Cast

Production

Prabhas, Rana and Anushka did a lot of home work and hard work for the film. All of them practiced sword fighting, while Prabhas and Rana learned horse riding. It was later decided to make it a two part film which would release by 2015, due to its excessive length.Tamil lyricist Madhan Karky was selected to write the dialogues for the Tamil version. He said that his dialogues would be along the lines of yesteryear epic historical movies like Manohara (1954) and Nadodi Mannan (1958) and that they would be in chaste Tamil.[21] The film's action sequences were choreographed by Peter Hein who revealed that each and every shot was dealt carefully and there are huge requirements which are not seen in regular movies as it is a complete period film. For a particular action sequence, Peter Hein had to handle around 2000 stuntmen & elephants. K. K. Senthil Kumar was selected to handle the film's cinematography.
P. M. Satheesh was the sound designer of the film. Regarding his experience with the film, he said "Baahubali is one of the very few films in South where a lot of importance is being given to sound recording. We dropped the idea of shooting with sync sound since the dialogue delivery has to be modified accordingly. The sound design team embeds various types of micro-phones throughout the set to record the ambient sound, which will lend a natural feel to the film. It's necessary, because some of these sounds aren't available in the market. It's quite a challenge for everyone". Sabu Cyril was the art director of the film. In an interview to The Times of India, he said "Every hour is a challenge on the sets of Baahubali. Period films are a huge responsibility as there is no room for mistakes. Everything was created from scratch : chairs, thrones, palaces, swords, armor and costumes." Foley Artiste Philipe Van Leer started working with the film's crew from 5 November 2014 till 14 November 2014 at Dame Blanche complex in Belgium.Rana revealed that the film is about a war between two brothers - Baahubali played by Prabhas and Bhallala Deva played by himself for a kingdom.
