Watch Demon King Mahasura bite the dust all over again, in Kuchipudi style. Dr Usharani, alongwith her young and experienced troupe of classical dancers, presents a Kuchipudi Ballet titled, "Sri Siddhi Vinayaka Vijayam" portraying the birth, death, rebirth and the killing of the notorious demon king Mahasura.
Dr Usharani is an acclaimed dancer, who has choreographed this ballet, in which she and her troupe try to show the theme in a drama-dance ballet.
It starts with the artificial birth of Ganesha with sandalwood dough by Goddess Parvathi, assassination and rebirth in the form of Ganesha with an elephant head, Mushikasura (rat) Vahana Anugraham, Laughing of Moon at Ganesha and the subsequent curse, and finally the war with the demon-king Mahasura, who gets killed by the broken tusk of Ganesha. The ballet is wound up with the Jaya Jayaho, the victory song.
