Prithviraj Kapoor & Sohrab Modi magic
31 December 2018 | by sherrvin-1See all my reviews

A historic epic produced & directed by Sohrab Modi is basically based on faceoff between Alexander the Great & King Puru, whilst Sikander enters Indian subcontinent en route to his journey to conquer the world. Who wins the battle is a question for everyone to find out but the movie is a feat for movie lovers. Everyone knows the story but watch out for two acting power houses, Prithviraj Kapoor & Sohrab Modi, facing each other. First two scenes, featuring both of them together, are sheer magic. You will love their dialogues & dialogue delivery. Watch this movie to find out that Prithviraj Kapoor was the first dashing hero of Indian silver screen. He was not less than a Dilip Kumar, a Dharmendra or a Vinod Khanna or a Salman Khan. He looks amazing.
