SS Rajamouli’s runaway blockbuster Baahubali 2 has completed its one-month theatrical run on a terrific note. Jointly produced by Shobu Yarlagadda and Prasad Devineni, the war-drama was released simultaneously in Telugu, Tamil, Hindi, Malayalam and Kannada languages on April 28. The film, a sequel to the 2015 blockbuster Baahubali: The Beginning features Prabhas and Anushka Shetty in main lead roles. Baahubali 2 also features Rana Daggubati, Ramyakrishnan, Sathyaraj, Nassar and Tamannaah Bhatia.
Except for Malayalam film industry, within one month of its theatrical release, Baahubali 2 has emerged as the all-time biggest blockbusters in Telugu, Tamil, Bollywood and Kannada film industry. The movie has broken the lifetime collections of Baahubali 1 (Telugu), Enthiran (Tamil), Dangal (Bollywood) Kannada (Kirik Party) to do so. It’s a remarkable achievement considering it smashed all these records within just 30 calendar days.
However, Baahubali 2 is yet to become the all-time Malayalam industry blockbuster as the film is yet to cross the Rs 87 crore mark set by the 2016 Mohanlal blockbuster Pulimurugan.
Baahubali 2 has so far minted Rs 68 crore at the Kerala Box Office. The film is only Rs 19 crore away to receive the all-time Malayalam industry hit label.
But the only disadvantage for Baahubali 2 is that most of the recently released Malayalam films are doing good business at the Kerala Box Office. Be it Godha or Achayans, both Malayalam films are giving a tough challenge to the movie at the Kerala Box Office. Even Adventures Of Omanakuttan, which started on a dismal note, has registered a decent business across Kerala following the positive word-of-mouth.
Can Baahubali 2 break Mohanlal’s Pulimurugan record at the Kerala Box Office? Seems like a 30-70 chance now.
