Cast & Crew


In Bangalore, India, popular yesteryear actress Savitri is found unconscious by her young son and hospitalised, spending a year in coma. The incident receives heavy media attention, but Savitri's initial life and whereabouts remain unknown to the public. A newspaper editor appoints Madhuravani, a stuttering journalist, and Vijay Anthony, a photographer, to write a memoir on Savitri. Madhuravani recovers a letter written by Savitri, in which she wishes to take her son to someone called Shankaraiya. Madhuravani continues her research even after she is relieved from writing the memoir by her editor, and sneaks into Savitri's house, overhearing her aunt talk about her childhood.

In 1942 Vijayawada, a widowed Subhadramma and her daughter Savitri are taken in by Subhadramma's sister, Durgamamba, and husband, K. V. Chowdary, much to the latter's chagrin. Magnanimous in speech, thought and action, Savitri befriends Susheela, and they become best friends. She becomes an accomplished dancer and later earns a profit for Chowdary by acting in plays with Susheela. On one such occasion, she is praised by the Bollywood actor Prithviraj Kapoor for her performance.

The increasing popularity of cinema leads to less attendance for plays, and Chowdary incurs huge losses. He tries to have Savitri join the film industry centred in Madras, but her young age and inability to speak Tamil hinder her prospects. She, however, succeeds in meeting Ramasamy "Gemini" Ganesan who works in the casting department and has her photograph taken for a casting directory. A year later, a director comes across the directory and wants to launch Savitri, but she gets the dialogue wrong and is thrown out. However, she successfully earns a role in a film song, and her distinguished performance helps her in getting major roles.

Savitri is offered a role opposite Ganesan, now an actor, and he teaches her the Tamil language. The two actors together rise as superstars and Savitri falls in love with the married Ganesan. They secretly marry, which leads to a clash with Savitri's family. Reluctant to act in films after marriage, Savitri gives in to the persuasion of filmmakers and Ganesan, and the films turn out to be successful. Savitri gives birth two children a girl and a boy. Initially supportive of her career, Ganesan starts to feel jealous, with Savitri's fame overshadowing his, and starts consuming alcohol. Savitri tries to stop him, but Ganesan instead introduces her to drinking.
