and bow my head to our enemies You have travelled
all over the world You were granted an audience by
Genghis Khan’s grandson Kublai Khan With your worldly knowledge… …hoping you would help us
with an escape strategy …we invited you here ‘My dear Kakatiya people’ A similar situation arose
for an Indian emperor To learn how that king
faced this challenge… …you must listen to this tale Who is that mighty emperor? Rudramadevi ‘The Kakatiya reign is not over a small
kingdom that belongs to Orugallu alone’ ‘From Kalinga in the East’ ‘Karnata in the West’ ‘Madhyadesa in the North’ ‘…Kakatiya kingdom extended

Destroyer of evil Praise be to Goddess Kakatamma King Ganapati Deva’s wife, our queen
will deliver an heir to the throne soon This news will be
announced shortly If our queen gives birth to a daughter… …king of Devagiri’s army will
lay siege and enslave us again The hell we went through when they held
King Ganapati Deva captive is enough If the same situation arises
we might as well die We only want a prince to be born! God Rudralinga Bless our queen
with a little prince Guardian deity Ellamma! Let our queen be
blessed with a baby boy Gods and Goddesses of our dynasty My dear brother
Hari Hara Deva Did you notice
the people’s expectations? They want our old cousin
to have a son If it’s a daughter… (scornful laughter) …it will be a case of
empty expectations! What you said is absolutely true King Ganapati Deva is not
destined to have a male heir Only a girl baby will be born With the help
of buried treasure… …to build the 7 walls of
the fort that are incomplete …as an incarnate
of Goddess Shakti …that girl child will save
our entire kingdom Woman…! To satiate the desires of men
and to serve their every need… …Lord Brahma created
this beautiful angel called ‘girl’ Not to rule a kingdom Keep aside the king’s horoscope Check if my master’s horoscope
predicts he will ascend the throne The Kakatiya throne belongs to us Find the auspicious date
for our coronation Murari Deva Ask the minor chieftains
who favor us to be prepared As soon as his daughter is born
if the king renounces his throne… …at least his life will be spared Otherwise he will set foot
on his journey to Heaven Your words echo
my thoughts, brother My lord, unaware of the fact
you are the local thieves here… …they are afraid of King Singhana
of Devagiri who is a neighboring thief! If he lays siege on our land… …we will be wiped out Dust to dust! To close the chapter of
the Kakatiya dynasty… …get our troops
ready for action Sharpen your weapons which will
slash even eye lashes to pieces! Heighten the spirits of elephantry
and cavalry with spirits Make them mighty and strong If a daughter is born
to King Ganapati Deva… …he and his people
will be broken hearted Right then let the death-bell toll That ring is the invitation
for us to advance and attack I will gift the Kakatiya kingdom… …to my 2nd grandson, Mahadeva Soldiers, get ready to fight Good news, my lord Queen Somambadevi has given
birth to a beautiful girl baby You gave me
good news indeed But this is not
the wish of the people They wanted a male heir When this news reaches
our enemies’ ears… …they will probably
be happier than us Shiva Devaiah, even before
you gave me this good news… …I got the news
through my spies Our enemies of Devagiri are sharpening
their swords to attack our people it seems Our allies and minor chieftains
are eyeing our throne with interest We can stop them temporarily But what will become of
our kingdom without a male heir? Should my people
be enslaved again? What will be the future
of my clan and my kingdom? Only if there is no male heir
should you be scared What are you saying? Your majesty! The gender of the baby is known
only to my wife who was the midwife… …our queen, you and me This child born as an incarnate
of Lord Shiva as Rudra… …let us name her Rudramadevi To our people
we will introduce him… …as prince Rudradeva Is that possible? To avoid danger, we should
forget the word ‘impossible’ Not only to our enemies
and our own people… …even the new born baby
should never know she is a girl Heir to the Durjaya dynasty The future prince of
the Kakatiya kingdom Sri Sri Sri Rudradeva
The little prince Long live prince Rudradeva! Our future heir
to the throne Long live our little prince! Can you hear that? The sound of people cheering Heir to the throne and
our enemy is born Rudradeva! The scriptures cannot go wrong Birth and death are God’s will God writes, huh? Your death is written in our hands Unable to kill the new born baby
they killed the astrologer He wasn’t even lucky enough
to wear this pearl necklace Ganapati Deva has a son? A new enemy is born
for our Devagiri dynasty And to top it all, he is named
after Lord Shiva as Rudradeva My father Jaitugi,
king of the Yadavas… …brutally killed Rudradeva,
Ganapati Deva’s uncle They have named
this child after him! This feud has been spouting
hatred for 2 generations Is he extending this enmity
to the third generation? Ganapati Deva has not
forgotten anything Shall we wage a war, Your Majesty? Happiness is half the strength To Ganapati Deva, his male heir
gives strength equal to a mountain Let us be calm for a while Our enthusiastic plans have now
vanished into thin air If you fear the male heir
hearing his name… …what can we do, Your Majesty? Army commander Do you think I will be scared
of the Kakatiya male heir? No Not at all Like a hungry cub, right before
my eyes my grandson is growing up Mahadeva First tell our prince, knives are
not used to cut nails Knives cut necks
as well as nails! Grandfather, whenever the time
is right, Orugallu fort is mine Kakatiya crown is also mine Bravo Rudradeva At this very young age itself your
swordsmanship is praiseworthy Like Karna’s armor and ear-ring… …this armor and sword
will be your strength Shiva Devaiah’s order is
like Lord Shiva’s command! Rudradeva, to combat your enemies… …and protect your kingdom
your training ends today Life will now teach you how to
uphold justice and Dharma Your coronation awaits you Let us now proceed to Orugallu Welcome, prince of Kakatiya kingdom The dove Shiva Devaiah
has taught to fly… …after 14 years has
flown into the fortress Tomorrow or day after this bird
will be sacrificed by our sword or spear (holy chant) Salutations to my father Long live prince Rudradeva (constant cheering) Rudradeva, to greet you
and welcome you… …are these princes from
our feudatory kingdoms Chalukya Veerabhadra
Prince of Nidavartyapuram Hail Chalukya Veerabhadra Welcome, Chalukya Veerabhadra We have heard many
stories of your valor… …on the banks of
our river Godavari Will you befriend me? Prince of Vardamanapuram Son of Gona Buddha Reddy Prince Gona Ganna Reddy Welcome Gona Ganna Reddy Hail Gona Ganna Reddy Long live Gona Ganna Reddy Prince, it seems you are a brave warrior Will you consent to
clash swords with me? He is 2 years younger than you But in warfare tactics… …he is the bravest of braves
Gona Ganna Reddy Really?
Let us see The way you swirl your sword… …looks like you will be my only rival
in this kingdom, Ganna Reddy Gona Ganna Reddy Prince, you are wanted back
in Vardamanapuram at once Your father’s younger brother
Lakkumaiyah Reddy has sent word Leave immediately I take leave, prince We will meet again in
‘the festival of the brave-heart’ I take leave, sir His father, Gona Buddha Reddy
has passed away unexpectedly Vardamanapuram
is in a state of shock This news is so distressing Even a warrior has to face distress Do not get dejected, young prince If we roam around
the streets of Orugallu… …you will feel relaxed
and rejuvenated – Come with me
– What? Outside the fort? I am not allowed to step out Permission?
