It has been quite a weekend, which witnessed audience watching and talking about just one film. The movie which overshadowed the likes of a Hollywood movie, Fast and Furious 8, in terms of craze and box office numbers. The movie which made the stalwarts and the upcoming stars of the celluloid world go gaga over the flick and by dropping their jaws with awe.
The weekend, the week or rather say, the year belongs to Baahubali 2: The Conclusion. The movie minted close to 400 Cr gross value at the Box Office for just 2 days which is humongous. The movie brought in a lot of feedback, appreciation and support not just from the Telugu fraternity, but from the South industry as well to the team of Baahubali for their perseverance, grit, hard work and dedication.
Let's check out some of the overwhelming feedback from the industry folks.
It was Jr. NTR who took it on the social media and congratulated the team. "#Baahubali2 is Indian Cinema's finest canvas. @ssrajamouli has taken not just Telugu Cinema, but Indian Cinema to a whole new level. Hats off"
A well wisher and a good friend to director Rajamouli, Tarak displayed his affection on twitter which was followed by Mahesh Babu's appreciation to the team. "Mind boggling stuff, a game changer! Hats off to @ssrajamouli and the entire team!"
National award-winning actor and young sensation of south, Dhanush poured his admiration by saying - @ssrajamouli sir :) nothing more to say. #masterpiece #writingatitsbest .. break the rules. Redefined everything. I mean EVERYTHING"
Whilst prominent Bollywood film-maker, Mahesh Bhatt, exclaimed "Bahubali is a game changer, it's the kind of movie that redefines everything you thought u knew & understood about Indian movies."
Ministers Venkaiah Naidu & KTR
It was not just the cinema circle which is caught in the frenzy and fever of Baahubali, the political circles of the state and centre are too stung by the bug called Baahubali.
If the central minister, M. Venkaiah Naidu tweeted "I have just watched #baahubali2 it is a great visual treat giving the experience of legendary Hollywood films 'Ben-Hur and Ten Commandments" in a wholehearted manner then the minister of Telangana, KTR seemed to have enjoyed the euphoric experience which was pretty evident from his tweet."
"As a movie lover, haven't had a more magical experience in the longest time. Outstanding Take a bow @ssrajamouli @Shobu_ @RanaDaggubati"
One of the measured directors of Tollywood, M Sukumar, claimed himself to be a student after watching the Rajamouli directorial magnum opus and applauded the efforts of the entire team.
Ace stars of Tollywood, King Nagarjuna and Megastar Chiranjeevi too jumped into the scene and attributed the success of the movie to the team's determination and commitment.
The synonym of grandeur and extravaganza in terms of movie making, director S Shankar, wished his fellow colleague and showered heaps of praises on the opulent filmmaker.
Shankar's tweet read as "Just saw Bahubali 2 - The pride of Indian Cinema.What a Bravery,Beauty, Grandness & Music.. Awestruck.Hats off to 'Raja'mouli artsts n team". Rajamouli, wasting no time responded back to the 2.0 director, "Thank you SIR.. Your words are an inspiration to work even more harder. Our team is ecstatic & jubilant".
But it was the big daddy of cinema that made SS Rajamouli ecstatic over the former's opinion on the cinema. Superstar Rajinikanth was reported to have watched the legendary movie at his residence and soon after watching the movie, the Indian icon wished the happening team from his twitter account.
"Baahubali 2 ... indian cinema's pride. My salutes to God's own child @ssrajamouli and his team!!! #masterpiece"
Elated & delighted over the response, SS Rajamouli responded to Thalaiva who was seen quoting "THALAIVAAAA... Feeling like god himself blessed us... our team is on cloud9... Anything couldn't be bigger"
This is some proceedings for the team of Baahubali which could last for a lifetime.
