HYDERABAD: After queues outside cinema halls started as early as 5 am in some places and bulk booking, the mania for the second part of the magnum opus, Baahubali - The Conclusion, shifted to social media.


What started with movie buffs tweeting photographs with tickets of the film’s screening, within hour shifted to people heaping praises on the director SS Rajmoulli. 

One movie buff tweeted, “Take a bow master SS Rajamouli Goosebumps at its peak on each second of the second half. #Prabhas #Sathyaraj #Rana #RemyaKrishnan #Anushkka Hats off to whole the crew behind.

Truly epic, Best of Indian cinema. (Double goosebumps on some scenes, watch in theatre and feel it).” (sic.) Sources reported that a fan livestreamed bits of the film on Facebook and minutes later the link was removed. Also, Twitter was flooded with photos of screening from the theatre, some also leading to suspending of accounts and the Hyderabad City Police intervening.

A Twitter handle with the name, @2point0_Rajini, was leaking scenes from the film when another user brought it to the attention of Hyderabad Police who replied that it would be forwarded to officials concerned and the account was later suspended.
