You are saying as Baahubali 2 was a slow starrer but later collect huge due to WOM..
Or Prabhas was a huge superstar & have lots of industry hit outside the Baahubali 1 & 2 ( He is yet to cross 60 CR share except Baahubali 1 & 2).

answered by Director (124k points)

Slow starter means only WOM can carry the movie on its shoulder.. Baahubali 2 opened earth shatteringly, but no movie can run long without a good content. As you said Prabhas doesn't even has a industry hit except Baahubali series, so Baahubali 2 collected 1000cr only by its good content which shows starpower has very little to do with atg movies. Baahubali opened well due to the hype of Baahubali 1 but the way its performing now is beyond the reach of any superstar

Baahubali 2 open huge due to franchise factor , buzz but with Dangal ,Aamir was the only deciding factor still it's open huge.
And it's not like Baahubali 2 was the only movie which get good WOM but the way it's not only sustaining but also collecting huge , same case in bollywood many actor get good WOM but collection was not on same level what aamir movie achieve.

This is what happens when your fav star fails to get clean hit solo release 210 cr domestic 30m overseas and 400 crs ww for years

You start making excuses to somehow satisfy yourself and start attacking superstar who are giving back to back atbb atg and opening new clubs creating new benchmarks with every new release from many years now

Baahubali 2 was a nation wide brand it was a phenom thats an exception

Bollywood is a star driven industry
If you dont have star value even your content rich movies will underperform
And later you will end up cursing Indian Audience.
Contary to that if you have superstardom then even your less commercial movies will become record grossers bcz of your huge reach among audience prime example being a low budget film dangal starring a top superstar

...........you are confusing the word stardom with hype ...........

stardom takes hype to a new level..... with same product ...in fact everything same....

stardom is the catalyst.......

hype is the real thing.

Combination of both. First day collections show much the audiences want to see a particular star, after the first weekend also stardom stays in contention.

Just imagine if Pk or dangal or BB starred irffan khan, kitne log dekhne aate 3rd and 4th week mein? Content needs stardom, or else manoj vaajpayee and rajkummar rao would be superstars.

Coming to bb2, its a phenemenon like none other, cliffhanger ending in the 1st part has played a big big role, imo, this is one off....even 2.0 would not match this.

If you are correct then you must agree that READY, BODYGUARD, Dabangg 2, Dhoom3 etc are great movies.
