What a fantastic romp this was! Absolutely loved it! They caught the perfect blend of epic, over-the-top human drama and action. I could easily have sat through Parts 1 and 2 back to back. Wish there was going to be a third part, though the story wrapped up nicely.

I only just saww the first..while i am impressed by the ambition and scale for the movie..definitely new for indian cinema, I didnt think it was a good movie itself. I found it much too slow paced and quite boring really. Probably shouldnt have been two movies. Plus actimg was quite bad and special effects were just too funny though the sets were very good. But perhaps second will be better as they have a bigger budget presumably. The first definitely showed potential..its a step forward in the right direction at least.
Bahubali 2 - The Conclusion has hit 1000 crore GROSS Worldwide box office in ten days. The film had gone past the Worldwide record of PK at 743 crore a few days back. Dangal was 718 crore Worldwide but now with its China run it can go over 900 crore but its not catching Bahubali - The Conclusion.
The Hindi version is at a Worldwide box office of 508 crore and it will be interesting to see if this version of the film can recah 700 crore GROSS. The 600 crore figure it will surpass. The apprx figures of Bahubali 2 - The Conclusion (All Langs) Worldwide after ten days are as follows.
India - 854 cr apprx. No film has ever even gone over 525 crore in terms of GROSS box office ever in India and this film is going to cruise past 1000 crore Gross box office in India alone. GROSS figures are the total amount collected at the box office.
Overseas - $30 million apprx (193 crore). It stands in fourth place as far as Overseas business goes for Indian films after ten days.
Worldwide - 1047 crore (After 10 days)
The film has plenty of legs left still across the World and could be looking at a 1400-1500 GROSS final tally.

Finally watched it yesterday. Loved it. As usual for South Indian movies the violence was a bit too graphic, although here it lost some of the grueling due to the special effects. Story was great I think, acting was very good too.
My favorite character was Amarendra Baahubali more than Mahendra, what is your opinion? Father or son?
Bahubali 2 All India Update - More Benchmarks Broken
Tuesday 09 May 2017 12.30 IST
Box Office India Trade Network
Bahubali 2 - The Conclusion in just eleven days has passed the 700 crore nett barrier in India. The film is crossing benchmarks at a lightning pace and its hard to say where this is going to stop.
The Hindi version is easily collecting more than regional versions of the film. The NETT and GROSS of the Hindi version was always going to be higher than the regional versions after the first week figures. Now the Hindi version may even get close in terms of distributor share. Basically the performance of the Hindi version is going to the best. Even better than the original Telugu version. Below are the highest NETT grossers in India.
1. Bahubali 2 - The Conclusion - 7,04,00,00,000 apprx
Bahubali 2 - The Conclusion (Hindi) has become the highest grossing Hindi film of all time after just two weeks as it surpassed the 374.53 crore nett of Dangal which was achieved in January this year. The film grossed a huge 141 crore nett apprx in its second week to take its total to around 386 crore nett. The weekdays in the second week were extraordinary with Wednesday even getting a boost in collections due to a holiday. The previous record for week two was 111.56 crore which has been surpassed by a huge 25%. The two week figures of Bahubali 2 - The Conclusion (Hindi) are as follows.
Week One - 2,45,00,00,000 apprx Week Two - 1,41,00,00,000 apprx Grand Total - 3,86,00,00,000 apprx
Dangal did gross 387.28 crore nett in all languages but that figure was surpassed by Bahubali 2 - The Conclusion in five days flat and the all languages collections till date for Bahubali 2 - The Conclusion have gone over 775 crore nett.
Bahubali 2 - The Conclusion is also the highest grosser in every circuit barring Nizam / Andhra, Mysore, Tamil Nadu / Kerala as these circuits had a very limited release as it was released mainly in regional languages there. The fair value figure for the film is 425 crore after two weeks if it had released like a Dangal, Bajrangi Bhaijaan or PK.
