The Biggest Crisis On The Indian Internet Today – Avoiding Kattappa And Baahubali

No spoilers here, don't worry.

Posted on

2015 saw the release of S.S. Rajamouli's Baahubali: The Beginning – a film that a majority of India hadn't heard about till its release, but which would go on to become its highest-grossing film of all time.

The two-part fantasy epic tells the story of an ancient kingdom, and the fight between two warriors, Baahubali and Bhallala Deva, to claim its throne.

The first part ended on a shocking cliffhanger, with the protagonist, Baahubali, getting seekh-kebabed by his closest ally, Kattappa.

The iconic moment gave rise to the (grammatically incorrect) "Why Kattappa Killed Bahubali" meme that has lasted for almost two years now.

In the lead up to the release of the concluding sequel, the Indian internet has been taken over by Baahubali and Kattappa.

And the second, can be answered only by you! #BahubaliOfTrafficDiscipline

From memes to jokes, the duo has been unavoidable these past few weeks.

Even those who don't care about the film haven't been able to help but talk about it.

I don't care why Katappa killed Bahubali but who killed RCB this season?

Fans who lined up to watch the film FDFS have now found out "why Kattappa killed Baahubali", and are making the internet and WhatsApp a landmine for people who are yet to catch it.

People tweeting Baahubali spoilers, I really hope Katappa kills you as well


Katappa killed Bahubali because Bahubali saw Bahubali 2 first day first show and kept on blurting spoilers in the entire kingdom

Despite their pleas, the spoilers have taken over everyone's feeds.

There are people who paid 500 for Bahubali FDFS just to tweet spoilers.

And then there's the minority suffering in silence – people who don't care about spoilers, or even the movie itself, but still have to deal with Baahubali everywhere they look.

Am I the only one who's not interested in #Baahubali & #Baahubali2 ?? I REALLY don't care why Kattappa killed Baahubali. No, really.
