Superstar Rajinikanth has delivered many super-hit films in his illustrious career spanning close to 40 years now but nothing can match the awe and admiration surrounding the resounding hit he delivered two decades with the gangster-flick Baashha directed by Suresh Krishna.
Baashha has occupied a ‘special place’ in the hearts of millions of Rajini’s fans the world over as well as in movie-goers’ minds. Never in the history of film industry that an antagonist’s character was so loved and supported like Rajini’s character Maanik Baashha was.
Rajini’s characteristic style, dialogue delivery, punch-dialogues timed to perfection, Deva’s astounding background score and mesmerizing hit songs contributed to making the film one of the great hit films in Rajini’s career.
Even now, whenever the film is screened on the telly, theatres report a dip in collection in shows. So much so that merely getting to know that Baashha would be telecast on TV is enough to make Rajini’s fans delirious with joy.
Sathya Movies, the producers of the film, are completing their golden jubilee in film-making and on the eve, they are making efforts to ‘digitize’ Baashha and re-release it in theatres.
“We are excited at the response from netizenst to the release (on 15th Dec.) of digitized trailer of the film which soon became a trend with the ‘#EpicBaasha’ tag.
Digitized version of Baashha would be released in a grand manner in Japan as well; we also plan to release the film next month in countries such as U.S., U.K., Australia and Sweden from where we have got huge offers,” they inform.
