Naag Pooja (1971)
(Certified: Sep 28, 1971)
It was a question of great distress for the King of Vikrampur that who would become the successor of his throne after him. He always prayed to Lord Shiva to be blessed by a son. His prayers were effective and his elder wife Chandravati gave birth to a child. The younger wife couldnt tolerate this and out of jealousy and anger, she managed to throw the infant in the jungles. King of Madhopur, Pratapsingh decided to marry his daughter Kiran with Suraj(who was brought-up by his minister). Accidently, Pratapsingh killed a saint boy while he was getting married, the saint's father cursed the king that his duaghter shall see the similar day and if the king will try to disclose the curse, he shall turn into a statue of stone. The king was sad, and at the time of marriage he was forced to disclose the curse of the saint to his wife and instantaneously he was turned into a statue of stone. Suraj decided to pray to the saint and get the remedy by which king Pratapsingh will get back to his original figure. During the course of getting the Gold-Lotus from Kamrudesh, he met queen Mayawati, who befell for his hadsomeness and charms but Suraj could get the Gold- Lotus with the help of his friend Mohan and made king Pratapsingh allright. The marriage of Suraj and Kiran was performed again. Queen Mayawati couldn't tolerate this and made Suraj crooked and ugly by her magic. Suraj never wanted to fill torments in the life of kiran and one day he decided to leave her. But Kiran also accompany him. Kiran once saved a cobra from fire, Naag Devta was moved by this and gave her a boon that she will soon become mother of a child son and if this child will bring the Neel Mani form mandeshwar caves and touch it to the body of his father Suraj, he would acquire his orginal figure once again. After some time a child son was borned to Kiran, but queen Mayawati couldnt see them happy. She took away the child and threw him down form a cliff.....
