Shersing, the crafty Chieftan of the State of Chandra Nagar, announces that Maharaja Ajaysingh, became a victim whilst hunting in the forest and he assumes power. He proposes his marriage to Princess Chandra Kala, the only daughter and heir of the King so that he can become the owner of the Kingdom and the throne, without any obstacle.

Princess Chandra Kala, learning the evil intensions of Shersing, escapes from the Palace with the help of her faithful servant Balam, and by chance, she comes across a cave-man named Raja. Raja, readily gives here shelter.

Through the divine power of his Guru, Raja comes to know that the King is alive and that Shersing, with the help of a Demon named Gogo, has imprisoned him in Magic Cave. Raja takes an oath to relieve the King and punish Shersing for his misdeeds. He starts for the Journey to Magic Cave accompanied by Princess and Balam.

Shersing comes to know through 'Black Magic' about Raja and his adventures. He orders Gogo to capture Raja and the Princess. Gogo succeeds to trap the Princess but he does not succeed to defeat Raja. He, therefore, creates many hurdles for Raja but Raja overcomes them one by one and continues the his-perilous journey.
