Great Movie by a great Director
3 September 2008 | by sachuSee all my reviews

An untold story from Ramayana, Great Epic. Lomapada King ,a friend of Dasharadha Maharaj, is in a big dilemma. Due to a curse from a Hindu Brahmin( which is considered as a grave mistake) the country is facing a heavy scarce.King tried whatever he could.In the end his Rajaguru comes up with the solution that a young Brahmin named Rishyashrungan, who doesn't know what a female is, should do a yaga(rituals) to help the country.Vaishali was appointed for that task.The movie talks about the tragic story of her and her mother.

A untold story within the Great Epic even, did a miracle in the Silver screen. The strong story line and dialogs made the movie an odd one in the Malayalam movie industry.
