Story : 
Movie starts with Satakarni sending letters with Ambassadors to all Kingdoms to give warning to surrender their swords and rule the Kingdoms as a Samanta Rajulu. In every letter he mentions Saranama...Ranama..  But those Kings arrest ambassadors and calls Satakarni for war. On the other side Buddhists requests Satakarni mother Gautami Bala to ask his son Satakarni (Balakrishna) to stop these wars and be peaceful. She replies that Satakarni is doing war for people to unite whole India as one. Satakarni wins 29 kingdoms and only one kingdom left to win. North India (Sourashtra) king named Nahapana (Kabir Bedi) is a very cruel person. Satakarni sends a warning letter to him also. He takes his son Pullomavi to war with Nahapana and with this victory. After this victory while Purohithulu and Samanthulu handover Agrathambulam to Satakarni he tells them to give to his mother. But they refuse to give to a Widow to which Satakarni gets angry and announces his name after his mother as "Gauthamiputra Satakarni" and his son's name as "Vasistaputra Satakarni".
