Why did Kattappa kill Baahubali?
This million-dollar question has been an enigma for almost two years, and somewhere, this catchphrase has held the spirit of the epic drama, Baahubali, for the longest time. But today, as I left the movie hall, completely engrossed in the world of Baahubali. I realized that this magnum opus is not about Kattappa, Baahubali or the Mahishmati Kingdom.
In the truest sense, this movie is an extraordinary product of S.S Rajamouli’s imagination.
S.S Rajamouli has concluded this historical drama in the most righteous and beautiful way possible. ‘Baahubali 2: The Conclusion’ is unimaginably bigger and better than the previous installment.
All the characters in the sequel have become more aggressive, deep and vulnerable.
The first part was just a mere introduction of all the epic characters, be it Baahubali, Bhallala Deva, Kattappa or Sivagami. The second part goes deep into the nuances, and makes the movie not only visually breathtaking, but also emotionally touching. The conclusion reveals the backstory of the Baahubali family that had kept us hooked, and equally baffled, in the first part.
We don’t believe in spoiler alerts, hence, just to elevate your curiosity, we will tell you that the concluding part begins with a very different note. It untangles the life of Amarendra Baahubali, and how his family double-crossed him, while he firmly stood by his principles.
To say the least, Baahubali is an exceptional tale of what lies between power and principles.
Music is one of the most profound parts of the movie.
Every visually-stunning moment is gripped with the soulful music in the background. It creates an absolutely divine experience for the audiences. The movie hall seems like a different planet, altogether. Also, the cinematography is spectacular. And to imagine such quintessential scenes, all credit to S.S Rajamouli and his teams for their tireless efforts.
In ‘Baahubali 2’, the performances of Kattappa (Sathyaraj) and Sivagami (Ramya Krishna), somewhere, outshined Baahubali (Prabhas).
Sathyaraj played a heartwarming role as a faithful guard, an honest friend, and a ferocious warrior. All of them were impeccable. And Ramya Krishna, as a vulnerable and dutiful mother, made a huge impact, too. On the other side, Prabhas, in every way, will charm you with his grand poise.
So, folks, to cut a long story short, If you’re a cinephile like me, watch ‘Baahubali 2’ for its visual appeal or if you’re a cliffhanger hater like me, watch it for why Kattappa killed Baahubali. In every sense, it’s a must watch.
