Lava and Kusa were born to mother Sita at Sage Valmiki’s hermitage; they grew up learning the essence of Ramayana and master the art of war by using divine weapons from the guidance of Sage Valmiki. The story goes on with their thrilling childhood experiences blended with action, comedy and enchanting magical powers. The role of gigantic falcon, squirrels, monkeys, rabbits and tortoises delights not only the children but also to all age groups.
On invitation the twins set off to Ayodhya to recite Valmiki Ramayana in front of the King Rama. The story turns gripping as the twins learn that Mata Sita was sent to vanvas by Lord Rama. They return from Ayodhya with anger and rage over lord Rama.
Lord Rama performs Aswamedha yagna for the properity of his kingdom and sets off a horse (ashwa), which encounters with Lava Kusa finally. The twins happen to read the declaration of Lord Rama inscripted in a golden plate on the forehead on the horse, arrests the horse considering that this would bring Lord Rama in front of them so that they can question him regarding the ill treatment given to Mata Sita and to debate on Lord Rama’s most acclaimed principle of dharma.
They arrest the Aswamedha horse thus inviting the mighty Ayodhya Empire to a war against them. The story gets in to a fast paced array of battles packed with scintillating/thrilling action sequences blended with spell bound visual effects. Lava Kusa defeats the two brothers of Lord Rama, Satrugna and Lakshmana thus bringing Lord Rama against them face to face in the battle field. Debate concludes with the start of war leading to both of them inevitably about to use the most dreaded weapons against each other. Hearing this Sita and Sage Valmiki enter the battle field and reveal the truth to Lord Rama that these twins Lava and Kusa are his own sons.
Lord Rama affectionately accepts the twins and praises their courage, requests Sita to return to Ayodhya. Sita refuses and recedes to the lap of her mother Bhoomatha (the goddess of earth) and merges in to the earth. Lord Rama announces Lava Kusa as the crown princes of the Ayodhya kingdom.
