New Delhi: Baahubali 2is roaring at the box office. No surprises here. Baahubali 2 has showered another crore at the box office on it's second day, reported Box Office India. The film, in total, has earned over Rs 220 crores, as per Box Office India, which is more than what Aamir Khan's Dangal made in over a week. Earlier, opening across as many as 8,000 screens worldwide, Baahubali: The Conclusion already surpassed the record-breaking box office figures of the blockbuster Dangal, in terms of opening day collections, reported trade analyst Taran Adarsh. Dangal created history, scoring over Rs 100 crore in three days and Baahubali: The Conclusion redefined history, with a record-smashing, beyond-impressive box office collection of Rs 121 crore on its opening day, tweeted Mr Adarsh. Baahubali: The Conclusion released in Hindi, Telugu, Tamil and Malayalam on April 28 with the Hindi version raking in more than Rs 80 crore, which is a shade under what wrestling drama Dangal made in three days - Rs 100 crores. Dangal currently stands at over Rs 375 crore.

Mr Adarsh could not resist describing the box office performance of Baahubali 2 as "stupendous" and "stunning." He also informed that while Dangal continues to be the highest grossing Indian film in the US, Baahubali 2 is not a far way behind from exceeding Dangal's lifetime collections.

Here's a detailed look at Taran Adarsh's analysis:

Here's how Baahubali 2 performed at the international box office:

Of the overwhelming response to Baahubali 2, producer Shobhu Yarlagadda told NDTV: "It has succeeded beyond anyone's imagination. It is not about north or south. Appeal is pan India, from five-year-old to 75, every age group, men and women, urban to rural centres. It does not matter if it is Tollywood, Bollywood or Kollywood, when the appeal cuts across. Universal appeal is the key."

This is how director S S Rajamouli reacted on Twitter:

Meanwhile, Box Office India reported that Tamil Nadu turned out to be the "weakest" contributor in Baahubali 2's ticket sales while Andhra Pradesh ensured maximum business. Baahubali: The Conclusion was conditionally released in Tamil Nadu on Friday afternoon after cancellation of morning shows following payment disputes between distributors and theatres.

Of Baahubali 2, Raja Sen writes in his review for NDTV Movies, "This is the rare sequel that is better than the first. Rajamouli's original Baahubali was engaging and effective but significantly overstuffed, with waterfalls and a weird romantic track and far too many songs for the genre, while this film is a lot more assured about both narrative and tone. The story proceeds briskly and intriguingly, and Rajamouli has a gift for swerving away from what appears obvious."

On Friday, Baahubali 2 opened to a Rajinikanth-style welcome with fireworks and fans pouring milk on larger-than-life sized posters of Prabhas, who plays the protagonist in both parts of S S Rajamouli's ambitious epic-drama series. A section of Baahubali fans opted for a day off from work to avoid spoilers and watched the film on Day 1 - subsequently, Baahubali: The Conclusion recorded 100% opening, reported Box Office India.

Baahubali 2 reunites the original cast with Rana Daggubati as Bhallala Deva, Anushka Shetty and Devasena, Ramya Krishnan as Sivagami, Tamaannah Bhatia as Avantika and Sathyaraj as Katappa returning on the big screen. Prabhas represents the two generations of Baahubali - as father Amarendra and son Mahendra. in the sequel. Baahubali: The Conclusion also finally revealed the secret behind the cliff-hanging moment of the first part, when senapati Katappa killed Baahubali.
