Concept artist spilled beans about why Kattappa killed Baahubali Poster?

Fans will have to wait for the sequel to know ‘Why Kattappa killed Baahubali?’ but concept artist Viswanath Sundaram has spilled the beans about how he created the now-famous image in the S S Rajamouli-directed blockbuster.

Sundaram, who has designed more than 1,000 concept art pieces for Rajamouli’s film, says working on the project was equivalent to doing ten movies thanks to its epic nature. Talking about that famous shot, Sundaram says, “Rajamouli sir called me to develop designs where ‘Kattappa kills Baahubali’.

“First, I developed a frame but the director felt it was too low an angle to shoot on the screen. The next one too did not convince him since the slayer’s face was obscure. Later, I composed a silhouette with fire and grey backdrop, and my art was ultimately replicated on the screen without any change.”

Kattappa scene may be the signature image from the movie but Sundaram considers the statue-lifting scene of Bhallala Deva (played by Rana Daggubati) in the first installment as the most challenging shot he envisioned as a concept artist.

“In the first part, the statue-lifting sequence was very challenging. That shot was an important one to propel the story forward. I created three sketches with panoramic views and handed the printouts. During the shoot, they had the sketches in front of them to decide where to place the shots.”

Sundaram believes film industry has gradually opened doors to concept art and graphic design aritsts for projects made on a broad canvas. “In our industry, concept design is employed only in particular films and by specific filmmakers. Few directors follow a methodical approach to work on the storyboard first, subsequently on concept design and then finally on developing the visuals.”

While Sundaram’s work in “Baahubali” is mostly focused on designing concept art and developing visuals, he was hired by director Shankar for “character designing” in the Rajinikanth, Akshay Kumar starrer “2.0”. “In ‘2.0’, I have been asked to do character design. VFX supervisor Srinivas Mohan called me during the first part of ‘Baahubali.’ Director Shankar saw the sketches I did for ‘Baahubali’ and appreciated the details and background work.

“Then he explained a sequence and told me to redesign ‘Chitti’ Robo’s character, its hairstyle and also to design the villain,” says Sundaram. In “Baahubali 2”, Sundaram will get credit in the category of ‘concept design and visual development’, and he is elated that even storyboard artists are getting due recognition. “Baahubali: The Conclusion”, starring Prabhas, Rana Daggubati, Anushka Shetty and Tamannaah Bhatia, is scheduled to release on April 28.
