'My name...'

' Marco Polo'

'Italy is my motherland'

'Approximately for 25 years...'

'...I have travelled through

Persia, China, Burma, India'

'...and Singhalese countries'

'Venice, Italy

13th century A.D'

'After seeing the wonders of Asia...'

'...and buying valuable memorabilia'

'...I reached Italy'

'But Republic of Genova was

in the throes of a terrible war'

'The King and the people were

trembling in fear of losing'

This amazing article...paper!

Discovery of the Chinese

We no longer need to write

on leaves and textiles anymore

In our present predicament...

...we don't need these fancy gifts

Marco Polo

We need an escape plan

Because I don't have a male heir...

...I was compelled to comply

and bow my head to our enemies

You have travelled around the world

You were granted an audience by

Genghis Khan's grandson Kublai Khan

With your worldly knowledge...

...hoping you would help us

with an escape strategy

...we invited you here

Then you must learn more about

the mighty Kakatiya emperor...

...who became the supreme ruler

of the Telugu kingdom

Who is that mighty emperor?


'The Kakatiya reign that spread

fame in all 8 directions...'

' not a kingdom

to be trifled with'

'From Kalinga in the East'

'Karnata in the West'

'Madhyadesa in the North'

'...Kakatiya kingdom extended

till Kanchi in the south'

'With Orugallu as their capital...'

'...the Kakatiyas ruled

providing prosperity and plenty'

Praise be to Goddess Kakatamma

consort of Lord Shiva, destroyer of evil

King Ganapati Deva's wife,

our queen will deliver a royal heir

This news will be announced shortly

If our queen gives birth

to a daughter...

...king of Devagiri's army will

lay siege and enslave us again

'The hell we suffered when they held

King Ganapati Deva captive is enough'

If the same situation arises

we might as well die

We only want a prince to be born!

God Rudralinga

Bless our queen

with a little prince

Guardian deity Ellamma!

Let our queen be

blessed with a baby boy

Guardian deity Ellamma!

Bless us with a little prince

My dear brother

Hari Hara Deva

Look how high the expectations

of the people are

They want our old cousin

to have a son

If it's a daughter...

(scornful laughter) will be a case of

empty expectations!

What you said is absolutely true

King Ganapati Deva is not

destined to have a male heir

Only a girl baby will be born

With the help

of buried treasure... complete building

the 7 walls of the fort an incarnate of Goddess Shakti

...that girl child will save

our entire kingdom


To satiate the desires of men

and to serve their every need...

...Lord Brahma created

this beautiful angel called 'girl'

Not to rule a kingdom

Keep aside the king's horoscope

Check if my master's horoscope

predicts he will ascend the throne

The Kakatiya throne

belongs to us

Find the auspicious date

for our coronation

Murari Deva

Ask the feudal chieftains

who favor us to be prepared

As soon as his daughter is born

if the king renounces his throne... least his life will be spared

Otherwise he will set foot

on his journey to Heaven

Your words echo

my thoughts, brother

My lord, unaware of the fact

you are the local thieves here...

...they are afraid of king Singhana

of Devagiri who is our neighbor

If he lays siege on our land...

...we will be wiped out

Dust to ashes!

'Devagiri kingdom'

To close the chapter of

the Kakatiya dynasty...

...get our troops

ready for action

Sharpen your weapons which will

slash even eye lashes to pieces!
