Storyboard Text

  • The King Was Becoming older. He decided to appoint Rama, his favorite child, as king.
  • I am getting older. I shall step down, and Rama shall be made king.
  • Manthara did not want Rama to become King, so she convinced Bharata's mother- Kaikeyi, to talk to the king and persuade him to make Bharata the new king.
  • Kaikeyi, if Rama becomes King, you would lose your control over the king. If Rama is crowned, you will have control of the kingdom. Your rule will come to an end. Act now. You must convince the king that your son who should be king."
  • Okay, Manthara. I will convince Dasartha.
  • Manthara goes to the king, uses her boons he granted her to make Bharta the king. Despite the King's wishes, he was a man of his word, and fulfilled her boons.
  • Oh King, One day I saved your life while you were in battle. During that time, you granted me two boons. I wish to have them fulfilled now. First, I wish to have my son, Bharata, as king. And second, I wish that Rama will be banned from the castle for 14 years.
  • Oh No!
  • The King Told Rama of The Boon, and Rama Obeyed his father's wishes.
  • Mother, please be sure that father installs Bharata as prince.
  • Father, your word is the law. I will do whatever you wish. It is my duty as a son to respect my father.
  • Lakshmana and Sita decided to go with Rama on his journey.
  • "My brother, if you must leave Ayodhya, then I shall follow you."
  • "And, it is my duty, my dharma as a wife, to be at your side. How can I live without you? I must join you."
  • I do not agree with your choices to come with me, but I will allow it.
  • Despite Bharata's wishes for Rama to return to become King, Rama turns down the offer. Bharta takes Rama's sandals as a reminder that he is the true king.
  • Thank you for the offer, but I will stay here and fulfill my father's wishes.
  • Rama, come back. The King has passed away, and you deserve to be the real king.