Bahubali 2 - The Conclusion (Hindi) shows no signs of stopping as it collected 9.50 crore nett on its third Friday which is another record. The film has now created a record on every day since release by having the highest collecting day from the first day till the fifteenth day and this looks to continue. The film is now standing at close to 400 crore nett and it seems to looking at a 500 crore nett apprx finish. If it falls short of 500 crore it will be by very small margins and some film in the next few weeks will have to do well to dent its run a little. The third Friday of Dangal was 6.20 crore nett and Bahubali 2 is smashing this record by distances. The figures of Bahubali 2 - The Conclusion (Hindi) till date are as follows.
Week One - 2,45,00,00,000 apprx Week Two - 1,41,00,00,000 apprx Week Three - 9,50,00,000 apprx (Friday) Grand Total - 3,95,50,00,000 apprx
The Hindi version is now a bigger blockbuster than 3 Idiots, Dhoom 3 PK, Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Dangal and since 1994 it has Raja Hindustani, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, Gadar Ek Prem Katha and Hum Aapke Hain Kaun ahead of it and it sure to beat some of these in the coming weeks.
Bahubali 2 - The Conclusion (Hindi) is continuing to break all records with a third weekend of 41.50 crore nett which is around 10 crore nett higher than the previous record of Dangal. This film is like a universal blockbuster that used to come years back. Recently we have seen huge blockbusters like 3 idiots, Bajrangi Bhaijaan, PK and Dangal as universal despite they do lag in certain parts of the country but that was because you think the dynamics of box office are like that. But then this sort of film comes and reminds one that even today that mega universal blockbuster can still happen. The figures of Bahubali 2 - The Conclusion (Hindi) till date are as follows.

Baahubali 2’s Worldwide Box Office Collections (All Languages) Stand At 1450 Crores
This hurricane has no stopping!
By Koimoi.com Team - May 17, 2017
Prabhas and Rana Daggubati starrer Baahubali 2: The Conclusion is currently making history in Indian cinema globally through its immense success at the box office. Setting new benchmarks and records each passing day, Baahubali 2 has made sure to make it difficult for Bollywood biggies in the future at the worldwide market.
So far, the magnum opus has grossed 1189 crores (nett. 925 crores) in India (All Versions) and 261 crores at the overseas markets. This Rajamouli directorial now stands with a worldwide collections of 1450 crores; heading towards the 1500 crore benchmark.
Interestingly, the Hindi version itself has contributed 447.50 crores nett in India, while North America has contributed around 122 crores in its overseas box office.
While there are pirated copies of the movie floating around, the visual brilliance and significance of the film have compelled people to head to the cinema halls to watch the movie; not once but twice and thrice. Running in 4K in Dolby Atmos, the sounds and scenes of the film can only be enjoyed on 70mm and the audience has understood this quite clearly.
Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh, who recently watched the film, has been swept over by the south magnum opus. He is in total awe of S.S Rajamouli’s creation as he tweeted, “‘Baahubali’. OMFG”.
Even SRK said, recently, that the success of a movie like “Baahubali” is an example of how there’s no glory without guts. “I saw ‘Baahubali’ part one. Unfortunately, I have not seen part two yet. It’s an extremely inspiring film and I think it holds true for part two as well. Not just the success with numbers but the vision, just the thought… No guts, no glory… and ‘Baahubali’ stands for that,” said Shah Rukh Khan.
Starring Prabhas and Rana Daggubati as the male protagonists, the film is about the warring battle between them for the ownership of an ancient kingdom. Anushka Shetty, Tamannaah Bhatia, Ramya Krishnan and Sathyaraj played pivotal roles in the film.
Bahubali 2 - The Conclusion (Hindi) grossed 67.25 crore nett in its third week which is another record as it is the highest third week collection of all time. The previous record was the 44.02 crore nett of Dangal and Bahubali 2 has gone past it by leaps and bounds. The total collection of the film is around 456 crore nett in three weeks.
The film is now the first Hindi film past 600 crore GROSS box office as it has a total of 633 crore. This is more than the Worldwide figures of all Hindi films barring Dangal and PK. The records normally get harder in the fourth and fifth weeks but not for this film as it continues its run towards 500 crore nett. The figures of Bahubali 2 - The Conclusion (Hindi) till date are as follows.
