Ripley's Believe It or Not, Baahubali Is Flop!

"Baahubali 2: The Conclusion" is less than three weeks away from release the date. To build up the curiosity, makers had come with the idea of re-releasing “Baahubali – The Beginning” in 1000 screens across North India this Friday.

However, this innovative idea turned to be a big flop as audience did not show interest in watching “Baahubali – The Beginning” at the cinemas again. Trade reports suggest that the film received poor response from audience with very low numbers recorded everywhere. The movie could collect only Rs.40 lakhs on the day one of its release.

Audience are questioning the idea of re-release on why would anyone wants to watch an old movie in theaters when a theatre quality print is freely available online or in other medium?

Earlier in 70’s, movies such as Mughal-E-Azam were re-released as the number of films made was relatively much lower at that point of time. As a result, films that were well received at the box-office would often be re-released for audiences to go and see once again. But that is the not case now, with good quality movie prints available just within one month of release and lot many other options are available for entertainment now a days, not many show interest to watch a movie that have been released two years ago.
