Shatru Sesham: Sequel of Baahubali
Sagas have no beginning or conclusion! They begin long before we know and continue even after they have ended.
Mahishmati, a kingdom in ancient India, has witnessed the ugly face of ambition, power lust, manipulation, jealousy, crimes against humanity, a vicious cycle of deaths and vendetta for the sake of its throne. The whole kingdom has seethed and raged in this smoldering cauldron for twenty-five years. The rightful heir of the kingdom, Mahendra Baahubali returns after twenty-five years and avenges his parents and saves his motherland from the evil clutches of the tyrant, Bhallaladeva.
Under the watchful eyes of Kattappa, the royal retainer of Mahishmati, the wise and enlightening counsel of the Queen Mother, Devasena, and his Royal Consort, Avanthika's constant and unwavering support, Mahendra learns the ropes of kingship and begins ruling Mahishmati. A short grace period of peace and prosperity ensue. Mahendra has become the proud father of a bright and vivacious daughter, Bhagiradhi and is eagerly awaiting the birth of his next progeny. At this point, things start going terribly wrong for this royal family and kingdom.
In a world continually in flux, a world where what appears in not what is true, where the strongest of relationships are forged out of grand lies, can the siblings stay true to themselves and their inner spirit? Can the younger generation step into the shoes of their illustrious forefathers and reinstate the former glory of this once proud kingdom? Follow their journey in life as they leave their imprints on the sands of time and annals of Mahishmati's history.
