Looks impressive. Will have to rewatch the first one to get back into the story. I remember it ended on a note of shock but I can't remember the details. I totally loved it, and that was seeing it on dvd. Number 2 is definitely going to be a cinema experience.
I have been waiting for this ever since I came out of the theatre watching the first part. It's not really a movie where you have to think too much as it's more of a visual treat but the climax left me thinking for a while after I left the theatre. Now, I have started thinking once again,
^ I have put spoiler on it. However I think the question I asked has been all over the internet and being discussed among public in the last 2 years. In fact the makers have #WKKB mentioned in every poster and trailer of Baahubali 2. They know it's one of the USPs of the film because it's been considered as the biggest question in the last 2 years (as a joke)
Here is a sample after the sequel's trailer came out yesterday, it's the same with every other article on it:

Actually I thought the story was pretty good, especially the turns it took in the 2nd half! This movie would have not worked with 2 parts if the story would be boring! I also liked the historic background attempt of the movie! It was well executed I felt - especially considering that Indian movies are usually not very history based, and of those who tried many failed ...
It's worth watching! Seriously! If not in cinema then at least on DVD! I wouldn't praise a Dharma Production otherwise if it wouldn't be good...
Baahubali 2 – The Conclusion to see the biggest release ever in history, to arrive in 6000-7000 screens
Apr 25, 2017 - 1:02 pm IST
Yes, it’s official. Bahubali 2 – The Conclusion would see the biggest release ever in the history of Indian cinema. The film would be arriving in the upwards of 6000 screens (yes, you read it right) and efforts are still on to bring it closer to the 7000 screens. Never before has a film been released on such huge print count and an arrival like this pretty much places the SS Rajamoli’s war drama on road for a blockbuster start.
“There are close to 5000 screens across the country where Bollywood films run. Add to that 3000 odd further screens in South India where major Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam films are released. This brings the total of 8000 screens. With no other film, either in Hindi or other regional languages arriving alongside Bahubali 2 – The Conclusion on April 28, it would practically be the face-off between Prabhas and Rana Daggubati that would find maximum attention in almost all centres of the country,” informs our well-placed source.
Now this is truly unprecedented as even the biggest of Hindi films end up releasing in the 4500-5000 screens at best (including their dubbed Telugu and Tamil versions). On the other hand films down South have not known to exceed 2500-3000 screens on arrival.
“Here, it is just one single film that is being designed to create havoc across the country,” our source adds, “With a budget that is the biggest ever for an Indian motion picture, it was also quite rudimentary that the placement is the biggest ever as well. The wait for knowing ‘Why did Katappa kill Baahubali?’ has been pretty agonizing already. More and more people would want to know it on the first day itself, lest the news leaks in today’s fast paced electronic world over social media. Better to let anyone and everyone watch it in theatres soon enough instead of making them wait for long.”
With such a huge arrival, it is pretty much a given that across all the languages, Bahubali 2 – The Conclusion is all set to take the biggest opening ever in the history of cinema.
“Even if the film releases on 6500 screens, there is a capacity available to result in first day collections to the tune of around 60 crore. Considering the fact that April 28 is not a holiday, one cannot expect cent percent collections all over. However, it would still be huge, which means it is a given that Bahubali 2 – The Conclusion would have a first day in excess of Rs. 50 crore at the least. Don’t be surprised if numbers turn out to be even bigger since never before has a film seen a pan-India release on such a lavish scale. Expect fireworks on the film’s arrival and further havoc being created over the weekend,” our trade guru adds.
Now this would pretty much turn out to be a Baahubal-ian start for the most anticipated film of 2017 so far.
Below are the GROSS figures for the biggest opening days in India in all languages. Gross figures are used to eliminate the difference tax rates in various areas so its gives a more accurate picture There is not much to say and the figures say it all as Bahubali 2 - The Conclusion has smashed the previous record by 100 crore.
No film had even grossed 100 crore end this epic has smashed the previous record by 100 crore. Figures below are for films in all languages they were released in.

