From KGF to Pushpa, and now Ponniyin Selvan: I, several movies are being shown to the audience in instalments.

Movies made in South, such as Baahubali and RRR, have fetched the country worldwide recognition in the field of cinema. They are also among the highest-grossing Indian films. The craze for south films started back in 2015, when SS Rajamouli introduced us to Baahubali: The Beginning. And the rest is history. Fans exuberantly waited for the second part of the film, which was narrated in two parts, and when it arrived in cinemas, it broke many box office records. Since then, filmmakers have frequently started following the trend of releasing their masterpieces in parts, to showcase their stories in detail.

From KGF to Pushpa, and now Ponniyin Selvan: I, several movies are being shown to the audience in instalments. While the second part of KGF released this year, Pushpa 2 and the second chapter of Ponniyin Selvan are currently in progress. PS-I, which released this Friday, boasts brilliant actors Vikram, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Jayam Ravi, Prakash Raj, Trisha Krishnan, Karthi, Sobhita Dhulipala and Aishwarya Lekshmi.

In this Ponniyin Selvan-special week, let’s take a look at some south films that released, or will be released, in two parts:

However, the second part couldn’t match the expectations of the audience and critics and failed to perform well at the box office.

Baahubali

Prabhas and Rana Daggubati’s Baahubali released in two parts. Named Baahubali: The Beginning and Baahubali: The Conclusion, both the films made Rajamouli a renowned director across the world. They were massive blockbusters, and the second part was more successful than the first.

KGF

KGF: Chapter 1 and 2 were both super hits. They put actor Yash on the map. He became a superstar as he nailed his role as Rocky in the movie. Part 1 and 2 were high-octane action films that also promised a whole lot of drama and mind-blowing soundtrack. The second part released this year on April 14.
