Epic is an underrated word, used to describe trivial achievements in today's day and age. In Hollywood, Epic is BEN HUR. In Indian cinema, epic can now officially be called BAHUBALI.
In its sheer production cost (billed US$ 40 million), this is epic.
In its humungous set design and art work, this is epic
In its direction and execution of action sequences, this is epic.
In its recreating a bygone era of horses and chariots and swords and shields and hand fights, this is epic.
In its special effects, this is epic.
BAHUBALI is epic in proportion to BEN HUR!
And if BAHUBALI does not go to the Oscars as India's entry, then it will be an epic joke!
