Last year, on April 28, one of the biggest movies of all times, Baahubali: The Conclusion hit theatres. After the first part became a blockbuster, the second part was a highly-awaited affair. The buzz around the movie went on to grow further with the release of the epic trailer. Above all, fans were desperately waiting to know why Kattappa had killed Baahubali. Other films even went as far as clearing the way for the magnum opus a fortnight prior to its release. When the movie finally hit theatres, it created furore all over the world. The movie was lauded for its exemplary VFX, compelling storyline, powerful characters and SS Rajamouli's fabulous direction. To top it all, it stormed the box office right from day 1. The film became the first film to earn more than Rs 100 crore in one day. It went on to become the first film to enter the Rs 1000 crore club. Post the stupendous success of Baahubali, 28th April is now being looked at in new light. It is now the most sought-after release date! Why do we say so? Well, because three South films are releasing around the same time. Let's take a look:
Kaala Karikaalan - Rajinikanth's next with Pa Ranjith is all set take the world by a storm on April 27. Initially, Thalaiva's sci-fi film was to release on the same day, but it has now been replaced by his gangsta' drama. This film is about a powerful don from Mumbai. Interestingly, Rajinikanth played a don in his previous film as well but this time his avatar has taken on a desi twist. The film also stars Huma Qureshi and Nana Patekar.
Bharat Ane Nenu - Much before Rajinikanth announced Kaala, the makers of Mahesh Babu's next had locked in on this release date. This film, with Koratala Siva, is touted to be a political thriller. Reportedly he will play a Chief Minister in the film. The actor will star opposite Kiara Advani for the first time. The last time Mahesh Babu and Koratala came together, they created Srimanthudu, that went on to become a big hit. This film is set to hit theatres on April 26.
Naa Peru Surya - This Allu Arjun film is set to release on April 26. It's about a military officer who has anger issues. Allu Arjun has gone through a complete transformation for this film. Reportedly a US-based trainer helped him achieve this chiselled look for the movie. He will star opposite Anu Emmanuel.
As you can see, not one but three films have taken over this now popular date. Hey Baahubali, look what you have done!
