Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy (2019) Movie Script

I've travelled the length &
breadth of this country.
and I have seen neither a
beggar nor a thief.
We observed that this
country has great wealth.
We have always believed that
we are the most civlized
people on earth.
But civilization truly began in India.
It lies in the roots of Indian culture.
The Mughals who ruled them for
hundreds of years,
looted their treasure
but not their culture.
Their strength lies in their
education and culture.
Break that strength and looting
India will become easier.
Using the policy of 'Divide and Rule',
the British destroyed all exisiting
forms of government in India.
Chaos ruled the country.
A few rulers and feudal chiefs
have started revolting...
...against the British, demanding freedom.
The most famous among them is the
first revolt the Sepoy Mutiny of 1857.
And the principal leader in that
revolt is Jhansi Lakshmi Bai.
under the leadership of
Jhansi Lakshmi Bai,
Its been 3 months since we
began this freedom struggle
We started with 20000 men.
Now only 100 of us remain.
Our fate will be the same if we enter
into the battle field tomorrow
Weve initiated this Freedom Struggle.
And we will be the ones to end it.
Hara Hara Mahadev!!!
Hara Hara Mahadev!!!
Even if a warriors head gets cut off,
he shouldnt drop his weapon.
Commander, a person ending his life in war
is equal to Lord Shiva.
Who gave you the right to
stop this struggle?
This great rebellion was not started
by you or me.
You are afraid to fight because
we are only a 100 men.
This war was started 10 years ago
by one brave man.
The British Empire was shaken to it's core
by a single person.
It's a boy child!
But he's born dead.
His birth itself was a battle of
life and death.
He won that battle by conquering death,
to emerge the victor.
He conquered death to be born, Sir.
He is Immortal.
He is a monk.
He is a warrior.
Hes the one who has ignited the
spirit of freedom, the sun of Renadu.
Nossam chief Jayarami Reddy
married both his...
daughters to Uyyalawada chief Malla Reddy.
One daughter had 2 boys.
The other had a boy...
...Who was clearly a chosen
one since 6 years of age.
Seema was suffering from a
drought back then.
A Yagnam needed to be
performed for rainfall.
Only a person of Majjari lineage
who could light the...
...diya on Jagannatha Hill,
could perform the Yagnam.
As per astrology, Narasimha Reddy
was chosen to be the eligible person.
On every Karthika Pournami,
Narasimha Reddy would light the diya.
People from the surrounding villages
believe that the...
...Diya shows the path to a bright future.
Narasimha Reddy was adopted
by his grandfather
who had no successor to the Nossam Fort.
Grandpa, why were they killed?
It is how the British rule, my son.
If we confront or oppose them,
they'll kill us.
You're a feudal chief, right?
Can't you do anything?
We are feudal chiefs in name only.
These British entered our country,
took away our power and
started looting the public
They threatened us with their guns and
took our powers away...
by throwing money at us in the
form of pensions.
Money that we became dependent on...
and since then we have been living
miserably like slaves.
Instead of living like a slave,
it is better to die opposing them.
I've heard that you've travelled all over
the country?
Are the British killing our people in
the same way throughout our land?
Yes, they are.
Then we should kill the British, right?
Oh, Narasimha!
They need to be killed.
Then bless me.
I'll go and kill them all.
How many can you kill alone?
I can kill ten of them.
They are an army of thousands.
They'll kill you.
Then I'll die.
Killing or dying is not important.
Winning is important.
To win, a war must be fought
You alone cannot acheive that.
People around you should also
come along with you.
For that to happen,
the rage inside you
should be ignited in others too.
You yourself have to embody
the spirit of war.
That is not your weapon.
This is your weapon.
You will first have to conquer yourself.
Lets begin implementing British rules in
East India.
In small areas at first...
then gradually as time passes
throughout the whole of India itself.
Increase the present taxes by 300%.
And in this way, the British
conquered all of India.
High ranking officials were put
in positions of power...
so they could exploit the wealth
of the whole country.
Cochrane, the representative of this
evil herd of raiders...
headed towards Southern India,
which was known as the nucleus
of the Indian Subcontinent.
But he had no idea of the existence
of the valorous land of Renadu
And that Renadu's Sun had
already risen penetrating the darkness.
Many years ago, that land was divided into
61 small dominions.
The chiefs of those dominions
are called 'Palegars'.
The Palegars had lost their power
and unity because of the British.
But Avuku's chief Avuku Raju.
Mydukuru's chief Veera Reddy.
Kurnool's Papa khan...
were the only chiefs out of the 61,
Who were still
ruling their dominions independently.
Narasimhareddy organised a ceremony to unite them all.
my son is organising this ceremony
against the wishes of the British.
Will he succeed?
Narasimha Reddy is no ordinary person.
He is the 'chosen' one.
He was raised
with a sword in one hand,
and the Vedas in the other hand.
No force can stop him.
-Take this.
-People are waiting for your performance.
Come quickly.
What happened, dear?
Swami... underneath that water?
Before the ceremony begins,
it is our tradition to pray to Lord
Sangameswara, who resides in the pond.
But, how?
How can he be in there for so long?
He's great man who mastered the
art of holding breath under water.
Majjari Narasimha Reddy.
Papa Khan, it's been so long since we
celebrated this God..
with the sacred clothes that
you've brought.
These celebrations which
were stopped by the British,
have been restarted because of the bravery
of my brother Narasimha Reddy.
Oh, God!
May these celebrations proceed
without any obstacles
Pray to God.
I won't let that happen
Why, Avuku Raju?
Arrangements for this event have been
carried out on a war footing.
Everyone has turned out to
watch this competition.
How can you say this?
Who is organising these celebrations?
Narasimha Reddy.
We too have a part in the
arrangements of these celebrations, right?
But still, All the credit wil got to
Narasimha Reddy.
Okay, who will win the competition?
They're saying it will be Narasimha Reddy.
What if we win?
They will praise Narasimha Reddy again
for organising such a great competition.
Basi Reddy,
should this competition take place
if only he's going to be
praised, irrespective of the winner?
