Thalaiva Rajinikanth’s 2002 film will hit the theatres once again, as per reports

Recently, the South Film Industry has witnessed a sea of re-releases. Numerous iconic films of South star actors have found their way back to the theatres either to commemorate a milestone or the respective star’s birthday. Interestingly, all such re-releases have met with immense response from movie-goers and netizens believe that audiences’ nostalgia connection might be the reason. In the latest, reports have surfaced that Superstar Rajinikanth’s Baba will now join the trend as the makers of the movie have planned to release the film in a 4k print.

A source close to the development revealed the information to the Indian Express. “Every frame has been digitally enhanced with state-of-the-art colour grading,” revealed the source. ‘Baba’ co-starred Manisha Koirala with essential roles played by Ramya KrishnaNassar, and Prabhu Deva, among others. Rajinikanth wrote the script and screenplay of ‘Baba’ and produced it himself. The movie was an ode to Mahavatar Babaji - the 'deathless' spiritual guru, who's credited with reviving the meditation form of Kriya Yoga. 

Back in the day, the 2002 film Baba had tanked at the box office. The initial days in theatres witnessed packed shows, but soon, the audiences stopped turning up since it lacked the ‘Rajini’ charm that’s usually infused in Thalaiva’s movies. Though the movie failed to perform commercially, Rajinikanth voiced that ‘Baba’ and Sree Raaghavendar (1985) are the only two films that brought satisfaction to his soul in his filmography of over 160 films. 

Akin to ‘Baba’, ‘Sree Raaghavendar’ failed at the box office as well. Interestingly, Rajinikanth’s future projects post-both films turned out to be career-shaping box-office blockbusters. The Super Star had recently revealed that he was adamant to make both films since they were part of his quest to learn about the spiritual realm.
