This movie takes you straight out of real life and places you in the midst of a fantasy land where people are seriously divided into the good and the evil. And with all the pomp and gaiety of wartime idealism, you have a new-age epic fiction that is here to stay. Talking of massive impact, there is also a part 2 coming up and if that hits the theaters this years, then we will have cinema goers not watching any other movie this year!

There is no mistaking the flawless homework done behind each character in this fictional story. You can relate to them and still can feel the other world aura in their personalities.

5. Sets and Props
Massive is the only word that you can have for the huge and beautiful sets used in this film. Whether it is inside or outside the palaces, the war scenes, the ocean and waterfall scenes, all the sets have been magnificent.

12. Armor Designs
An art that solely boils down to the efficiency of the technician in charge of creating these armors, most of the creative team spent last moment modifications to the armor, paint and accessories, even when the characters were wearing them and shooting.
Pleasant, gory, villainous, hideous…make-up challenges are a plenty in this movie…. name it and you shall have it. The make-up team have done a wonderful job on the artistes transforming them very convincingly into the characters that they play in the movie.
14. Camera Work
Strangest and daring stunts captured using highly efficient camerawork. Now that is something south cinema is a master at, ain’t it so?
