Sony MAX will celebrate 5 years of Bahubali: The Beginning through a special telecast of the Prabhas and Rana Daggubati starrer on July 11 at 8PM. Five years since its release, Bahubali: The Beginning, has continued to maintain a special place in every Bollywood fan’s heart with its high-octane stunts, gripping storyline and a stellar cast.
The movie that first hit the screens on July 10, 2015, features superstar Prabhas, Rana Duggubati and Tamanna Bhatia in the lead roles who were supported by Ramya Krishnan, Sathyaraj, Anushka Shetty, and Nassar. The first of two cinematic parts, the film follows Shiva, an adventurous young man who helps his love Avanthika rescue Devasena, the former queen of Mahishmati who is now a prisoner under the tyrannical rule of king Bhallaladeva. The movie concludes with probably one of the most intriguing suspense scenes of all time, leaving fans with the question, “Katappa Ne Bahubali ko Kyun Maara?”
The movie is also fondly remembered for its pioneering VFX, production design and cinematography by V. Srinivas Mohan, Sabu Cyril and K. K. Senthil Kumar respectively. The film’s brilliant soundtracks and background score were composed by M. M. Keeravani (M.M. Kreem).
Samay Thakkar, Hindi voice-over-artist for Katappa’s character
“Even after the 5 years of the film’s launch, I think the one thing that stood out is the passion and brilliant performances by all the lead actors and supporting cast. Rajamouli sir’s direction has been remarkable too. The creative storytelling with the on-point humour element by Katappa’s character makes the film a full-time entertainer. I can never get bored of watching the film on Sony MAX whenever it airs. The movie even 5 years after the release still feels fresh.”
