Raja Vikram (1957)
(Certified: Oct 22, 1957)
One who drinks nector becomes immortal this dictum may be true or untrue, the fact remains that one who sacrifices for others, surely gets a world wide fame. King Vikram was known for his valour and charitable disposition. His name had spread throughout the length and breadht of the country. . But Mukund a brahmin from Pali village put an allegation on him that his son (Mukunds ) died only because he saw king Vikrams face. King Vikram was struck with wonder and grief. He promised the brahmin that exactly after a month on the full moon-day he will bring nector and make his son alive. . The very day king Vikram leaving all his army behind left for Mayanagari. The king of Mayanagari Jeemutwahan was not only inconvin- cible but also he cherished a desire in his heart to become immortal. He had arranged a sacrificial ceremony for the purpose. Due to enmity he had turned the son of Nagaraj the king of Pataal into a serpent and filled his stomach with fire. King Vikaram decided to snatch away nnature an ambitios girl and held that by effort one can achieve anything. . The younger princess Ratnavali was innocent and liberal minded. She had a firm fith in Fortune. One day both the sisters entered into a hot discussion over the supremacy between Fortune and Industry. The king Chandraketu also sided with the elder princess. But seeing the tough resistence offered by the younger one the king was so much annoyed that he arranged Ratnavalis marriage with a drunkard and a poisonous begger. The begger was none but king Vikram himself. Chandraketus anger was not over as yet, he further went to the extent of throwing the begeer husband of Ratnavali into the sea.
