Continuing his string of films about India catering to the West, Himansu Rai stars and produces this romantic drama directed by former Royal Navy captain J.L. Freer-Hunt. The film centers on a princess (Devika Rani), who falls in love with the lower-ranking prince (Rai) of a neighboring kingdom, in spite of her father's strong disapproval. Shot in the Stoll Studios in London, this film scandalized Indian audiences with a passionate kiss between the two main characters. In spite of this, the film bombed at the box office.
