The Telugu film industry can be easily classified into two segments. Before Baahubali and After Baahubali. Today marks the 7th anniversary of this Tollywood magnum opus. At the time film was announced it was the highest budget movie from Telugu. Many wondered as this was a very daring step at that point in time. But when we have someone like Rajamouli by our side, nothing is impossible.
If Eega showed what Rajamouli is capable of, Baahubali depicted to the whole nation what Telugu film is capable of. The VFX, huge war scenes mounted on a never-before scale, marvelous performances from actors, stunning visuals, a powerful storyline, and above all the screenplay and direction by the visionary director made this film a PAN Indian blockbuster in all aspects and languages.
The film inspired many filmmakers to come up with large-scale event films and proved that linguistic barriers can’t stop the success of the film. Prabhas became a PAN Indian star and other cast like Anushka, Tamannah Bhatia, Satya Raj, Rana Daggubati, and Ramya Krishna got huge applause from all parts.
Baahubali bagged two national awards and it is the first Telugu film to win the Best Feature Film at National awards. It also got featured in BBC’s documentary on 100 years of Indian cinema. It became the first non-English film to be screened at Royal Albert Hall in London where it got a standing ovation.
Many records were erased. The movie brought in people who did not go to theatres for almost years. The producers Shobu Yarlagadda and Prasad Devineni should be praised high for giving this movie. The makers taught how to promote a film like a carnival. All in all, Baahubali is a film that made every Telugu person proud.