They won't... Look at our man there.
That's a drug which triggers
madness of the bulls.
Now, neither Narasimha Reddy...
nor Lord Narasimha...
can make this competition happen.
Bulli Reddy, drug the bulls a bit more.
It's not just this competition. These
celebrations shouldn't take place either.
Lakshmi, you...
who are you searching for?
-Greetings, Sir,
-Greetings, Sir,
The bulls are heading into the valley.
Someone save them.
We found out because one of our
men saw him drugging the bulls.
Okay, it's all in the past.
Nothing happened, right?
Come on, nothing went wrong.
After all, Avuku Raju is a chief like us.
So let it go. Come on, leave.
These two families have been
locking horns for ages
-This is over.
He is not the only chief here.
There are 61 chiefs here today.
The people are here too.
These celebrations belong to all,
Basi Reddy
Both, King and the common man are
equal before justice.
Avuku Raju should apologise.
He shouldn't apologise,
He should ask for...
Why would he ask for forgiveness?
Why don't you speak up?
My father is speaking the truth?
-He should apologise
-Yes, he should apologise.
Yes, he should apologise.
A feudal chief asking for an apology?
I will cut my head off...
But I won't ask for an apology.
-Avuku Raju
-Papa Khan.
Avuku Raju may have
committed a mistake now...
But, he is the chief of 70 villages.
Its true that he hates me
that hatred
has driven him to do this damage.
But he loves his people
Let's remember his people,
his good deeds and forgive him.
Narasimha Reddy
I don't like you seeing
the goodness in me.
This isn't jealousy but self-respect,
Narasimha Reddy
I too will have a day, Narasimha Reddy
That day, you'll be in the position
to ask for an apology
and I'll be in the position
to forgive you.
There is valour in this land.
It exists both in you and me.
Show your valour not in enmity...
but in the fight for our nation.
Then I will not only bow
my head before you,
but I will have my head chopped
while fighting beside you.
Wake up...Narasimha Wake up
All People are observing your path,
they are ready to follow your path
The roar of their cheering
(by raising their fists up)
Their dance moves in
sync with Taka Thai
Diamond studded snowflakes should fall
as a 9 gem stone treasure
and stars should pop
up from our smiles.
In a sounding (Jhamaa Jham)
like Windy Rain
In the mist of raising dust
like Dhamaa dham
At a time in the breathes of everyone...
the sprinkling of
perfume like Ghumaa Gham
10 corners have received this message
Borders are erased by this happiness
The joyfulness has overflown
entirely like this
To get distributed this to
everyone this is the opportunity
Did you see our god!
our delight with your eyes fully!
With an age of a baby on cradle...
our villages are swinging (with joy)
Did you see our god!
our delight with your eyes fully!
With an age of a baby on cradle...
our villages are swinging (with joy)
our villages are swinging (with joy)
our villages are swinging (with joy)
What can we answer if you
ask who the fellow person is...
tell him its the same soil given
birth to both, thats the truth
If you are well thats enough
If I listen to that (you being well)
Im also well
The camaraderie we have shared
in the presence of this festival
we are ready to share our
happiness and sorrow ness.
Lets feel I and you
are here for each other
We all are bonded together
by the word HUMAN
Did you see our god!
our delight with your eyes fully!
With an age of a baby on cradle...
our villages are swinging (with joy)
Did you see our god!
our delight with your eyes fully!
With an age of a baby on cradle...
our villages are swinging (with joy)
our villages are swinging (with joy)
our villages are swinging (with joy)
So, your Narasimha Reddy is going
against the British.
Narasimha Reddy organised a festival
even after we said NO!
We can't bear him any more.
So I've written a letter to Madras.
Now they'll take care of him.
He did all of this,so
that the news reaches Madras.
The real festival is yet to begin.
I know that.
Madam Lakshmi...
why not use your dancing skills
to create something new for the people?
This Lakshmi dances only for God
and sings only in front of God and not
for humans like you.
But God is for the people, right?
Just try changing it to a form to inspire people.
Then your Art will have true meaning.
What happened?
Are you still thinking about him...?
I don't know, I'm afraid that
I might get lost in his words.
Let's go from here, you too
Come quickly.
-Get them out
-Come... come quickly! Careful...
Go away...
Go, everybody go away.
-Someone did this on purpose.
-Who is that idiot?
Who did it?
I did it, Sir
I did it.
You burnt your own house where
you light the lamp?
What can I do, Sir?
Once upon a time we lived like kings.
Then the Britishers came and
this land got cursed by them.
On top of that, there hasn't been
a drop of rain in the past two years.
We get only half the crop in the
and the British takes away half
of that as taxes.
All this time, I have been starving
and feeding my kids.
But now my son has gone to the
extent of stealing food.
What a shame it is to steal food!
I couldn't bear seeing the same hands
that once did philanthropic deeds,
reduced to stealing food.
I felt it was better to die than to
live with this lost prestige.
What happenned, son?
Are you hungry?
Mother has been feeding
us while she starves.
I saw food in the neighbours house
and brought it for her.
Is that wrong?
Get all the grain stock from the
godowns of Uyyalawada
and Nossam
forts, put them on to carts.
No one in this Renadu land
should go to sleep starving.
Distribute it.
Ok, brother.
It's wrong to steal
What's stealing?
We shouldn't touch anything
that doesn't belong to us.
What if it is ours?
Then it is our Right and we
shouldn't let it go.
Reddy Sir, did you call me?
I've already sent the pension
for this month.
Raghavachary, when they had good harvest,
our people paid taxes... right?
They've paid it, Sir.
Because they are good people.
Now, tell your bosses that they will
not pay taxes until the drought ends.
What did you say?
Tell them that they won't pay
next year as well.
I did not understand, Sir...
If they object, tell them we'll plow
our lands with their backbones....
and then pay the taxes.
-That could be dangerous
-Then so be it.
I have been waiting for that...
I understand.
Until the drought ends, no one
needs to pay taxes to the British.
Send these carts back to Narasimha Reddy.
