Savita, aka Miss 1936, is an amateur hunter while her brother Jayant is an amateur film-maker. Their father, Maganlal, arrested for the murder of a station-master, is defended by their uncle Shyamlal, who is in fact the mysterious Signal X. Shyamlal causes a major train smash-up so as to promote his new airline. He then implicates hero Sundar, son of the railway president, in the crime. Savita overcomes the nasty Signal X, whose henchmen are caught on film by Jayant as they sabotage a bridge. Nadia indulges in extensive fist-fights, set to heavy sound effects, and a famous battle alongside Sundar atop a moving train.Written by

An entertaining film with unique view of India in the 30s
It's a little strange film. Savita's father was suspected of murder, which actually his brother committed. The brother is in an airline company (in its very beginning, the 30s!) and he wants the train system (where Savita's father works) to fail. So he tries a lot. Savita goes to prove his innocence. In the way she hits a lot of guys in a circus-like way, fights, runs like a hurricane and that's why she gets the nick "Miss Frontier Mail", the fastest train in India of this time.
A tad long film, but great view over India of the 30s which has changed a lot.
