Not many people know the true aspect ratio of the movie Baahubali so I created this thread to get this to everyone's attention in order to get the Blu-ray released with full screen 1.78:1 aspect ratio. We never got to see the true aspect ratio in theaters, so they must release the Blu-ray with full screen 1.78:1 aspect ratio

Screenshots Comparision: (CGI vs. Real Movie)
The real movie screenshots obtained were from the trailer and all had black bars and you can clearly see how much is missed in the first screenshot comparison link below. All that CGI hard work from the VFX team, including the money spent will be wasted if the audience never get a chance to see it fully in full screen aspect ratio.

http://screenshotcomparison.com/comparison/141533

I also shared this on twitter, so hopefully someone from the Baahubali team notices it https://twitter.com/ArtofVFX/status/638264612845191168

It's not just the trailer, even the movie when played in theaters is widescreen (2.35:1) aspect ratio. If they release the Blu-ray with 1.78:1 aspect ratio, this could be the first Telugu Blu-ray that is truly full screen covering the whole screen corner to corner and with no black bars.

The entire movie is shot with Arri Alexa XT and an aspect ratio of 1.78.1, but for any reason if it's not possible to have the entire 100% movie with the aspect ratio 1.78:1, then they should just make the Blu-ray that alters its ratio from 2.35:1 to 1.78:1 where available. Hollywood IMAX edition Blu-rays change their aspect ratio like this. Most Hollywood popular movies are releasing with 1.78:1 ratio anyway.

Also when Baahubali 2 is released where ever the theater supports it, Rajamouli should consider releasing the movie in the larger aspect ratio so we can see more of every scene. In USA most theaters support the larger screens. They will need to have the larger ratio for screens that support it and the normal widescreen ratio for the other screens. This is how Hollywood sends digitally or reels, they have different aspect ratios playing based on the theater.

The entire movie is shot with Arri Alexa XT and an aspect ratio of 1.78.1, supported by larger format premium theaters, with a Dolby Atmos soundtrack. However many premium screens did not get the format that was intended as it was probably difficult to coordinate different aspect ratio for different theaters. Most theaters played it at 2.35:1 aspect ratio, which means you missed a significant portion of the movie as the video is cropped at the top and bottom.

1.78:1 is the same as 16:9. This means that Baahubali Blu-ray should use the original source at 1.78:1 which will cover the whole screen corner to corner with no black bars anywhere.

First full screen Telugu Blu-ray. Can't wait

I am trying my best getting them to listen to me through twitter although on one responded yet.

The more people request for it the better chances there are for it to be released with 1.78:1 aspect ratio. Send them messages on facebook and twitter.

I am willing to pay $10 extra if required for the 1.78:1 aspect ratio blu-ray. If they make a mistake and use the 2.35:1 aspect ratio which means black bars at top and bottom I will be very disappointed. It would be a complete waste by not taking full potential of the source. I can only imagine how Baahubali will look on my 110" screen at magnificent ratio of 1.78:1

It is still a suspense of who will get the Telugu Blu-ray rights. Its confusing because there are so many languages and various distributors. The good thing is that at least all the overseas rights for all languages is bought by Blue Sky Cinemas. I don't know this company much. Did they buy the entire overseas rights for any other movie in the past for which a Blu-ray has released. If yes, which home video company released it.

Baahubali deserves more than a regular Blu-ray. Hope it gets a special edition Steelbook.

Is the entire movie source in 16:9 or just the special effects parts?

The Tamil version is shot separately. I don't know how different it is from the Telugu version so it might be tricky to have all three languages in the same Blu-ray.

MAA TV has brought the tv rights for a bomb it seems & until its telecast we need to wait for BD,if at all they decide to release?
going by the lack of any new telugu BD's,certainly things look bleak,if MAA insists that there should be no home video release,to recover their investment?

I think there are many factors that will allow this film to release on bluray (Telugu) in India and overseas

1) MAA TV has a record for releasing many of their films on bluray and DVD in India and overseas
2) All of rajamouli's films have had a bluray release starting from magadheera
3) finally this is Baahubali, the biggest film in India so far. There is no doubt that rajamouli will try to make as much money as he can by selling the bluray as many people will want the Telugu version

It is guaranteed that when Baahubali Blu-ray releases it will become the largest selling Telugu Blu-ray ever. All languages combined it could exceed some popular Hindi movie Blu-rays.
Ofcourse that all depends on how attractive they make the Blu-ray with features such as
  • 1.78:9 aspect ratio which will cover the full 16:9 screen with NO black bars
  • Special features such as making of the movie, art, sets, director's commentary
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Special effects/Techical aspects video
  • DTS HD Master Audio and the other usual high end BD specs expected from a top blu-ray
  • Brief video on box office success
  • Trailer and some scenes from Baahubali 2
  • Steelbook wont happen, but it's a good way to make extra money

Our Telugu producers don't care about their movie after first few weeks of run. So, forget the extras (trailers, deleted scenes, etc). Even if the company wants to do all that they will be under constant pressure to get the BD fast to market before pirated copies of the movie hit the market. So, they will rush to make BD and get it out. I am saying this having been in DVD business as one of the partners in iDeamDVD. We thought of adding extras on couple of our DVDs but we always had to rush to get the DVD to stores before pirated copies get to them.

Even if the Blu-ray is made almost perfect like with all the features we are dreaming, the sales of Telugu Blu-ray will still be pathetic. Even close friends of mine wanted to borrow our DVDs from me to watch for free instead of renting from stores. Couple of them even openly borrowed to copy them :-(.

With DVDs, we were able to sell to Indian stores across US to recoup some of the costs and any sales to customers online was seen as bonus sale. I think the highest number of DVDs we sold on our site then was EVPs Okkadu. Probably around 500 over 2-years time. We were almost the only site selling online then. The only DVD that made profit for us was Satyam and Missamma (new).

With Blu-rays, I doubt there are any sales to Indian stores as rentals. I doubt if sites like Bhavani are able to sell more than couple of 100s BDs on super hit movies. The sales might actually be worse now with high speed internet which enables many to download or stream from illegal sites.

The only hope for Baahubali is IF Rajamouli takes it as passion and work with the makers of BD - which is unlikely to happen, as he will be lost for the next year in making 'The Conclusion'.

If we need all these in high quality then they have to use 2 BDs. They can make another collector's edition for this (say limited to 2K) which will be 2 BD Pack (includes interviews, making VFX, sets, commentaries etc), Autographed Postcards of main characters or 30+pages booklet. (Am I asking more )

Indian politicians must be praying their voters have as much faith and optimism as the blu-ray fans from the Indian studios