-Distribute my own grain stock to our
people! -Thankyou Sir.
I can't ask my people... defy the British and stop paying
taxes, like Narasimha Reddy!
-I can't go against them!
-I too...
I too can't go against them!
Veera Reddy, a Palegar shouldn't
interfere in another Palegar's dominion.
Let's go father,
We have our dominion to rule.
We shall follow Narasimha Reddy's path.
Let's go.
One year of taxes from
our Madras presidency..
is enough to feed the entire
city of London for 25 years.
Why are the taxes from
Dattamandalam so low?
It has always been difficult
collecting taxes from there.
The greatness of Renadu land, Sir.
Even a rabbit born there chases a tiger.
Unable to deal with the people
and chiefs there...
the Nizam has gifted us that land,
That is why it is called Dattamanadalam.
That land is full of droughts,
and yet they don't heed anyone.
They pay taxes... but only
as much as they.
-Then kill them and bring the taxes.
-They could very well kill us.
Even though Thomas Munro's Ryotwari
Act took away their powers,
the people there still look up
to their chiefs.
Frankly, our men fear them as well.
Tell me in one sentence.
Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy.
He is the source of their strength, Sir.
-Did you see him?
- No.
But I've heard many stories, Sir
I heard he killed a Cheetah at the age
of ten and carried it on his shoulders.
You Indians are all bloody
barbarians, Madhavayyar.
You are only good at believing myths.
That area doesn't need a Collector.
But a hunter!
Whites are the masters and
blacks are the slaves.
For these Banaras silks The Victoria ship
has been waiting... for the past six
Sir, we do not have dyes
to colour them,
I'll give you colour.
This marriage is a festival.
A festival of love, celebrated with
Hindus and Muslims coming together.
If I knew you were coming to this
marriage, I wouldn't have come.
I came here because I knew
you would be here.
To share my feelings...
I lost my parents at a young age.
I lost everyone who was close to me.
Everything I love has a way
of moving away from me.
So I started in believing in God and
I've been serving him with my dance.
I've seen you...
you are a great soul.
Don't try getting close to me,
or I'll lose you too.
Even if you move away from me,
my love will still be with you.
Tell me,
Just like Bhagyanagaram here,
was built for Bhagamathi...
shall I build a city named Veera
Venkata Mahalakshmi Nagaram in your name?
Tell me, Lakshmi.
Just fix my name Lakshmi
next to Narasimha, that's all.
Swamy, I've sent the message
to Nossam fort..
Narasimha Reddy isn't there either.
Today is Karthika Purnima, and he
should light the lamp on the Hill.
I'm not sure he remembers this.
He's been lighting the lamp on every
full moon day of Karthika Month...
He will light it today as well.
The right time has arrived.
Narasimha Reddy needs to know the truth.
Get everything ready for Yagna.
-Obanna, what's all this for?
-Some Yagnam. Guruji has come too.
-Greetings, Guruji.
-'May you live long'
There's a drought in Seema.
Yagna needs to be performed to get
rainfall, Come on.
-As you say, Guruji.
-Get ready.
-Wear these clothes.
You tell him...
-You tell him...
-No, You tell him...
-But unmarried men should not
perform Yagna, right? -Yes.
Then how can I...
You already got married in
your childhood.
You are married to
Siddhamma, Narasimha...
Seema faced a similar drought
in your childhood
As per Astrology, only you
were eligible to perform Yagna...
In an unavoidable situation,
we got you married to
Siddhamma and had you do the Yagna.
We got you married for the sake of Yagnam.
But later the astrology pointed
you had a Dosh (fault).
It stated that you could
not meet your wife for 24 years.
Or your life would be in danger.
So we had to seperate the two of you.
Your Dosha period has ended
now and coincidentally,
the need to perform Yagna has
arisen again.
Your marriage with Siddhamma is
God's decision.
Get ready...
to wipe the tears of the people,
and perform Yagna with Siddhamma.
Stop Lakshmi...
Why should you be punished for this?
I have broke my word, Punish me!
I don't have the strength to bear it.
Why should this happen only to me?
Our parents are chosen by God..
I had hoped at least to choose
my own husband.
Now it looks like,
even that isn't possible.
Let me at least decide my death.
God blesses only few people
with an art form.
He has blessed you with a great
art that can inspire people.
This art isn't for you or for that God
It's for all those people
who get inspired from it...
You don't have the right to
give up abruptly
After we die and stand before the God
we should be able to look
confidently into his eyes.
We should proudly say that we have
lived every minute completely.
Every life should have a purpose.
Every death should lead to
an another life on this land.
When we find out the
reason we are born,
only then can we know
the purpose of our death, Lakshmi...
-I want to share something
with you, Can I? -Hmm...
You didn't want this marriage, did you?
This marriage took place at young age.
There is no question of liking or
disliking it.
Yes, I agree.
But I grew up liking you
since my childhood.
Were you already aware that
we were married?
Of course, I knew about it
since childhood.
You have been my world ever
since I can remember.
I used to quarrel with everyone,
even my own mother...
because they said I'd put you
in danger if I see you.
That's why...
I never got to see you.
You know, as soon as I woke up
every day, I would ask about you.
I used to feel happy when they
told me stories about you.
I used to visit the temple
that you visited every day.
I used to pray for you at the same
place where you offered prayers.
During the ceremony, when I
sensed you walking towards me,
I immediately moved to nearby pond.
I felt that you would be cursed
if I saw your reflection in the water.
I had no other world
these past 24 years.
I've been waiting for this moment so
I can look at you to my heart's content.
I couldn't see you even during the Yagna.
I knew I would cry if I see you...
I didn't want everyone at
the Yagna to see me cry.
Is it alright if I see you now?
Will you make me a promise?
I know nothing other than adoring you.
You can live the way you like
and do whatever you like...
But promise me that you
won't abandon me.
Welcome to 'Koilkuntla', Sir
Looks like this area is very peaceful.
Listen Subbaiah,
we have good news...
You don't need to pay taxes for the crops
you grow,
you only need
pay for the land own.
