Bahubali 2 – a mega blockbuster

This has to go down as my first time in a theatre on a “first day – first show”.  Its another matter altogether that I did not intend to watch the movie itself.

The day: 28th April 2017, about 10 am

The movie: Bahubali-The Conclusion

Location: Sudarshan theatre, RTC Crossroads.

When I read that – BookMyShow (an online portal for selling movie tickets) had claimed to have sold a million tickets – two days before the release of ‘Bahubali-The Conclusion’ (!!) –  I was eager to see the craze for myself. Friends and family were keen to know if I was sure – I am habituated to watching a flick only on its way out even it has a rating of a 5* and comes highly recommended. But hey who said I wanted to watch this movie today itself?

With its grand sets and epic performances, Baahubali-2 was the most-anticipated film of the year. The film had released in 6,500 screens, which is highest ever in Indian history.

The question “Why Kattappa Killed Bahubali” even got its own hashtag after the film’s poster and trailers and the first look were out.

Drumrolls were the order of the day – drumming up the celebrations as well as the hype.

Can we believe Bahubali gets an abhishekam (milk poured over his head) amidst all the fanfare?

Film City – Sets

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I was at the Film City on some work and had a couple of hours to wait. Luckily with a car at my disposal at the site, I wandered around and made some shots. The film city bus rides do pass by some of these sets with the guides telling you which film scene was shot there I am not sure I can recognize any of them. Perhaps you do?

Needless to say some of these sets were under constructions.

Take on daily life

Always wondered if “reel life” mimics (or drew inspiration from) “real life” or vice versa!

I was only trying to frame the actor/poster(on the bus) wondering which real life subject would be good to include in the frame. And the lady hurriedly ran past in the hope of catching a bus in front of this one.
