Kumar Ramsay, a member of the family best known for their horror films, scripted this version of the classic Persian legend drawn from the 10th C. Shahnama which was a staple item in the Parsee theatre. Rustom (Kapoor in a role reminiscent of his performance in Mughal-e-Azam, 1960) is the king of Persia whose wife Tehmina (Suraiya) bears him a son while he is away fighting wars. The son Sohrab (Premnath) grows into a powerful warrior and ends up challenging his father. Unaware of each other’s identity, they confront each other on the battlefield where, in true feudal tradition, Rustom triumphs over his son.
