If you thought ‘Baahubali – the Beginning’ was epic, you ain’t seen nothing yet. The much-awaited sequel to the fantasy saga opened to full houses in the United Arab Emirates on Thursday, a day before the movie’s release in India.
The film is slated for release in 290 cinemas in Kerala alone. And early shows have already begun in some main centers on Friday.
‘Baahubali, the Conclusion’ was screened in more than 200 halls across the UAE at 4 pm local time. The movie was something of a disruptive force in the emirates as many fans bunked work to keep their date with the fantastic musclemen and their armies.
Many of the theaters are planning to show the movie at least 10 times on Thursday on five screens. The shows will go into the wee hours and all shows are sold out for the Friday holiday, Sharjah Star Cineplex manager Unnikrishnan said.
Indians in the emirates were facing tough competition from the natives and even people from other countries for a place in the movie hall. A local censor board member’s positive comments about the movie had triggered unprecedented interest in the movie.
The movie was released in Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam and Hindi. The leading pair of Prabhas and Anushka had visited Dubai for the movie’s promotion.
While many had their goosebump moment in the theater, here's a quick audience review of the magnum opus.
Fans were eager to know the answer for the million dollar question- Why did Katappa kill Baahubali? But it seems, they haven't revealed it in the first half.
Most of them were praising the director's effort to make the movie. Some even went on commenting it's the best Indian movie ever.
Some of the fans seem to be worried about the spoiler alerts. No doubt!
Here are some more reviews from the audience.
