This characteristic Reddy fantasy is based on an earlier Tamil film, Jagathala Prathapan (1944) starring P.U. Chinappa. A king tests his two sons by asking what they desire most. Jagajittu says that he would wish to use the moonlit night to slay his enemies in their sleep. Jagadeka replies that he wishes to be with four heavenly angels. The latter, banished from home, has to make his wish come true by freeing a distressed angel cursed by Indrakumari before he can be readmitted.
