The most anticipated movie of the year after SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus ‘Baahubali’ is Vijay’s ‘Puli’. The trailer of the movie will hit more than 1200 screens in Andhra and Telangana itself today.
Baahubali had got 2.8 million views in just 24 hours for three versions. However, the makers of Puli are also releasing the trailer in three different languages and it will be interesting to see how many hits the Puli trailer gets in 24 hours as it is an important indicator of a film’s success.
The teaser of Puli had crossed 6.85 million since the launch, considering the response, the film Puli should break the record of Baahubali, which was able to get mere 10 million in over three months since its release.
Puli is written and directed by Chimbudevan. Mr. India fame and versatile actress Sridevi is all set to make her comeback to Tamil movies after her last Tamil film in 1986, while she made her return in Bollywood with her ‘English Vinglish’ two years ago.
Puli also stars Shruti Haasan, Hansika Motwani and Kannada actor Sudeep, who was featured in a cameo role in ‘Baahubali’ too. Vijay is playing the role of a gladiator and veteran actress Sridevi is seen in a royal costume as Soumiya, a warrior.
Everyone is mesmerized with the visual effects and CGI (Computer Generated Imagery) of SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali, however, Vijay starrer Puli has more CGI scenes than Bahubali.
In all, Puli has 2,200 scenes with graphics embedded and it is touted to be much more than SS Rajamouli’s ‘Baahubali’, which has just 2,000 graphic scenes.
It will be interesting to see how people are going to accept a movie with most of its scenes are computer graphics.
However, the bigger factor is that the number of Vijay’s fan in South India far exceed anybody’s and the film’s success depends on how they watch their hero in modern hairdo unlike Bahubali, will make the cut. Since he looks modern and the film has all the traits of Bahubali‘s success secrets, it may outshine Rajamouli’s film at least in Tamil.
However, one thing the film Puli requires badly now is that it should receive as many positive reviews to beat Bahubali before making a huge impact in terms of box office collections.
