The only son of the Royal Astrologer, Narsin (Om Prakash) namely Gopal (Bharat Bhushan) is not interested in astrology but in music and songs, much to the dismay of Narsin. Gopal's talents are well-known and he could become the Emperor's Chief Musician if he wins in the contest. His rivals live next door, and in order to win the approval of the emperor (Chandrashekhar), they poison Gopal's drink, and Gopal loses his voice completely. His mom (Leela Chitnis) is sorry at the loss of his voice. A young dancing girl, Gopi (Nimmi) takes interest in Gopal, and through her help and a hard knock on the head, he recovers his voice. But Gopal's challenges are far from over, and he will be called upon to prove his worth, as well as his association with Gopi. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

A good film with good music and acting
1 June 2007 | by (Mysore, India) – See all my reviews

It is a musical,set in the background of Chitradurga in Ksarnataka, during Tippu Sultan's time. The film an adaptation of Kannada Novel Hamsageethe, written by one of the top Kannada writers ThaRaSu. Too many deviations and the film fails to reproduce the real flavor of the novel. The film is marked by excellent music and good acting by key actors. Some of the songs sung by Mannadea nd Lata Mangeshkar are unforgettable. The famous classical singer Pandit Bhimsen Joshi has rendered a key song, in an excellent manner. Musical score by Sankar and Jaikishan is excellent. Bharat Bhushan as Gopal and and Nimmi as Gopi are excellent. Shyam Kumar shines in a brief role as Tippu Sultan
