The debut production of Pendharkar’s Arun Pics is also the first of his major Maratha historicals focusing on Shivaji (cf. Thoratanchi Kamala, 1941
; Chhatrapati Shivaji, 1952
). The villainous Subedar of Kalyan, in his effort to defeat 17th-C. Maratha emperor Shivaji, abducts a Maratha damsel (Pawar). However, Shivaji and his trusted lieutenant, the equally legendary Netaji Palkar, overcome this threat.
