The Historical Drama – Manthiri Kumari

The full Madras cinema treatment (i.e. also not very accurate) for a film adaptation (Manthiri Kumari) of the Tamil Buddhist classic, Kundalakesi. The attire includes a short embellished tunic (with a good degree of frills) and a jewelled belt for the leading lady.

And there’s a fish-shaped instrument – all the better to woo her.