Didn't you get it?
Whether you get any yield from
your crops or not,
you have to pay taxes based on
the land you own.
Sir, we are unable to
pay taxes for the crops...
How can we pay taxes for land
that does not yield every time?
Then as per the law
the lands belong to us.
-Pay them wages for their
labour, Raghavachari. -Okay sir.
Are we labour? Sir,
this land is our mother.
How can we live without
our mother, Sir?
How far are your lands?
They stretch as far as that hill Sir,
a total of five villages.
Will you do anything to keep
your lands?
Yes, I'll give my life, Sir
Let's play a game.
Run as far as you can from here
All the land you step on is yours.
my horse will run along with you.
If my horse crosses you by
a step, then that land is ours.
If you cross my horse by
even a step, that land is yours.
Will you run?
No, don't do that, Sir
Don't listen to his words
He fell down.
Its gone.
All of your land has gone.
Sir, looks like our horse is
going to run till Mysore.
Run, you...
Get up, Subbayya, drink this.
Slowly... drink it
Reddy Sir, You say not
to pay taxes...
but Jackson says you are
no longer a chief...
I mean, as your adoption by Nossam
isnt legal as per the new Dalhousie law.
That means, you arent the
legal heir...
Oh no!
Who are you to question
my legacy?
Were you born to my father when
visited your country?
Did your father get born to
my grandfather?
Are you my brother? my son? my son in law?
or my co-brother?
Shut up, you are a labourer,
just like them.
Punishment is a must if tax
isn't paid. Arrest him
Why should we pay you the tax?
The rain doesnt ask it,
soil doesnt ask,
the crop
doesnt ask for it.
Who are you to ask us
to pay tax?
From the soil to the harvest,
it is all ours. The sweat is ours,
the seed is ours, the water is ours,
this land is ours, the crop is ours.
So why should we pay
you taxes?
We are sons of this land,
we were born here and we'll die here.
Why do we need to pay
you tax?
-Who ploughed this land?
-We did it.
-Then whom does the crop belong to?
-It belongs to us
My lord! See the crowd behind...
Look around, this isn't
the right time.
Let's go. Please...
Bow your head.
Come on, bow your head.
Now go!
Go back in this same manner without
raising your head...
Raise your head once you
reach London.
If you step on this land again with
your head high,
I'll cut it off.
Sir, please spare the
poor horse.
Narasimha Reddy has put
fear in it.
Whenever I sit on it...
it reminds me of that fear.
Please don't do this, my lord.
Look at it, my Lord!
It is burning!
Do you want me to ask Madras for
a Batallion to kill Narasimha Reddy, Sir?
I am the reason why
Madras is strong.
It is not Narasimha
Reddy who needs to be killed...
but the courage he has inspired
in those slaves.
I'll show them what fear
truly is...
and then we will see who
has the strength.
Spare his region.
Go and loot the unpaid tax from
the remaining Dattamandalam.
The death cries of the people should
create terror in his villagers.
Spread such terror everywhere,
that it breaks his spirit.
Please spare our God's idol
No, Lord...
It seems you asked them not to pay taxes?
We shouldnt lose even a fistful
of grain from our loot.
-What about the Dattamandalam tax?
-We've collected taxes from everywhere...
except for one area.
Salutations, Sir.
Tell me..
Tomorrow Jangama Mallaiah
special prayers for good
of land. We hoping to conduct.
all the weddings that were delayed
due to the drought.
Of course!
Give the invitation to my brother.
Alright, Sir.
-Jangam Mallaih
-Yes, Sir.
I'm offering my
prayers tomorrow on Jagannatha hill...
you can also begin the special prayers
at the same time.
Indeed, Sir!
Distribute this year's pension
for Nossam Fort...
as a wedding gift to all
the couples here.
Yes, Sir.
He came to collect the pension, it seems!
Did you get your pension?
We told Narasimha Reddy that he cannot
a Palegar, as he is an adopted heir.
We will not give him a pension at
any cost. Shave his head fully...
He won't come again.
Do it quickly...
No, dear, first this has to be offered to
God, only then we can eat.
I am starving, Mother.
[Everyone prays to the deity]
All of you please bring your first crop
as an offering to the goddess.
Everybody run...
Looks like you all had
a good yield?
-Soldiers, load all this harvest into our carts.
-Come on, load this into our carts.
Sir. We have been waiting
for this harvest for two years.
We can only give some
part of this.
You said this land is yours and
this crop is yours.
Where did you get that
courage from, rascals?
Even if we take yield from
all 66 villages, will still
have to pay
another year of yield.
Sir, if you take away the whole yield...
what shall we eat?
Please spare us this
one time.
Tell them our British
rule, Raghavachari
Yes, Sir!
All of you listen carefully!
British Empire has passed
a new rule
From now on whoever
gets married,
the Bride will first sleep
with the English Master.
This is for your own good.
At least this way, your black race
will turn white.
I will first sleep with all
these 10 brides.
Aaah, dont be afraid.
I dont need everyone at
one time.
Send me one every night.
You decide which girl will be sent
each day.
And you can take back
your crops.
Will you offer me the crops
or the girls?
Why are you crying?
He said will take your brides
as payment for the crops, right?
Send those brides... can have
your crops back.
Sir, we eat food to live. But we
can't sell our self-respect for food, Sir.
Take away our crops, Sir
Take away our crops...
After all...
you are willing to sacrifice the crops of
66 villages to save a woman's virtue!
You bloody barbarians!
Soldiers, take the crops.
What are you doing, son?
Basavaiah, put it back.
Forgive him Sir, he's just
a child.
It is wrong, son.
I didn't steal this, mother,
it is ours
He is stealing it and taking
it away...
Don't talk like this, son!
-Please put it back, son
-I won't
-Wake up son
-My son!
Please let me go.
Let me go!
Put it back, son.
-Put it back, son
-Put it back.
Put it back, son
Mother... Mother...
No... Leave me.
No, leave me...
Hey, Im giving you till
tomorrow evening.
