A little about Baahubali: In today's world, when annihilation lurks around every innocent corner, you have no time to choose between Peace and Violence. When your most beloved soul-mate is kidnapped and disrobed, you cannot dither between non-violence and brutal retribution. When your father is gunned down in public for wanting to become more powerful, you cannot spend time debating the merits of "ahimsa" vs. bloodshed. Today, when your very own survival is threatened, you cannot turn the other cheek. Violence, retribution and gaining supreme power are your only alternatives. You have no choice.
The total breakdown of the judicial mechanism has ensured that the people have taken Law and Order into their own hands. The physically stronger you are, the more power you wield. In this chaotic state of utter lawlessness, "ahimsa" is given a quiet burial. And when "Ahimsa" is dead . . . a " Baahubali " rises. "Baahubali" is about today's violent times. "Baahubali" is about Raw Power. Absolute Power. A "Baahubali" is law unto himself. He is not bound by the State, Society or the Law of the Land. In today's times, a Baahubali's most potent weapon for survival is Violence.
