With the change in the time we can truly see the change in film industry also. Now, the producers don’t hesitate in spending money on enormous sets, what they truly want is to give audience that true flavour of the time and the feel they want to deliver. We have some great films in our kitty that had sets which truly were magical and grand, have a look at those movies.
Baahubali’s set left everyone mesmerised across the globe as it was one of the most magical and capturing set till date. Visitors kept visiting the set with an entry ticket of Rs. 1250. Well really was impressed with the grand Ramoji’s film set.
The film according to Bhansali was supposed to be shot at Chittor fort, but due to protest and vandalism, Sanjay Leela Bhansali had to recreate the fort in Mumbai and the cost of making the sets went really high. But the movie kept up to its standards.
Another Bhansali’s movie that had to be on the list is Ramleela, with his apt sets we can very clearly see the Gujarat’s feel in the movie. He stunned us and gave the true flavour with grand Havelis, Colourful Lanes and larger than life dancing numbers.
Ashutosh Gowarikar did spared any loops in the movies as its sets were truly larger than life and looked so real that we can’t take our eyes of. He actually recreated the sets at Karjat in the movie.
This movie was a true Sanjay Leels Bhansali’s film and didn’t disappoint us at all. The song shot in Aiina Mahal was a pure treat to watch as to create the effect there were 20,000 mirros and 13 grand chandeliers.
Though the movie couldn’t do wonders on the Box Office but its sets were stunning, the sets were recreated in Sri Lanka. In fact, the 50s Mumbai was recreated there to cut the budget. It still costed a whopping 16 crore!
Thugs Of Hindostan
It was probably the most expensive film of bollywood as they spent their money both on VFX and sets. The 2 ships in the movie cost them a whopping amount and weighed over 2 lakh kilos.
Most iconic movie till date as it had everything great including the song “Jab Pyaar kia To Darna kya” as it was shot in the replica of sheesh mahal which costed around 15 lakh rupees and that was huge acc. to that time.
Though Saawariya failed to impress us as a movie but its set truly won our hearts and Sanjay Leela Bhansali kept his image with these larger than life sets in the movie.
Prem Ratan Dhan Payo
There are some scenes in the movie that are shown to be of Sheesh Mahal which are mesmerising and the cost of the set of that Seesh Mahal is 13-15 crores.
Recent release of Salman Khan’s Bharat is also on the list as it has a setup of around 15 crore in the movie.
Only the set’s cost was around 20 crore, the amount spent on Chandrmukhi’s Kotha was 12 Crores.
The movie tried to show the 40s era and some grand setup was done for that, which was truly visible it cost Dharma productions something around 15crores.
