Shambuk Vadh is based on a tale from the Ramayana. After the war, when Rama has assumed the throne at Ayodhya, one day a brahman appears in his court. His son has died, he complains, due to the ruler’s paap, sin. Perplexed, Rama wonders what paap he has committed. It transpires that there is a shudra named Shambuk who is reciting the Vedas. Rama goes out in search of this shudra, and kills him. The moment this happens, the brahman’s son comes back to life.
