The release of SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali in 2015 revolutionized South Indian cinema, introducing the concept of multi-part films. Its monumental success paved the way for ambitious projects like KGF and Mani Ratnam’s Ponniyin Selvan, which further showcased the potential of this format.
Now, all eyes are on Prabhas, the charismatic actor whose star power will shine in two highly anticipated multi-part films—Salaar and ProjectK. The South Indian film industry has embraced and excelled in this format, pushing boundaries and captivating audiences with grand storytelling.
In contrast, Bollywood struggles to replicate the success of Baahubali and KGF, highlighting the innovative spirit of South Indian filmmakers. Multi-part films succeed not just because of their visual extravaganza, but also because of their capacity to captivate audiences through intriguing narrative.
Prabhas becomes a driving force behind ambitious initiatives that grab audiences’ imaginations thanks to his global stardom from Baahubali. As Bollywood bets high on the multiverse of Brahmasthra, the industry seeks to unlock the formula for success with film franchises that match the grandeur of their southern counterparts. Ultimately, the South Indian film industry continues to push boundaries and explore uncharted territories, leaving an indelible mark on Indian cinema as it pioneers the art of multi-part storytelling.
