As expected Baahubali 2 has opened to thunderous response in all over India. This was evident from the advance booking which was the highest for any film beating the likes of Sultan and Dangal.
The Hindi version of the film has also opened with bumper response in the morning shows. It has started with 80% occupancy which is the highest of 2017 and is also the second bumper opener since Sultan. Baahubali 2 Hindi version is sure to collect over 30 crore on the opening day and might even challenge some all time records. In terms of initial, the film is better than Sultan, Dangal and PRDP but has less number of screens.
The film might become slow in the noon shows which generally happens with such hyped films. Also there was a hysteria among fans to know why Kattapa killed Baahubali which led them to watch the first day first show. If the film continues with the same pace, then it can set opening records in many Hindi circuits. This will be an unprecedented achievement considering that it is a dubbed film. Though all India Hindi record would be out of reach as South will see the release of Telugu and Tamil versions.
Depending on the evening/night shows, it might come close to break the non-holiday opening record which is currently held by Dhoom 3. Baahubali 2 Hindi version will also record the biggest opening for any dubbed film. In fact, it will beat the lifetime of all such films except Baahubali on the first day itself.
Baahubali 2 opening day collection will also beat the lifetime collection of Bollywood films like Phillauri, OK Jaanu, and Rangoon.
