The magnum opus ‘Baahubali’ has set the right expectations from the time it was announced and the hype is touching the sky. While that is one side of it, the other critical side to it is how this film is going to change the fate of Telugu cinema.
In Tollywood’s history, ‘Baahubali’ is the film made with highest budget ever. Inside reports reveal just the daily interest is Rs 10 lakhs for the producers so it goes to show how quickly the film has to be made. Given this kind of external finance involved, the budget has crossed Rs 100 crores. Since it is helmed by the tough taskmaster S S Rajamouli, the confidence levels are high.
He is not only a good filmmaker but also a master strategist when it comes to selling his movie. If ‘Baahubali’ results in a blockbuster then this will open the floodgates for many high budget movies to hit the floors and even big Bollywood production houses will venture into this segment. But if ‘Baahubali’s result is otherwise, the collateral damage is going to be extremely high.
