When Shiva, the son of Bahubali, learns about his heritage, he begins to look for answers. His story is juxtaposed with past events that unfolded in the Mahishmati Kingdom.
Kattappa narrates the story of Amarendra Baahubali to Shivudu, who learns his lineage as the prince of Mahishmati and the son of Amarendra Baahubali. Shivudu, now Mahendra Baahubali, decides to dethrone and punish Bhallaladeva for all wrongdoings of his past with the help of Kattappa.
Upon listening to a narrative of his parents’ love story and the treachery that led to his father’s death, Shiva, the son of Bahubali, must claim his place as the rightful heir to the throne of the Mahishmati Kingdom, but first, he must avenge the injustice committed against his parents and people.
