Pawan’s Role In Baahubali 2 Success

What on earth Pawan Kalyan has to do with ‘Bahubali 2? The story writer says the power star inspired him indirectly to script the interval bang which has been liked most.

Hyderabad: ‘Baahubali : The Conclusion’ is getting encomiums from critics across globe. The magnum opus is shattering records worldwide with almost houseful collections.

Interval bang is getting huge applaud by audience, which we can say highlight of the flick. Film writer, Vijayendra Prasad, in his post interview revealed the secret and inspiration for that scene.

As per him, he went on to watch an event where Pawan kalyan’s fans keep on chanting slogans” Pawan, Pawan” for more than 5 minutes. The scene if watched by any other star would have felt a sharp pang of jealousy of power star, according to the writer. This hysteria towards Pawan made the writer to script the interval bang where Bhallaladeva is seen with anger and jealousy when people chant Baahubali’s name during coronation.

So indirectly there is Pawan’s mark in the success of Baahubali as per Vijayendra Prasad.

According to ‘Box Office India’ report Baahubali-2 has collected more than ₹100 crore on the first day. The business is expected to grow on Saturday and Sunday and also during the next week.

A problem has Auden in Tamil Nadu where the film was released disappointing the fans. Baahubali 2 producers Arka Media had not issued the KDM licences to theatres in TN as the local distributor, Raja Rajan of K Productions, had defaulted on the final settlement. However, the shows started in the afternoon as a compromise has been worked out in a smart way.

In Kerala too Baahubali had faced problems. The film opened with early morning show in Kerala on Friday in 306 screens. But there was clash of interest between multiplexes and local distributor Global United Media as a result of which there were no shows till afternoon.

The national multiplex players had come down after seeing the huge disappointment among the fans who included women and children. In spite of the starting troubled, both the States reported record collections.

Baahubali 2 Leaves Regional Films Without Theatres

‘Baahubali : the conclusion’ occupied 6,500 theatres across the country and the regional films are bearing the brunt as they are taken off the screens. Small budget filmmakers are agonised by the development.

New Delhi: As the sensational film ‘Baahubali :the Conclusion’ was released on Friday in 6,500 theatres across the country, the regional and small budget films are bearing the brunt. Since almost all the multiplexes and theatres in every city and town across the country competed to screen Bahubali 2, the regional films and their makers demand more attention owing to their grave situation.

The mega budget film has become a serious threat to regional films. This situation led to filmmakers like Kaushik Ganguly to take to twitter to reveal that his national- award winning Bengali film Bihorjaon is losing theatres in its own State.

“They are Bahubalis & we are Bengalis. They rule & we surrender! But for how long? Bishorjon losing theatres and shows in its own state! SAD,” he wrote.

Answering to a question on Twitter he said, “my audience stays focused and bears the inconvenience of having lesser shows. Hope it will be better in the 4th week.”.

The situation is no way different in Karnataka. Many Kannada and Telugu films were taken off screens for the mega release of Bahubali across Karnataka.

Kannada film director P C Shekar said that the exhibitors removed his Kannada film Raaga in 65 theatres in the State a week after its release to screen Bahubali. Angry Shekar also alleged that the theatre owners denied his requests to save some shows for Raaga.

Meanwhile, Karnataka Film Chamber of Commerce former president K V Chandrashekar justifying their action said that Raaga had less box office collection is the reason for the show being taken off. No exhibitor will take off a film from a theatre if box office collection is good, said Chandrashekar. He was screening another Kannada film Raajakumara in his theatres for the fifth week at a stretch.

Baahubali 2 Review: Captivates Audience Throughout

Baahubali 2, released on Friday, is captivating throughout. It is on par with Hollywood movies. Rajamouli has enhanced the reputation of Indian movie industry with this film. Reviewer’s rating: 4/5.

Hyderabad: Why did Kattappa kill Baahubali? This is the question that was haunting every filmi buff in the country. As the Baahubali ends with a cliff hanger, the anticipation amongst the fans can be justified. Baahubali 2: The conclusion provides all the answers to the questions raised by the first part. Directed by SS Rajamouli, the film is on par with international standards. The much awaited movie got released on Friday in 9000 theatres across the world. Let’s see what the film offers to the audience.

