The film received highly positive reviews upon the release by the both critics and audience. The writer Hemanth Kumar from First post called it a Rajmoulis epic drama, rated it 4/5 and praising all the characters of the film that Amarendra Baahubali is easily the role of a lifetime for Prabhas and the actor brings a lot of panache to essay the lead character. And Rajamouli elevates Prabhas to a level where it's hard not to root for him throughout the film. Rana Daggubati is terrific as the tyrant king Bhallaladeva. The film explores sibling rivalry in great detail and Rana's confrontation with Prabhas is a delight to watch.
Perhaps, the biggest revelation in the film is Anushka, who delivers one of the best performances of her career as a rebellious, warrior princess Devasena. Ramyakrishna's Sivagami gives a high and rarely has there been a film where two female characters steal the thunder from the men around them every single time they come face to face. The others Ramyakrishna, Sathyaraj and Nasser live their roles to an extent that the next time you meet them in person, you're more likely to address them with their onscreen names in Baahubali than their real names.
