Mahishmati is held accountable by Garuda Rajyam for looking after their kingdom's holy idol. When Sivagami refutes the accusations and declares war, Baahubali begs for more time to find a peaceful solution. After discovering that it was all a ruse by Kalakeya to topple the empire, Baahubali is determined to get Mahishmati's dignity back. He must, however, pay a high price for his valour.
After several decades, Baahubali is credited with bringing folklore film back to life on a grander scale and developing enduring characters in an engrossing setting. Nevertheless, the production company's numerous attempts to increase the franchise's appeal outside of the cinema (via video games, virtual reality, merchandising, and novels) have only been somewhat successful thus far.
A fresh attempt to capitalise on the popularity of the franchise is made in Baahubali: Crown of Blood, but the outcome is just as unique and unsatisfactory. After seven years of Baahubali 2 (from the makers of Baahubali: The Lost Legends), it will have to pass a litmus test to entice audiences to revisit the Mahishmati world in animation.

The two-episode spinoff takes place a few years before to Baahubali's assassination. With the aid of Kattappa, the most devoted servant in the realm, Baahubali has the chance to demonstrate his mettle when mysterious enemies threaten Mahishmati. From Kaal Dootha and Rakta deva to Garuda Rajyam, a more recent cast of characters enters the cosmos.

The episode examines a distinct issue without straying from Baahubali's main narrative or the characteristics of its important characters. Sivagami, despite her son Bhallaladeva's jealousy, feels that Baahubali is the Mahishmati's torchbearer. The second episode makes clear why Baahubali is a man of the people and how, under the worst of circumstances, he defends his nation.
The story takes an intriguing turn when Kattappa, forced into exile, must protect Baahubali in a precarious scenario. Despite having a straightforward and universal plot, Baahubali: Crown of Blood is a huge disappointment due to its poor execution. The programme seems amateurish for a brand that helped Telugu/Indian movies break across internationally. The artistic quality of Baahubali's production was a major factor in its popularity. Through the use of costumes, production design, and cinematography, it took spectators through the streets of a fantastical planet that was both enthralling and accessible at the same time. The production quality of Baahubali: Crown of Blood is too sloppy to appreciate its finer points.
