Mythological tale

The programme will premiere on the channel today at 12 pm. Tripura is an animation feature full of action and special effects of mythological proportions. The epic Tripura begins after the death of King Taraka, at the hands of the devas, who send the asuras fleeing from their kingdoms into hiding. Determined to provide a safe haven for them, the great asura architect Maya draws on his vast powers of sorcery to build three magnificent airborne cities named Tripura, each to be ruled over by one of Taraka’s three sons. The cities are indestructible, only able to be destroyed by the one and only Lord Shiva, the destroyer. Soon enough, the asura kings begin craving greater power. They plan a secret invasion of the kingdom of the devas. Now, Indra the king, faces a formidable challenge — defeating an enemy who is protected by the Gods themselves.
