Baahubali’s international release on cards : Rana

Rana Daggubati earned nationwide acclaim for his menacing performance as Bhallaladeva in the country’s biggest motion picture, Baahubali. The actor took part in the Lakme Fashion Week in New Delhi recently and commented about Baahubali’s success and said that he never anticipated Baahubali’s phenomenal impact. 

Rana also said that the international release of Baahubali is round the corner as the film will hit foreign shores within a week. We already reported that the international version of Baahubali will be screened at Busan International Film Festival. Hollywood editor Vincent Tabaillon shortened the film by 23 minutes to suit the foreign audiences. 

Meanwhile, Baahubali has amassed more than 600 crores at box-offices worldwide.

Baahubali completes 50 Days

100, 175 Days are passe says SS Rajamouli

Even as "Baahubali - the Beginning" (Bahubali) – released on 10 July – successfully completes 50 on Friday at the worldwide box office, director SS Rajamouli says the trend of 50, 100, 175 day run is old fashion. 

The movie has collected about Rs 595 crore gross at the worldwide box office in seven weeks. Besides shattering many old records, the Prabhas starrer has become the third all-time Indian movie grosser in the global market. SS Rajamouli, who has impressed the audience across the globe with his master story-telling, is very happy that "Baahubali - the Beginning" has done superb business. But he is against the idea of running the movie for 100 or 175 days for the sake of creating records. 

A day before "Baahubali - the Beginning" completed 50 days, SS Rajamouli took to his Twitter handle to express his views. In a series of tweets, the director said he will withdraw his film from the theatres, if it fails to do well at the ticket counters. Here is the lengthy Twitter post: 

Record number of 50 days, 100 days,175 days are things of past. Today, Films are being released in 1000′s of screens and run is over by 3-4 weeks. Few main screens might still give shares, but mostly the run is over. It is very sad when some fans ask for an extension, sometimes paying out of their pockets and sometimes asking the exhibitors to do so. Friends..! what do we gain out of these false records?? Audience have given us a memorable victory that we will remember for the rest of our lives. What more do we need? Our industry is plagued by this issue for a long time. Let's not be a part of it. It is high time we stopped this. Bahubali will run in theatres that are yielding shares. If not, it will make way for other new films to follow. We will NOT block theatres for false records. 

"Baahubali - the Beginning" will be screened at the Busan International Film Festival and SS Rajamouli will be present on the occasion. On 28 August, the director tweeted: "Baahubali will be screening at Busan international film festival on oct4th, 7th and 9th. I'll Be attending on 4th."

The Importance of Baahubali's Success : The Hindu

Southern Invasion 
Editor,Jitesh Pillaai(The Hindu) talks about the importance of Baahubali's success.
Baahubali - the name suggests it’s something out of the ’30s mythological era of films. Back then, bringing to life the various stories associated with our glorious prehistory and our multi-layered mythology was the safest bet to ensure box-office success. The common populace was already familiar with the legends and looked forward to their favorite gods and monsters, heroes and villains, locking horns. People had a field day as good defeated evil once more. Over time, the interest in such films dwindled. 

Not that the films became realistic – rather they became even more escapist, if anything. But somewhere the wow factor associated with mythological films waned. The old bottle needed a new spin and that’s what director SS Rajamouli has done in Baahubali starring Prabhas, Rana Daggubati, Tamannaah and Anushka Shetty. He infused cutting edge technology within a heroic tale of valour to create a drama, which dazzles with its stunning visuals and yet retains enough emotional wallop to keep you glued to your seats. 

But the success of Baahubali just isn’t important because of the computer wizardry it displays. Yes, it’s true it has set a benchmark in the field. But the most important aspect of its success is that it has emerged as a true pan-Indian film. It’s heartwarming to see that a film starring South Indian stars has entered the 100-crore club in its Hindi dubbed version. It has reportedly earned some 540 crores so far worldwide, which itself might be some sort of a record. 

And, mind you, it’s still going strong, still finding shows. It has completed almost 50 days in the theatres as I write. Which recent film managed that feat? Whether we will see a spate of similar films hitting the silver screen remains to be seen. 

But South Indian cinema surely has got its poster boy. It will no longer be afraid of its Hindi Bhaijaan’s shadow. This is great news indeed as more and more dream merchants will stop catering to just a regional audience and venture forth for a bigger share of the market. 

The continuing popularity of Katappa jokes on social media platforms is an indication that the second part, releasing next year, is going to be an even bigger hit. Keep the humour flowing till then...

For 'Baahubali' A Global Second Wind Is Coming

Article Credits : Forbes 
Author : Rob Cain 

Baahubali: The Beginning is nearing the end of its domestic run in India having established itself as the country’s highest grossing movie ever, with more than 5 billion rupees (US$75.8 million) in gross ticket revenue. There’s a good chance it will retain that status until its sequel, Baahubali: The Conclusion, releases in India’s theaters in late summer, 2016.

But when it comes to overseas receipts, the SS Rajamouli saga still lags behind the 2014 Rajkumar Hirani-directed comedy PK and Kabir Khan’s drama Bajrangi Bhaijaan, which have earned 3 billion rupees ($45.5 million) and 1.8 billion rupees ($27.3 million), respectively, far more than the 0.8 billion rupees ($12 million) that Baahubali has managed to earn in foreign theaters so far. As a result, Baahubali ranks only third after PK and Bajrangi Bhaijaan in terms of total, gross worldwide box office revenues.

But in conversations over the past week with Mr. Rajamouli (see my upcoming interview with him in Forbes next week) and with Baahubali’s international distributor, I’ve confirmed that there are plans afoot to introduce the film in a big way to non-Indian audiences this fall. So don’t count out Baahubali’s chances for catching up with PK yet. 

