The story is based on the Indian historical event during 16th century. It narrates the victory of Viswanatha Nayak on his father to express his Rajabhakti towards Srikrishnadevaraya.
Viswanatha Nayak (Krishna) is the son of Nagama Nayak (Shivaji Ganesan), a successful general of Krishnadevaraya (Krishnam Raju) of the Vijayanagara empire. Chola ruler Veerasekara Chola invades the Madurai kingdom and deposed the Pandya king Chandrasekara Pandyan who was under the protection of Krishnadevaraya. Due to this, an enraged Raya sends Nagama Nayak to aid Pandyan king. Nagama suppresses the Chola ruler and takes Madurai, but then suddenly he threw off his allegiance and declining to help the Pandya king, usurped the throne.
So, Viswanatha volunteers to face his dad in the battle ground. Nagama is defeated and the loyalty of Viswanatha is proven. Chivalry of both father and son is admired by Raya who makes Viswanatha the governor of Madurai and other regions of Tamil Nadu.
