‘Baahubali: The Beginning’ fails as audience await ‘The Conclusion’

The decision to re-release ‘Baahubali: The Beginning’ hasn’t worked at the box office. The 2015 epic has collected Rs 1.7 crore in its opening weekend, with around 70 lakhs of business coming on Sunday. The Mumbai circuit contributed Rs 52 lakhs to the first weekend total. The All-India business, including business from the time the film first released in theatres, has now crossed the 120 crore mark.

The dull response to the re-release will make no difference to the sequel, ‘Baahubali 2: The Conclusion’, which is one of the most hyped films of 2017.

The pre-release enquiries and interest is so high that the film could get close to collecting 100 crore (gross) all over India on its opening day (28th April).

Rajnikanth’s ‘Kabali’ is the¬†highest opening day grosser in the South and its opening day record of Rs 55 crore will be challenged by ‘Baahubali 2: The Conclusion’. The Hindi version is equally hot in the trade. The record for highest opening day of 2017, currently held by Shah Rukh Khan’s Raees, is likely to be surpassed. Even a 30-crore plus opening day for the Hindi version cannot be ruled out.

The next couple of weeks have ‘female-centric’ films like ‘Begum Jaan’ and ‘Noor’ lined up for release. Both movies will rely on word-of-mouth, with ‘Begum Jaan’ generating more interest as compared to ‘Noor’ which is carrying zero interest.

All eyes will be on ‘Baahubali 2: The Conclusion’. 28th April 2017 is the date.

  • Well,everyone seems to be overhyping this movie.no doubt in south it will create records,but in Hindi version expecting it to cross 30 CR’s is a lot too much…

  • After Bahubali 2 release, we will all see the biggest ever manipulation in the history of the world as this d grade sequel will be totally shattered by Begam Jaan and Noor
    Dangal real collections (non manipulated, real) – 12 lakhs or 0.12 crores
    Plz all don’t follow producer figure of dangal as it is all fake

  • I saw Baahubali on TV few days back and found it very boring. Even action scenes were childishly animated. Don’t know why people liked it.

  • I think some people’s can’t digest that the non khan starrer film will gross 100 crores on day 1. Say whatever you want to say this is what it is. Congratulations to indicine For honest explanation. By the way its considering IPL effects.

  • I don’t know how 90s mega openers like Hum,Trimurti,Koyla and border and best opener of this century like k3g and dhoom3 opened down south but this film will open huge pan India

  • @Lallu Khan Salve Khan if dangal did only 12 lakhs than by the same logic none of lallu movies has crossed even 1000 rupees. Lol. Get a life you jerk. Dangal has crossed 387 cr and it is officially the highest grosser of all time. Keep burning in jealousy. Nothing will affect aamir and his fans are always with him who will make sure that his each and every movie kicks the shit out of all other movies at box office.

  • ghajini set records and created huge sensation.. then came 3 idiots and almost doubled the figures.. now no one remembers how ghajini stormed the boxoffice in 2008 xmas , just because the bigger sensation 3idiots . ( funny , i found the pre release 3 idiots indicine articles recently , where you were not expecting a record breaker, but many people like me, were super confident about hirani’s next film going to be a genuine atbb and a record breaker after watching lage raho munnabhai )

    now history repeats.. like ghajini , baahubali 2 will become a milestone blockbuster .. only to be bettered by robot 2 soon .

  • Why are these jealous people against baahubali 2? The first was brilliant and the second is hot
    These pricks dont realise this film will be huge whether in the hindi market or south. Its a slap at the shitty bollywood industry who churn out crap each week with the exception of a few hits
