Storyline

Thota Ramudu (N. T. Rama Rao), son of a lowly gardener, falls for the princess of Ujjain (Malathi). Her father, the king of Ujjain, sets a challenge before him to prove himself worthy of the princess's hand. Nepala Manthrikudu (S. V. Ranga Rao), a sorcerer, contacts Ramudu and promises that he can help him in his mission, aided by the goddess Patala Bhairavi. However, Ramudu is not aware of the sorcerer's real plan: to sacrifice this young, brave lad to the goddess in order to attain a magic statuette, which would grant any wish. Written by Soumitra

finer details and good photography with so minimum Equipment &Money
13 January 2006 | by duttalurisrSee all my reviews

The exciting story line with so much magic to hold the audience interest. Photography in its best form, even with minimal equipment and economic situation.

Highly experienced actors and actresses with so much finery in every detail...including the shape of scent bottle of the mantrika(SV Ranga Rao) not going to any obscene or undue weight age to any character. Nodoubt it is one of the most exciting and finest movie i have ever seen after "maya bazaar"(old B/w movie, not new movie with same name)which featured same SV ranga Rao , but in a positive role. I never get to see that acting , anymore now.
