Abstract

 

          Bahubali is a movie,about kingdoms and betrayals. It is a story about a young prince’ quest to find his parents, and rightful place,as the heir to the throne. Despite the brilliant cinematography ,we find the blockbuster to be heavily male dominated with traditional sex role typing that tries to reflect the social norms of a mythical age and subtly reinforce the idea of gender and the absolute power of patriarchy.This perpetuation of stereotypes in movies that are based on myths and fantasies, may seem to have no direct link to social reality, however the effect and the influence of films on the viewers are far too great to be ignored( Kaplan 5).This  paper  focuses on the visual semiotics in the movie and the representation of women in the movie Bahubali.

Keywords: Bahubali, Power, Gender, Politics, Masculinity, Feminity, Identity,machismo
