Following up on S. S. Vasan's 1948 mega-hit Chandralekha, this sequel was inspired by Douglas Fairbanks Jr.'s 1941 film The Corsican Brothers. The film opens with the dastardly Zoravar Singh vanquishing a rival kingdom and usurping its throne. A trusted servant spirits away the twin princes Vikram and Vijay who are heirs to the crown. Though raised separately, Vikram grows up in the city while Vijay lives his childhood in a forest, both become obsessed with avenging their father and both fall for the same beautiful lass (Bhanumathi). This film was produced in three different languages-- Tamil, Telugu, and Hindi -- with three different directors credited -- T.G. Raghavachyran, C. Pullaiah and S. S. Vasan respectively.
