Ep 222: “Baahubali is not pro Hindu or anti Hindu…” SS Rajamouli Interview Upodcast

We were lucky enough to attend the UK press junket for what was supposed to be the UK premiere of Baahubali The Conclusion with director SS Rajamouli in attendance.

Since the movie had already released and is a massive success we had the opportunity to dig in a little deeper about the movie and it’s reception.

We spoke about:

  • Terrible experience of seeing his movie completed the first time
  • How he sees the value of film criticism
  • Rajamouli gives his secret formula to Bollywood film makers
  • If South India feel vindicated by the success of Baahubali
  • Making a movie like Baahubali as an atheist

Pardon the obvious fanboyism in my voice and the bad acoustics in the room but I think this might be one of the best interviews we have ever had.

Baahubali The Conclusion is currently running successfully in theaters.

Lingaa Upodcast Review

Superstar Rajinikanth returns to the big screen in a live action role after 4 years with KS Ravikumar’s Lingaa. As every release of the megastar there is quite a bit of excitement and looking at the initial box office numbers, it seems to be another killer at the box office.

Although we South Indian cinema has a special place in our hearts, we are not the experts we would like to be so we called our friend Josh Hurtado, who covers a lot of Indian cinema for TwitchFilm.com.

We speak about the Rajini Effect, the expectations attached to Lingaa, Sonakshi Sinha’s South Indian debut and how Lingaa compares to Rajnikanth’s massive hits with Shankar (Sivaji- The Boss, Enthiran).

If you haven’t seen the trailer for Lingaa yet, here is it.
