     16Vishwanath’s sequel to Shankarabharanam 
     17(1979) concentrated on classical dance. The 
     18drunken dance critic Balakrishna Bhagavatar 
     19(Kamalahasan) writes a review denouncing a 
     20mediocre but much-touted dancer (Sailaja). It 
     21turns out, in a flashback, that the dancer is the 
     22daughter of the reviewer’s old flame Madhavi 
     23(Jayapradha). Madhavi persuades Balakrishna 
     24to teach her daughter. He eventually dies of a 
     25broken heart but his pupil achieves mastery in 
     26classical dance so that the classical art (cf. 
     27Shankarabharanam) will live on. The film is 
     28dominated by Kamalahasan, who 
     29demonstrated a remarkable, unexpected skill to 
     30dance the Bharat Natyam, although the rest of 
     31the film’s classicism is pure kitsch.
