Films like Bahubali show why we love Indian cinema. It isn’t just a film, mind you! It is an experience which demands to be felt. The first part of the sequel was released in 2015 which left the audience wondering #WKKP i.e. Why Kattapa killed Bahubali? The most burning question of all the time after the cause of Global warming, ofc! *pun intended*
Well, jokes apart! Here’s the thing. Now that we already know, we needn’t scratch our brains anymore. But, this ingenious Quora user Sushant Dalal solved the puzzle back in 2015.
Still, don’t believe me? Read it for yourself!
My guess would be:1. Amarendra Bahubali and Bhalladeva both fall in love with the same girl; Devsena. But Devsena chooses Amarendra Bahubali as she falls for his kind nature; loosing both the kingdom and girl made Bhalladeva frustrated and hence, “Bhalladeva” with the support of his father, plots conspiracy against Amarendra Bahubali, and manages to convince the queen Sivagami and she orders Katappa to kill “Amarendra Bahubali”. Even though Katappa likes him, he has to follow his queen’s order, and so, he kills Amarendra Bahubali. He regrets this all his life and waiting for a chance to correct his mistake.
2. After queen orders Katappa to kill “Amarendra Bahubali”, she realises the true intention of Bhalladeva; only to be late enough that “Amarendra Bahubali” is killed and Bhalladeva trying to overtake the throne and kill the child too.
This is the story I can guess, one that matches the hints provided.
How cool is that? Guess we have found a story-teller for the next sequel of Bahubali.