Let him come.
Koilkuntla is my place.
Ask him to come,
touch my feet and apologise.
I will let him live like a slave,
or I will burn him right in
front of you.
Proclaim this...
throughout the Dattamandalam, in every
street, every village and every house.
Tell them loudly, that within
the time given by him...
Im going to enter his home and
chop his head off!
This has to be witnessed by every
person in Renadu.
I declare this in the presence of
the burnt fist of this boy,
in the presence of this
hanged farmers...
in the presence of these
brides crying.
This is the death sentence issued
by Majjari Narasimha Reddy!
Have you come here to
witness my death?
Jackson is immortal.
Let him come.
Syeraa Narasimha Reddy
Syeraa Narasimha Reddy
Sir, the money looted from
Dattamandalam isn't there in the treasury
Only 805 rupees, 10 Annas and
4 paisa is left.
All of it is going to Madras.
Let it be gone. We got rid
of this Jackson. That's enough
It isn't enough.
His death is not as important as
the wealth he looted from us.
That belongs to us.
It's our self-respect.
Not a single blade of grass
should be taken from our land.
Soldiers, on the alert!
What happened?
Narasimha Swamy has been
born again.
The story you like to call myth,
has now come true.
There once was an evil
king, Hiranya Kashyapa
who thought he was
Jackson is immortal
To kill him Narasimha
Swamy came tearing out of a pillar.
His death occured neither
in the house nor outside...
neither in the day nor in
the night...
neither in the sky nor
on earth...
But he was destroyed.
That incarnation ended with
that death.
This incarnation has now begun
with this death, Sir
Bull shit!
The consequences...
of your incarnation defying a mighty
empire will be written in history.
-Soldiers, for the Queen!
-The Queen
-The crown!
-The crown!
-And the country!
- Country!
Is he a reincarnation of God?
No... label him as a dacoit.
He has looted all the wealth that
belongs to our British empire.
He isn't a God but a bandit!
I want to see this Narasimha Reddy.
Prepare a sketch by an artist
who has seen him.
I want to see him dead
before this letter reaches London.
Sir! 57th regiment, 300 soldiers ready!
Make sure you capture him.
Chop him into four pieces.
Throw three pieces into the Dattamandalam.
The fourth one, his head see that
it is brought to me.
Soldiers, advance.
I can see a war looming in the future.
And I foresee an Independent
India rising.
All the wars fought on this
earth, were for power.
This is the war for freedom.
You must win this war.
We will certainly win this war.
You have ignited the flame of
courage in the common people...
just like you inspired a small boy
to fearlessly tighten his fist.
Internal conflict has ended...
By chopping off the head of the
British, you have begun the real war.
Do you trust these Chiefs to be united
and join your cause?
You want us to join your cause...?
Should we all walk along with you?
Just because we didn't revolt
doesn't mean we lack courage.
Some of the greatest kings were
destroyed after opposing the British.
Whose support do we have anyway?
The people!!!
The people themselves will fight the war.
A civil war? I didnt get you.
Kings fight with kings,
soldiers fight with soldiers.
Have people ever fought with rulers?
Has this happened anywhere?
It will happen now.
We can do it if we want to.
Even though we chiefs lack power,
people still see us as their leaders.
If we fight, our people will follow us.
The people will turn this into a Revolt.
This Revolt will turn into a movement
and later this movement will transform
into a war.
We can only achieve freedom for this
country, if the people join this war.
First, we need to think about how to
avoid this imminent war.
Malla Reddy,
all of us have come to a decision, right?
Tell your brother about it.
Brother, youve distributed the treasure
you looted to all the villages.
Because of you we've
become the enemy of the Britsh.
Hence, weve come to a decision.
We will talk to the British that you
should not face any trouble.
Just tell the British that you had
nothing to do with what happened and...
ask them for forgiveness.
Apologise to the British?
If you ever ask me to apologise again,
I will chop your head off.
I wouldnt care even if you
are my elder brother.
You will chop your brother's
head off over an apology?
This isnt a bull competition,
Narasimha Reddy
It's not a bull competition.
It's a war with 300 soldiers
equipped with cannons.
There is no one with you.
No one here will join you, Narasimha Reddy
what will you achieve alone?
I will fight.
Sir, Im with you.
Ill fight with you,
even if no one comes with you.
I knew this day would come.
I have been training myself
ever since then.
I ploughed my own land, I ate my own food,
I grew my own muscle
and I can run faster now.
I can kill at least
ten people before I die.
Im with you.
Lead us.
Hail Narasimha Reddy...
Hail Narasimha Reddy
[Praising Continue]
Narasimha Reddy...
this is Daniel of the 57th regiment of the
British Company,
Madras Presidency
Come forward and show your...
Prepare the cannon.
I repeat, Narasimha Reddy surrender
Try to endure it.
Hes here... to lick our boots.
Renadu's brave warriors!
This war isnt for you,
it's for your brothers,
it's for your mothers and
it's for your children.
We might not exist in history.
But we are going to write
history today!
They may think of us as 40 ordinary men.
But history will witness these ordinary
men demolishing an empire.
You may have never
been on a battle field...
You may have never fought in combat...
But hunting isnt new to you.
Nor is
killing marauding herds.
So let us hunt.
To whom does this land belong to?
-to us
To whom does this war belong to?
-to us
To Whom does the final victory belongs to?
-to us
-Sye... Syeraa...
Artillery, charge!
Save my Lord!
Don't worry, everything will be fine.
Siddhamma, try and bear it a little more.
This is the kind of death I wished for!
Kill him.
Come back
Though no Chief would support you for
fear of the British, you stood alone.
That's when you won me over.
The same 300 Britishers feared
you and asked for my help...
That was the moment...
when you defeated them.
I have come to witness your
victory with my own eyes.
Well done, Narasimha Reddy.
I admire you, Avuku Raju.
But I won't admire you.
You're always ahead of me, doing
the great deeds that I hope to do.
You picked up where I left off.
That is why I don't like you.
One fine day,
Ill be far ahead of you in this movement.
