In a convincing narration, a video in Telugu released online has been making rounds revealing the entire story of Bahubali-2 or Bahubali – The Conclusion, which is a sequel to all-India hit Bahubali last year.
The video that has some pictures showcasing the actors and begins with several questions left open in Bahubali – The Beginning“.
– Why did Kattappa back-stab his beloved master Bahubali?
– How did Bhallala become King?
– Why did Bhallala imprison Devasena instead of killing her?
– What is the rivalry between Bhallala and Devasena’s brother?
– Why did Shivagamini rescue Bahubali’s new-born son?
OK, here are the answers provided by this narrative video based on some pictures from the film in making:
Bhallala, who was made army chief of Mahishmati Empire happens to like Devasena, princess of Uttara Empire in a ‘Swayamvaram’. But his wish to marry her was overshadowed by Amarendra Bahubali’s stature, whom Devasena likes and falls in love. This infuriates Bhallala who forces his father to step in and ask Bahubali to enter a duel with Bhallala or sacrifice the throne. Here, the link is rather vague as of now whether Devasena is from a rival kingdom and hence the rider. Bahubali refuses to enter a duel with his brother and instead sacrifices the throne. He takes his pregnant wife and goes into the wild.
Bhallala becomes king of Mahishmati empire finally but his cruelty makes him unpopular and attracts invasion from the erstwhile Kalakeya’s brother, who was seeking revenge for his brother’s defeat and death. He invades this time with 2 lakh army and Mahismati Empire faces an imminent defeat. It was Mahishmati empire’s fate that forces Bahubali to return and save the kingdom, though his wife was eight-month-old pregnant.
Here Bhallala plays the loyalty card and forces Kattappa to kill Bahubali who was already on the winning streak in the war as many soldiers turn loyal to him and look upon him for inspiration.
The war was won but Bahubali was killed and soon Bhallala turns his attention to Devasena, who had rejected him. He offers her to be his queen, which she rejects. Then he plots for eliminating even her newly-born son and the news falls in the ears of Shivagamini. She decides to sacrifice her life and save the baby. So, she takes the newly-born and escapes through an underground tunnel and exits at the riverside. Here, the viewers can recollect the opening scene of “Bahubali- The Beginning” where Shivagamini kills a couple of soldiers and jumps into water keeping the child floating above the water.
Now the real story of Shivudu forms part of the second-half of the film. He seeks to take revenge and was supported by Kattappa, his arms dealer friend Aslaam Khan (Sudeep) too joins the war against Bhallala. With help from Devasena’s brother and erstwhile loyal soldiers of Bahubali, Shivudu wages war and wins over Bhallala and brings cheer to his mother by burning Bhallala at the spot where his mother had made the stage ready with her relentless collection of spades for over decades.
There ends the film.
