Melodrama adapting the legend of Nallathanka (aka Nallathangal in Tamil), a pivotal reference in Parasakthi (1952). The king’s sister marries the king of another land and bears him seven children. When drought strikes, she has to appeal to her brother and face the humiliation of an envious sister-in-law. The high point in this melodrama comes when the sister tries to kill herself and all her children by throwing them into a well. The film was a major K&K hit, encouraging Malayalam distributors to give more time to films from their own state.
