Baahubali movie story review
Near the ancient Mahishmati Kingdom of India, an injured woman is seen emerging from a cave near a mountain waterfall with a baby. He killed two soldiers who were chasing the raging river and tried to cross it, but slipped and were washed away. Before drowning, he held the baby high in his hands and prayed to Lord Shiva, demanding that the baby, Mahendra Baahubali, be kept alive. The baby was rescued by people from the local Amburi tribe who lived near the river and worshiped Lord Shiva. Despite requests from the villagers to take the baby back to the mountain where it came from, the wife of the tribal leader, Sanga, decided to adopt him to protect him from harm. He baptized the baby as Shivadu (Shiva).
Shiva grew up to be an ambitious and mischievous child, obsessed with the goal of climbing mountains, curious to explore the peaks. Despite Sanga’s constant requests, he tries and often fails, though he improves with each attempt. At the age of 25, he showed that he had superhuman strength when he lifted the lingam from Shiva and placed it at the foot of the mountain. He then finds a mask that seems to have fallen from the top of a mountain. When she realizes that this can have a feminine nature, she is motivated to climb the mountain and succeed, albeit with difficulty.
Above, he witnesses a woman named Avantika killing Mahishmati soldiers. He discovers that he is a warrior from a local resistance tribe dedicated to overthrowing the tyrannical King Mahishmati, Lord Bhalaladeva (Bhalvalatevan) and the rescue of an important prisoner – Princess Devasena, who is the sister of resistance leader Jaya Varma. is . Immediately overwhelmed by Avantika, Shivu secretly follows him and even manages to get a tattoo on his arm (while he sleeps). Avantika is then given the task of saving Devasena. He finds out about Shiva and attacks him, but Shiva controls him and returns his mask. When she realizes that he climbed the mountain just for her, she regains her feelings.
The pair are then attacked by more soldiers than Mahishmati. Shiva overcomes them and agrees to save Devasena and leaves. On Bhaladeva’s birthday, he secretly entered Mahishmati and secretly helped erect a giant Bhala statue. He was apparently identified by a worker who shouted the name “Baahubali” along with the other workers, much to Shiva’s confusion and embarrassment. Shivu then enters the royal palace disguised as a soldier and causes an uproar that distracts Bhala and his bodyguards long enough to save Devasena.
Bhala sent Bhadra, his adoptive father, and Katapa, his loyal slave, to bring Devasena back. They succeed, but Shivu manages to defeat them and behead Bhadra when Sanga, Amburis, Avantika and their companions arrive. Enraged, Katapa rushed towards Shiva, but stopped attacking him when he saw his face. He falls at Shiva’s feet and declares him “Baahubali”.
The next morning the now friendly Katapa explained his true origins to Shiva. Shivu is actually Mahendra Baahubali, son of the famous Mahishmati warrior prince Amarendra Baahubali. Katapa then recounts the past – Amarendra was born an orphan; his father, King Vikramadeva, died before he was born, and his mother died when he gave birth to him. Lord Bijaladeva, Vikramadeva’s brother and successor to the Mahishmati royal family, has abdicated due to his cunning and insane nature.
Bijaladeva’s wife, Lady Sivaghami, takes over as reigning king with the intention of appointing Bhala (who happens to be her son) and Amarendra to choose the next heir to the Mahishmati throne. Mrs. Bhalla and Amarendra were raised equally and trained in martial arts, mathematics, administration, logic and many other subjects. Bijaladeva, eager to make his son the next king, encourages Bhala to do everything possible to ascend the throne; As a result, Bhala treated his people cruelly and recklessly. Amarendra, on the other hand, grew up and gained popularity in the kingdom.
A royal traitor named Painan turns out to be a spy from the cruel Kalakeya tribe who is known as a savage and destroyer of the kingdom. Your boss Inkoshi declares war on past conflicts with Mahishmati and the nobles react strategically.
Sivagami decides that whoever kills Inkoshi will become a worthy new king and appoints an army of princes. Bijaladeva secretly ensures that Bhala has more guns and people. Baahubali managed to destroy more troops than Kalakeya by using innovative tactics in the upcoming battles, motivating his soldiers and saving his people as hostages. He conquers Inkoshi and Bhala kills him, but because of his bravery and concern for the people of his kingdom, Sivagami decides to crown him king.
Today Shivu’s parents want to meet Amarendra, impressed by his story. A desperate word revealed that Amarendra was dead. After being questioned by Shiva about his father’s death, Katapa further reveals that Amarendra was not killed by anyone but himself before the screen went black.