Amarendra Bahubali (Prabhas) will be preparing to ascend the throne of Mahishmati kingdom as commanded by Rajamata Sivagami (Ramya Krishna). The prince who wanted to know the problems of the people takes up a visit in disguise and falls in love with princess of Kuntala – Devasena. Without revealing his identity, he goes to Kuntala kingdom and stays in the palace trying to persuade Devasena to love him. At the same time jealous Bhallaladeva (Rana) succeeds in stopping the coronation of Bahubali.

Though, Bahubali doesn’t become the king, he was the most charismatic and popular person amongst the people. Unable to accept the fact, Bhallaladeva makes lives of Bahubali and Devasena miserable. Why does Sivagami who loves Bahubali stop him from ascending the throne? Why did Kattappa kill Bahubali though he loves him from the bottom of his heart? These questions and the way they are answered makes the narrative gripping.

After the release of Bahubali, the prestige of Telugu cinema was enhanced across the world as the director Rajamouli could shoot every scene as he visualised. Bahubali 2 only added to it. By elevating heroism and moulding an ordinary story into an extraordinary one and perfect screen play, world class graphics – ‘Bahubali 2 : The conclusion’ had it all.
With an extraordinary scene every fifteen minutes that grips the audience, Rajamouli enhanced the image of the movie. While the scenes of Prabhas at Anushka’s home are the best, the war scenes mesmerize the fans. The suspense has been maintained till the end. The emotional sequences between Ramyakrishna, Anushka, Prabhas throughout film add flavor to the film.

Technical Departments: The sets were artistic and massive. The credit goes to art director Cyril. The world class visual effects and the wonderful cinematography add to the richness of the film. Cinematography by Senthil makes you glued to the screen.

Music given by Keeravani is one of its strengths. The music he composed is as usual enthralling. Apart from the director the credit goes to the writer Vijayendra Prasad. He gave life to each character. That is the reason why the characters of Amarendra Bahubali, Kattappa, Devasena, Bijjaladeva and Sivagami haunt the audience.

The shots between Prabhas and Anushka were beautiful and enticing. Rajamouli succeeded in bringing out the best of the entire cast. All the actors competed in their performance. .

Artists Performance: Prabhas gave life to the character of Amarendra Baahubali and Baahubali. The screen presence of Anushka as the princess of Kuntala is amazing.

Rana is at his best in the role of Bhallaladeva. The body language and expression of emotions exhibited what villanism is. Ramyakrishna continued her best performance as Rajamata Sivagami. Satyaraj was immersed in the role of Kattappa. He entertained and engaged the audience throughout the film. He showed his mettle in the comedy track too. Though there are no significant weaknesses in the film, the director should have allowed Tamanna to speak more in the movie.

Finally the movie is perfect end to the first part of Baahubali- The Beginning. Its a must watch film by every movie lover which makes u feel cool during this hot breezy summer.

Rating: 4/5

Baahubali 2 Leads To Caste War In Godavari Districts

There have been sporadic clashes between the fans of heroes Prabhas and Pawan Kalyan before the release of Baahubali-2 in Godavari districts because of the alleged bias shown by Naidu Government.

Rajamahendravaram: Baahubali 2 , magnum opus, mania is running all over the globe with positive talk and record collections on day one. But the story is different in Telugu state, Andhra Pradesh. It led to clashes between two castes which have been trying to gain an upper hand in Godavari districts. The main reason for the present war is Government’s decision of giving permission for extra shows for Baahubali 2.

Chiranjeevi, Mega Star, a major force for Kapu community came back with a bang with his film Khaidi No 150 after a gap of 8 years. Chiranjeevi’s fans and Kapu leaders tried for benefit shows across AP,  permission for which was denied by AP Government. Same scene repeated for Pawan’s flick Katamrayudu and Government faced anger from Kapu youth for cancelling extra shows of Jana Sena’s Chief Pawan Kalyan’s Katamarayudu.

