Baahubali to release in Dolby Atmos

22 Dec
After having fortified its presence in the Bollywood
industry, Dolby Laboratories is also taking its sound
expertise to the vast South Indian movie industry. The
latest in it is the release of Baahubali, a Telugu movie
that will be released in Dolby Atmos, providing sound
quality that will enable audiences to feel as if they are in
the movie.
Baahubali is produced by Shobu Yarlagadda and Prasad
Devineni of Arka Mediaworks and is directed by SS
Rajamouli, an award-winning screenplay writer and
director who is best known for the films Magadheera and
Baahubali is his next high-budget featuring Prabhas,
Rana Daggubati, Anushka Shetty and Tamannaah in the
lead roles. Apart from them, the film features an
ensemble cast of Ramya Krishnan, Sathyaraj, Nassar,
Adivi Sesh, Tanikella Bharani and Sudeep in crucial
The film’s soundtrack has been designed by PM
Satheesh in Dolby Atmos format, with music composed
by MM Keeravani. The film has been mixed by Debajit
Changmai at FutureWorks.
On the usage of Dolby, Satheesh said, “Using Dolby
Atmos for Baahubali has been a captivating experience. I
believe that Dolby Atmos is the most powerful sound
technology we have ever used, giving us the freedom to
place and move sounds anywhere around and above the
audiences. The massive scale on which the film is shot
with the enormous amount of VFX combined with the
sound design and mix in Dolby Atmos will make
audiences feel as if they are in the middle of the
onscreen action. Audiences will be able to distinguish
each and every clink of a soldier’s weapon among
thousands. In the war scenes, one can actually feel as if
they are flying with the fireballs thrown into the air by
the medieval war machines and landing on the enemy’s
battlefield thanks to the Dolby Atmos soundtrack.”
“We are very excited with the response Dolby Atmos has
received in India, including from directors and sound
engineers. We believe that Baahubali will be an
extraordinary experience with Dolby Atmos. With Atmos,
the audiences are no longer watching a movie but
experiencing it,” said Dolby Laboratories senior regional
director India, SEA and ANZ Pankaj Kedia.
