani, is an adrenaline rush, a spectacle of the kind we haven't seen from an Indian film-maker before and hopefully it is a sign of good things to come ... Full Review

Panos Kotzathanasis | Asian Movie Pulse: - | 10/10
You will not find many films more entertaining than this one, as you will be impressed, laugh, and spend 158 minutes without even realizing it ... Full Review

Rahul Desai | CatchNews: - | 7/10
I cannot begin to imagine what goes on in the expansive mind of S.S. Rajamouli. It's not often one sits through 160 minutes of an Indian period drama, and continues to sit hoping for the sequel to magically materialise on screen ... Full Review

Allan Hunter | Screen International: - | 8/10
A sweeping, breathless, gloriously overblown adventure yarn filled with marketable ingredients, from rip-roaring battle scenes to exotic landscapes, big-hearted romance to cliff-hanging suspense ... Full Review

Lisa Tsering | The Hollywood Reporter: - | 7/10
Although he isn't as well known to Hindi film fans as that other famously shirtless star Salman Khan, Prabhas has a presence grand enough to transcend language ... Full Review

Mike McCahill | The Guardian: 4/5 | 8/10
At each turn, the money's right there on screen, yet what's most striking is how these resources have been marshalled - to enhance, rather than clutter up, the narrative throughline ... Full Review

Nandini Ramnath | Scroll: - | 7/10
Rajamouli's emphasis on spectacle and grandiloquence doesn't blind him to the necessity of moving the story along ... Full Review

Deccan Chronicle: 3/5 | 6/10
Rajamouli has reserved all the grander and grandstanding for later, after interval. That’s when the film stands up and begins to strut like an epic. The battle scenes are monumental in scale and accomplished in detail, but lacked urgency and tension ... Full Review

Mid-Day: 4/5 | 8/10

Book My Show: - | 10/10
For the incomparable visuals, for the strong portrayal of women in several roles, for the chiselled Rana Daggubati and Prabhas who look good enough to eat; for the great battle scenes; for the captivating story line; and mostly for your own thorough entertainment. This movie is 100% paisa vasool ... Full Review

Sify: 3/5 | 6/10
As a director Rajamouli has grown leaps and bounds, his work is comparable with the best of talent in the world. His grip and mastery over visuals, VFX, and action episodes is exceptional. But he missed this time as he did not come up with a complete entertainer ... Full Review

Zee News: 4/5 | 8/10
This film is worth watching simply to bask in the future of what Indian epics can be portrayed as, if only someone like Rajamouli can have the courage to visualise it! Watch it – you would want to hold your breath for the sequel ... Full Review

IB Times: 4/5 | 8/10

Glamsham: 5/5 | 10/10
Epic is an underrated word, used to describe trivial achievements in today’s day and age. In Hollywood, epic is BEN HUR. In Indian cinema, epic can now officially be called BAHUBALI ... Full Review
