‘Baahubali: The Beginning’ not only earned praise (and hundreds of crores at the box office) in India but has made a name for itself overseas as well. Recently Popular Hollywood web portal (screenrant.com) has placed Baahubali among the 15 foreign blockbusters Hollywood wishes they’d made. Baahubali which is the only Indian film to enter the category, ranks at no 12. No other Indian film made into the list.
Scrrenrant ranked the Tamil-Telegu bilingual 12th in its list, writing, “This list could not go without an entry from Hollywood’s biggest rival, Bollywood. One of the most hugely invested and massively productive national film industries in the world, with more than 1500 films each year,
”Indian cinema is known for its flamboyant, wildly imaginative extravaganzas. South Indian director S.S. Rajamouli’s historical/fantasy epic ‘Baahubali: The Beginning’ is one of its most magnificent creations.”
The list also includes other international hits and critically acclaimed films like Thailand’s ‘Ong Bak’, Brazillian film ‘The City of God’, French film ‘Amelie’, and Akira Kurosawa’s Japanese classic ‘Ran’.