That too for you? It won’t be interesting
if you are bound by rules always But if Shiva Devaiah gets to know? We’ll be back
before he finds out Come quickly My dearest friend…! This waterfall jumps in joy
just like us and weaves its way I also grew up amidst
these trees and creepers But do you know how happy I feel
roaming around with you like this Is this what you came
running to see, Prince? Did this beautiful sculpture
lure you here? Poets and sculptors have
varied vivid imagination With unlimited imagination
and aesthetic sense… …they create women
in beautiful poses Woman? Maiden Did you see the beauty
of her breasts? Only Rathi, the Goddess of Love
is blessed this way Only the apsara Menaka
has such a petite waist like this Urvasi’s thighs Graceful curve of
Rambha’s hip and loins All these sculpted together
is this beautiful work of art There is no other girl
as beautiful on this earth Girl…? Then…? Instead of a female, can a male
possess such graceful curves? Will you strip and
join us in the river? Outside, in the open? When girls bathe together… …why can’t we boys
do the same? Come, climb up Come, my dear prince Rudradeva.. Mother? Amma? Ma…? Mother There is no difference
between you and me, right? Why are you dressed
like this then? Why did you raise me like this? Ma…? Oh! My dear child Not just your upbringing Even raising you like this is essential
for the history of our kingdom To stop the annexing greed
of neighboring countries… …to retain the resources and
cultural heritage of our land …instilling fear in enemies …we should be a strong
and very powerful kingdom Satavahanas Ikshvakus Vishnukundinas And after the Chalukyas of Vengi… …our Kakatiya kingdom
is the most powerful Enemies on all 4 sides are
Yadavas of Devagiri, Seuna Pandyas Tribes from Turpu Hoysalas We are surrounded by
scheming and self centered allies These power-crazy
crafty foxes thrive here In our kingdom known for
its righteous rule… …common people will suffer
much more than our soldiers If our enemies had got wind of
our heir apparent’s gender right then… …our Kakatiya kingdom would have
merged with the dust long ago With noose around kings’ heads… …handcuffs around people’s wrists …our culture and lineage
would have perished To infuse fear into
our enemies’ minds …confidence in the hearts
of our own people …forced us to lie about
your birth and upbringing As a child it was easy
for us to convince our subjects Now that she has
attained puberty… …is it right to make them
believe she is a boy? Till date we were able to
achieve what we had planned Now whatever maybe
the repercussion… …we have to face it We shall announce
in the assembly hall Make the necessary arrangements You took a bold decision
for the welfare of our kingdom I shall remain as Rudradeva
till that goal is fulfilled King’s kith and kin Hari Hara Deva and Murari Deva’s
brother-in-law Nagadeva… …is coming to tame
the mad elephant Come Come Face me Like tugging the sari off a woman… …he thought it easy
to tame an elephant Is there no brave man in Orugallu
to tame this mad elephant? How can that be, Prasad Aditya? Of course there is Our valiant prince Rudradeva Even if you don’t remember… …we haven’t forgotten Fearless and courageous As brave as a lion and
one who knows all the tricks… …are mere folklore We haven’t seen the valor
of our prince face to face Despite being your kith and kin Even the people of our kingdom… …have not set eyes on
Prince Rudradeva it seems Will our prince appear at least
on a special day as today? Will we be blessed by
his august presence? We want Rudradeva
The young prince We want to see our prince Rudradeva, our future king Your Majesty It is the king’s duty to fulfill
the wishes of his people Prasad Aditya Request Rudradeva to come ‘Wonder how much this drug
will affect the elephant’ ‘I dread to think of
the prince’s plight’ Slayer of enemies Bravest warrior on earth Welcome Prince Rudradeva Long live Prince Rudradeva! (loud cheers) Chief minister My eyes perceive
Rudradeva as a lion Long live young prince Rudradeva (continuous cheering) Our ‘Raja Gajakesari’
Prince Rudradeva Long live! Bravest of the brave Long live Long live! Who told you the Hindu God of love
Manmadha has no form, Ganapamba? Look over there Perfection in form and skill
is your brother Rudradeva Rudradeva
the brave warrior To prevent young girls
like me from falling for him… …did he stay behind
in his fort all along? Muktamba is on a poetic spree I am his own sister And I hardly see him, except
during festivals or special events (overlap of voices) – Shake my hand
– Mine…? Where on earth
are the guards? When girls fall all over him… …isn’t it their duty
to restrain them? Are you angry about them
falling all over him? Or sad you are unable to?! Did you notice this, chief minister? Look at the attention he is
receiving from all the girls here? We must fix the perfect
alliance for him at once Otherwise like the ‘gopikas’
drawn to Lord Krishna… …how many girls will
flock towards our prince? Wonder how many zenanas
we may have to build Our ‘Raja Gajakesari’
prince Rudradeva Long live! “King of kings, Maharaja” “Shri Ganapati Deva” “Son of Mahadeva” “Heir of Kakatiya ancestor Rudra” “Synonym of Shakti and Shiva!” “Long live, monarch of India” “May you record victory
in the annals of history” “Even an elephant demented
will be under you spell, my friend” “Even your enemies enraptured by you
will salute you in reverence true” “Telugu’s beacon of true light” “Sliver of lightning always bright” “Your fame has no boundary
A beacon of light exemplary” “Like a mother tends to her child
you are our leader unrivalled” “Emperor unequalled in name and fame
With sky-reaching cheers we acclaim” “Even an elephant demented
will be under you spell, my friend” “Even your enemies enraptured by you
will salute you in reverence true” “No limit for festivity
Drums beat with feisty” “Beat the drums in perfect rhythm
Celebration gathers momentum” “Walk on fire and with ferocious fervor
Pay obeisance to Bhairava, the destroyer” “Can’t your shoulder’s power
be detected by a single scar?” “Daily on swords feasting
Rivers of blood radiating” “Trance-dance in a frenzy
On a revenging spree” “Like Adivaraha, avatar of Lord Vishnu
won’t you be guided to victory too?” “With your rule, bring glory and pride
to the Andhra kingdom far and wide” “Let your rule be evergreen
festooned with merrymaking” “Let you reign continue
for 1000 years through” “With religious equality” “With rapport and unanimity” “Righteousness and honesty” “May your fame be
infinite for eternity” “Let the land of Bharath proclaim
laud your name, proud of your fame” “Even an elephant demented
will be under you spell, my friend” “Even your enemies enraptured by you
will salute you in reverence true” The curiosity of
Rudradeva’s whereabouts And his appearance on one side After my grandfather
King Singhana died… …my brother Krishna Bhupathi
ascended the throne is the other side We were forced to
play a waiting game We cannot wait any longer First we should ride rough shod
over our enemy using our intelligence Rising from the highlands of Devagiri… …the rivers Krishna, Godavari,
Manjira flow through Orugallu land …joining the sea
are our new weapons Stop the rivers that serve as life source
flowing into the Kakatiya kingdom Build dams Sacrifice those who restrain your efforts
to the Goddess of that dam Without water, instead
of falling at our feet… …will the Kakatiyas die hiccupping? Wait and watch With just the wave of my hand… …how I, Mahadeva, will reduce
the Kakatiyas to tears To good health
and gladness! Why is the spirit so strong?
