Biggest films to hit cinemas after the given Baahubali bonanza and much awaited by the Tamil film lovers Superstar Rajnikanth and Shankar’s “2 Pointe O” is all set for release on Nov 29.
Though it’s not a challenge for this Robo sequel to beat Baahubali series, the making costs involved in bringing out this film are pushing it seriously to beat that magnum opus. With almost 400 crores investment riding on it, there is no way than to beat Baahubali at the box office, for 2 Point O to push itself into a break-even mode.
Apart from the 3D visuals that are promised at various theatres of 2 Point O, the film will be releasing in 4D sound as well in some theatres. And then, it is releasing in a total of 6800 screens, to make sure that it will mint the whole of its production cost in the first week alone. If we compare screen count, Baahubali 2 was released in 6500 screens across the globe.
Made with a massive budget of Rs. 600 crores, the magnum opus is slated for a grand release on November 29th. However, it is not a cakewalk to beat ‘Baahubali’ record. With the buyers betting big up to 400 crores on the movie, the film has to beat the ‘Baahubali’ records to reach the break-even point itself. So, the makers are planning a massive release for the film. Apart from the 3D visuals that are promised at various theatres, the movie is going to be released with 4D sound as well. Also ‘2.O’ is going to hit 6800 screens whereas ‘Baahubali 2’ was released in 6500 screens across the world. In Telugu states itself, the film has to rake more than Rs. 80 crores share to keep all the distributors on the same side
In Telugu states alone, now 2 Point O has to score more than 80 crores share to make sure that all the parties involved in distribution will be in safe shores. Though the makers haven’t sold the whole of Telugu version, it is being released by NV Prasad, Dil Raju and UV Creations.
With these big names around, there will be no deficit of theatres, but the film’s content has to impress audiences to make it big in this unseason.
