Sohrab Modi directs this lavish period drama adapted from a book by K.M. Munshi. Prithvi Vallabh (Modi) is the kind and just king of Avantipur, who has won successive battles against his dark-hearted fellow sovereign Tailangan. The evil king eventually succeeds in capturing his rival through the devious schemes of his bull-headed sister, Mrinalvati (Durga Khote). Yet when Mrinalvati tries to humiliate Prithvi Vallabh in public, she finds that she has fallen in love with him. When Prithvi Vallabh escapes from prison he tries to find his love, only to learn that Mrinalvati has betrayed him. The good king is subsequently sentenced to be trampled to death by elephants.