Didn’t you mix enough water? The chieftains gathered here
should please forgive me People are dying without water
to quench their thirst How can we mix water to spirit? Ever since the king of Devagiri
stopped the flow of water… …not only to bathe …we might have to use spirit
for other ablutions too! True, people are running from pillar
to post, searching for food and water They are also opposing Without any fanfare,
king Mahadeva is preparing… …to lay siege on
the Kakatiya kingdom Who is Mahadeva? The Kakatiya throne
belongs to us, Ambadeva Exactly my thought Let us use the dissatisfaction
and confusion amongst the people… …to our advantage Using this as an excuse… …let us instigate Rudradeva
to wage a war against Mahadeva He will muster up his army
and leave his kingdom to fight When he has travelled
considerable distance… …half way through, we will stop
the armies of our neighboring kingdoms Rudradeva by then would have
reached Devagiri with his army As far as I know… …till now no Kakatiya ruler has won
any battle with the Devagiri kings Neither has he come back alive We can occupy Orugallu fort
which will be left unprotected First we solve our internal problem Only then we fight
our external problems Is this Rudradeva’s new political strategy? No Retaliation for the underhand
politics of Mahadeva It is not right to label our people’s
problem as their headache And go on a war footing We owe our people
an explanation Oho! Does that mean
you will sit under a banyan tree… …and announce with the beat of drums
convening a public meeting? Indeed, Ambadeva I will go from village to village I will talk to the people Only after I solve their problem
will I wage a war I never dreamt a Kakatiya heir
would be such a coward And he would flee fearing war Not even in my wildest dreams! Imagine a king meeting
his people face to face Wonder to what depths of
misery our kingdom will sink to! The very thought of it scares me We as chieftains here
show our unanimous dissent And walk out of this assembly ‘Rudradeva who trampled
the conspiracy of the chieftains…’ ‘…disregarding the danger of
his well-guarded secret being revealed’ ‘…started on his journey
to reach out to his people’ ‘His footprints outside the fort…’ ‘…started writing a new chapter
in the annals of history’ Without even a drop of water
we are facing severe drought We are suffering without water to
drink or even 1 square meal a day It’s better to die in war
than in this gnawing hunger We are ready to die Why are you retreating, prince? We will fight! But not to die To make our next generation live Afflicting our lands with
drought, hunger and thirst… …Mahadeva of Devagiri has
stopped the flow of the rivers He can stop the rivers But can he stop
the rain by fencing it? Will raindrops not fall? Won’t leaves sprout? Rain water is enough for us Will our land not be lush green? To save rain water
as per Kakatiya lineage… …in the name of
King Ganapati Deva ‘Ganapa Samudram’ Named after our
king’s mother and sisters ‘Paiyamba Sagaram’
and ‘Kunda Samudram’ ‘Rudra Samudram’
in the name of our prince The task of building reservoirs has begun We are dying of thirst here And you claim digging a well
will provide us water That is the reason
we are organizing… …canals to be dug
and channelized Water will be provided for agriculture Until this water scarcity is solved
we abolish all taxes Until we are able to
stand on our own feet… …we have no time
to think of war After that, the battlefield
is never too far Only if you live that long! Don’t dig lakes Dig your own grave first! Not just water Our king Mahadeva will
destroy every blade of grass Long Live
King Mahadeva! Mahadeva’s men have
sneaked into our land You dare stop our water? We will gather the blood of
your Devagiri conspirators And use it to irrigate our Kaktiya fields Even if another
1000 Mahadevas arise… …to destroy injustice and deceit
our one prince Rudradeva will do Long Live Rudradeva,
Savior-prince of Kakatiya! (cheering continues) Well done, Rudradeva For a valiant man like you… …laying siege once is not enough Let many obstacles
befall you because of me Only then will the taste buds
of our enmity enjoy the flavor Soldiers of Devagiri sneaked
into our kingdom yesterday How do we know Mahadeva
won’t attack our fort tomorrow? Orugallu that stands
without protection… …even God cannot save! True, even God cannot save
our land that lacks protection King Ganapati Deva,
my father’s wonderful dream… …was to fortify and strengthen
the Kakatiya defenses He wanted to build
7 walls around our fort Let us start to complete
the 7 walls to our fort now You are a fine example to… …’the son who excels
his father’ Rudradeva Armor for the warrior
Fortified walls for the kingdom Your deed will be
etched in history This will not find
a place in history Even the King was unable to finish
building the walls of our fort Wonder why our prince is hasty
or what spurns his anger? Is all this even possible, Your Highness? When ambition is strength
and hard work is in each breath… …’impossible’ does not even exist Walls made of stone, bamboo,
sand, brick, thorn… …shell lime and sand plaster Finish building these 7 walls
with determination and immediate effect Your wish is our command To raise funds to
build the 7 walls… …there are 2 special features
in this festive event Whoever scales up
this bronze pillar… …that represents the magnificence
of our Kakatiya dynasty …will be awarded the title,
‘Brave-heart, bravest of the brave’ The second feature Gona Varada Reddy,
son of Lakkumaiyah Reddy… …and Anamika Devi, daughter of
Kota Reddy of Adavoni …will be united in matrimony
graced by His Majesty Not just 2 hearts 2 kingdoms will merge
to become invincible We offer our wedding gifts
as a royal fund Bravo! Lakkumaiyah Reddy! Instead of contributing
from your treasury… …you burden the people God’s will for the good of all Let the contest for
the Brave-heart begin I wish the same too First is the contest Only then the wedding After the wedding,
we get the real gold Fake gold for the treasury Son Varada, even if you eat mud
this title is only for you Let the contest begin I am your husband
No matter what! (holy chant) Is there no brave man in the entire
Kakatiya kingdom to scale this pillar? Bravest of the brave
in Kakatiya land Praise be to the bravest of
the brave in Kakatiya land Amazing Warrior, your feat is unparalleled Who may you be? State your name
and your origin And claim your award Not answering is equal to
disrespecting the King We give you another
chance as you are the winner Answer!
Who are you? Gona Ganna Reddy Gona Ganna Reddy (cheering) Gona Ganna Reddy ‘Long live Gona Ganna Reddy’ (cheering continues) ‘The way you swirl your sword…’ ‘…looks like you will be my only rival
in this kingdom, Ganna Reddy’ ‘Gona Ganna Reddy!’ Like his father and my brother
Gona Buddha Reddy… …I thought Gona Ganna Reddy would
be an ally of the Kakatiyas But he is getting ready
to oppose us He changes into a robber and grabs
the riches and lives of minor chieftains Gona Ganna Reddy Yes, indeed Gona Ganna Reddy Looks like many amongst you
know about me Many who have seen me
face to face are no longer alive Long Live Brave-heart! Be quiet Getting on this pillar,
scratching your back Stamping mud Do you call this a challenge? Amulet on my hip thread! Can’t a person who milks a tiger
be capable of milking a cow? Tell us straight to our face Why did you come here? I will tell you He stabbed my uncle in the back
and killed my father I let him live The king who was
supposed to protect… …failed in his duties I ignored that as well They branded me as a robber
because I fought for the poor I let that go as well too If injustice happens to me,
I will not shed a tear But if I see it happen
in front of me… …I will not turn a blind eye A girl is being coerced into marrying
the prince in front of the king? It will not happen Gona Ganna Reddy! What is it, Varada? My wicked cousin Like a jasmine stuck to
the mouth of a lizard… …why do you want this wedding? Why do you keep
falling from this pillar? Amulet on my hip thread! If you are half baked
in everything like this… …you cannot even father a cat You half baked warrior! A half baked warrior
is still a warrior! My son-in-law went half way up
That is enough for me He’ll please his wife
also only halfway Is that enough too? Prince, Gona Ganna Reddy
has eyes for my daughter He has come here
to abduct her now Not only is he eyeing Anamika
but the Kakatiya throne too Shut up, Hari Hara Deva Eligibility for a king
is not just having an heir But to be a brave warrior Has no one ever told you
the throne is for the courageous! – Ganna Reddy!
– Gona Ganna Reddy!! Yes, of course Robber, Ganna Reddy Opposing the king
is an unpardonable crime Why would you not say so? How would you know the difference
between right and wrong? For you to step out of the fortress,
an elephant must get mad and trumpet! Every chieftain here
is a mad elephant They trample the people Even if you let these
mad elephants be… …I refuse to do so – What arrogance!
