Storyboard Text

  • King Dasaratha is getting old, and he needs to select an heir to his throne. He has the closest relationship with Rama, and believes Rama is the most worthy. He chooses Rama to be the next king of Ayodhya.
  • "I must be sure my throne goes to Rama."
  • One of Dasaratha's wives, Kaikeyi, was persuaded by her maid-servant to confront Dasaratha about his decision to name Rama king. Previously, Kaikeyi was happy about Dasaratha's choice, but the maid convinced her that Kaikeyi would lose all power over the kingdom if Rama ruled Ayodhya.
  • "I wish to have my son, Bharata, placed upon the throne of Ayodhya. Second, I want Rama banished from the kingdom for a period of no less than fourteen years."
  • Kaikeyi had once saved Dasaratha's life, so he had promised to grant her any two wishes. Dasaratha must comply with her requests, because he is an honest man.
  • "Please, dear wife, do not make me do this."
  • "When I saved your life, you promised to grant me any two wishes."
  • Rama knows he must listen to his father's wishes, because it is his duty to obey him. Lakshmana however, is very angered, and wishes to defend his brother's right to the throne. Rama refuses, so Lakshmana decides he will accompany Rama to his exile.
  • "I shall destroy anyone who opposes your right to the throne."
  • "No Lakshmana, I must fulfill my father's wishes."
  • Rama tries to convince his wife Sita to stay in Ayodhya, but she begs to accompany him. As his wife, she wishes to be with her husband wherever he goes. Rama eventually gives Sita permission to join him.
  • "You should stay in Ayodhya."
  • "No! It is my duty, my dharma as a wife, to be at your side."
  • A few days later after Rama, Lakshmana, and Sita leave Ayodhya, Bharatha comes to see Rama. Bharatha wants Rama to come back and take the throne that is rightfully his. But Rama explains that he vowed to stay for at least 14 years, and he will not return to Ayodhya until then. Bharatha promises to rule in Rama's name for 14 years.
  • "Rama, my heart is filled with grief and shame. Come back to Ayodhya and be our king."
  • "I cannot, I gave my word to stay."
