It has been nine years since the release of SS Rajamouli's epic action drama film, Baahubali: The Beginning. The 2015 Tollywood flick attained cult status instantly after its release. Interestingly, the film, shot simultaneously in Telugu and Tamil, also became a blockbuster in its Hindi-dubbed version. Cast members include Prabhas (in dual roles), Anushka Shetty, Ramya Krishna, Sathyaraj, Nassar, Rana Daggubati, and Tamannaah Bhatia. You can watch the Hindi-dubbed version of Baahubali: The Beginning on OTT, which is streaming on Netflix (leaving on August 6) and SonyLIV (OTTplay Premium).

Baahubali: The Beginning film overview and plot

The film is the first of two installments and chronicles the adventures of Sivudu and his love, Avantika, as they try to free Devasena, the former queen of Mahishmati, from King Bhallaladeva's cruel reign. Baahubali 2: The Conclusion ends the plot.


In Baahubali: The Beginning, Shivudu (Prabhas), a carefree young man, relentlessly follows his heart's desire as he grows up in a rural tribal village. As a result, he embarks on an excursion into uncharted territory. While travelling, he develops feelings for Avantika (Tamannaah), a soldier from the Nishada tribe. In an effort to capture her heart, Shivudu risks everything to save Devasena (Anushka) from the clutches of the despot King Bhallaladeva (Rana). While escaping with Devasena, Shivudu learns the truth about his mysterious history, and he also manages to liberate her.

Here we get a flashback to when King Vikramadeva of Mahishmati died unexpectedly, leaving his son Baahubali (Prabhas) without a father figure. Sivagami (Ramya), who is Bijjaladeva's (Nassar) wife and Bhalladeva's original mother, adopts her nephew and raises him as her own. She is virtuous and compassionate. As a result of this decision, Bhallaladeva, forced to share his mother's love and the title of crown prince, secretly develops intense jealousy and hatred towards Baahubali. The fact that his mother crowns Baahubali as king of Mahishmati only intensifies his hatred for him.

Following the revelation that Shivudu is indeed Baahubali and Devasena's son, the film concludes on a suspenseful note, leaving viewers to ponder Baahubali's demise.

Release and reception

The film, along with its Hindi and Malayalam dubs, made its global debut on July 10, 2015.
