Manilal Joshi directs this popular and sweeping adaptation of K.M. Munshi's novel of the same name. King Munja (Wagle Sandow), lord of Aranti, is a renowned warrior, lover of the arts, and libertine. One day, he is captured by his bitter rival, Tailap, with the help of King Bhillam (P.Y. Altekar) of Dharavati. Once in Tailap's clutches, Munja is sentenced to death. The order is stopped at the last minute by Tailap's widowed sister, Minalvati (Fatma Begum), who wishes to torture him a bit first. Instead, she falls for the rakish sovereign and they soon conspire to escape back to Aranti together. Unfortunately, Tailap gets wind of this scheme and has Munja trampled by elephants. This film was very controversial in its day; Mahatma Gandhi railed against it for excessive sex and violence.