I wish the same.
Sye... Syeraa...
[Slogans Continue]
Your son
The spirit that fights for freedom
never dies.
My son's name is Subbayya.
-They must be bringing his
head right now.
Sir...why would there be so
many vultures for just one head?
They've also sent a
message, Sir
To the... who slash the
hands of the people
who feed them, the following content
is a warning.
You called me a Bandit for
killing just one person.
Now Ive killed 300 of your men.
Ill make it clear, this is a revolt.
This is a revolt by the people,
for Freedom.
From now on,
it won't be our white cotton,
but your white corpses that
will be shipped out of here.
Im warning you, as I stand on
the soil of my mother India...
Leave my country and
go away.
Otherwise, be prepared
for a war.
Yours Sincerly,
Majjari Narasimha Reddy
Stop reading
Who the hell is
this Narasimha Reddy?
Sir, Narasimha Reddy's sketch
is completed.
Theres nothing written
on this.
He communicated his intentions
directly to us.
He has begun the war.
Syeraa Narasimha Reddy
Syeraa Narasimha Reddy
Syeraa Narasimha Reddy.
-Syeraa Narasimha Reddy...
I am very happy that you have
decided to join us.
Now our revolt will take grow into
a Civil Rebellion.
what is the next move
we make?
If continue to fight from forts,
then itll be seen as the war of Chiefs.
we stay with people and fight,
then it will become a people's revolution.
From now on we should stay
with the people.
have I ever demandd
anything from you?
Oh God, never.
Why would you say that?
Can you promise me
something now?
Of course. What is it?
Can you fight like me?
You have been part of
my life...
Now will you be a part of my
struggle too?
You mean you'll fight your battles
against the British.
and I will fight the battles of life
without you beside me.
Isn't it?
Ill fight.
Ill take good care of your
mother and son...
We were brought together
for the welfare of Seema...
Now, let's seperate for the
welfare of the country.
Youve been bearing the burden of my pride
and my ambition since your childhood.
Will you forgive me for
this lifetime?
Oh, please don't
say that.
Everyone says that you love
someone else. And I know that...
its true that you are in love.
But I will never come in your way.
This land and these people
need you.
You promised to never
leave me...
I cannot let you break
your word.
So I will leave you instead.
Fight with a free mind.
He has decided to sacrifice
all his relationships...
so that he can be an inspiration to
his men in war.
Please come with me...
I've been told to take all of you
to Kothakota by tomorrow morning.
Im asking you one last time
on behalf of my Lord.
Tell me where is
Narasimha Reddy?
He lives in our hearts.
-He lives in our hearts.
Shoot them.
Hunt him.
How many men does he have with him?
-About two hundreds people, maybe.
-Syeraa... Syeraa...
We will never betray the revolution!
Nor will we ever leave it!
In this Freedom struggle, we are
ready to kill any
number of enemies and we're ready
to bear any number
of our dead Until Mother India is free
from her shackles...
Sye... Syeraa...
Sye... Syeraa...
Sye... Syeraa...
Brother in law...
Brother in law...
How did he know that we hid her
in Kadapa Fort?
Narasimha, what our brother did
was a grave mistake.
He was greedy...
Move aside.
Forgive him this one time...
A mistake can be forgiven,
but not betrayal.
Hey, you not only betrayed your brother,
you betrayed the Movement.
Elder mother...
He has committed an
unforgivable mistake even after
being raised by a
great mother like you.
Its up to you, to decide
the punishment.
Sister, please forgive him,
for my sake.
We've been searching these forests for 4
months and there is no trace of him.
Announce a 5000 Rupee bounty for anyone
who brings Narasimha to me, alive.
I know where he is.
How much will you pay me?
How much further do we
have to go?
almost reached. Will
give the money you promised?
Ill pay you more than what I promised.
Show him to me
Syeraa Narasimha Reddy
-Syeraa Narasimha Reddy
I came here for you and he came
to win the bounty on you.
Hes a traitor. I gave him
his reward.
Who are you?
Raja Pandi
-Where did you come from?
I come from Tamil land,
known for it's bravery.
What is your
business here?
Youve been fighting the war against
the British for 6 months,
so I came to
help you.
Accept me, and Ill be helpful to you
like Lakshmana was to Rama...
in either victory or in death.
Right, men?
You are Tamilian and we are
Telugu people.
How can we fight together?
We share the same mother, India.
That makes him my brother.
Anything can happen.
Everything is possible.
How do you know about
Narasimha Reddy?
Everyone in Tamil land is aware of
Narasimha Reddy.
Every village there sings
songs about his bravery.
The blessed, loving son of the sacred
land mother India
Uyyalawadas Narasimha
The warrior whom the history
pages cannot ignore.
The Sun given birth by
Renadu land!
Death itself has blessed you
with a long life...
You've overcome obstacles
from the moment you were born.
The sky bent her head down
and saluted you
You are born as a new
O syeraa
Ohoo syeraa
Ohooo syeraaa
Your breath brings
the dawn!
O syeraa
Ohoo syeraa
Ohooo syeraaa
Glory has taken your shape!
O Syeraa...
Syeraa syeraa
O syeraa Ohoo syeraa
O syeraa Ohoo syeraa
God blesses very few people
with an art form.
He has blessed you with a great art
that can inspire people.
This art isn't for you or
for that God
It's for all those people who
get inspired from it...
You are the courage that roars
against the arrogant English lords.
You are the valour that fills
your fellow man with courage,
raising their bowed heads.
You are the slogan who inspires
us to break the shackles,
and oer our lives for the
sake of freedom.
You have gathered all the people at one
place like water drops...
and transformed them into
an ocean.
Like a blowing hurricane
capable of shaking
the world, youve opposed
the lords.
This is the very first
independence struggle
striking like thunder from
the people themselves.
This is the fire burning
in the dark night of foreign rule.
O Syeraa...
Syeraa syeraa
O syeraa
Ohoo syeraa
O syeraa Ohoo syeraa
O syeraa Ohoo syeraa
O syeraa Ohoo syeraa
Bellary - Russell's force...
