A collection of three films exploring the peculiar legends unique to South India. In Tamil, Telugu and Kannada with English subtitles
Dasavataram (1976) recounts all ten avatars of Lord Vishnu assumed (Matsya, Kurma, Varaha, Narasimha, Vaman, Parshuram, Rama, Krishna, Buddha and Kalki) to remove injustice from the world and liberate mankind.
Ashtalakshmi Vaibhavam (1986) narrates the backstories of all eight forms of goddess Lakshmi and her involvement in many interesting tales, including how Ravan usurped Lanka from Shiva and Parvati, how Lord Indra was taught a lesson in humility, how King Dasharath's daughter helped save his kingdom and how the virtually immortal demon Mahishasur was defeated.
Srinivas Kalyana (1974) tells the fascinating legend behind the famed Venkateshwar temple in Tirupati. Once sage Bhrigu paid a visit to Lord Vishnu in his heavenly abode, but he was oblivious to the sage's arrival while enjoying the company of his spouse Lakshmi. Furious, the sage kicked the Lord on the chest. Although Lord Vishnu forgave him, Lakshmi was unable to bare the insult and left Vaikunt for the earth below. In search of her, Vishnu descended to earth as Shriniwas.
