This lavish silent super-production comprising 10,000 extras, 1000 horses, and scores of elephants is a climax of German film pioneer Fran Osten's richly cinematic sojourn in India. Royal cousins and rulers of adjoining kingdoms King Sohat (Himansu Rai) and King Ranjit (Charu Roy) share a reckless passion for gambling, the perilous tiger hunt, and the beautiful maiden Sunita (Seta Devi). After a tiger nearly claims Ranjit's life, Sunita nurses the handsome young king back to health and becomes his bride. Knowing that the only thing stronger than love in Ranjit's heart is a compulsive fascination with games of chance, jealous Sohat challenges his cousin to a winner-take-all contest.
