Baahubali: The Conclusion was a spectacle, and the question that has been plaguing the audience the last two years – Why Kattappa Killed Baahubali, has been answered. Across the world, people have watched the film, and are discussing the movie to bits, resulting in spoilers everywhere. But what can you expect? It was a question that many wanted answered. So here we are, telling you why Kattappa killed Baahubali.

Indianexpress.com posted this question a couple of days back to the fans, and the following are some of the theories that we got. Well, guess what? One of them has got it right. In fact, the individual has got the details down to perfection, almost he/she watched it before penning this down. Can you guess which one?

People on social media are not so reticent. A message which is going viral has this to say about the reason behind why Kattappa killed Baahubali, “Baahubali seen… leaked from Dubai premier… kattappa stabbed Baahubali to protect him from curse of goddess Maheshwari to turn into a stone statue in the battlefield… and he was alive… it’s a suspense… good watch…” Indianexpress.com cannot independently confirm the veracity of this message.

Meanwhile, there are many fan theories which may have come very close to the truth. In fact, even SS Rajamouli accepted as much recently.

Here are some of the fan theories floating around…

Kattappa killed Baahubali because Bhallaladeva asked him to
Baahubali stood against his kingdom to marry Devasena, so he left Mahishmati and seeing this as a threat, the newly appointed King Bhallaladeva wanted him dead. Kattappa killed Baahubali because it was his duty to secure the king of Mahishmati and he ia a slave of the throne as he said in Baahubali 1.

Was Devasena the reason?

The real reason is Bhallala’s wife.She turned Mahishmati and Sivagami against Baahubali and Devasena who left the kingdom. Once Bhallala becomes king, he orders Kattappa, a loyal servant of throne, to kill Baahubali.

 

Did Sivagami play a role in Baahubali’s death?

Kattappa (played by Sathyaraj) is loyal army chief of Mahishmati kingdom. Kattappa’s ancestors have sworn to obey the orders of the Mahishmati king. Not just Kattappa, but everyone born in this kingdom be it his ancestors or the generations that would follow are meant to serve the Mahishmati royals. Once Baahubali becomes the emperor of the kingdom, he falls in love with certain Devasena (played by Anushka Shetty). The twist in the tale is that Bhallaladeva (played by Rana Daggubati) is also in love with Devasena. According to the instructions of Rajmata Shivagami (played by Ramya Krishnan), whoever marries Devasena will have to leave the empire and will be exiled. Baahubali agrees to this condition and decides to marry Devasena and leave Mahishmati kingdom.So Bhallaladeva becomes the king and orders Kattappa to kill Bahubali!

What role does ‘Antaryudh’ play

Sivagami confesses her sins in the first part. Was the sin Baahubali’s killing? In Baahubali 2’s trailer, a shocked Sivagami says ‘Antaryudh’ or civil war. Did she get get Baahubali killed to avoid this ‘Antaryudh’ and later realised that she was wrong?

Baahubali died so that Shiva can live

Kattappa killed Bahubali because Bhalladeva gave Kattapa two choices — either save Shiva and Devasena or save Baahubali. So kattapa decided to save Baahubali’s son as the future of Mahishmati.

Baahubali is still alive

Baahubali is still alive and will be revealed in Baahubali 2. Many believe that Baahubali was kidnapped by Bhallaladeva or is in hiding somewhere and will reveal himself at an opportune time.

Did Baahubali ask Kattappa to kill him?

“Amrendra Baahubali yaani mai Mahishmati Ke Asankhya Prajaa Aur Unke Dhan Maan Aur Praan Ki Raksha Karunga Aur Iske liye Apne Praano Ki Aahuti Bhi Deni Pade Toh Mai Piche Nahi Hatunga,” is Baahubali’s oath. Did he ask Kattappa to kill him for Mahishmati’s sake or to avoid an internal war?

But as proof of plain common sense, this theory takes our breath away…

If Kattappa hadn’t killed Baahubali, how would have Rajamouli made Baahubali 2?

Professional horse riding vs King

“Katappa wanted Bahubali to be the King . But much like the youngsters back in the older days, Bahubali wanted to break the trend and become a professional horse rider (equivalent to cricket in current times) . As Bahubali’s focus shifted to Horse riding, his academic pursuits to become king started falling. One day Kattappa saw him admiring horse pictures inside the dry leaf books that had theory on Kingship. Katappa lost his cool and kicked Bahubali out of the palace . Bahubali then mobilised princes of other kingdoms who wanted to break traditional forms of livelihood I.e be the king and pursue their dreams such as horse riding, tree jumping , archery etc .
This revolution went to an extent that katappas position was in danger . Like any appa , kattappa also went to convince Bahubali for one final time to give up. But it lead to fist fight that got violent leading to katappa stabbing poor Bahu !

The END”

Engineering vs medicine

“Actually hamara pyara kattappa karna chahta tha medical lekin bahubali ne karwaya engineering. 4 saal tak apna ghiswata raha hamara nanha kattappa😂😂.phir kya placement ke din bahubali ko bulaya aur usko hi permanent placement de diya”

    Many people say that katappa killed baahubali because bhallaldeva asked him to kill baahubali But when baahubali was king of mahismati how katappa can kill baahubali and katappa's duty is to protect the throne of mahismati and bhallaldeva was not the king of mahismati so how katappa can kill baahubali?????

                In 2012, the Indian government stated 22 of its po tion is below its official poverty limit. The World Bank, in 2011 based on 2005's PPPs International Comparison Program, estimated 23.6 of Indian po tion, or about 276 million people, lived below $1.25 per day on purchasing power parity. (courtesy wikipedia). When something like this exists, why make such movies ? Next in the line is MohanLal's 1000 crore budget movie. If hi was not shot to death, he would shoot himself. If Bhagat Singh knew that this was going to happen, he would have married and raised a wonderful family, rather than getting executed at the age of 23. But yes, cinema industry employs a lot of young people (so called demographic dividend). Hence, (in)directly benefiting the country (given that people are paid good) and not just Prabhas or Mohanlal. FYI nothing against Prabhas or Lalettan ( I love their movies)

                            Bahubali is a terefic and super movie thanks to rajamouli sir really he was a sir he is a sir and will be a sir. He makes us proud in front of world cinema. Bahubali is s cult movie. People like Mr.vijay spend money for foreign movie like fast and furious BT when a Indian director do really brave like this he did nt phrase and call him mindless. My sir everything is mindless in today's world bt when a mindless person like rajamouli sir takes this brave attempt we should salute him. He makes us proud infront of world cinema we are nt underrated nw. Saree kahan se acha Hindustan hamara hamara jai hind
