With the 3-hour visual treat, it is no surprise that SS Rajamouli’s magnum opus ‘Baahubali’, which was released this year, has amassed over Rs 600 crore at the worldwide Box Office.
Of course we know the scenic backgrounds in the movie were generated with the help of some amazing computer effects, but now we know that the techniques used are equally mesmerising.
A video on Hyderabad-based graphics company Makuta VFX's channel on YouTube explains how some of the scenes from the film were conceptualized and shot.
Get ready to be amused.
The famous shot where Ramya Krishnan was shown carrying a baby in her palm through the heavy currents of a river, wasn't a baby, it was actually a bottle of water.
No waterfall, it was just a blue screen.
Prabhas hanging on the rocks with waterfalls in the backdrop, was stunning VFX. There was a crane to lift him up.
And this is how Prabahs crossed the deadly narrow passage.
There were no real elephants used in the movie.
There were no temples either.
This is how simple green screens were turned into forests.
