Bala Nagamma is a 1981 Telugu and Tamil Indian feature film, directed by K. Shankar for A. Khader's K. B. Creations. The film stars Sarath Babu and Sridevi in the lead roles.[1]

Plot[edit]

Queen Punitha (Vennira Aadai Nirmala) prays to the goddess Nagadevi (K. R. Vijaya) to have a child as the kingdom has no heirs. The goddess offers her the choice of having a boy but losing her husband or having a girl and losing her own life. She chooses the latter and soon gives birth to a girl, Bala Nagamma. As she is dying, she asks Nagadevi to watch over her child. The king (S. A. Ashokan) is heart-broken but is convinced to remarry so his daughter can have a mother. He marries Mohana (Manjula) who plots to be rid of Bala Nagamma to secure her own power in the kingdom. She convinces the king that his daughter's horoscope means he will die if Bala Nagamma (Baby Anju) lives. The king is unable to kill his child but abandons her in the forest. Nagadevi takes the child and raises her. As an adult, Bala (Sridevi) meets king Vijayavarma (Sarath Babu) of a neighboring kingdom and the two soon marry. When Bala is pregnant, Vijayavarma leaves to subdue a group of bandits. He asks that Bala not cross the threshold of the palace while he's away. Bala gives birth to a son, Parthiban (Master Babu), while he's away. The evil magician Ranadeeran sees Bala when he asks to see the most beautiful woman in the world. Determined to have her, he tricks Bala into leaving the threshold of the palace and kidnaps her. Vijayavarma is also captured and transformed into a physically weak man when he tries to rescue her. Years pass and it falls to the young Partiban to rescue his parents with the help of Nagadevi.
