King Krishnadevraya sends his trusted lieutenant, Nagama Nayak, to help the Pandya king battle the Chola ruler. Nagama betrays the king and joins the Chola ruler. Now, it is up to his son Viswanatha Nayak to battle his own father and prove his loyalty to the king. Who will be the victor?
Based on historical events during the 16th century in South India, this multi-layered war epic narrates the victory of Viswanatha Nayak over his father to express his devotion towards King Krishnadevraya.
Viswanatha Nayak (Krishna) is the son of Nagama Nayak (Sivaji Ganesan), a successful General of King Krishnadevraya (Krishnam Raju) of the Vijayanagara Empire. Chola King Veerasekhara Chola invades the Madurai Kingdom and deposed the Pandya King Chandrasekhara Pandyan who was under the protection of King Krishnadevraya.
Due to this, an enraged King Krishnadevraya chooses his trusted lieutenant Nagama Nayak to aid Chandrasekhara Pandyan. Nagama Nayak suppresses Veerasekhara Chola and takes Madurai, but then suddenly changes allegiance and declining to help Chandrasekhara Pandyan, goes on to usurp the throne.
So, Viswanatha Nayak volunteers to face his father in the battle ground. Nagama Nayak is defeated and the loyalty of Viswanatha Nayak is proven. Chivalry of both father and son is admired by King Krishnadevraya who makes Viswanatha Nayak the Governor of Madurai and other regions.