Secunderabad - Nott's force...
Madras - Watsons force...
Cumbum - Scotts force
should be ready
to attack him on all four
sides at once.
He should not escape
this Renadu land
Your valour has said its better to die than live like a slave.
Your movement has taught not to accept
the suppressing dominance, if we are humans.
Lets detach us from spouse, children,
mother, birth, all relations and move forward.
You alone can move thousands
towards a single goal,
let your every step move in
that direction.
To the battle field
To the battle field
Like a strong young Lion
Lets Possess
-Lets Possess
Stride Victoriously...
-Stride Victoriously...
Chasing them is the
menacing killer.
Your breath brings
the dawn!
Whats your name?
You are doing a great thing
for the movement.
You've been singing about Narasimha
Reddy as if you know him.
Do you know him?
Im in the movement. Anyway,
who doesn't know about the Warrior?
Please forgive me.
I've sung with you without
your permission.
Singing with me isn't enough...
Send a warrior to the war.
I have sent
the leader himself.
Im his wife.
Is he with you here?
I felt I was an obstacle to the war.
I left him free to his will...
Dont you feel sad to live
without him?
Hes given me enough love
to live a full life.
Yes, that he has.
Give him here.
Is he your son?
May I...
Oh no dear, calm down.
nothing dear, dont cry
Here. Let me...
Come here, son...
No dear, calm down
God always knows what suits
a person best...
He gave you the responsibility
of a family...
and me the responsibility to
publicise the war.
You are right.
What happened?
I'am declaring Independence
of this land of Renadu.
I will throw out every single Britisher
from my mother land.
Tell your London rulers that Im the
new King of Renadu.
Tell them, If they want to step
on my land,
they need to pay me taxes.
You aren't confronting slaves but
Independent Indians.
We need to stop him before London
gets wind of him.
What's our plan?
Mother, all of you suddenly here?
Im sensing something bad Narasimha.
Entire family is anxious about you.
So we all came to see you.
Nothing to worry mother...
I have an entire army protecting me
like an eyelid protects an eye.
There are friends like Veera Reddy
who are ready to die for me.
Nothing bad can happen to me.
Don't worry.
I didnt join him to make him the king.
There is only a king of Renaadu and that
is me.
Avuku Raju!
I thought Avuku Raju was dead long back!
Now I see the real Avuku Raju.
Join me...Let us be kings together
We shall Kill Narasimha Reddy
along with his family.
-Then what? -This is the agreement letter
written by Cochrane
if we can kill this revolt,
Renaadu will be split into two...
northern division for me...
the southern division for you.
Can we two people pull this off?
There are many more like us in the army.
I was waiting for a strength like you.
-When shall we do this?
all of this needs to happen tonight...
This night.
At midnight when everyone is asleep,
I will open the castles doors.
My men will come in.
Narasimha Reddy
sleeps in the last bedroom.
everyone will be sleeping in their rooms,
Ill open the door from inside.
Raja Pandi who guards Narasimha Reddy
would be residing in the east room.
I will be slashing him.
You've betrayed the King.
I won't betray my king.
To win the external enemies, we should
identify the internal enemies first.
because of your betrayal,
we've lost our friends in the army.
I shouldve killed you at that time.
To know who all are with you,
Ive planned this game.
Now game is over.
Not in the heart, hell become a warrior.
He made a promise and broke it...
so pierce it into his throat.
Avuku Raju! Forgive me.
Person asking forgiveness
shouldnt be alive Basi Reddy.
Bravo Narasimha, you proved to be a leader
youve identified
and wiped all of them efficiently.
We have one culprit left, Veera Reddy.
As long as greed and fear exist in this
world, people like him continue to exist.
I thought of killing him on spot.
But you flashed in my mind
Its up to you how you punish him.
A traitor committing a sin against the
Revolution should die even if its my son.
You cant do it. Leave it to me
Kill that TRAITOR.
Get lost.
Sir, this woman is touring all villages
propagating revolt by singing songs.
She is a dancer!
A sword is useful in a war,
an art can initiate a war.
Shes dangerous than Narasimha Reddy.
Sir, shes the love of Narasimha Reddy
shes inciting the public with her art.
She'll incite us too with the same art...
At least
I will get satisfied with my eyes.
This body is born for Narasimha Reddy,
no one else
has the eligibility to touch it.
Hey, do you think Narasimha Reddy
will come to save you?
Once look around...
There are thousands of boxes with
not for the war but for a massacre.
No one of Dattamandalam will witness the
sunrise tomorrow morning...
including your Narasimha Reddy.
You have no alternative...
Come on dance.
Go on dance!
Every life should have a purpose.
Every death should lead to
an another life on this land.
When we find out the reason we
are born,
only then we can
know the purpose we can die for.
Soldiers Jump.
Sir, please provide the name.
Lakshmi Narasimha Reddy.
A Woman acting as a suicide weapon has
killed 300 British soldiers!
Why are 9000 men behind a single man?
What is happening?
Freedom fight!
he feels hes waging a civil rebellion
just because he has few sheep with him.
Civil rebellion...?
My Lord! I would not worry about
an army of lions lead by a sheep,
I would worry about an
army of sheep lead by a lion.
It will transform
all of these sheep into lions.
This valorous Vermilion on your forehead
has to transform into an independent
Vermilion on mother India.
Declare the WAR.
Invite him for peace talk and
if he is reluctant, kill all his men.
Slaughter the demons.
My dear patriots...
It's time to repay our motherland.
Lets shed our blood and get freedom
to our motherland.
Sye.. Syeraa..
Prepare the cannons.
Prepare the Artillery
Hail Goddess!
Raja Pandi...
3000 of his men are dead.
10000 of our men have died.
You try to hide this from me!
What about Narasimha Reddy?
Hes very badly wounded Sir.
Spread rumours that
Narasimha Reddy is dead.
Sir, he's not....
Narasimha Reddy isnt a name.
Its a symbol of freedom.