– Forgive me My body is full of arrogance Are you playing with words? I am a hunter
who knows how to play The hunt is ours Prasad Aditya! Soldiers
Surround him We will protect our brother My lovely little lion cubs You threaten these people
with your tiny catapults! Bravo! We won’t show any concession
for them as children, move back I admire your
true love and concern My dear cubs, I will manage Run along We are retreating only because
our brother says so! We will even give up
our lives for our brother Gona Ganna Reddy I am not interested
in this wedding as you said But Varada Reddy
is a half baked warrior He won’t let you
take me away If you are brave,
then defeat him Then I will come with you
of my own accord Your wish is my command, prince Today is my wedding day
and his last day on earth Both by my hand only I have been waiting
to kill him for so long Anamika, get ready to leave Shut up Brave men, encircle Ganna Reddy! We couldn’t do anything
when he was standing right here How do we run after him? You must save
my son somehow The only brave and fearless man
who can oppose Gona Ganna Reddy… …is my dear friend
Chalukya Veerabhadra Where is your leader,
robber, Gona Ganna Reddy? This life has been dedicated to
Gona Ganna Reddy I will not tell Kill me You killed the chieftains Gona Ganna Reddy,
you are not a human being You are a savage beast But you will not escape
from my clutches I must kill
Gona Ganna Reddy In order to kill him
first you must be alive Ganna Reddy! I am going back
to save Varada Reddy Do not assume
the hunt is over It has only just begun Without discerning the gender… …we can be carefree and
get intoxicated with ambrosia This Kaumudi festival is ours We can unlock the secret desires
from the chambers of our heart Gona Ganna Reddy is
extremely handsome Bravest of brave warrior He came to save me But most unnecessarily… …he carried away Varada Reddy In the dreams of our enemies
Rudradeva is like a roaring lion In the youthful dreams of girls alone
he is the God of love To marry the prince… …is the dream of all the princesses
of the neighboring lands Of course Wonder how many will compete Wonder how many wars will be waged! Victory or heavenly abode?! We should wage a war for him ‘This Kaumudi festival is
not to indulge in idle chat’ ‘To let all our secret wishes
embedded in our hearts to fly free’ ‘If we miss this opportunity…’ ‘…this happiness cannot be
experienced for another year’ “Like a moon in full bloom I blossom” “Like a dove I fly over the moon gladsome” “My steps no longer hesitant
I emerge from my veil’s confinement” “This is the right time I realize
Happiness beckons without ties” “With thoughts, honeyed flavor
in a heart brimming with nectar” “Like a moon in full bloom I blossom” “Like a dove I fly over the moon lithesome” Who is this enchanting enchantress? She gives a new meaning to beauty “On earth a dulcet display
fresh raindrops play” “Waves that sing a melody
touch the sky in rhapsody” “Where are the ragas nine
strummed by silence divine?” “Where is the invitation
of the soul in anticipation?” “Rivers from the hills murmur a hymn
like the lub-dub from the heart’s atrium” “Breaking barriers blissfully
In a hurry impulsively” “Is this really me?
Bewildered truly” “Like a moon in full bloom I blossom” “Like a dove I fly over the moon gladsome” “Like a moon in full bloom I blossom” “Like a dove I fly over the moon blithesome” ‘There is no other girl
as beautiful on this earth’ ‘My dear friend…!’ Such a beautiful girl
cannot exist on earth Friend? It is true This statue has life
and is bathing in the river Urvasi’s thighs Menaka’s graceful curves The beautiful breasts of Rati,
the consort of God of love Lips as red as the lotus The hips of Rambha
the celestial nymph Tilotamma’s divine face Who are you? Which ‘swayamvara’ should
I win to make you my wife? Which kingdom should I capture? Oh! It is customary to
first introduce myself I am Chalukya Veerabhadra I hail from Nidavartyapuram For further details… …shall I ask your prince Rudradeva
to speak on my behalf? Are you in such a hurry? I will ask the same Kakatiya prince… …to snip the tail of temerity
of youngsters like you Jaganmohini the enchantress Wherever you may hide… …you cannot escape me, Nagadeva Friend, are you meditating? Or day-dreaming That’s what I don’t know Did Gona Ganna Reddy escape
even though you caught him? If we stop looking for our enemies
they will come in search of us But a lady love is not the same If she vanishes like a flash
of lightning, where do I search? Lady love? Where did you see her? Last night at the Kaumudi festival She flashed bright like lightning She struck my heart
and conquered it Don’t you believe me? I should have taken you
with me last night too You would have also
fallen in love with her Then we would have both
fought a duel for real Friends you and me
would have turned into enemies Then I should see her No, she is like your sister-in-law You can see her
at the wedding That’s not our priority now Just because he spared
Varada Reddy’s life… …don’t underestimate
Gona Ganna Reddy Gona Ganna Reddy
is an eagle in the sky Crocodile in the pond Even if he is as slippery as an eel… …I’ll definitely capture him Then till you capture Ganna Reddy… …you cannot leave this kingdom I won’t go
even if you ask me to Even if I am exiled
I won’t move Not till I get
Gona Ganna Reddy Till I make my beautiful
lady love say ‘yes’ to me We thought King Ganapati Deva needed
7 births to build 7 walls of the forts But in just 7 months… …2nd wall has been built
and the 3rd is also ready Your Majesty! Wherever they are digging
to build the walls of the fort… …they are unearthing treasures ‘With the help of
underground treasures…’ ‘…the half-finished walls
of our fort will be completed’ ‘As an avatar of Goddess Shakti…’ ‘…this kingdom will be
saved only by that baby girl’ If underground treasures
being unearthed is true… …maybe the prophesy of a girl baby
for the king can also be true Who was the enchantress Nagadeva
saw with a stamp of royalty? Why is Rudradeva still unmarried? Along with questions danger also arose Our prince to be married? Why not? Has Rudradeva decided to
be a bachelor like Bheeshma? Or like Shikandi is he not eligible? This is not my question Our people are indulging
in such idle gossip To stop these rumors… …this is the best opportunity This is our opinion You have proved yourselves
to be partners My mind is enthralled with
your care and concern for royalty Prince Rudradeva’s wedding
has been finalized long ago Our prince will marry Muktamba
the daughter of Jayabasena This alliance has already been
fixed for mid-January As well-meaning
relatives of the king… …you should grace the occasion
and conduct the wedding Like a barren woman
blessing a pregnant lady… …should they oversee the wedding? Has the prince
not arrived yet? You are royally ignoring
the ones who are present And worried about the absentees Why do I even talk to you? Is the gold plaque ready
for the list of dowry items? 25,000 horses
10,000 elephants Only 100,000 cows? Is this all the dowry Jayabasena
is giving his son-in-law? Here comes Prince Rudradeva She thinks an engagement
is for eating fruits and snacks And display various gifts Secret tunnel to
the ladies chambers The Kaumudi festival where
the enchantress appeared… …and this royal family are
linked in some special way – Uncle, I found it
– Found what? An underground passage
to the zenana in the palace Really?
