Why Katappa Killed Bahubali?

The question of the century is, why Katappa killed Bahubali?  Many admins of various pages on Facebook literally got their bread & butter by en cashing this question.

This is probably the biggest swerve we ever witnessed in any Indian cinema, I mean while I was watching the movie I was on the edge of my seat and then this happened and I was like, What the Heaven I just witnessed?

So there are a numerous number of theories going on why Katappa killed Bahubali.

So while I was watching the movie for the second time during its premiere, something clicked and I thought that this might really be a reason on why Katappa killed Bahubali.

And before you stop reading this further let me assure you this is not any real spoiler or something like that, like any other movie buff I have a habit of assuming things and I am just presenting my views on what could be the probable reason for why Katappa killed Bahubali.


As we are aware of the fact that Katappa was the loyal soldier of the mahishmati kingdom, and he was not even afraid of giving up his life for the sake of security of his kingdom, and he believed in total devotion towards his work and towards the kingdom.

And you all might remember that during the climax of the movie, the clause was that whoever would kill the senapati of the kalkeya tribe would be the next king.

And the one in reality who killed the senapati was Bhallala Deva but due to his methodology of winning the war he was not chosen the king instead Bahubali was made the new king.

So if we closely monitor the character of Katappa we can safely assume that this was not fair as per his moral standings, and thus he might have killed Bahubali because of him being made the king even when he was not the one who killed the senapati of the kalkeya tribe.

Thus this is my take on why Katappa might have killed Bahubali. As because the one who should have been the king is Bhallala deva.


So folks what do you think might have been the reason for the killing of Bahubali.

One thought on “Why Katappa Killed Bahubali?

  1. The much kept secret behind the killing of Bahubali at the hands of Kattappa was leaked on the WhatsApp.Kattappa’s ancestors have sworn to obey the orders of the Mahishmati king. Not just Kattappa, but everyone born in this kingdom be it his ancestors or the generations that would follow are meant to serve the Mahishmati royals.Once Bahubali becomes the emperor of the kingdom, he falls in love with certain Devasena.The twist in the tale is that Bhallala Deva is also in love with Devasena. According to the instructions of Rajmata whoever marries Devasena will have to leave the empire and will be exiled. Bahubali agrees to this condition and decides to marry Devasena and leave Mahishmati kingdom.Once Bahubali departs the kingdom, it comes under the attack of son of Kalakeya, which forces Bahubali to return Mahishmati and save his kingdom. This drastic change of scenario sparks fear in Bhallala Deva, who thinks Rajmata will give reins back to Bahubali. Then, Bhallala Deva orders Kattappa to kill Bahubali. Kattappa, who is under the oath of obeying the king’s order does what is told.So I mean to say that indirectly Rajmata is the reason behind it and not Kattappa.
