The trailer for one of 2017's most anticipated films, Baahubali 2 - The Conclusion is out. Expected to release in April this year, the SS Rajamouli extravaganza looks every bit as exciting as fans would have hoped for.
Beginning with Prabhas, who plays Amarendra Baahubali, making a promise in the name of Queen Sivagami (Ramya Krishnan) that he would not hesitate to lay down his life for the people of Mahishmati, the trailer proceeds to show that iconic scene that left everyone at the edge of their seats in the first film - Kattappa (Satyaraj) killing Baahubali.
Why, why, why did this happen? We will finally know! The brief dialogue exchange between Kattappa and Prabhas's character, however, hints that this killing might have happened for good reason - perhaps something along the lines of what happened between Dumbledore and Snape in Harry Potter?
The trailer cuts back to scenes from the first film, which released in 2015, to remind the audience of the story so far. The visual with Queen Sivagami, raising the baby Mahendra Baahubali (or Shiva) with one hand, and declaring who he is, still induces goosebumps.
We also get to see the beautiful Devasena (Anushka Shetty) in her royal robes. In the first film, she's imprisoned and dressed in rags though still as majestic as ever. The trailer promises a big role for Devasena and Anushka Shetty who has a flair for playing such parts is likely to own the role.
A beefed up Rana Daggubatti as Bhallala Deva looks like the worthy villain the film deserves.
The war scenes and graphics look spectacular, with MM Keeravani's music adding to the intrigue.
