Baahubali 2, Baahubali 2 collection, dangal, dangal collection, aamir khan, SS Rajamouli Dangal vs Baahubali 2 box office: Ambitious in scale and vision, Baahubali and Dangal phenomenon wouldn’t have been possible a few years ago.

They were huge risks on paper. Ambitious in scale and vision, Baahubali and Dangal phenomenon wouldn’t have been possible a few years ago. But as both films took flight on the first day at the box office, there was little that could challenge their titanic wave. If SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali: The Conclusion was a triumph of imagination, Aamir Khan’s Dangal was closer to home, a perfect concoction of emotions and aspirations. If Baahubali 2 took you to forgotten lands of ancient India, Dangal reminded you once again that stories with a heart can do as well as any technical wizardry. And now, after going neck-to-neck for many days, Dangal has managed to outrun Baahubali 2 at the box office. Not just that, Aamir Khan’s film is among the top 10 earners for the week in a list that also features Priyanka Chopra, Dwayne Johnson-starrer Baywatch.

Baahubali 2 and Dangal have crossed Rs 1600-crore mark, a first for any Indian movie. SS Rajamouli film is still growling at the box office and has collected Rs 1623 crore. Aamir Khan’s Dangal has amassed an astounding Rs 1662 crore. The Hindi version of Baahubali 2, after shattering a pile of records, has collected Rs 489.40 crore and is marching towards Rs 500-crore club, an unprecedented milestone for any Hindi film. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh and Ramesh Bala shared the latest box office figures on their Twitter pages.

SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali 2 has not only conquered box office but has also redefined the art of storytelling. The Prabhas film is set in Mahishmati kingdom and is about an epic battle between an evil king and its rightful heir. That doesn’t mean that film is bereft of essential elements of a typical ‘masala’ film and has large dollops of action, dance and drama.

Dangal, on the other hand, is set in rural Haryana and is a heartfelt story about a father’s indefatigable spirit to defy all odds. In his journey to make his daughters world wrestling champions, the father holds a mirror to a society gripped with certain prejudices and parochial mindset.

      Bahubali 2 is true winner, i have seen the families in south india showed their interest to watch Bahubali 2. One more reason, when Dandal Released, it was released on 23.12.2016. When Bahubali 2 released 28.04.2017. Bahubali 2 collected the revenue just like and broke the all the records with Four Weeks. The True Winner is Bahubali 2 no doubt about that

        Why is South India getting jealous of Dangal's success..probably unable to digest that it beat South Indian films..Practically I did not find anything fascinating about Baahubali 2(B2). In fact Baahubali was much better than B2..be it story tel or visual effects. It was bit difficult to imagine how one question (why kattappa killed baahubali) can make so many such a big fool. I would even say that Dangal collections may have been manipulated as anything is possible..but as a movie..Dangal is far better than Baahubali 2 as Baahubali 2 action sequences seemed over the top, if baahubali had been a superhero, I would have believed all..but in this, seemed like all went wrong... now i know that there would be many replies with bad language, bad mouthing, cal names, but I am pretty much sure that everyone's inner fee would be that Dangal and Baahubali 1 were better movies than Baahubali 2.

          Indian movies now far better now - good story, matured acting, good graphics. It need to be more imaginative getting out of family dramas and period stories. Then Indian films will rule the world.

            Many mistakes in Dangal. No doubt Dangal is a nice movie but Referee is changed during fight scene. Deepika Padukone's movie is still ahead then the Aamir. LOL.
