Ritudhwaja, Prince. Prince Ritudhwaja was created by the Indian film directors Dhirubhai Desai and Natvar Shyam and appeared in the film Maya Nagari (1944).

In one corner: the demon Patalketu, who is tormenting the inhabitants of the titular City of Illusions and forcing them to worship him as a god. In the other corner: Prince Ritudhwaja, prince of a nearby kingdom, sent by his father to destroy the demon. Adventures follow: the Prince and his companions are captured by the demon’s brother, but the brother is killed by the widow of a man killed by the brother; Patalketu is overthrown; he returns in disguise as a Brahmin; and more adventures before Patalketu is killed and Prince Ritudhwaja gets to marry his sweetheart.
