baahubali-puliThe two big movies of South cinema Filmmaker S.S Rajamouli’s magnum opus “Baahubali and Actor Vijay’s Puli were always been compared because of their budget and genre .

After release “Baahubali: The Beginning”, the first part in a two-part war drama, has set the cash registers ringing by grossing approximately Rs.60+ crore gross on the first day worldwide. Whereas Puli has managed to collect 21+ crore gross on its first day, which is half the amount of Baahubali. However, first things first Puli Telugu version was not released, which might had fetched around 8 crore gross.

Puli failed to take a phenomenal start, despite of viral marketing of the film across the social media and traditional print and electronic media . The main reason for the film’s poor show is the content of the film. The movie plot is a fantasy plot with all elements that would rag kids but the skin show of the lady in the film is making a difference. Ap[art , compared top Baahubali, the VFX is not up to the mark , not gripping content, poor screenplay making the film not to set records at Box Office.
