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...

Very Interesting Film with Good Acting
28 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It is a very interesting film and all the actors have acted very well. The Costumes are very good and it looks as if we have gone into that period. Sohrab Modi's dialog's are very effective and his voice is very good. Dilip Kumar and Meena Kumari makes a very romantic pair. The Music by Shanker Jaikishen is very melodious. The locations are very nice. The dances are well done. The romantic scenes between Dilip Kumar and Meena Kumari are very well executed. The direction of Bimal Roy is very good. I have seen this film about 5 times earlier and yesterday I watched it again after a gap of 2 years and still did not get bored. The present day directors should learn from these type of films.
