Storyline

Superintendent Stafford of the United Provinces Police, has his men arrest an entire tribe on vague allegations of poaching and theft in British India. Their leader, Sultan, father of a young boy, Munnu, whose wife, Tara, is expecting their second child, is also arrested and held in a cell with criminals in Fort Najibabad. Sultan, Tara, and many others manage to break out, but Tara and the newborn both pass away. Sultan, with the help of his men, decides to revolt against the oppressive British - who create a mobile unit, led by Freddy Young, to counter this revolt as well as announce a reward of Rs.500.00 - but Sultan manages to elude them. Then amidst clashes between Freddy and Stafford, and the entry of Jane Stafford, it is made known that Sultan's tribe will be transported by train to a compound in Delhi. This news reaches Sultan and he prepares to attack the train and free his people - little knowing the trap he and his men will soon be walking in to. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

Goofs

Sultan, his son and two women are at a hut after his escape from the gaol. In a close shot, they are standing in front of the house, to the left of a well. The next shot, a long shot, shows troopers arriving in pursuit of Sultan. In the background, Sultan and his companions can be seen moving from below the house to the position they occupied in the close shot. The following shot shows the women and the boy back to the left of the well (Sultan has gone to hide from the troopers). See more »

Quotes

Young: I don't dislike your father - I just think he's wrong in some of his attitudes.
Jane: Oh?
Young: Like a good many of them who've been here a few years. They're well-intentioned, they've managed to keep stability in the country so far, but basically they think the Indians are a bunch of no-goods.

Red turbans versus black ones.
20 August 2003 | by See all my reviews

The adventure yarn as it used to be a long long time ago.There's the proud rebel "Sultan" (Brynner) who's fighting against the English (represented by a loyal brave generous officer-Howard- and a villain one -Andrews-).And Andrews looks the part ! As the case often happens,to hear the scenarists ,if a father is wicked,then the daughter is adorable:she's played by a decorative Charlotte Rampling ,who tells Howard -whom she's in love with of course-:"one day ,Sultan and you ,you will meet".Main interest remains the splendor of the landscapes.
