Raskapur’s best-known film is an anti- imperialist fantasy historical, his favourite genre (cf. his Mulu Manek, 1955). Unlike most Indian royals, the Makranis of Junagadh defy the British who retaliate by invading Inaj, a Makrani settlement. Four members of the royal clan become bandits. The main one, Kadar Baksh aka Kadu Makrani, causes major problems for the British who order the local police chief, one of Kadar’s boyhood friends, to capture him. After a furious battle Kadu is captured in Karachi and hanged. The film was remade by Manu Desai in 1973.
