Reddy under the Jayanthi Pictures banner.[1] It stars N. T. Rama Rao, Akkineni Nageswara Rao, B. Saroja Devi in the lead roles and music composed by Pendyala Nageswara Rao.

Plot[edit]

The film begins with Sage Narada (Kanta Rao), who gives the Parijatha flower to Lord Krishna (N. T. Rama Rao), who in turn presents it to his consort Rukmini (Sriranjani Jr.). This annoys Sathyabhama (S. Varalakshmi) and Krishna tries to pacify her. Balarama (Mikkilineni) decides to perform the marriage of Subhadra (B. Saroja Devi) with Duryodhana (Mukkamala) despite objections from his wife, Revathi (Chayadevi). Bowing to Subhadra’s wish, Krishna performs her marriage with Arjuna (Akkineni Nageswara Rao) without Balarama’s knowledge. Meanwhile, the Gandharva king Gaya (Dhulipala), after obtaining from Brahma the boon of eternal fame, is returning to his kingdom in his airplane. Unaware that Krishna is paying obeisance to the Sun God, he spits betel leaf which falls into Krishna’s praying hands. An angry Krishna swears to kill him. Fear-struck, Gaya runs for protection. Narada tells him to seek protection from Arjuna. Without ascertaining facts, Arjuna assures him protection. To keep to his word, Arjuna wages a war with Krishna. In order to the save Earth from disaster, Lord Siva (Prabhakar Reddy) appears and stops their war. Krishna pardons Gaya.
