"Golden dreams

and great heartache,"

"churn in the depth of the soul

of this river...called life."

"When great mountains lay

in its path,"

"it cuts deep gorges through

the keep flowing!.."

"This unstoppable, inexhaustible

river called life..."

"it is called

the river of life."

Lord Shiva!

For all the sins

I have committed,

if death is the only redemption,

then take my life!...

But this boy should live...

He should live for his mother

who is waiting for him...

he should live to ascend

the throne Mahishmati...

Mahendra Baahubali should live!

Dear me!

Hey! What are you

waiting for? Hurry!

Hey! Be careful!

What happened?

- I am not sure, master.

With all the jewelry on her,

she must have been

a queen or something.

She died with her

hand pointing up!


What happened?

They must have come

here to kill her.

Looks like she got

the better of them.


Oh my God! A cave!

We never knew this existed!

Looks like it goes all the way

to the top of the mountain!

If the lady was holding the

baby up, pointing to the top,

Maybe she wanted us

to take it back there!

You are out of your mind?

They sent soldiers

to kill an infant!

What dangers do

you think await him...

if you send him back there!

- But, Sanga..

This is my baby.

I have no children...

and the river Goddess

has given this boy to me.

If anyone of you object,

I will trample upon your necks.

What are you waiting for?

Close the cave.



What are you doing here,

my dear?

What is up there, mother?

There are ghosts

and demons up there!

They prey on

and eat little kids!

But I want to go up there,


Don't ever say you want

to go up there! Let us go.

How many times have I told you

not to climb up there?

Why do you keep doing it?

You are my darling, right?

You won't do it again, right?

Looks like he will

make it this time.

No way!

Look at the water mountain!

It goes way up into the clouds...

...And how many times has he fallen

from that hundred feet?

He always slips and falls

after the first hundred feet.

Yeah, he slipped and fell

at least a hundred times.


He is going to come sliding down again.


Your mother is up to something there!

'Shiva, Shiva, Shiva, Shiva,

Shiva, Shiva, Shiva, Shiva!'

That is fifteen!

Pour another 101 times and

your prayers will be answered!

Sage, if I do this,

will my son listen to me?

Will he stop trying to climb

up that mountain?

Of course!

This is a powerful ritual!

Pour this water over Shiva,

with all your heart,

and He will guide your son

onto the right path.

Alright! 0! Sage.

- Hail Shiva!

Mother, you are not

getting younger, are you?

It won't help you if you

run around so much!

Out of my way!

- Mother, please listen to me!

Why should I?

Do you ever listen to me?

Father, can you please

tell her to stop?


- What?

Where are the flowers?

- Father! Father!

Let go of me!

Alright! Let me do it on your behalf.


No way!

Lord Shiva won't accept it.

The one who took the oath

will have to pour the water!

Sire, carry on with what you are doing.

- Hail Lord Shiva!


- What is it now?

How about I carry you...

and you can pour the water

over Lord Shiva? Fine?

No way!

Lord Shiva won't accept it.

The one who took the oath

will have to pour the water

and she has to walk up

to pour the water!

Sage, are you and your Shiva

planning to kill my mother?

How should I know what

the Lord has in store?

Lord Shiva!


See what your lad is up to now!

What is it this time?

Shiva, stop!
