Rajamouli's Baahubali-The Conclusion is one of the most talked about film in the world. Even other industries make a reference to this movie such is the magnitude of its success. It's been over a year after its release, yet the talk surrounding the film refuses to die down.
Whenever films of A-list stars open in theatres, trade analysts often compare the new release with Baahubali box office record as the film has set an unprecedented benchmark for other movies at the box office.
Recent big ticket releases—Salman Khan's Race-2. Ranbir-Sanju, Mahesh Babu's Bharat Ane Nenu and Ram Charan's Rangasthalam too failed to beat collections of Baahubali.
So what made the film so great? Was it the story, music, action sequences, VFX? Although we know Baahubali was the efforts of scores of artistes and technicians who worked on the film, fans are referring to three people as the pillars of this film.
Do you know who are the pillars of Baahubali? If you haven't guessed it by now. They are none other than director SS Rajamouli who visualised and exceuted it as per his conceptualization, Prabhas and Rana who pulled off the two big roles. No, this is not our verdict but that of fans. Have a look at this picture.
Even though Ramya Krishna, Satya Raj, Anushka, Tamannaah and of course Nazir has lent stellar performances, the key roles were that of Amarendra Baahubali and Bhallaldeva and Prabhas-Rana have breathed life into their characters.
You can't imagine any one else pulling of such a role. Be it the role of Baahubali or Bhallaladeva, a character with negative shade, Rana has just excelled in his role. And we think every actor has aptly suited his/her role and their hard work has made it one of the all-time hits by fans across the world.
On the career front, Rajamouli is giving final touches to his next flick which will be a multi-starrer featuring Ram Charan and NTR. Prabhas will be soon seen in Saaho which is slated for release next year in April. Recently, Rana confirmed his role in Balakrishna's NTR biopic where he will be seen playing Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandra Babu Naidu. Who do you consider the real pillar of Baahubali?
