The play revolves around the fall of the vijaynagar empire, whose capital city hampi was left in ruins after the the war at talikota. The sultans of bijapur, golconda, bidar and ahmednagar combined forces to challenge and fight the hegemony of ramaraya, regent ruler of the vijayanagar empire. Ramaraya’s arrogance and ego and his inner complexes caused him to go to war in his old age. It is an examination of history as well as being a most personal document of ramaraya’s failings, his betrayal by adil shah and revenge from his arch enemy nizam shah.