Where, Nagadeva? Where is that tunnel? Uncle, how eager you are I won’t tell you You’ll call me Chanakya
until I finish the job Then you’ll call me an egghead! Okay, you don’t have
to tell us the way But listen to me Go through that tunnel If you see the enchantress,
enjoy her as much as you please Kill Rudradeva before
he gets to the wedding hall We are the ones
organizing the wedding The entire marriage hall
is surrounded by our men Rudradeva is in your hands
in the palace quarters The wedding hall is in my hands, The entire royal family will be
wiped out including Ganapati Deva I am now the emperor
of the Kakatiya kingdom Hari Hara Deva Princess, you’re in such a rush? If I come early,
you say I rush If I come late… …you say women take
all day and night to get ready True Delay in getting dressed
is not because of the women Men are to be blamed Your friend himself
hasn’t arrived as yet Then? If one must sit majestically
next to a beauty like me… …even a great prince must take
extra care in getting dressed My guess was right My enchantress is here First I must send
the prince to hell And then taste
a slice of Heaven Prince, here I come So you are a girl? How well you have
fooled everyone You have enacted this play for 25 years
because women have no right to rule? If I kill you now
this secret will die with you But if the secret is
brought out in the open… …the entire Kakatiya
kingdom will be ruined Prince Rudradeva
is not in the palace Chalukya Veerabhadra
some danger has befallen him Close all exits and entrances Soldiers, send word
to Prasad Aditya Respected priest…? If the auspicious time passes by
tie the sacred thread to this sword This marriage must happen
the way it was intended Look! My brother is coming What happened, friend? Nothing to worry I came by another way He has a long life-line He escaped from
the clutches of Nagadeva (Holy chant) Don’t lose heart, brother The newly married couple
will go to the royal arena …to get the blessings
of the elders The obstacles we have created
in the name of Gona Ganna Reddy… …will be Rudradeva’s death knell Long live
Prince Rudradeva! For your wedding,
the bandit Gona Ganna Reddy… …has sent this toy elephant as a gift The target is ours Blame is on Gona Ganna Reddy The royal family will be totally
destroyed thanks to him Long Live
Brave-heart! Brave-heart…may victory be yours Long live
Gona Ganna Reddy You thought I would be far away
and not come here? I am like my mother tongue Telugu I’ll be there And here I would be the last person
on earth to hide and fight Swear on the amulet
in my hip-thread! It is not in my blood
to be a coward My war is with Rudradeva And only face to face An auspicious event
is happening here With only the scent
of sandalwood Not blood splashed everywhere That’s why I am sparing you Go If you use my name
in any wrong manner… …I’ll garland the fortress walls
with your hearts and livers Chalukya, if the crime
must be exposed… …don’t let Gona Ganna Reddy
cross the fortress walls Go…go With God as my witness …manifested as all the incarnates
of God Shiva and Goddess Shakti …let me tell you now
Rudradeva, put this on record The sword I have sharpened
will fly in mid-air and target only you ‘It became evident to everyone
that danger lurked for prince Rudradeva…’ ‘…and the Kakatiya throne
in the form of Gona Ganna Reddy’ ‘The sword I have sharpened
will fly in mid-air and target only you’ ‘In order to catch
that murderer-‘ ‘Chalukya Veerabhadra
left no stone unturned’ Come out if you
have the courage ‘This was a clever ruse to dupe
the Devagiri spies by Shiva Devaiah’ ‘The entire land’s sugarcane yield
was heaped inside the fort…’ ‘…to make the enemies believe
the might of the Kakatiya elephantry’ ‘Enormous piles of leaves serving
as plates were strewn outside the fort…’ ‘…to give the impression
of a strong army’ ‘Falling for this ploy,
the king of Devagiri…’ ‘…instead of direct combat’ ‘…looked for ways
of deceptive combat Hari Hara Murari Deva brothers I revoke your powers till I know
your part in the Ganna Reddy conspiracy ‘Hari Hara Murari brothers
used a female as decoy’ Madanika, prince Rudradeva
is strong in every aspect But only one weakness- Hidden in the zenana Nagadeva died in his quest
to find out the truth Even if you wanted to
investigate personally… …you lacked the required authority Now you are like
a snake without fangs As the dear friend of Muktamba
I’ll secure a firm hold in the palace And find out the secret Tie the garland there! Oye, decoration expert This is my domain Why are you throwing
your weight around? Sister-in-law, only the groom should enter
the bedroom first for the wedding night Is that a new rule? Or has it been written
in the scriptures? Jaggery from Ahobilam Did you order it specially
because I’m fond of it? Sister-in-law? How can you start eating it
before my brother comes in? When I see something I like
my taste buds get too impatient! Not only you The prince is on his way
unable to wait patiently That’s enough All of you leave You’ve come clad in your armor
even to the bedroom? Instead of tussling with kisses… …does the prince indulge
in fighting with knives? Muktamba Forgive me for appearing like this
on such an auspicious night I have taken a righteous vow
for the welfare of the people Till it is fulfilled
I cannot touch a girl As my wife if you agree
I will continue with my vow If you don’t approve- How can you even ask me? I am born for you Will I ever say no? Until your vow is fulfilled… …I accept this abstinence gladly ‘Even if Rudradeva got
a reprieve on the personal front…’ ‘…he had to face
a danger of a different kind’ ‘He brandished his sword bravely
and entered the battlefield’ ‘Victorious, he occupied
Vengi and Rajamahendravaram’ ‘The Kalinga king Narasimha-I
was overpowered’ ‘Telugu kingdom was saved from being
annexed by the neighboring lands’ ‘This victory was inscribed in the temples
of Draksharama and Bheemeshwaram’ I swear on Godavari river If my people suffer
I will not spare your lives Various silks of different
shining satiny hues Like the colors
of the nine gems Which silk sari would you
like to pick, my lady? I want the silk with which I can
hug the prince like a monitor lizard Oh! All yours at once Only when you drape it
will you know if it will cling or not Give the floral one
to Manchena One with the white lotus to Tittiba This one…give me this Greetings That’s a special silk Warning! Our Royal Highness and
all the womenfolk go inside Make the merchants kneel
with their hands tied at the back To show this is the plight of spies
who intrude into our kingdom… …chisel his back with a knife and
throw him in the Devagiri border ‘To find out the secret of the fort
this secret agent will assist you’ ‘Our spy sacrificed
his life for this cause’ ‘But Madanika will find out
the Kakatiya secret before she dies’ Bravo Madanika! Well done! You’ve proved you are
a true Devagiri spy Like the severed heads
of these enemies… …I will chop Rudradeva’s head The day to parade
his severed head… …is not too far away To oppose Mahadeva… …we must be prepared
in all the ways possible Mahadeva has a mighty army In the event of a war tomorrow
our own army is considerably less We will be forced to depend
on the army of our chieftains Should we rely
on our chieftains? They are waiting with
bated breath for a chance to rule Already Chagis, Haihayas, Cholas
of Nellore and other feudatories… …are announcing
their independence To count on such traitors
as allies is complete foolishness Therefore every eligible man
in our land should enlist And we should form
an army of our own Excellent idea, Rudradeva! Start immediately to
strengthen our armed force I have already entrusted
this responsibility… …to my friend
Chalukya Veerabhadra Why has he not
come to this meeting? More than the army, he is
captivated by some lady’s charm In the midst of art and sculpture
he is intoxicated all the time Without seeing her again… …I don’t know if he can
concentrate on our need “Is it so?
Is that you?” “Are you the treasure
I was looking for?” “I thought to my delight
in my heart asleep is your light” “Is that so?
Is it you?” “Your friendship I thought
was the best gift I got” “But shall I think of it now
as a pleasing pain that will follow?” “Shall I meet you,
my love true?” “Shall I verily
forget the I in me?” “Feelings that accosted
Bound us besotted” “Is it so?
Is that you?” “Are you the treasure
I was searching for?” “But shall I think of our love truly
as heartache that will follow me?” “Why this sudden
feeling of hesitation?” “My foot refused to move somehow
In this playful moment in love” “Don’t waver or change even
This naïve idiot is a mad maiden” “Is it possible
to stop at all?” “The cool breeze’s glory
that I chase gladly” “A lion’s personality gloried
Is it fair to be worried?” “Eyes of the doe like this
in pursuit of bliss” “Is that so?
Is it you?” “Your friendship I thought
was the best gift I got” “But shall I think of it now
as a pleasing pain that will follow?” “Shall I meet you,
my love true?” “Shall I verily
forget the I in me?” “Feelings that accosted
Bound us besotted” “Is it so?
