Urdu filmmaker Sohrab Modi directs this historical epic about Alexander the Great's thwarted attempt at invading the Indian subcontinent. The film opens with Alexander -- called Sikander (Prithviraj Kapoor) in this film -- having just taken over Persia and the Kabul valley, about to attack Jhelum. There he meets stiff resistance from Punjabi King Porus (played by the director Modi). Meanwhile, against the advise of his famed tutor Aristotle (Shakir), Sikander falls for a beautiful Persian woman named Rukhsana (Vanamala). Afraid that her lover might be killed in the ensuing battle, she visits King Porus and makes him promise to not hurt her beloved Sikander. During the battle, Sikander and Porus meet, and, in spite of a bloody battle that caused Porus' only son Amar (Zahur Raja) to be killed, the two sovereigns strike up an improbable friendship.