For Baahubali 2, AP Government passed a special ‘GO’ to screen six shows per day which triggered tension in East and West Godavari districts.

Violent scenes were witnessed in Bhimavaram and Amalapuram on Thursday night near theatres where clashes between Prabhas’ and Pawan’s fans took place.

In Amalapuram, four cars were damaged, a theatre was damaged after Pawan’s fans went on rampage.

In Bhimavaram , section 144 was imposed near theatre and in town.

In Rajahmundry there was a flexi-war between the fans of these two top actor.

In Kakinada, Tense situation is there near theatres with slogans raising in favour of both Pawan and Prabhas by their fans.

It is now up to the heroes to cool down their fans and bring situation back to normal.

It is the Government which was responsible for the unseemly caste war

SS Rajamouli: Baahubali of Indian cinema

SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali 2: The conclusion is releasing on Friday all over the world. The magnum opus, touted as the biggest and most spectacular film ever made in India in five languages, is slated to break all the previous records. Cine buffs’ expectations are palpable and they can be gauged from the advance sale of tickets. Is Rajamouli going to be the Baahubali of Indian cinema?


Madhusudhana Rao S

The whole country seems to be in the grip of Baahubali fever. On the eve of the release of sequel to Baahubali 1: The Beginning, movie lovers and the media in the two Telugu states of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana have nothing else to talk except Baahubali 2: The Conclusion.

The hype created by the media and the unprecedented promotions launched by the film producers around the world are as phenomenal as the making of the film. The extraordinary interest the film generated can be attributed to the mystery cleverly embedded in the first part – Why did Kattappa kill Baahubali? The answer has been left to the rich imagination of cine goers and for two years they have been scratching their heads, proffering various explanations.  On Friday, the question that has been tickling millions of Baahubali fans across the world will be answered.

But what unfolds on thousands of screens in India and the US and Canada is more than un-riddling of a puzzle: A world that has never been presented to Indian cine audience by a director who is mostly known to only South Indians; a fantasy woven around characters who spring to life straight from Indian mythological stories depicting valour, honour, gallantry, among others; the fabled opulence and grandeur of ancient kingdoms, internecine battles for power and glory, clannish treachery, et al.

In other words, Rajamouli and his team have explored a world that is limited to folklore and mythology and projected it on to the screen in all its splendor. It’s a feat few producers and directors have ventured to do on such a grand scale as to rival Hollywood masterpieces of yesteryear.

Baahubali is comparable to The Lord of the Rings trilogy and Avatar, which have wowed the audience worldwide in recent years for their story narrative, visual effects, cinematography, etc. But Baahubali excels in other departments, particularly song and dance which is the forte of Indian cinema in any language.

Baahubali 2 is being touted as bigger than its prequel and more spectacular than any other Indian film made so far. Without budget constraints and commitment to perfection, Rajamouli’s magnum opus has already broken several records and is going to set many others in the coming days.

For the record, Baahubali 2 will have the biggest ever release in India – about 6,500 screens readied for the show– and in almost all the theatres, including multiplexes, it is the only film to have five or six shows every day at least for a couple of weeks. In the US and Canada, where the film will hit 2,500 screens, the rate of advance booking sale is said to be $ 100,000 per hour! Considering the fact that Baahubali 2 is being released in five languages at the same time — Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada and Malayalam – its box office collections could surpass Rs 1000 crores, making it the first Indian movie to cross that mark.

In the last few days, the rage for the film has been such that when theatres started online booking, tickets had been sold out in a few hours despite the fact that Andhra Pradesh had given permission for cinemas to run six shows per screen per day and Telangana five. Scorching day temperature has not deterred Baahubali fans from standing in long queues to get tickets for any available show. It’s a different matter some might have sweated it out in heat and dust outside cinema halls to make a killing in the black market.

The mega budget, star-studded action-filled film with eye-popping sets and props shot with special effects is set to open a new chapter in the Indian cinema. Indeed, we have come a long way from the era of silent movies to mastering digital technology to enhance our audio-visual experience of cinema manifold. And, the credit goes to SS Rajamouli. He is truly the Baahubali of Indian cinema.
