Have you yet been to theaters to watch Bahubali: The conclusion? If yes, you have lived the dream of S Rajamauli. And if not, just go, don’t think, just go, because you are missing the world out there! Yes, a world! A world of Mahesmati kingdom!
The second edition of S Rajamauli’s dream project Bahubali has been released on over nine thousand screen worldwide with more than 6500 screens in India, breaking all the records. It became the first movie in India to be released on such a grand scale.
Hail to the direction of S Rajamauli for the emotional rollercoaster in the film! But the epic saga of Bahubali wouldn’t have been possible without the efforts of various organizations working to bring down the imagination of their director on the celluloid. Yes, I am talking about the VFX! So Hail to the VFX supervisor RC Kamalkannan for his successful portrayal of the kingdom of unforgettable beauty on celluloid screen, The Mahesmati Kingdom! The waterfalls, the mountains, the epic palace, the courthouse, the war sequences, everything is a treat to the eyes!
Worked with S Rajamauli in past, RC Kamalkannan was very aware of the non compromising attitude of his director when it comes to work. So finishing Bahubali on time, as he said was the biggest challenge for him. The film has nearly two thousands five hundreds VFX shots, which includes thirteen thousands five hundred tasks. And thus to finish things on time, RC Kamalkannan roped in almost 35 studios worldwide with Hyderabad-based Makuta VFX as the principle VFX studio of the film.
He is very aware of the fact that everyone is not specialized in everything. Same goes for VFX studios. So he decided to go for task-based outsourcing of VFX shots. To those 35 VFX studio involved, he provided them with only those shots in which they hold the specialty. Like kingdom was designed by Makuta, war sequences were designed by EFX and Firefly of Hyderabad, bull fighting was designed by Tau films USA etc. He worked with a small studio in Uzbekistan to studios in UK and USA, along with enrolling almost all VFX studios in India.
