Baahubali 2 frenzy grips Hyderabad
If you have suddenly experienced heavy traffic on your way to office and you see thousands of people queuing up in front of box offices in search of tickets right now, then you are only witnessing the mad rush that has grappled the nation, an exodus that goes by the name Bahubali 2: The conclusion. The scale of the film has surely surpassed all of its predecessors and now, the frenzy is sure to surpass everything that Indian cinema has ever witnessed.
So much so, the fateful Wednesday saw every single multiplex being sold out in Hyderabad as all of them were selling Bahubali tickets. If you could peek into the queues, you would see joyous faces celebrating because they managed to get hold of a ticket. On the other hand, there were defeated faces too because the ticket was sold out for the day.
Offline, online- the madness everywhere
The madness is not limited to the offline queues. BookMyShow, a popular app that provides tickets to all major multiplexes in the various cities across the country, shows that in Hyderabad, Baahubali 2 has all tickets sold out. This is fascinating considering online tickets charge even more. So, people are not bothering about shelling out extra cash as long as they don’t have to bother about the queue.
Twitter and Facebook are full of videos shared by passers-by about the length of the queues and the madness in the heat. In fact, some multiplexes were in the midst of some controversy as people accused them of charging extra. On the other hand, some multiplexes have been pushing out good films and the distributors of these films have complained too as these screens are looking to make extra space for Baahubali.
It’s a pan-India symptom
The madness at Hyderabad is not something surprising since it is the case in all other states in south and even in the north. People have queued up from 6 AM in the morning to get hold of these tickets. Various states, struck by the unprecedented surge, have issued orders to not sell tickets at extremely high price due to insane demand. All the stars have done the publicity business pretty well, it seems and the hype around it is off the charts. The government is making sure that no theatre can do any tax evasion in this hullabaloo as it is an excellent administrative opportunity to gather some extra money.
