Krishna Prema (1943)

Synopsis: This is the mythological drama about the beautiful Radha (T. Suryakumari) and her unflinching devotion to the god Krishna (Venkateshwara Rao) in spite of perpetual derision from her sister, Chandravali (P. Bhanumathi), and Krishna's wife, Satyabhama (Hymavathi). Krishna allays Chandravali's scorn by coming before her in the form of her spouse, Chandragopa (Addanki), and sates Radha's spiritual longing by visiting her dressed as Radha -- illustrating that spiritual love has little to do with sexual desire.
