What was special about Bahubali

Bahubali - The Beginning

Film plot and background

Monumental adventure film from India: a simple orphan boy discovers his superhuman abilities and influences the fate of the kingdom.

The story takes place in the 13th century: the young Sivudu (Prabhas) grew up in a secluded valley surrounded by huge rocks and waterfalls. It turns out early on that he has a very special gift, because he is blessed with superhuman strength. The older Sivudu gets, the more he feels the urge to see the world. However, his foster mother Sanga (Rohini) wants to keep the boy with her at all costs. Nevertheless, Sivudu tries unsuccessfully to climb the steep rock walls. One day the time will come. He discovers a mask that was washed down the waterfall. Sivudu's burning curiosity finally makes him climb the rocks. Once there, he falls in love with the beautiful rebel leader Avantika (Tamannaah Bhatia), who owns the mask. He joins the rebels and learns of a daring mission: a bitter war for power has been raging in the Indian kingdom of Mahishmati for years. The unscrupulous ruler Bhallala Deva (Bhallala Deva) forcibly tore his own brother Amarendra Baahubali from the throne and sent the queen Devasena (Anushka Shetty) into exile. Now Sivudu is supposed to find the rightful queen. This task is not that easy, because the murderous bodyguard of the tyrant is after the rebels. Sivudu soon senses that it was not by chance that he got into the conflict. He discovers his real fate that will affect the entire Indian empire. The monumental adventure epic is the most expensive Indian film of all time. The main roles were cast with a prominent Bollywood cast. The second and last part “Baahubali: The Conclusion” is due to hit Indian cinemas in 2016.
