Filmmakers from other languages became envious after the sensation Rajamouli created with his magnum opus Baahubali. One can understand the feelings of the top directors from other languages after Baahubali attained international stardom and elevated the standard of Indian cinema.
Those makers who targeted Baahubali and boasted that they will break the records till now are unable to become successful. Bollywood makers who have the market across the country are unable to come with one film which can come near Baaubali. All their attempts to dismantle Baahubali failed at the box office.
Be it Bajirao Mastani, Padmavat, Thugs of Hindustan failed miserably. Though Bajirao Mastani and Padmavat won critical acclaim they didn’t get the desired collections. After the release of Ashutosh Gowarikar's Panipat, Bollywood media and folks are raising their collars saying that Baahubali records would be blown away.
However, the problem with Bollywood directors and directors from other languages is they think they are the intellectuals. Their taking too will be in a similar style. Though Rajamouli has even better talent and creativity, he makes sure that each and every scene in his films gets connected to all movie lovers.
Not only Multiplex movie lovers but also B, C center viewers will experience the same emotions and feelings. This is possible only to Rajamouli. Everyone knows about Ashutosh Gowariker. Though he comes with historical backdrop films, his films fail to connect with B, C centres as they appeal to A centres. He donot think in the lines of making B, C centres viewers whistle for the scenes, the elevation of heroes and dialogues. So Panipat, however great it may be, it will be once again get confined to only a particular section of movie lovers and this automatically reduces its reach and collections.
To beat Baahubali, the so called intellectuals should bring tone it down, come to the level of the movie lovers like Rajamouli and try to entertain them.
