Folk mythological-biopic of Sanskrit poet and dramatist Kalidasa. The illiterate but wise shepherd (Kannada superstar Rajkumar) is made to dress up as a prince by a wicked minister (Balkrishna) who wants to get even with the King for having rejected his son as a match for the Princess. The Princess (Jayapradha) marries the impostor, but when she discovers the truth, she prays to Kali to grant her husband the gift of learning. The wish is granted but the shepherd, now Kalidasa, loses his memory and ends up as an admired and envied poet in the court of Bhojaratna. The Princess follows him there and the two are reunited after much intrigue.
