Here's why SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali should not be compared to Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati
Baahubali: The Conclusion has created a tornado at the box office. The movie has broken all the records and now people are wondering if Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati, which is another high budget film, will be able to give tough competition to it. But, do you really think it is fair to compare two films? Here is why it is wrong to measure these films on a same scale.
Baahubali is a revenge saga whereas Padmavati is based on the real-life story of Rani Padmini. Despite being high budget movies, both the projects deal with different subjects. Sanjay Leela Bhansali has faced many troubles while shooting for the film due to its sensitive subject.
Filmmakers SS Rajamouli and Sanjay Leela Bhansali have diverse ways of telling stories. Baahubali beautifully captured war sequences and in Bhansali’s world, music plays an important role.
Prabhas became the darling of the masses after the first part got released. Though the actor was popular in the south but he reached Hindi audiences with this film. But in case of Padmavati, Bhansali already have some popular stars like Shahid Kapoor, Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh on board.
It is worthy to mention that Prabhas dedicated almost five years of his life to Baahubali and didn’t take any project in between. You may not find this kind of dedication in any Bollywood star.
Baahubali is a cinematic gem that wonderfully used special effects. The box office numbers speak for themselves and the film is above any kind of comparisons. So, the only this that Baahubali has done is it has raised the standard for Padmavati.
