After two years of suspense, the second part of the Baahubali franchise, “Baahubali-The Conclusion” hit the theaters and the visual grandeur amassed fabulous numbers at the box office. With people cuing up in gigantic numbers, houseful boards were the only thing that was found in front of every theater and it collected a whopping Rs. 122 Crore on the first day.
Whilst many pointed out that the second part’s plot was completely focused on “Why Katappa Killed Baahubali”, one has to accept a fact that this film was much more than that. Absolute top notch performances from the two female leads Ramya Krishnan(Shivagami) and Anushka Shetty(Devasena) played a pivotal role in the film’s success.
How can we not mention Prabhas(Baahubali), Rana Daggubati(Bhallaladeva) and Satya Raj(Katappa), who literally won everyone’s hearts with their performances. Well, the man behind all these things, the king of the entire success of the film, SS Rajamouli is now being touted as the biggest film maker in Indian history. Karan Johar even said in a pre-release event that Rajamouli falls in the same league as that of Spielberg and Christopher Nolan.
All these compliments from great superstars across the country stand on side and the compliment from the original superstar of this country, the living legend, the thailava himself, Rajnikanth congratulated SS Rajamouli and Rajamouli was absolutely elated with his appreciation.
The demigod of masses Rajnikanth tweeted saying “Baahubali 2 … indian cinema’s pride. My salutes to God’s own child SS Rajamouli and his team!!! ”

SS Rajamouli’s euphoria was something that can never be expressed in words as every South Indian grew up adoring the legend of Rajnikanth. That was his fan boy moment and he replied saying, “THALAIVAAAA… Feeling like god himself blessed us… our team is on cloud9… Anything couldn’t be bigger”
