Storyline

Fair-minded Raja Gajraj Singh is overthrown in a coup by his brother, Balbir Singh. Both Gajraj's and Balbir's wives are pregnant, and give birth to twin sons, and a son respectively. Balbir orders that Gajraj's son be killed. Then he arranges for Gajraj and his wife's accidental death by a motor vehicle. Years go by, most people have forgotten Raja Gajraj, and Balbir is the sole acclaimed ruler with his fair-minded and soft-spoken son, Ganga Singh, who is all set to succeed the throne from his dad. Then Ganga meets a young woman named Jugni from a poor family and falls in love with her, she too falls in love with him, and both want to get married. But Balbir will not have anything to do with her, as he would like Ganga to marry rich and wealthy Mala.

But the clouds do have a silver lining for Ganga is now ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

'Prisoner of Zenda' Adaptation - Bollywood Style
15 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't remember much of the movie, considering that I saw it about 30 years ago on TV as a kid. When I read 'Prisoner of Zenda' later, I realized that the movie was an adaptation of this. At that time, it seemed much more action-packed than the usual weepy stuff on Doordarshan. A precursor to the 'masala' action movies that were to become staple fare for Bollywood in the 70s and 80s, this movie is quite well done, even without any big names in the crew. As is common with Indian adaptations, this is not a faithful adaptation of the book or the Ronald Colman classic. Shashi Kapoor carries of his double-role, and one of his characters has a distinctly negative shade, unlike in the book. All in all, fairly entertaining stuff, and a bit of a nostalgia trip for those who remember the pre-Sholay days of Bollywood.