Week One - 2,46,47,00,000
Week Two - 1,42,52,00,000
Friday - 67,25,00,000 apprx
Grand Total - 4,56,24,00,000 apprx (Three Weeks)
Bahubali 2 - The Conclusion will face major competition for the first time as far as the Hindi belt is concerned with the release of Half Girlfriend but it will easily stand up to the film and maybe even give it competition on Saturday and Sunday as the families flock again to watch the film.
The all India total is a huge record but what it is doing as far as circuits records go is even better. It looks to set circuits records by more than 50% in many circuits.
Bahubali - The Conclusion has become the first film in Hindi to gross 750 crore Worldwide. The film is now not only the highest grossing Hindi film in India but also worldwide. The film has easily beaten the previous record of Dangal which grossed around 702 crore worldwide in Hindi
These figures have come despite the film not being an outright Hindi film like Dangal, PK, Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Sultan. It could go to 800 crore worldwide which will be another first. The Overseas contribution is limited at around $12 million but India is simply phenomenal. Below are the top ten highest Hindi Worldwide grossers till date.
1. Bahubali 2 - The Conclusion - 7,50,00,00,000 apprx
Aamir Khan says it's unfair to compare his film Dangal with S.S. Rajamouli's Baahubali 2: The Conclusion as both of them have their own space!
By Koimoi.com Team -May 25, 2017
Superstar Aamir Khan says it’s unfair to compare his film Dangal with S.S. Rajamouli’s Baahubali 2: The Conclusion, both of which have crossed collections of Rs 1500 crore at the box office worldwide, as both of them have their own space.
“I am really happy that ‘Dangal‘ is getting appreciated in China and all over the world. I don’t think we should compare two films. ‘Baahubali 2‘ is a very successful film. I haven’t watched it yet but I am hearing a lot of good stuff about it from everyone around me. I would like to congratulate Rajamouli and his entire team,” Aamir said on Wednesday.
“I feel we shouldn’t make a comparison between ‘Dangal‘ and ‘Baahubali 2‘ because both films are good in their own space and above all both films are Indian films which are making its mark all over the world. I am very proud of ‘Baahubali’ as well,” he added on the sidelines of the grand premiere of Sachin Tendulkar’s Sachin: A Billion Dreams.
Dangal got a new lease of life after it released in China a few weeks ago. Aamir was a popular Bollywood face in China thanks to the success of “3 Idiots” and “PK“.
Dangal currently stands with global collections of 1564.86 crores. In fact, the movie has already crossed 1000 crores mark in the International circuit solely. The overseas total of Dangal is now 1022.52 crores, thus becoming the 1st Indian film to achieve this feat at the International box office.
On the other hand, Baahubali 2 now stands with a nett India total of around 1006.50 crores.
Bahubali 2 - The Conclusion (Hindi) had a huge fifth Friday with around 1.75 crore nett which has taken the lifetime close to 490 crore nett. The collections in Mumbai circuit have hit 180 (PK and Dangal 104 crore) crore nett while East Punjab has crossed a huge benchmark of 50 crore nett (previous record Dangal 44.35 crore nett).
The film has now set daily records for 29 days in a row and is looking set for the highest fifth week collection of all time. It could be the first film to cross 10 crore nett in its fifth week. The records will be harder to come by next week but with such an extraordinary run till date that is irrelevant. The figures of Bahubali 2 - The Conclusion (Hindi) till date are as follows.

The film boasts of some never seen before action scenes. The grand premiere of the film was scheduled ahead of the film's release but it was called off due to superstar Vinod Khanna's demise which left the film industry in remorse.
