When the kingdom of Jamah is attacked, the emperor is killed, his wife, Anam flees with her two infant sons, but ends up getting separated from them. She tries to kill herself, but Daresh Baba counsels her, brings her home and lets her live there so that she can look after his mother-less daughter, Shabana. Years later, Shabana has grown up and is in love with a young wrestler, Arsalan, who is Anam's son. Her other son, Firdaus, is still alive, and has been bestowed the title of 'Rustom-E-Rome' by none other than Shehzadi Ruma, who plans to marry him. Before that could happen, Firdaus is given a priceless knife and is asked to locate it's twin, and Shabana gets abducted by bandits. In the process of locating Shabana, Firdaus not only loses the knife, but also puts his, Shabana's and Arsalan's lives in jeopardy. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

This movie stars Dara Singh, not Mumtaz!
14 October 2011 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Firstly let's correct a major IMDb faux pas. This movie does not feature Mumtaz at all, but does star Bollywood's favourite wrestler Dara Singh, who is noticeable in his absence from the cast list on here.

The running time, also omitted here, is 113 mins, rather a short one by Bollywood standards.

Well from the title I was half hoping that this would find Dara Singh in a Bollywood Roman gladiator epic. What exactly was going on I'm still not sure since the only available copy was the Indian VCD release which is unsubtitled and the only synopsis online (namely the one on here) was more confusing than helpful.

The costumes appear to be a strange mixture of ancient Roman done in a Bollywood style, and there are also sphinxes. The names are distinctly Indian, while the online synopsis places it in kingdom called Jamah which doesn't appear to exist, so exactly where and when it's supposed to be set is anyone's guess.

After some confusion about lost babies at the beginning it isn't long before Dara Singh appears (I'm guessing he's one of the infants now grown up), and is wrestling someone gladiator-style in an arena while a crowd looks on.

From here on in there are wrestling bouts and fights at regular intervals, some spirited musical numbers, Dara in a fetching leopard skin dress, and some kind of intrigue involving a villain in a furry mask and an imprisoned princess being repeatedly rescued.

The synopsis on here suggests that a stolen knife plays a major part in the plot, though this detail completely passed me by.

Fans of Dara Singh will find plenty of what they came for, namely wrestling, Hindi speakers may well find an involving storyline, while anyone else will probably find themselves up a creek without a paddle.
