As the biggest Indian release, Baahubali: The Conclusion has already generated a lot of buzz. With the movie hitting the theatres this Friday, fans are rushing in to book their tickets for the weekend. However, they were in for a big shock as the online booking shows that the theatres are charging Rs 400 per person while the ticket prices have been Rs 150 till date.
Online booking also made it compulsory that the viewers buy combo packs worth Rs. 250, along with Rs. 150 ticket. The fans are being forced to buy these combo packs that includes Coke, popcorn, samosa etc irrespective of whether they need it or not. Upset by this development, the fans expressed their concern to some Consumer Forum officials who asserted that that it was against the rules to force the viewers to buy combo packs along with the tickets.
All the cinema chains, and online booking services have been sending messages to their customers about the advance booking. Some are offering extra discount or other lucrative offers with the tickets, making the deal even more sweet. Well, all we can say is that the war is about to begin.
If you are living under the rock and confused about all the hype around the upcoming film, you need to know that the film has changed the manner in which India perceives cinema. It has paved way for more VFX-heavy movies. And when we say VFX, we mean good VFX, and not Armaan Kohli-turning-into-a-giant-snake sort of CGI.

Certainly, after Baahubali, Indian makers have seen the potential that is there in the VFX infused genre
