The recently released blockbuster movie Baahubali 2, the Conclusion is certainly a masterpiece in the history of Indian Cinema. This series has shown a new light to the rest of the fraternity to strive and create something extraordinary and breathtaking instead of producing a masala film all the time totally for the commercial success and nothing else. We witnessed cheap, indecent comedy or obscenity in box office hits of the past. Sometimes, it seems like that the Indian cinema has become the hostage of a new generation stereo type movies with some mega stars with some popular production extend their hand in making multi-crore films. Baahubali is a tight slap on all those arrogant producers, who consider making Rs.200 crore is their only aim and the star attraction can only promote such a scenario. The patience and courage shown by S.S. Rajamouli and his entire crew to show us the glimpse of what the Indian cinema is capable of producing is an icing on the cake for the super duper hit film. This amazing experience is receiving unprecedented welcome all over the world and the box office collection is going towards the 2000 crore worldwide. We have not witnessed such a phenomenal success in Indian Cinema with both Bollywood and Kollywood pumping huge money.
Even though the success story of both Salman Khan and Rajinikant are limited within some sectors, Baahubali 2 is India’s answer to Hollywood and bring to you some interesting facts about the epic was drama. The audience enjoy every moment of the film and they are willing to see the film repeatedly to look into its finer points with great expectations.
The film got very good opening in 9000 number of screens worldwide and in India alone it is shown in 6500 screens. The 250 crore budget of the film of which 30 crore was spent only for the climax scene lasting 30 minutes and that is a great tribute to the director of the film to take such a calculated risk.
The multi-crore film project released in Hindi, with the rights going to Karan Johar for Rs.120 crore shows the demand for the movie in Mumbai and other Hindi speaking regions. Sony TV paid Rs.51 crores to buy the Hindi version all augurs well for the big budget film. Prabhas and Rana Daggubatti gained 30 kilos of weight for getting into the skin of their characters. Two thousand body builders, 1000 artists, 1000 workers, 200-250 horses and more than a dozen elephants were involved in the war sequence that last for nearly three months. Baahubali 2 received a superb amount of hype, promotion and advance booking even before its release across the world.
