Prabhas and Anushka Shetty in a still from Baahubali 2

Baahubali 2: The Conclusion is all set to take the Indian box-office by storm this Friday, the 28th of April, owing to the immense buzz and euphoria surrounding the release of the film, which is a continuation of Baahubali : The Beginning. It is being referred to as the most expensive Indian film till date. The kind of pan-India acceptance that the first film had is something that hasn’t been seen before, especially for a movie that comes originally from the telugu land.

Regional cinema being dubbed in multiple languages and then being accepted with such fervour and warmth all over the country, is a rare experience in itself. So after the record breaking reception that the first film received, the trade analysts in the country are waiting with bated breath to see what kind of impact Baahubali 2 makes.

This two part movie is definitely proving to be a game changer for Indian cinema. What works really well for it is that it is not borrowing foreign concepts and ideas. Instead it takes its inspiration from Indian folklore like Amar Chitra Katha, Mahabharata etc. The story is rooted in Indian soil which makes it relatable to the average Indian cine-goer. There is a connect that the audience feels to the characters and the visuals. And it becomes a matter of pride that a film of this scale and magnitude has been conceived, conceptualised and made start to finish in India with Indian workforce and talent.

Owing to this sentiment, the advance booking of the film has begun on a massive note, especially in the Telugu states of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana as well as in the state of Kerala. Trade analysts are of the unanimous view that the film will atleast bring in Rs.85 crore gross on the first day itself. Which of course will be a record in itself.

Baahubali 2 has a number of things working in its favour but what tops this list of reasons is that this film will be addressing the best kept secret till date : Why Kattappa killed Baahubali?! #WKKB
