During Akbar's rule over Hindustan, the Mughal's considered Pathans their enemies and vice versa. As a result there was a war-like relation between Mandva's Sultan Sujat Khan and Akbar. But Sujat's son, Wajid, was a peace-maker and a lover of the arts. He befriended a Hindu Kshtriya, Rajkumari Rupmati, of Mandhavghar, and despite protests from her parents, brothers, and to-be husband, Baldev Singh, she re-located to Mandva, where Wajid build her a tower so that she could view and seek blessings from holy river Narmada, who had gifted her to Mandhavghar. She became instrumental in diverting Narmada to bring water to her drought-stricken hometown. After Sujat passes away, Wajid becomes the Sultan and is called Bagh Bahadur.

a film for those interested in history
27 June 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The first reason to see this movie was historical, as the story of Rani Rupmati and Baaz Bahudar is a legendary folk tale of central India, which is real, although being a Bollywood film it may have cut some corners, but the essence of the story is based on some real facts. One of the main reasons people keep going back to see Hindi films, is the packaging of the story wrapped with some melodious music and this film has three good numbers, one of them being a classic Mukesh song 'Aa laut ke aaja mere meet', which can easily figure in the top 25 memorable songs of Mukesh, then there is a female version sung by Lata too, but the one sung by Mukesh lingers in the mind for a longer time. This film released in 1957 of Black and White era, would be a perfect one for a remake due to its story, location and ample scope for musical songs, in fact it has a good message of communal harmony too, as it is a love story of a Muslim prince with a Hindu girl, both coming together because of music. If there were periodical remakes of Devdas and all happened to be successful, why not one for Rani Rupmati which was last released almost 60 years ago and the current generation hardly knows about it.
