Untold story of a Telugu King

By idlebrain | 3 years ago

It’s a known fact that cinemas act as teaching tools for history. We might not learn about history in textbooks, but if it's made as a cinema, it creates a long-standing impact. When I was a kid, if anybody asks me to name a king, my immediate response would be Sri Krishna Devarayalu as I had seen films on him. 99% of the movie lovers doesn't know about Satakarni as it happened in AD and we don’t have any documentation. Krish should be appreciated for digging the history and introducing us one of the greatest Telugu warriors with this movie Gautamiputra Satakarni. Since the movie is made as issue-based (battles and respecting women) and didn’t show the background and rise of Satakarni, there will not be any scope for historical distortion. A film like Gautamiputra Satakarni should be encouraged by watching in theaters because it introduces us our own Telugu hero who ruled the unified nation.
