Circled back around to youtube.  Tragically, the dog was sleeping and didn’t poke her head in.

  1. I was surprised Baahubali is not doing great like other indian movies in China, but you’re right, Chinese don’t need this kind of movies. Especially based on indian philosophy and mythology because they have their own.


    • This whole thing is just making me want to go on a Chinese cinema binge again.

      Red Cliff is the movie I was thinking of, John Woo’s first mainland China film, 288 minutes long with every major actor in China working on it. It’s Bahubali, but bigger.

      • Now that we are talking about it, I convinced my husband to watch Baahubali saying:” you like those Crouching Tiger kind of movies, and it’s the same, but indian”. LOL and he (having comparision to those epic chinese movies) wasn’t blown away by Baahubali.


        • What is that epic Italian classic? I want to say “The Leopard”? Fewer special effect, similar multi-generation philosophical kind of plot.

          So yeah, Bahubali is really really good, but not necessarily unique to Indian film. Oh! The Deluge!!! Poland has a ridiculously long and complicated film with deep philosophical themes too!

          • You are so smart!
            The Leopard is not only italian, but very sicilian thing, and years ago, when I came here, and still cared I tried to first read the book, and then watch the movie, but it was so boring and the language so anachronic that I gave up.

            And The Deluge – my father watches it EVERYTIME it’s on tv (more or less two times a year) and forced us to watch it too, and I hated it with all my heart. Only now I start appreciate polish classics.


          • I tried to watch The Leopard once, mostly because I was fascinated at the idea of Burt Lancaster starring in an Italian film without being able to speak the language. I got about an hour in and then gave up.

            I’ve never even tried the Deluge because the description alone was enough to make me exhausted.

          • I would recommend The Deluge, only to people who are interested in history and want to know how life in 17 century in Europe was (mostly how the wars were)


  2. I think the lacklustre performance is based on everything you said plus them having waited wayyy too long to get the movie to China plus the latest Avengers film being the hot ticket atm


    • Yeah, wouldn’t be surprised if China had already gotten plenty of bootleg Bahubali before now. At least among the small group of “tastemakers” who would be the ones to obsess over movies and encourage their friends to go watch it.
