Rajashilpi is clearly a re-telling of the legend about lord Shiva. The plot of the story is constructed in a way that the events in the legend repeats itself in a new setting with different characters but with the same spiritual auras of the main persons, especially Siva and Sati. Viewers, who would be anxious to know more about the Uma is disappointed in the initial place because the incidents of Uma’s life with Sambhu is not shown in the film in a form of flashback or something. Instead the first image of Durga is maintained throughout the film which helps the viewers to swallow the idea of Durga as the re-incarnated Uma. It is also interesting to note that only after Durga comes to aware of her re-incarnated life as Uma that she is able to fall in love with Sambhu. In all of the other time her seductive tactics all went vain. The death of Durga’s father is shown very differently in the film. It is as if the Shiva is doing his Thandava, the dance of Siva out of his rage that symbolizes destruction of this universe-life of cause and effect.
