Resul Pookkutty, Oscar-winning sound designer, has taken an indirect dig at the inspirations behind the film Baahubali. Even in the pre-release promotions of the film, SS Rajamouli indicated that references to Hollywood films like Lord Of The Rings and 300 would be inevitable since he had grown up watching and admiring these films.
“#Bahubali is an outstanding attempt to take Indian cinema forward.But I did see shadows of many successful films in it& it’s relentless,” he wrote.
“#Bahubali is a trendsetter. A lot of big ticket films are going2 follow the suite,it allows Indian film makers2 think big& open up market,” added Resul.