Vincent Tabaillon, the French born, Los Angeles-based editor of such blockbusters as Clash of the Titans, The Incredible Hulk and Now You See Me is creating a special international cut of the film that will be 20 minutes shorter and will include a few enhancements aimed at global moviegoers. There could even possibly be a 3D version if international buyers support it.

This year Ganesh Chaturthi Special : Baahubali Ganpati

On one side SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus Baahubali inspired the whole nation with its art and the set and on other hand is slowly nearing the Rs 600 crore mark at the global box office. 

Baahubali, which is more of a visual spectacle has been an brainwave to many filmmakers and has set new benchmarks in film making and presentation. But the movie has not just motivated directors only. It has also inspired several idol makers who are making Ganpati models in the same pose as Prabhas from the Baahubali poster. 

The Ganpati idols come in both mini and medium sizes and look really delightful. Striking the same pose as the on screen Baahubali from the film, with the Shivling, more and more idol makers have hand crafted such Ganpati idols, ahead of Ganesh Chaturthi. 

 Now our Ganpati Bappa is more muscular and even has six pack abs to display. The Baahubali styled Ganpati idols are selling like hot cakes in the market as well.

பாகுபலி 2: தெலுங்கு ஹீரோக்களை ஓரங்கட்டி சம்பளத்தில் முன்னணி வகிக்கும் பிரபாஸ்

பாகுபலி திரைப்படம் வெற்றிகரமாக ஓடியதில் பிரபாஸின் புகழ் தற்போது நாளுக்குநாள் ஏறிக்கொண்டே செல்கிறது டோலிவுட்டில். பாகுபலி திரைப்படம் இந்திய அளவில் சுமார் 560 கோடிகளை வசூல் செய்தது, இதனால் படத்தில் 3 ஆண்டுகள் கஷ்டப்பட்டு உழைத்த நாயகன் பிரபாசிற்கு இந்திய அளவில் ஒரு மிகப்பெரிய அங்கீகாரம் கிடைத்துள்ளது. 

இந்தப் படத்தின் மூலம் உலகம் முழுவதும் தெரிந்த நாயகன் மற்றும் வசூல் நாயகன் போன்ற புகழ், பெருமைகளுடன் இன்னொரு மிகப்பெரிய நன்மையும் பிரபாசிற்கு கிடைத்துள்ளது. அதாவது படத்தின் முதல் பாதியில் 3 வருட உழைப்பிற்காக சுமார் 24 கோடிகள் வரை சம்பளமாகப் பெற்றிருந்த பிரபாஸ்,தற்போது பாகுபலியின் 2 வது பாகத்தில் அதைவிட அதிகத் தொகையினை பெற இருக்கிறாராம். 

பிரபாஸின் உழைப்பைப் பார்த்த இயக்குநர் ராஜமௌலி 2 வது படத்தின் லாபத் தொகையில், ஒரு குறிப்பிட்ட சதவீதத்தை பிரபாசிற்கு கொடுக்க ஏற்கனவே தீர்மானித்து விட்டாராம். தற்போது தயாரிப்பாளர்களும் இதனை உறுதி செய்திருக்கின்றனர், 2 வது பாகத்தின் மூலம் போட்ட பணத்தை திரும்ப எடுத்தால் கூட மிகப்பெரிய தொகை பிரபாசிற்கு கிடைக்க வாய்ப்புள்ளது, 

படத்தின் மீதான எதிர்பார்ப்பு மட்டுமின்றி அனுஷ்காவின் தரிசனமும் கட்டப்பா பாகுபலியைக் கொன்றது ஏன் என்ற முக்கியமான கேள்விக்கு விடையும் 2 ம் பாகத்தில் இருப்பதால் படத்திற்கு உலகளவில் எதிர்பார்ப்பு எழுந்துள்ளது.

எனவே முதல் பாகத்தில் கிடைத்ததை விடவும் பல மடங்கு தொகையினை பிரபாஸ் பெறவிருக்கின்றார், இந்த சம்பளத்தைப் பெறும்போது டோலிவுட்டில் மட்டுமல்லாது இந்திய அளவில் மிகப்பெரிய சம்பளம் வாங்கும் நடிகராகவும் பிரபாஸ் உயர்ந்து விடுவார் என்று சொல்கின்றனர். இதனைக் கேட்டு பல முன்னணி தெலுங்கு நடிகர்களும் ஆடிப் போயிருக்கின்றனாராம்...என் உழைப்பு என் பணம்னு பிரபாஸ் சொல்லும் காலம் தொலைவில் இல்லை.

Distributors cashing in on Huge craze of Prabhas

Post the phenomenal success of Baahubali, film lovers across the country stood up and took notice of Telugu Cinema’s macho hunk, Prabhas. The Young Rebel Star in now a pan-India star and his fan base has grown by leaps and bounds. 

This gave an opportunity to the distributors from the Rest of India to cash in on the huge craze for Prabhas. Some of the previous hits of Prabhas like Darling, Mr. Perfect and Mirchi will soon be releasing in Kerala. 

A noted Malayalam distributor purchased the dubbing rights for these films for a hefty price. Mirchi is being promoted as ‘Baahubali stars Back In’, as it stars Prabhas and Anushka.

And in Mumbai and some of the Hindi speaking centres in the north, Prabhas and Kangana Ranaut starrer Ek Niranjan will be releasing tomorrow as Dada. This craze for Prabhas will only increase multifold when Baahubali The Conclusion releases next summer.
