I hope you all gonna be so curious to know about the ‘Padmavati’ story. So before watching 3 hours non-fiction movie, directed by Mr.Sanjay Leela Bhansali, let’s have a look or overview over Padmavati-The Legendary Queen story.
- WHICH PLACE DOES SHE BELONG?
Padmini, also known as Padmavati, the Queen of mewar, is a legendary 13-14th- century Indian queen. She was an exceptionally beautiful princess of Singhal Kingdom (Sri Lanka). She was the daughter of Gandharv Sen, the king of Singhal Kingdom.
- WHY PARROT CONSIDER AS A GOOD FRIEND OF PADMAVATI?
In earlier days, Padmavati used to have one talking parrot, her closest friend, named Hiraman. Her Father dislikes the parrot’s closeness to his daughter and ordered the bird to be killed.
Somehow ,parrot flew away to save its life, but was trapped by a bird catcher,and sold to a Brahmin. The brahmin bought it to Chittor,where the local King Ratan Sen purchased it,impressed by its ability to talk.
The parrot greatly praised padmavati’s beauty in front of Ratan Sen, who became serious to marry padmavati. He reached Singhal with his 16000 followers, parrot had informed padmavati to visit at Temple but soon she left that place. Ratan Sen in his unhappiness decided to immolate himself but shiva stopped him.
Shiva advised him to attack the royal fortress of Singhal. They all were defeated and imprisoned. Later, recognizing him as a King of chittor, Gandharv Sen then made Padmavati to get married to Ratan Sen.
- WHAT MADE PADMAVATI TO DO JAUHAR?
Alauddin khilji,the Sultan of Delhi also heard about her beauty, and attack chittor to obtain her. He deceitfully(false action)captured Ratan Sen and took him to Delhi. Meanwhile, Ratan Sen was killed in a combat with devpal, the Rajput king of Chittor’s neighbor Kumbhalner, who was also in love with Padmavati. Before Alauddin Khilji could capture Chittor, Padmavati and her companions committed Self – immolation (Jauhar).
The men of Chittor decided to give their life against Alauddin, who acquired nothing but an empty fortress after his victory.
