Now the film has made it big on another popular global ratings platform. This time it happens to be the only Indian film mentioned alongside international movies. According to the list on Rotten Tomatoes, Baahubali comes second on the ‘Best Movies Off the Radar 2017’ list. Rotten Tomatoes noted, “Baahubali 2: The Conclusion plays like a shotgun wedding between Ben Hur and Kung Fu Hustle, seasoned with bits of Shakespeare, Kurosawa, and Buster Keaton. In other words, it’s a blockbuster that’s both gigantic and lighter than air.”
The film also scored a full 100 per cent on the Tomatometer – that’s a measure of the reviews coming in for the film - it also secured a 87 per cent Audience Score, which is an analysis of the number of people who rated it more than 3.5.
