After having watched the film, these are Baahubali 2 takeaways. As the epic begins, the focus is back on why Rajmata Sivagami (Ramya Krishnan) chose Baahubali (Prabhas) over Bhalla Deva (Rana Daggubati) as the future king of Mahishmati. Prabhas returns as Baahubali and Shiva and he is the mainstay of the film. Rajamouli has been unequivocal about Prabhas’ commitment to the franchise and when you watch Baahubali 2, you realise that few could have done justice to the character like Prabhas does.
The actor is brilliant as he portrays vulnerability and toughness with amazing ease and lends credibility to the character. He gets able support from Anushka Shetty as Devasena. The film revolves around the two of them and their performances are the film’s highlights.
And now for the question which the audience has been waiting for with bated breath – why Kattappa killed Bahubali? While we are not giving away any spoilers we can assure you that Rajamouli deals with it tactfully. In fact, the film has two major twists and the Kattappa mystery is one of them. Rajamouli, who also wrote the screenplay of the film, should be given due credit for dealing with it ably.
