It is a special Friday, as SS Rajamouli’s big budget extravaganza Baahubali is releasing wide in Telugu and Tamil in Tamil Nadu. No bilingual has released so wide in TN, in nearly 400 screens in two languages.
The advance booking for Baahubali has been spectacular, and pressure for tickets especially the Telugu version is very high. All multiplex big screens in Chennai are playing Telugu version of the film. In Mayajaal they will be playing nearly 60 shows in Tamil and Telugu.
There are four other Tamil releases - Kamaraj, Ore Oru Raja Mokkaraja, Maharani Kottai and Miss Pannidatheenga Apram Varuthapaduveenga.
The lone English release is The Gallows. There are no new releases in Hindi and Malayalam.
