The special screening of SS Rajamouli's "Baahubali" trailer in over 270 theatres across Telangana and Andhra Pradesh on Monday morning has got rave reviews from audiences.
The trailer was due to be released at its audio launch on 31 May, but the makers postponed the event due to security issues.
While they are yet to announce the revised date of its music launch, they decided to release the trailer in theatres on 1 June. Besides arranging a special screening, the makers also issued free tickets to fans in both the states.
On Sunday, SS Rajamouli tweeted: "District wise list of theatres where #BaahuBali the beginning, trailer will play free.. tomorrow at 10:30 AM. Please note multiplexes will not be able to play the trailer for free, It is attached to the running movie.. Few theatres, where the morning show starts at 10:30 or before, might have difficulty in playing the trailer 4free chk locally before you go."
As planned by the makers, the theatrical trailer of "Baahubali" was screened in several cinema halls at 10.30 am on Monday. Fans thronged the theatres screening the video in large numbers, giving the impression of a first day show of a Tollywood superstar film. The police had a tough time controlling the people outside the theatres in both the states.
The theatres resonated with fans cheering "Once more". Movie goers who watched the video say the movie is going to be a visual treat and Rajamouli's magic is sure to rock. The trailer shows that "Baahubali" has been made on par with a Hollywood movie and sure to emerge as India's biggest motion picture.
Currently, the hashtag #Baahubali is trending on Twitter and the audience are sharing their experiences. Here is a comment posted on Twitter by a fan who watched it in Sudarshan theatre.