When he killed one of our men,
40 men joined him,
when he killed 300 of our men,
4000 people joined him.
If the people in this country come to know
that 10000 British have died,
those thousands would become Lakhs,
the Lakhs would become crores.
The countrys people would revolt.
People here are in a rage.
When they hear about their leaders death,
the rage would calm down...
and their courage will die.
They need to hear about
his death not his victory.
By the time they realise the truth,
Mr. Veera Reddy...
you are my enemy and Im your enemy
I heard about you.
I felt pity on you after coming to know
the injustice you faced.
I heard you had a son
and you loved him very much.
It seems, Narasimha Reddy killed him.
Narasimha Reddy killed him
as he betrayed the revolt.
Then why did he spare his brother
for the same sin?
Shouldn't the law be the
same for everyone?
Bloody blood relatives!
Always leading to injustice.
My blood is boiling,
how come you are silent Veera Reddy?
I havent come here
to take advantage of you...
Learn who is taking advantage of you.
Think about it, Veera Reddy.
Swamy, no one knows about
what exactly happened in the war.
Everyone are saying my son is dead.
Im afraid
Today is full moon day of Karthika month.
The gave on the
Jagannatha Mountain will be lit.
Where are you headed to, Narasimha?
Today is the full moon day of
Karthika month.
I should light the Diya on the Mountain
Is it so important at this time?
The British are already spreading
romours that you are dead
Tonight thousands of eyes will be
hopefully looking at that mountain.
They all should know that we won the war
and our revolt is still alive
Now you are more important than the Diya.
No, the hope people have on us is more
the Diya being lit is more important.
For some reason, I am sensing something
bad, Narasimha Reddy
What Narasimha Reddy said is true.
The hope shouldnt die
Nothing bad will happen to me,
believe me.
-How are you?
Siddhamma... How have you been?
Are you okay?
Why are you here at this time now?
I know that you would be safe.
I have come here to just see you.
-Are you alright?
I always knew
nothing bad can happen to you.
Give me...
So cute.
-What happened...
-Take him.
What happened? Are you okay?
I am feeling a weird dizziness
What happened...
Veera Reddy...
What's wrong with you?
It isnt safe for you to stay here for
long. Please leave from here.
-I won't go.
Diya shouldnt be lit, catch him alive.
Please, come with me.
No one knows about this way.
You leave through this cave.
-Move Fast.
-I can't go.
No, I will stay with you
No Siddhamma, the Diya should be lit there
As a mother you can light up the
Diya in the coming future.
Don't worry about me We shouldnt be
living life for relationships...
but should live for responsibilities.
Stop him.
Narsi, are you alive?
Narasimha Reddy didnt kill me father.
You know that...
Your dad loves you madly,
He has high expectations on you.
Now because of you,
he will be a dead soul.
I cant see Veera Reddy like that...
Go and Kill him completely.
I have committed a sin.
Let me die.
Betray the British instead of betraying
us, You would be called a patriot.
Do something great and then meet your
father, That way make him alive.
Father, someone from our army is planning
to sedate Narasimha Reddy
and help British arrest him.
I've come to inform him the same thing.
Im that Traitor, son
What the hell did you do, father?
Veera Reddy...
Mr. Narasimha Reddy...
your companions Gosayi Venkanna,
Avuku Raju, Papa Khan...
and 112 of your followers
are being expeled
to an Island as a punishment.
Accept all the crimes you have committed
and make an apology.
The British Government might
reduce your punishment.
If you have a last wish,
tell me now in one sentence.
Get out from my mother land!!!
According to
Section 2-Regulation 1-1834 act...
hang him in the presence of the people.
It have been good if I was along
with my friend even in his death.
Narasimha Reddy
is standing on the tip of the victory.
He is immortal...
death cant defeat him
The court of faujdari adaalat
convicts the prisoner
Majjari Narasimha Reddy...
on the counts of rebellion,
murder and robbery...
and hence orders him to hang by the neck
until death.
Raise your heads...
Wipe your eyes and watch me
with a pride filled chest...
It is freedom which is ahead of you.
The lullabies sung by mothers of this land
have stories of braveries filled in them.
War happened on this land
took form into a Puranam (Epic).
Blood spilled on this land took
form into an Epic.
We are the ones who taught
salvation to the world...
now well teach them what Liberation is.
We taught them life,
now lets teach them Freedom.
Lets chase the whites away,
who have been looting
our mothers milk by slashing their heads.
The ultimate goal for every human
on this land should be only one thing...
Freedom, Freedom, Freedom.
A warriors life lost for the cause of
that Freedom will take shape of a war.
From now, Im the war.
Body burnt for freedom
will take shape of a country.
From now, Im the country.
Celebrate this day on which Im hanged,
make it a grand festival.
Its not my death which is
happening here but birth...
a birth to the nation mother India.
Hail Mother India
Hail Mother India
Hail Mother India
Hail Mother India
[Slogans continue..]
Hang him
Hang him
Narasimha Reddy...
I gave you birth by giving you my blood
and you have returned the same blood
to this mother.
from every drop of your blood a new
Narasimha Reddy will be born.
Your dream for freedom will come true.
Syeraa Narasimha Reddy
Syeraa Narasimha Reddy
Syeraa Narasimha Reddy...
Syeraa Narasimha Reddy...
Any war ends with it's leaders death...
but this war has begun with your death...
This wont stop, You've won Narasimha
This war was started by
Narasimha Reddy.
We will continue it.
In every soldiers weapon here
we have Narasimha Reddys soul.
-Shall we forgot this?
-Let us achieve! Let us achievee!
Let us achieve! Let us achieve!
Our gole?
As a sign of warning to Indians, they
Uyyalawada Narasimha reddy's head
to fort entrance for 30 years
But this warning became an Inspiration
thousands and lakhs of people have
revolted and fought relentlessly for
an Independent India over
a course of 10 decades.
It was the result of those sacrifices our
Mother India was freed from the chains
of slavery on 15th August 1947
breathing freedom
And made us independent.
Lets respect Indianness
and lets feel proud as Indians.