Is that you?” “Are you the treasure
I was searching for?” “But shall I think of our love truly
as heartache that will follow me?” When our love is so intense
I can’t wait anymore Let’s tell Rudradeva
and get married Don’t you have any other goal
besides getting married? What greater goal can one have
other than love at this age? Girls tend to dream a lot of how
they expect their husband to be Tell me what I’ll do it in a split second You can’t do that Why? Is it that difficult? You haven’t fulfilled the duty
the prince entrusted you with This is the talk of the town What other goals do you have
apart from drinking and gallivanting? I’ll fulfill that duty right away! Then I’ll tie the sacred thread around
your neck and bridle for my bride! Be ready to marry me
in mid January If people cut their hair
you tax even the hair! Not only will we tonsure your heads
we will inscribe it for posterity If your king Uppalasoma
treats his subjects callously… …his head will be chopped by
our anna Gona Ganna Reddy Beheader of Uppalasoma
Gona Ganna Reddy Long live! We will return the tax money
grabbed from you by these officials Long live
Gona Ganna Reddy Veerabhadra is heading this way This is not the right time to be
fighting the brave Chalukya warrior Leave now Chase and catch them You don’t have to be
scared of anyone We will capture Gona Ganna Reddy
who steals your money Very soon To oppose such tricksters
and crafty men who scheme… …Prince Rudradeva has
devised a new plan A warrior from every house volunteers… …to form the Rudra-army Young men, volunteer
and enlist in the army Your fear will fragment to bits Sir, to ensure our families
are fed 1 square meal… …just because we grew more paddy …if we are taxed 16 different taxes
do we survive or die? Didn’t our prince abolish all taxes
realizing your suffering? That is only according
to your decree But chieftains squeeze our blood
and extract taxes from us If this atrocity continues… …you won’t have a soldier
from every house Every house will be
represented by a robber… …who will follow
Gona Ganna Reddy Gona Ganna Reddy has not
swindled our treasury alone People’s hearts too If people should believe
in our reign once again… …hereafter …if 1 ‘varaha’ is collected
as tax from our people …they will be liable to punishment,
even if they are chieftains My dear friend
Chalukya Veerabhadra You can start
forming your army If Veerabhadra concentrates
on forming the army… …that robber Gona Ganna Reddy
will target and torture us He has already
killed 12 chieftains… …in the most barbaric manner We are clutching our lives
in the palm of our hands now Each of you here is
a king of a territory Aren’t you ashamed of
letting fear rule you like this? Till that murderer kills you
will you be meditating? Surround Nallamalai jungle
with your armies Go now and search Hunt for him Destroy Gona Ganna Reddy If yes, it is Heaven If not…Lord Yama’s kingdom There are so many other chieftains
who have wronged more than me Egg befits the chicken The punishment
fits the crime Killing him was the right thing to do I’ll go advise everyone The mother-in-law who advised
the daughter-in-law… …had her own fling on the side I didn’t do anything wrong He bundled his sins
in his loin cloth And went to Kasi to
pray for redemption Who, anna? How should I know? I burped the town’s wealth My town…my call! You levied tax in a ruthless way My kingdom…my wish! I’ll give you 4 reasons One, you tortured
the people with punishments Two, you ill-treated children Fourth- Then third? Shut up My calculation
My whim You are caught now
Gona Ganna Reddy I will arrest you
and put you behind bars Awestruck jaw lines drop
watching me in action But to imprison me a man
hasn’t been born as yet I’m not Abhimanyu to get
caught in the ‘Padmavyuha’ I am like Lord Krishna
The father of ‘Chakravyuha’ Will you die? Or will you join me? Long Live Brave-heart
Gona Ganna Reddy ‘Gona Ganna Reddy
accumulated numerous allies’ ‘Kotagiri kings in the west
Muthukur kings in the south’ ‘The Naganoors in the north
to the Kalingas in the east’ ‘He reigned supreme
with his death chapter’ Do you know
who our enemies are? They are not armies
of any enemy What segregates us
is only caste and religion To unify this rift I will personally
perform inter-caste marriages This is not to oppose caste system Unity among our castes
will protect our kingdom ‘Rudradeva who felt his reign and treasury
are solely for the welfare of the people…’ ‘…excelled in doing good deeds
exhausting the space for inscriptions’ ‘He built canals and
artificial reservoirs’ ‘He saved rain water without
a single drop going waste’ ‘There was a surplus of grains’ ‘People were prosperous and happy’ ‘Export of goods flourished on
a grand scale from Mottupali’ ‘Not only the ruler but also
the ruled became rich like Kubera’ ‘This was ensured by Rudradeva’ For this clan For the Kakatiya kingdom To wear the garland of victory Army of Rudradeva! ‘To fight in a war
however huge…’ ‘…Chalukya Veerabhadra
got the army ready’ ‘While everyone was progressing
towards their respective goals…’ ‘…Madanika started unearthing
the secrets of the palace one by one’ ‘She sent news to Devagiri
now and then also’ ‘The 7 walls were fortified so well
to prevent enemies from coming in’ ‘Despite the formidable defense…’ ‘…royal secrets were conveyed by
a carrier pigeon flying across the 7 walls’ This is the correct figure
of the Kakatiya army? Till now canvassing
wrong figures… …Shiva Devaiah deceived us deliberately This news is enough
for Mahadeva to raze… …the 7 walls of the fort to the ground Rudradeva! Your fort will be mine And also the Kakatiya crown! I fulfilled my promise The girl who asked for it…? It’s almost the end of January You neighed just like this
when she came here last Friend…you’ve come alone Where are your guards? Everyone says you’ve fallen
in love and become a lunatic I came alone to find out
how true the rumor is You are happily married to
Muktamba, my dear friend But I am all alone in solitude You’ve come
at the right time My beloved will come now You must get her family to consent
and conduct our wedding If I should do that,
you must win a challenge Even though you are
head over heels in love… …prove you haven’t forgotten
to cross swords The loser must heed
the winner’s words I’ll win my love’s hand
by defeating you Rudradeva, look at Muktamba once If she continues this vow,
the doctor says it may kill her (holy chant) Wearing this armor
is a weary load I have to remove it Will you help me? Even the plants here
will have eyes If you remove it, won’t your
life’s secret be known to all? That means… …you know my secret? How? When? On the day of the engagement Won’t a girl recognize
another girl’s first touch? You knew before the wedding? And still- Why did you bow your head
and marry me? For you to walk with
your head held high I let you tie this
protection thread I don’t think of this
as a big sacrifice You are epitome of sacrifice You don’t bear the weight
of your armor alone But the burden of this kingdom I did not save only you But millions of people too You have understood
my plight so well I bow my head
to your good heart From this moment,
I accept you as my daughter I’ll also get you married
so that your life is not ruined An ideal match from
the Chalukya clan… …will be your perfect spouse My wedding is not priority When do you intend marrying
Chalukya Veerabhadra? This birth is for my people My next birth is for you Poignant philosophical lines Touch your heart and tell me
you don’t love me Why do you betray yourself
by not having the guts to answer? More than your life and
your personal desires… …more than our friendship and our love
when the people matter more to you …I can’t bury my love within me
and still stay with you Goodbye I am not destined to
be married in this life I will remain
as Rudradeva always For the people of Kakatiya,
you sacrifice your comforts To meet face to face
such a noble woman And to serve her I am indeed blessed Don’t worry about me Focus on your duty The man who ensures the people
of Kakatiya hear and sleep soundly The man whose name makes
men like you wake up quaking in fear That man
Rudradeva… …is not a male But a female Rudramadevi! 25 years We’ve been taken for
a royal ride for 25 years! Ganapathi Deva! Just watch how we expose
this tremendous secret For divulging such
earth shattering news… …how do I, Madanika,
get rewarded? Will you leave me with just
this gold jewelry I am wearing? We knew you were the spy
of Mahadeva rather belatedly You must lean only to one side
even if you’re a spy and courtesan If you play a double game
this will be your fate! This revelation is our most potent
weapon like the one created by Brahma Shiva Devaiah! They have probably come
to pay their respects in person They are kith and kin after all King Ganapati Deva is about to proclaim
a revelation of vital importance Proclaim? What? Do you intend building
another new temple? Fix doors to the fort walls? Be silent and listen to the king – Sure
– So be it My dear subjects
and chieftains Crowned as prince by me And while seated in my assembly… …he spread the glory of
Kakatiya reign in all 8 directions I hereby announce the coronation
of Prince Rudradeva as king Long Live, future king of
