After the much await, BAAHUBALI 2 first trailer was unveiled yesterday. While it has been two years since the first part released, but it seems we caught up with the movie just recently. In fact it is hard to believe that the second part is arriving after two years gap. Well such is the impact and hangover of S S Rajamouli's magnum opus creation. While on one we are super delighted to check the new trailer, on other hand we still can't get enough of his first part. Apart from the scale that he presents his craft on screen, the characterization of Rajamouli's flicks also leave an indelible mark.

Rajamouli in several of his interviews time and again has said he has always been inspired by the epics like Mahabharata and Ramayana and that's the reason one can see the traces of them be it in scenes or characters in his film (BAAHUBALI). In fact, Rajamouli have been wanting to make a triology on Mahabharata for quite some time, as per media reports. While that will still take some time to happen, those who want to experience the Rajamouli's representation of epics, then BAAHUBALI is a classic example.

We will delve into BAAHUBALI 2 in yet another story, meanwhile here we recollect few grand moments, scenes and characters from the first part that are still fresh in our memories and stimulate us as and when we watch them on-screen with sheer enchantment because of its reference from the Indian epics.


The character of ‘Kattappa'
in BAAHUBALI exactly resembles ‘Bhishmapitama' of Mahabharata. One sees the spirit of Bhishma, who was known or his loyalty, being an elderly statesman, man of his words, throughout the film. Much like Bhishma, Kattappa dedicates himself for Mahishmati kingdom and is extremely loyal to it.

Besides, there is also one emotional scene where little Baahubali not only sits for lunch along with lower caste Kattappa but he also eats from his uncle's (fondly calls Kattappa) plate. Didn't it ring a bell about Rama eating Sabri's soiled berries?
