With fans wanting to know the answer to the burning question – why Kattappa killed Baahubali, Baahubali 2: The Conclusion was expected to have a great opening. However, the film has broken all records and created history by making Rs 121 crore in Hindi, Telugu, Tamil and Malayalam. Considering that the film released on a non-holiday, this is a phenomenal response. On Saturday, it was estimated to have made around Rs 150 crore (in all four languages).
The nation was gripped with Baahubali fever, and the police even had to impose Section 144 of the Code of Criminal Procedure (Unlawful Assembly) and even lathi-charge to control crowds going berserk. The film released across a whopping 6500 screens in India.
Baahubali 2: The Conclusion, directed by SS Rajamouli, tells the backstory of Amarendra Baahubali (Prabhas) and the circumstances that led to his death. In the present day, his angered son Mahendra Baahubali (also played by Prabhas) vows to kill the tyrant king Bhallaladeva (Rana Daggubati) for all his crimes and the humiliation of his mother Devasena (Anushka Shetty).
Baahubali 2 has received a thumbs up from critics as well as the audience. The Hindi-dubbed film has already broken the records of Salman Khan’s Sultan and Aamir Khan’s Dangal.