Phenomenal Monday - Bahubali 2 (Hindi) Is ALL TIME BLOCKBUSTER
Monday 01 May 2017 16.30 IST
Box Office India Trade Network
Bahubali 2 - The Conclusion (Hindi) is set to achieve its biggest feat till yet on Monday. There are no words to describe what is happening in the Hindi markets on Monday. It is certain already that it will be the highest Monday off all time with collections surpassing 30 crore nett but the big question is by how far it will surpass that figure. What has gone on so far on Monday suggests it may even challenge its Friday number but surely the evening and night shows can't do what they did on Friday as it is a working day tomorrow. It is a partial holiday for Labour Day today but that should hardly be making the film put up this sort of record Monday.
The film is an ALL TIME BLOCKBUSTER and its probably the first time that a film has got the highest classification in less than four days. The collections in North (Delhi city and Punjab) are so phenomenal on Monday that it is hard to think that other areas like Mumbai and Central will stop this film becoming the highest grossing film in Hindi of all time. If it was going to be let down it was going to be Delhi city and Punjab due to the South factor. Dangal in Hindi grossed 374 crore nett and its looking very much that this total is going to be chased down and maybe even go over 400 crore nett.
Bahubali 2 - The Conclusion (Hindi) has set an opening day record, opening weekend record, is certain to set a week record and almost certain to set a lifetime record. Now the wait is where Monday will land, at little above 30 crore nett or the unthinkable and around 40 crore nett. It will be known in a few hours from now.

Bahubali 2 - The Conclusion has become the HIGHEST GROSSING FILM ever in India in just five days. The film has grossed 441 crore nett apprx in five days but for a film which is playing in various languages it is the gross figures that are used due to different rates of Entertainment Tax in different states and regional films getting reduced rates from state governments. The GROSS figure Bahubali - The Conclusion is 565 crore apprx easily beating Bahubali (2015) which finished with 519 crore apprx and Dangal (2016) which finished with 512 crore apprx. Below are the top grossing films (Gross and Nett) of all time in India
Bahubali 2 - The Conclusion which has smashed all box office records has also taken the Worldwide crown in just six days. The film has gone past the Worldwide record of PK at 743 crore with business close to 800 crore. Dangal was 718 crore Worldwide.
The Hindi version alone still has far to go as it stands at around 375 crore after 6 days and the highest are PK at 743 crore and Dangal at 702 crore. This will be a task as the Overseas business for the Hindi version is going to be limited though a bigger release could have really helped the film. Though the way India is going you never know The apprx figures of Bahubali 2 - The Conclusion (All Langs) after six days are as follows.
India - 624 cr apprx (First film to GROSS over 600 crore) Both Bahubali (2015 and Dangal (2016) managed to cross 500 crore and are the only films to do so. GROSS figures are the total amount collected at the box office.
Overseas - $26 million apprx (168 crore) It stands in sixth place as far as Overseas business goes for Hindi films after six days.
Worldwide - 792 crore (After 6 days)
The film is going to cruise past 1000 crore easily within ten days and remains where it eventually finishes.
Bahubali 2 (Hindi) Is Biggest Blockbuster This Decade
Friday 05 May 2017 11.30 IST
Box Office India Trade Network
Bahubali 2 - The Conclusion (Hindi) has grossed 245 crore nett apprx in its first week and smashed records by unimaginable margins. The previous first week record was Sultan at 208.99 crore nett and this film has done around 17% more but that does not tell the whole story as if we look at the territory figures the gaps are much more. Sultan in Mumbai held the first week record at 61.59 crore nett and Bahubali 2 (Hindi) has grossed 85 crore nett plus. In Delhi /UP the figure of Sultan was 40 crore nett and here it is 45 crore nett but this circuit has capacity problems which limits the gains. In East Punjab, Bahubali 2 (Hindi) grossed 27.50 crore nett apprx and the record first week business of Sultan was 21.96 crore nett.
The film is such a huge blockbuster that it will start to break ALL TIME CIRCUIT records in the next day or two. In a circuit like CP Berar the film has grossed more in one week than the lifetime of Sultan. A blockbuster of this proportion has not been seen in a long time and it much bigger than the likes of Dangal, PK, Bajrangi Bhaijaan and 3 Idiots.
Bahubali 2 - The Conclusion is easily the biggest blockbuster of the decade and may well turn out to the biggest blockbuster this century also. Gadar - Ek Prem Katha (2001) is the biggest blockbuster post 2000 and the way Bahubali 2 is going at the moment you can't rule the film turning out to be a bigger blockbuster than that film.
