Synopsis:
The God Vishnu reincarnates himself as Prince Rama, the first son of King Dashrata, to stop King Ravana from continuing his evil reign. Young Prince Rama grows up to be a strong man and by his sotrength he wins the love of Princess Sita. Before King Dashrata is able to bestow the throne to Rama, his second wife, Kaikeyi request that he fulfill the two wishes he granted her in return for having saved his life during the war. Her first wish was to make his son Bharata the crowned king and second, to banish Rama in the forest for fourteen years. To honor his father’s word, Rama consents and goes to the forest with Sita and his brother Laksmana. While Rama was in exile, the ogress, Surpanakha falls in love with him but he denies her. While they drive her away, Laksmana cuts Surpanakha’s nose. Furious of being insulted and hurt, Surpanakha demands her brother, King Ravana, to avenge her. Prince Rama and Prince Laksmana team up with monkey king, Sugriva, and the monkey general, Hanuman. Together with the army of monkeys, Prince Rama and Prince Laksmana face dangers that await then in King Ravana’s kingdom. They saved Princess Sita and return home on the 14th year of their exile. Prince Rama becomes King and leads the kingdom with Queen Sita by his side.
