Strengths: Story, emotional drama, music, background score, cinematography, VFXA.
Prabhas as the protagonist is superb and Rana as the villain is just superb, which is the major highlight of the film. Ramyakrishna and Satyaraj were brilliant. There was ample dose of situational comedy in the first half and great emotional depth in the second, especially during Sivagami knowing the truth and killing of Amarendra Bahubali. Anushka was damn gorgeous. Tamanna’s role in the film is very limited. Subbaraju as Anushka’s cousin did well. Every scene in the film is a masterpiece in itself and the emotional depth that Rajamouli manages to get is emphatic. Songs and action scenes are very grand and take the movie making to the next level. Every scene was captured in a heart touching way that will keep you spellbound. Background score enhances the visual treat and takes it to another level. Cinematography by Senthil takes the film to the next level. All dialogues are neat. All war scenes make us feel proud as they take the film to Hollywood standards. Except the length of the film, everything is just a visual wonder. Go for it.

Low salt increases sleep
Japan scientists found out salt is a major culprit for sleeplessness and they are promising a good sleep with less salt in food. They have a valid point as they say more salt results in more number of urine wake-ups during night thereby interrupting sleep and that lowering salt intake will decrease this number.
The conducted a research on 321 Japanese people who eat more salt and observed them for 12 weeks. Later, they selected 223 of these and lowered the salt intake drastically. They observed the 98 remaining whose salt intake stayed the same had to visit bathroom multiple times during the night while the 223 did not. Therefore, it is concluded lowering salt intake gives peaceful uninterrupted sleep.
