So India's biggest motion picture, as it was marketed, has finally scorched its way into thousands of screens worldwide. Baahubali, after making wondrous pre-release business has opened to positive reviews from fans as well as celebrities.
Being a Telugu-Tamil bilingual, the movie had created huge buzz in Tamil Nadu and had caught the attention of many Tamil celebrities even before its release. Clever piece of casting by SS Rajamouli had worked like a charm, making the film one part Tollywood, one part Kollywood.
Promotions too were in full swing as the makers were in no mood to leave any stone unturned. Tactics like summoning Suriya to release the Tamil trailer of Baahubali and inviting other major Tamil stars to be a part of the film's promotion has already borne fruit.
Releasing in more than 350 screens all over Tamil Nadu, the movie is already running to packed houses, according to a trade source. The mad rush to grab the first day first show tickets in Chennai will act as a proof, revealing that the movie has got an overwhelming response from the Tamil audience so far.
All that said, it is now time to know what Tamil celebrities think about Baahubali (in the slides below):
