This is another bizarre Indian snake goddess movie where we see her dancing in human form, fighting in snake form, drinking milk offered by her worshippers, and being forced to dance for her life by flute-playing snake charmers. She changes shape with the usual basic morphing effects. There is also a talking parrot, cobras playing musical instruments, a man injected as a boy with snake venom so he becomes poisonous to humans, a cobra drinking milk from a cow's udder, and plenty of romantic twists and divine interventions. The snake goddess protects her faithful followers and even cures a young girl's deformed face with her tongue. My favorite shot is when the snake goddess is in human form but we see that her shadow is that of a cobra.

Soundarya is the actress playing the snake goddess and while she is stunning to look at and does a great snake-hands dance, writhing on the floor in a scaley green costume, there are lots of other side plots that make her more of a supporting actress to her human worshipper Nagalakshmi.

Representing the snake goddess fighting the evil vulture god, we see a real fight between a cobra and a vulture. They appear to tire and separate at the end, so the outcome is unknown.
