There's no point in making an animated series that serves as a prequel to the movies. To fulfill this purpose, the makers should have rather gone with a Box Office release. The dull moments in it are all about showing the grandeur of Mahishmati and Bahubali which the audience has experienced innumerable times by watching Bahubali movies on a loop. We are time and again shown Bahubali fighting with the evil ones and the repetition irritates you at some point or the other.


The first episode is about Bahubali saving the Kingdom of Mahishmati from unnecessary attacks from Garud states. Though Bahubali's intelligence amuses the audience the action scenes make you disappointed.


The second episode is about Kattapa being sent into exile by Sivagami after he failed to protect her precious son Bahubali from enemies. His failure to save the life of the prince cost him his direction of life. Now he roams around in taverns drinking alcohol. One day while he was out for a similar expedition, he came across men humiliating the daughter of the owner. Kattapa intruded and beat those men mercifully. Carried by their group leader, Kattapa is brought to the enemy camp where Bahubali too is being kept.


Bahubali, our dear prince was trying to escape with other slaves when they realized that it was just another scheme. The characters making unnecessary statements and forced use of humor make it a dull watch. Also, the animation work could have been improved a lot.


In my opinion, S. S. Rajamouli's Bahubali concept should retire now. Since there have come many new and exciting films, it has lost its charm. You don't feel the same enthusiasm with this one as it did with the movies. The reason behind it is that now after watching the two movies multiple times we know how every character is and to what extent they'll go. So, there's a very small element of mystery left.


With the brewing war, it'll be interesting to watch what Mahishmati will have in the future. Also, Bhallaldev's actions regarding joining his brother will be worth watching only if the writers have decided to spice up the content.


A total of nine episodes have been decided for this poorly developed animated show and as per the content seen till now, we can't expect much from Bahubali: Crown of Blood in the future.


Final Score – [6.5/10]
