Size was everything in part one. Why should the sequel be any different?
Apart from finding out about why Katappa killed the man he had led to protect, S S Rajamouli’s Baahubali 2 promises to expand on themes and characters that featured in the first movie. The 2015 production, which was a massive hit, is about a power struggle that divides the clan that rules the fictional Mahishmati kingdom from within. That movie ended with the image of Baahubali’s loyal general plunging his sword into his master’s back.
In the sequel, which opens on April 28, we find out more about Amarendra Baahubali’s romance with Anushka Shetty’s character, his continuing rivalry with his cousin, played by Rana Dagubatti, and Katappa’s betrayal. The movie will be released in Telugu, Malayalam, Hindi and Tamil.
