This story takes place during Ayuthaya period around 1530. It is about politics regarding three kingdoms, i.e. Taungoo - ตองอู (Burma), Phrae (Thailand) and Hongsawadee - หงสาวดี (Mon). It relates the fabulous destiny of Sadet (จะเด็ด) (Chaiya Suriyun). One day he will become King Bayinnaung (พระเจ้าบุเรงนอง), Burmese King, known as "The Conqueror of Ten Directions" as his empire extended up to a big part of Southeast Asia including Thailand. When he was a baby, a monk promised to Sadet a bright future. He was brought up by a royal wet nurse in Kingdom of Taungoo. Mingyinyo (พระเจ้าเมงจีโย) was the King of Taungoo from 1486 to 1531. Sadet becomes very close with King Mingyinyo's children, i.e. Mangtra, the son, and Chantra (จันทรา), the daughter. Sadet is brave, has a nice presence, speaks well so all ladies like him and fall in love with him. Sadet needs to be separated from princess Chantra. He is surprised with Chantra in his room. Their different social status doesn't allow such behavior. He leaves for Hongsawadee. Mangtra wants Sadet to speak to princess Thavadee on his behalf. Princess Thavadee loves Sadet also despite Sadet's attempts to tell how good Mangtra is. Sopinya, Princess Thavadee's brother, is angry with Sadet's behavior and would prefer to have Mangtra as brother-in-law. Khairoo, head of Hongsawadee swordmen, prepares a plan. Jewelry is stolen and found in Sadet's room. Sadet has to flee. The monk tells Sadet to take refuse at Thayaki's sword school. Sadet fights with some ruffians in a restaurant. Those are part of Thayaki's sword school. Sadet has chance to meet Thayaki, his son and his daughter Katima (Metta Roongrat), who likes Sadet a lot. Sadet has opportunity to defeat Khairoo, who was treacherous with him in Hongsawadee. In 1531, Mangtra becomes new king of Taungoo and is now called King Tabinshwehti (พระเจ้าตะเบ็งชะเวตี้). As an acquinted childhood friend to the new king, Sadet gains the royal trust and is made the royal brother-in-law. Sadet then goes to Phrae and meets princess Kusuma (กุสุมา)(Pissamai Wilaisak), whom he tries to seduce also. The movie is divided into three parts. ผู้ชนะสิบทิศ ตอน ยอดขุนพล is part 1. It is based on Thai novel "ผู้ชนะสิบทิศ" or "The Conqueror of Ten Directions" from writer Chote Phraepan (pen name "Yacob" - ยาขอบ). There are ten directions as it includes eight compass directions and it also counts heaven and hell. The Thai novel was adapted to a TV serie, a movie serie and a musical comedy. The song of the same name from the movie series, performed by Charintra Nanthanakorn (ชรินทร์ นันทนาคร) remains one of the most recognizable and popular songs in Thailand. This 1960 old movie has still colorful and clean image that allows enjoying the nice costumes. It lasts 2h30. Old Thai and royal language (ราชาศัพท์) is used during the long dialogues. Big part of the movie is shot indoor.
