Baahubali: The Beginning’s re-release fails to attract footfalls to the theatres
The fanatics of ‘Baahubali: The Beginning’ are desperately waiting for its other part ‘Baahubali: The Conclusion’s’ release on April 28, 2017.
Undoubtedly to find the answer to the universal question ‘Why did Kattapa kill Baahubali?’
The makers of the film went a step beyond to re-release ‘Baahubali: The Beginning’ to set the premise for the forthcoming ‘Baahubali: The Conclusion.’
The film, in its re-release earned only around Rs. 2 crores on its opening weekend.
According to the Box Office India reports, the movie’s performance was very dull as there were no occupants in the theatres. The report also suggests that the film might not stay in the theatres up till the release of ‘Baahubali’ Part 2, which is just a few weeks away.
The magnum opus, which originally released two years ago on July 10, was adored both by critics and fans. It is the third highest-grosser Indian film in the world.
However, director SS Rajamouli recently revealed that the movie did not make any profit, which raises various other questions.
What we feel is that the fans have already watched the film multiple times in theatres and on satellites, and hence the idea of re-releasing it failed miserably.
‘Baahubali: The Conclusion’ features Prabhas, Rana Daggubati, Anushka Shetty and Tamannaah Bhatia in pivotal roles.
