Veer Ghatotkach (1949)

  • LanguageHindi

Abhimanyu revolted against this decision and started towards Dwarka to elope with Surekha. On way, he met Ghatotkachh but since they did not know each other they had to test each other's strength before the fight ended happily for both of them and they came to know that they were cousins. Ghatotkachh undertook to help Abimanyu in his elopement with Surekha. They both went to Dwarka. There at the instance of Lord Krishna and Narad, Ghatotkchh out of his Maya created a Maya Bazar and sold many a false thing to the Kaurav party who had come for the marriage of Surekha with Laxman. 

How Ghatotkachh played tricks with his Maya and how the Kharawas had to run away with shame in their faces remains to be seen on the screen.
