Storyline

Injured by a Jewish child named Elijah, Brutus has his soldiers arrest him, and ignoring the father, Ezra's pleas, he has Elijah thrown to the lions. Ezra's servant, Emmanuel, breaks into Brutus' mansion and abducts his daughter, Lydia, and takes her to Ezra, so that he could kill her. But a grieving Ezra decides to adopt her and re-names her Hannah. Years later the father and daughter are financially well off but people continue to be oppressed by the Romans. Hannah comes to the assistance of Julius Caesar's heir, Marcus, due to an accident with his chariot, and he is smitten by her despite of his forthcoming marriage to Octavia. Unable to get her out of his mind, he dons a Jewish guise, calls himself Moshe, and dramatically befriends her and Ezra. He turns all his affections on Hannah much to Octavia's displeasure. Caesar wants him to wed but Marcus refuses, and an enraged Caesar gives him time to reconsider. Hoping that Moshe will marry her, Hannah is shocked when she witnesses him...

A great love story.
25 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When a piece of brick fell on the roman militia I thought we are going to see something like Benhur. Though Benhur and Yahudi were made around the same time and the two movies told stories of the battle between the Jews and the Romans, Yahudi presented a great love story about a Jewish girl( Meena Kumari) and a roman prince( Dilip Kumar ) When we see such a movie we see horses, swords, soldiers, slaves, spears and poor people being dragged on the streets but Yahudi - what a story is this film about. It is one of the best love stories that I have seen in Indian films. Director Bimal Roy - creator of Parineeta, Devdas, Bandini and Madhumati gave us another gem of a film that showed his mastery of film making. Both Dilip Kumar and Meena Kumari played there roles excellent specially Meena Kumari was just wonderful in the role Hannah ( Lydia ) and in the first scene it reminded me of Madhubala playing the role of Anarkali where prince Salim was also played by Dilip Kumar. Though we don,t expect Yahudi to be a very lavish film with all the expensive sets but the producers and director maintained a very well balanced visuals to illustrate the story of its period. The music was very good and the duet dance of Helen and Cuckoo was very well presented. I saw this movie in 2011 after almost fifty two years but I enjoyed every minute of it. I give it a eight out of ten.
