How big a blockbuster a film is, it is obvious to see a dip in collections as the film moves from first week to second week. Baahubali 2, India’s biggest blockbuster, however proving to be a rarest of the rare exception.
After collecting Rs 1000 crore worldwide gross in less than 10 days, the epic film directed by SS Rajamouli has started off its second week days run on a super-consistent note. As per trade reports, the film’s collections on second Monday are on par with the collections of last week days, which means there is negligible drop in footfalls compared to first week.
Although the biggest USP of the film, the mystery behind Kattappa killing Baahubali is now known to almost everyone in the country, it has not stopped the viewers from thronging to theatres again and again to witness the film’s visual brilliance and unparalleled grandeur.
Another aspect that helped the film to have consistent run is the no-effect of piracy. Even though the film’s pirated prints are available on internet, people are refraining themselves from watching the distorted version of this epic film in small screens. Everyone seems to have hell bent on experiencing the masterpiece on big screens only in order to get maximum goosebumps. Lack of good films in theatres and summer holidays could be termed as other reasons for the film’s domineering show at box office.
Going at this rate, it wouldn’t be a surprise if Baahubali 2 rakes in 1500 crore or even more in its full run.
