Yaaaaaay! The trailer is out! And I missed it last night because I can’t understand time changes! Karan announced when it would be released, but I thought it would be early this morning, not late last night. Oh well. It’s here now!
Well, firstly, the facial hair of Bahubali and Bahubali Jr. has somehow met in the middle and now I can’t easily tell them apart. They both seem to be going to war against Rana, but maybe it’s just one of them and I am confused?
The editing is great in the trailer, I love the way all the war scenes seem to be happening at once with that beat in the background. But that doesn’t tell us much about how the war scenes will be in reality. And still no information on why Kattapa killed him!
Although I think I heard a thing there with the Rani Maa being all horrified at the idea of a civil war? Is it possible that Baahubali decides to sacrifice his life in order to end or prevent a civil war which will tear apart the kingdom?
(Also, just a reminder that Rani Maa totally made Shahrukh her little sexual plaything 20 years ago)
I am also delighted that we get to see tough Anushka and her romance with Prabhas! Love her little slow mo sword fight scene, and her dance, and Prabhas’s “I’m in love at first sight!” look.
But, here’s my question, WHERE’S TAMANAAH?????
She disappeared for the second half of Baahubali 1 and we (meaning me and my friends) all thought “oh, okay, but she’ll come back in 2 for the resolution of her story and maybe to lead the rebel group in battle.” But, NO!
At least, not from this trailer. It’s possible they decided not to show her because they thought the big draw would be solving the mystery of what happened in the past to get Anushka chained up and Baahubali Sr. dead. I hope so! I would hate it if we have a whole movie, and then waaaaaay at the end, just a little glimpse of her character standing on the dias at the coronation or something.
