Vijaya Studio pioneered the genre of the ‘folklore’ costume-fantasy film in the 50s and relaunched it in the 90s with larger budgets and computer-driven special effects. The King’s second wife, and hero’s (Balkrishna) mother, is rejected by her husband and finds shelter with some holy men. The son, separated from his mother, sets out in search of a magic potion when the King is afflicted with disease. Adding to the plot is the fact that the princess (Roja) too is cursed. The resemblance to e.g. Patala Bhairavi (1951) is heightened by the fact that N.T. Rama Rao’s son Balakrishna plays the main role.
