Director Rajamouli’s magnum opus “Baahubali” has spelled a history at box office for south indian films. The film grossed more than 500+ crores and stunned almost all the biggies. For its visual brilliance and grandeur, it’s the most liked movie for at least 2 months.
Then we have these International film festivals where Baahubali’s name is heard during either nominations or someone screening it there. Already this Prabhas, Rana starrer got screened at couple of festivals and will be seen at Busan film festival and Toronto film festival. But a mere screening at these film festivals is not the true honor. The film has to grab at least a couple of awards, from Cannes to Toronto, such that it’s success would be meaningful.
If Baahubali remains one among Top 3 highest grossers in India and then fails to get awards at International Film Festivals, then the film’s classic status will be limited to just our own country and audiences. So, it’s award time for the magnum opus. Let’s see how many it grabs.