Kakatiya kingdom, Rudradeva! Long live! Long live! What did I just hear you say? Crowning ceremony for Rudradeva? The prince will become the king? Is that all or is there more? Conform to the norms of
respecting the assembly We will announce
what we intended to say Resppppect! Show yours first Then there is plenty of respect
we have to show in return The person you thought
was Prince Rudradeva… …is not a male But a female Yes…by birth a girl Rudramadevi We announced a girl baby
to be a boy… …for the welfare of the people For our country’s protection For the Kakatiya reign
to prosper in the future Rudramadevi was raised
as prince Rudradeva He regarded you
as his own children Rudramadevi who made
Kakatiya period a golden one… …on the full moon day in November …we will express our gratitude
by crowning her as queen With this, the court is dismissed What was dismissed is not court But their royal bloodline Rudradeva ‘Shiva Devaiah realized
the secret was exposed’ ‘So he himself divulged the secret’ ‘And played a shrewd political game’ The wishes accumulated
for 25 long years… …you foiled in just
1 second, Shiva Devaiah Don’t think this is over Cleaning the house spic and span
does not conform a festival A proclamation does not
constitute a coronation We will show you
our skill and expertise “In the zenana, parakeet pretty
why so suspicious, my beauty?” “Who can ever hinder
when the sky you wish to conquer?” “To touch the stars in the sky
I robed myself in wings to fly” “Come quickly
Independently” “Don’t spend your time however
in the palace of mirrors hereafter” “Waiting for you over there” “A stage adorned with care” “A garden of flowers
With rainbow colors” “Come here please
So said the scented breeze” “In the zenana, parakeet pretty” “In the ladies’ chamber, parrot pretty” “In the still of the night deep” “Elusive sleep” “Come out, Sashikala” “Why this purdah?” “Quiet mischief in the water” “Let’s submerge in love and laughter” “We have to tiptoe softly
past many a sentry” “Don’t stand there soundlessly” “With the wind’s speed
On all sides we should precede” “Who tried to block
dreams that unlock?” “Who holds on to
thoughts that flow?” “Who can tie us
and silence our chorus?” “In the zenana, parakeet pretty” “In the ladies’ chamber, parrot pretty” Don’t force a girl
on us as our Queen We don’t want! We don’t want
a lady to be our ruler We object to a lady-ruler We object strongly Very well said indeed For a woman to be seated… …this is only the right place Hey Ambadeva! How dare you humiliate my own
daughter in front of my eyes? I will- Why trouble yourself, my king? One command from you I will chop his head
and bring it to your feet Prasad Aditya Cut our heads too along
with Ambadeva’s head then! It’s better to die than
to live under a female’s reign Because a woman didn’t know
the place she should be in… …don’t we know how many
wars were initiated? Like the war between
Lord Rama and Ravana… …and the Kurukshetra war …who was the reason? A female, right? Thanks to the king’s minister Nagamma
Palnadu was reduced to a graveyard This land must not face
such a predicament again No…no
We oppose We don’t want a woman in power! We don’t want We object stron- People of our Kakatiya kingdom Stay calm
Silence! Without the strength of
His consort Shakti… …fearing He would
lose His mighty power …even Lord Shiva shared
half His body to Goddess Shakti To a woman who is considered
one half of Lord Shiva… …what is wrong in
giving our throne? Why? In what way is
a woman inferior? Not Sita, but Ravana was
the cause for the war against Lanka It was the Kauravas and not Draupadi
who initiated the Kurukshetra war Every man who disrespects a woman Whoever he may be He lays the path
to his own destruction! Don’t seal our lips with
anecdotes from the past Even if we brush
old stories aside… …can history be changed, Uppalasoma? Prefixed his mother’s name Gautami The ruler of Amaravathi First Telugu emperor Have you forgotten Satakarni
of the Satavahana dynasty? Why? Even after looking at
Rudramadevi’s golden rule… …don’t you have faith? She abolished taxes With foresight she built
lakes for agriculture She distributed the rewards
reaped from the land to one and all She built maternity hospitals
specially for women All creature comforts Prosperity and peace in plenty She ensured you had
access to all of this This is tomorrow’s history Chronicles for the future Vikramarka period Salivahana period People will acclaim and pay tribute
to Rudramadevi’s reign! Hari Hara Deva, Murari Deva
and Ambadeva After 1000 years if history records
your name and mine in its annals… …remember the sole credit
goes only to this lady My dear subjects We are striving to start
a new chapter in History Until yesterday… …you cheered for
Prince Rudradeva Why? For what? Today why are you
opposing Rudramadevi? Only because she is a girl As soon as they knew
a woman is ruling our land… …they robbed our houses
and set our fields ablaze We women are scared
to even step out Religious shelters are being
targeted all over the kingdom Many religious leaders
are being killed Of course (multiple voices in assent) It is the conspiracy of a few minds If that is so, why didn’t it happen
when Rudradeva was our prince? Because men symbolize fear And women are inferior For 25 years you hid the truth
because of this same fear? Despite our unstinted support
to your reign all these years… …we have lost faith
in the Kakatiya rule We will ourselves rule over
our territories independently Our Kamma kingdom is
independent from today Muriki land will not pay taxes
to Kakatiya kingdom from now on Our Baga land is
also independent If we cheer a woman ruler… …what happens to the prestige
of our Renadu region? Let us split!
Let us split! (multiple voices in dissent) Beloved subjects of my kingdom Chiefs and chieftains I did not come to the throne
as Rudradeva to rule our kingdom I shouldered this responsibility
for the welfare of the people You came to this conclusion to
protect the people of our kingdom Till it gets fulfilled… …I will remain
Rudradeva only You are overlooking
my reforms as Rudradeva You are merely looking at
my female form of Rudramadevi Will not a woman who
transforms her house… …be able to reform her kingdom? I will not ask you
such a question I leave it to each one of you to decide If me being a woman is
the root cause of your problem… If it will give you immense
happiness if I cease to exist… …I do not want this throne If you think being Rudradeva
all these years was a crime… …I will accept whatever
punishment you mete out to me Let the elders introspect
and announce their decision Whatever scriptures
we look into carefully… …befitting punishment for
Rudramadevi’s crime …is death sentence However because she is a lady… …we make exceptions and
exile her from the Kingdom She should renounce
any link to royalty And live as a commoner She must never use any weapons The sentence will be
carried out immediately 25 years ago, the danger we feared
forced us to take this bold decision That danger has now boomeranged
as an earthquake, Your Royal Majesty A mere female? Has a girl been the one
subjugating us all these years? This Kakatiya secret that has
been revealed to the world… …is Mahadeva
aware of it only now? Did Madanika also betray us? Is this how skilled
you are in spying? Offering of blood for
the mighty sword is done This war against
the Kakatiya kingdom… …should make the Kurukshetra war
pale into insignificance It should exceed the piles of dead bodies
from Ashoka’s Kalinga War My dear brave warriors! Beat our war drums You’ve come to
the right temple Everyone’s mother
is Goddess Ellaiamma This brave Goddess Poor soul! She sacrificed her head
to her own son Parasurama You are the same You have forsaken everything
for the welfare of your people Queen of Orugallu You’ve now laid your head
on the lap of this Goddess Scars are a natural
consequence of war These wounds are not
from your enemies But from your own kith and kin Come, let’s go to
Nidavartyapuram I’ll place a throne in my heart
and make you my Queen If that’s what
my father had wanted… …he would have
raised me as a girl My parents raised me this way
for the welfare of my people I need to fulfill
my father’s desire The lives of my people
should blossom anew Even if the enemies cross swords
you want to shower flowers on them? Don’t you want
a life of your own? Don’t you love yourself? You are here
in my life to love me That’s enough But Rudramadevi
and Kakatiya kingdom… …cannot be separated by anyone Your speech gives me goose bumps Brilliant! Like a woman behind
every victorious warrior… …I will be behind your bravery Tell me what I should do With my army, shall I wage
war against Hari Hara and Murari? My father is still on the throne Don’t forget that There is a greater danger
than these internal thieves Stop the king of Devagiri
who is attacking us with his army Go up straight west and
stop him in his tracks Fight so that he does
not cross our boundary You will hear news
of his death soon Your Majesty! More than
the enemies of Devagiri… …we have to escape from
the schemes of your kith and kin Your game is over, old man! We have found out the tunnel
inside the palace itself That will be the victorious way