Bahubali 2 Is The Biggest Hindi Blockbuster This Century
Thursday 08 June 2017 12.00 IST
Box Office India Trade Network
Bahubali 2 - The Conclusion has emerged the biggest Hindi blockbuster this century as it became a bigger blockbuster than Gadar Ek Prem Katha (2001). Bahubali 2 has notched up 5.21 crore footfalls in Hindi in five weeks beating Gadar Ek Prem Katha which was 5.06 crore. These two films stand head and shoulders above the rest this century with both topping 5 crore footfalls. The others lag well behind with Dangal on 3.61 crore, Bajrangi Bhaijaan on 3.54 crore and PK on 3.50 crore. Bahubali 2 in Hindi is not the biggest blockbuster ever as Hum Aapke Hain Kaun had 7.40 crore footfalls in 1994 and there will probably be 8-10 other films topping 5 crore footfalls.
Basically Bahubali 2 (Hindi) is the biggest blockbuster this century and the second biggest blockbuster in the last 25 years after Hum Aapke Hain Kaun. In terms of all time it is probably in the Hindi top ten or at least very close to the top ten. The biggest achievement by Bahubali 2 (Hindi) is that 5 crore footfalls have come after 16 years and it looked as if it would never happen because films were struggling to even get close to 4 crore. This film has shown that blockbusters of epic proportions that can compete with legendary blockbusters are still possible. We were in a period that records were being broken every year or two but Bahubali 2 will change this as when in history a film like this has come then records have stuck for sometime. The hope will be that it does not take another 16 years to have a blockbuster of this level. The biggest Hindi blockbusters of the last 25 years with the adjusted nett gross (the older films are adjusted for 2016 levels as there is no Average Ticket Price for 2017 yet) are as follows.
1. Hum Aapke Hain Kaun - 7,05,00,00,000 2. Bahubali 2 - 5,04,00,00,000 apprx (40 Days) 3. Gadar Ek Prem Katha - 4,82,00,00,000 4. Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge - 4,58,00,00,000 5. Raja Hindustani - 3,90,00,00,000
Bahubali 2 - The Conclusion (all languages) has close to 10 crore footfalls across India which is more than Hum Aapke Hain Kaun though its in four languages compared to the one of Hum Aapke Hain Kaun and even if we add Hum Aapke Hain Kaun in Telugu then Bahubali 2 (all languages) still remains well ahead.
If we take the 10 crore footfalls it still probably is not the biggest blockbuster ever in India as Mother India (1957), Mughal E Azam (1960) and Sholay (1975) will have more footfalls than Hum Aapke Hain Kaun and at least one if not all three will be more than 10 crore and they were just one format films.
Bahubali 2 Beats Many Long Running Blockbusters In Week Seven
Wednesday 21 June 2017 12.00 IST
Box Office India Trade Network
Bahubali - The Conclusion (Hindi) has racked up huge collections in the seventh week of over 2 crore nett. Despite having huge records in the early weeks the film is still competing with long running films of the previous decades in its seventh week.
It has the fifth highest seventh week of all time and is just 50 lakhs off the second highest placed film which had tax exemptions. It has beaten long running blockbusters like Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Kaho Naa... Pyaar Hai. The film was being screened on around 350 theatres on its 50th day as far as the Hindi version goes. For Comparison with recent films, the collections of Dangal in week seven were 97 lakhs nett, Bajrangi Bhaijaan was 65 lakhs nett and PK was 45 lakhs nett. Below are the top ten seventh weeks of all time of the year.
1. Gadar Ek Prem Katha (2001) - 4,95,00,000
2. Lage Raho Munnabhai (2006) - 2,96,00,000 (Tax Free in Maharashtra and Delhi)
Bahubali 2 (Hindi) Is Mission Impossible For Others
Wednesday 21 June 2017 12.30 IST
Box Office India Trade Network
Bahubali - The Conclusion is coming to the end of its run and it will be a 508 crore nett (705 GROSS) finish and it has probably stopped the trend where all time records are broken every few years. This is because films like PK and Dangal were doing phenomenally well but they were not those great ALL TIME BLOCKBUSTERS which got 5 crore people to the theatres like a Sholay, Hum Aapke Hain Kaun or Gadar which led to these films holding records for years. There will be so many huge films in the next 2-3 years that will be expected to challenge Bahubali - The Conclusion but the sort of cinema being made by our industry means Bahubali - The Conclusion is a safe bet until the ticket rates get high enough for a 525 crore nett figure to come with 3.5-4 crore footfalls. The new GST tax may help a little if that is the only tax but then the comparison becomes GROSS as the box office dynamics have changed and 700 crore GROSS won't be there.