for the army of Mahadeva Have you joined hands
with the enemy? We even chop heads
for the sake of the throne What does it matter
if you join hands… …or fall at others’ feet? Shiva Devaiah! Our first enemy
is your intellect I will- His heart gave out before
my sword could be troubled Throw his corpse to feed
the crocodiles in the moat This Kakatiya kingdom
to the winner ‘The chieftains who were avaricious
to occupy the throne…’ ‘…fought between themselves’ ‘On the other hand…’ ‘…the problem still loomed large
in the form of Gona Ganna Reddy’ ‘The kingdom was steeped
in chaos and turmoil’ ‘Blood of the innocent
flowed like a river’ ‘People who shunned Rudramadevi…’ ‘…were oblivious of the fact she would
protect them like their mother’ ‘Shiva Devaiah who held his breath
under water opened his eyes’ ‘He was enlightened by these events’ (voices in despair and uproar) “The kingdom is in dire straits” “Caught in anarchy, look what awaits” “Knives sharpened
won’t lighten the burden” “Need of the hour you see
motherliness and mercy” “Rise and flow
for others to follow” “Act promptly, react aptly
Our beloved Rudramadevi” “For our own sake
your detached state forsake” “Did not even Lord Shiva wander
in the grave yard without His mother?” “Life you resurrected when necessary
as Lord Shiva’s mother even in the cemetery” “With your love and support, unafraid
Goddess Rudramma, come to our aid” We don’t want chieftains
who crave for power We want Rudramadevi who supports
her people to be our Queen Rudrama, you are our savior Take this weapon! Victory to Queen Rudramadevi! Rani Rudramadevi
may you be victorious May you taste victory
Queen Rudramadevi King, Shiva Devaiah is alive Rudramadevi like Goddess Kali
is all set to wage a war against us People are supporting her I’ll meet you later
if you are alive If she wields a weapon… …Rudramadevi can kill 1000s
with just one stroke How do we stop her? Only soul who can stop
Rudramadevi is Mahadeva Open the underground passage ‘Praise be to Goddess Shakthi’ ‘Long live
Destroyer of evil’ I underestimated
the 7 walls of the fort Stones rain upon us when
the 1st stone-wall was broken When the bamboo wall was crossed
waves of fire blaze round us What a spectacular wonder this is! What does the 5th wall
have in store I wonder? Don’t fret, brother This is an iron wall We are here Just wait and watch
how Rudramadevi’s game ends Well done, brother You rightly said our enmity
is equal to that of the snakes Though just a girl, she has
taken the form of a mongoose The way she twirls her sword
it may even reach our throats Who will finish
Rudrama’s game? Look who is here to quell
Rudramadevi’s bravery! Gona Ganna Reddy is here! Kakatiya war has
reached its climax We have all become friends Now whom can we
join hands with? We are not here to join hands
with anyone, Uppalasoma! With great pleasure we are here
to watch everyone die Rudramadevi is in the clutches
of Gona Ganna Reddy Gona Ganna Reddy
in the clutches of Mahadeva As soon as Hari Hara and
Murari Deva kill Mahadeva… …we shall aim our sword
at whoever is remaining In war, it doesn’t matter
who is the bravest warrior The one who wields
the final blow is the victor He is a warrior of acclaim He has positioned his army… …in the eagle formation
to thwart his foes Like an eagle can
tear a snake apart… …Gona Ganna Reddy
will kill Rudramadevi Long Live Gona Ganna Reddy! Long Live Queen Rudramadevi! As long as there is
breath within me… …I will not let even the shadow of Yama,
the Lord of death touch Rudramadevi Like Virabhadhra is the guardian
to the Goddess Kali of Orugallu… …Gona Ganna Reddy has become
Rudramadevi’s protector If Ganna Reddy and
Rudramadevi see us- We should raise
the white flag of truce Why are your knees trembling? To murder or dethrone Rudramadevi… …Gona Ganna Reddy is not a puppet! I am the Kakatiya people’s asset I killed every corrupt official and
chieftain in this kingdom ruthlessly I stopped Anamika’s wedding
so you don’t join hands to gain power I robbed your treasury… …to prevent you from forming
an independent army of your own I returned all that wealth as pots
of money to build the 7 walls For Rudramadevi’s army
to be strong and mighty… …I motivated every
youngster to become …not a robber like me,
but a brave warrior I was the 1st person to know
Rudramadevi’s life-secret I was also the one to slit Nagadeva’s
throat when he found out the secret I foiled your sinister plans of
destroying Rudramadevi’s family And I saved this kingdom Branding me as a robber
is not your dishonesty mask Responsibility offered by
Rudramadevi as a royalty mark You deceived us
with your masquerade – Betrayal
– Treason The enemy cautions us
how to plan a war He also decides
which weapon to use To your crimes and schemes
this itself is the right verdict The diamond shield that guards
the dignity of the Kakatiya kingdom… …is Gona Ganna Reddy Hey! Ganna Reddy You escaped my
clutches too many times My father slaughtered
your father like a dog I will kill you today and
make your Anamika mine! And Rudramadevi too- Shut up! I wanted Rudramadevi
to have the honor of killing you That is why till now
I spared your lives Rudrama! Their story is
in your hands The auspicious time of death
is not marked for us but for you Rudrama! Let us fight! Rudramadevi! Mahadeva is the most
monstrous demon You could have
killed him yourself Devagiri Mahadeva is the foremost
enemy of the Kakatiya kingdom If I killed him
it is not a big deal The Kakatiya people who dreamt
a male royal heir will protect them… …their expectations should
be met by a woman In no way is a woman
any less brave This is the time for
people to realize it So Rudrama must kill him This must become history My father must not
see your corpse But your defeat Beat the drums of victory (holy chant) ‘Of your own accord you ended
your life as Rudradeva’ ‘Now I will end your life
as Rudramadevi’ Kill Mahadeva Bury him alive Don’t spare his life (voices in dissent) A war is between
the armies of 2 lands 2 kings should combat But not between
the subjects of 2 kingdoms Minister! Without thinking twice,
cut him into pieces Stop, Veerabhadra Even if the enmity is
Ganapati Deva’s… …only Rudramadevi
must put an end to it Who is your enmity directed at? On our own motherland? If we keep fighting internally
what will be the fate of our kingdom? Foreigners from Alexander to
Ghazni have tried to rule us They plundered our wealth In the end we became slaves to
a slave king Qutubudin Aibak We were divided and ruled How long will we
continue like this? Did we not learn
from our mistakes? Mahadeva If those who drank the same
mother’s milk can bond as brothers… …drinking water from the same river
can’t we live as brothers and sisters! Our duty as ruler is to ensure
our subjects are happy Forgive me, Your Majesty All these years claiming
to forgive my father …you disrespected us
in the most arrogant way Today in front of everyone… …I forgive you Long Live, queen Rudramadevi Mahadeva, you were
in such a frenzy to murder You stand here today
like a beggar asking for alms How strange is your fate Amulet on my hip thread! Instead of dissecting you to pieces… …forgiving you is
a bigger punishment Rudrama, I’ll be with the people Always I will protect them You sacrificed the throne to be
a friend of the people in all ways Long live Ganna Reddy! Gona Ganna Reddy! My dear Anamika This is not the right time- Keep quiet Come on Amulet on my hip thread! Long Live queen Rudramadevi! ‘In nature’s law, difference
in the gender is only in the uterus’ ‘But a stupendous victory
without discrimination…’ ‘…can be achieved by
a man or woman in history’ ‘Will-power and
diligence will do’ ‘We learnt this from
Marco Polo’s accounts’ Reason you lost
in the previous war… …is not because
you didn’t have a male heir You did not raise your daughter
as the heir to the throne India has shown
a new path to Italy Let’s follow footprints in time
of the Kakatiya kingdom My daughter is my heir Paper is not the most wonderful
invention of China, Marco Polo The success story
of Rudramadevi… …that you wrote on it
is even more of a wonder ‘Long live queen Rudramadevi!’ ‘Queen Rudramadevi’s journey of
triumph did not end with this’ ‘Continuing the progeny and her bravery
was heir apparent Prataparudra’ ‘Rudramadevi’s brave footprints etched in
the annals of history will be eternal’ “Goddess Ekaveeradevi born
disguised as a man” “Goddess Kakatamma
created this brave human” “That soul of Arundati
is reborn as Rudhramadevi” “Incarnate of Shakti
dances in this land joyfully” “Like the golden Linga
graced by Lord Shiva” “Fused with Parasurama’s fury
incarnate of Vishnu’s glory” “Witness Goddess Badhrakali’s coronation scene
as Rudramamba the most valiant queen” “Even an elephant demented
will be under you spell, my friend” “Even your enemies enraptured by you
will salute you in reverence true” “Telugu’s beacon of true light” “Sliver of lightning always bright” “Your fame has no boundary
A beacon of light exemplary” “Like a mother tends to her child
you are our leader unrivalled” “Emperor unequalled in name and fame
With sky-reaching cheers we acclaim” “Even an elephant demented
will be under you spell, my friend” “Even your enemies enraptured by you
will salute you in reverence true”