There will be talk about if the content is great then the records will be smashed but its not exactly about CONTENT here but CONVICTION. There is a type of storytelling which delivers huge numbers which we have seen with Dangal or Bajrangi Bhaijaan and then you add the formula cinema with melodrama which Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Dangal have but subtly. A Bahubali - The Conclusion celebrates this cinema unabashedly without subtly and thats the difference. The content of Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Dangal cannot be faulted in any. Bahubali 2 is basically on the lines of a Suraj (1966) or a Dharam Veer (1977) and many others where a prince goes to a neighboring area and falls in love with a princess who is loved by a joker prince. The prince proves to be the hero and wins the girl and brings her back but his family members have stirred up trouble and he looses his crown which he has to get back. Its a simple story done many times in the history of our cinema.
This sort of cinema today needs conviction more than at any other time as there is a very fine line of it falling flat on its face and being ridiculed or becoming Bahubali - The Conclusion and the fact is that no filmmaker in the Hindi film industry will have this conviction as won't believe in this cinema, and if you don't believe in it then you can't make the audience believe. The great filmmakers of Hindi cinema like Mehboob Khan, Raj Kapoor, Raj Khosla, Manmohan Desai and Manoj Kumar had this conviction and that is why they had such huge blockbusters similar to Bahubali 2 - The Conclusion. These guys must have around 10-12 films between doing 4-5 crore footfalls or even more. There were no other forms to watch films then like television or video but this is equaled up by the fact that the population has doubled since then.
At the time these legends made films it was an audience and today this audience has become single screen audience, multiplex audience, big city audience, small city audience, evolved audience, leave your brains behind audience and what not. When an audience is divided in such a way where will the conviction come as everybody may say they stay true to the script but the fact that this audience may not accept that or that audience may not accept this is there no matter what anyone says. When the thinking is that the audience is one these things become secondary. This is actually what Bahubali - The Conclusion proves that its still just an audience and a good film will work with all. In fact not just Bahubali - The Conclusion but any blockbuster proves this but at varying levels. The level of Bahubali - The Conclusion will only come if makers believe in this type of cinema, the audience does as can be seen in the results but its pretty certain that no big Hindi film director will green light a story like Bahubali - The Conclusion.
There will be people in our industry that will see the grandeur and scale of the film as the reason for its huge success and if one attempts to replicate on this belief it will lead to disaster as in our cinema the story and the way its told holds much more importance. Simply put the Bahubali - The Conclusion numbers are here to stay for a long time, in time its 508 crore nett will be crossed but those 5.25 crore footfalls is another mission altogether.
Although its a long shot, the hope is that one of our Hindi filmmakers pulls in over 5 crore people into the theatres and gives that historic blockbuster as this will change Hindi cinema for sure and for the better. At the moment, the industry sees S.S. Rajamouli at another level and playing in a different league in a different industry so it does not change much but when one of your own guy goes and does the unthinkable then the picture does changes as others believe we can also achieve that. .
Bahubali 2 - The Conclusion (Hindi) is heading towards a 100 day run as it continues to play in many big cities. Its rare for a film to hit 100 days and even if it does it soes somehow get there it is normally just one screen in either Mumbai or Pune. Here with Bahubali 2 - The Conclusion it could be around 10 screens. The twelfth saw the film i around 25 screens. The film only saw a drop in collections withe release of Tubelight. The distributor share of the film in Hindi is 251 crore and across India in all languages it is 625 crore which is 100 crore more than Dangal plus PK plus Bajrangi Bhaijaan. The weekly figures of Bahubali 2 - The Conclusion (Hindi) till date are as follows.
