Storyline

He is sumptuously entertained by the Maharajah and falls in love at first sight with that ruler's favorite Nautch girl, Zahanna. They meet clandestinely and are observed by Hyzan Singh, who informs the Maharajah of the happening.

Considerable overacting is apparent throughout
25 November 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A three-reel subject employing many of the Universal City's new assortment of animals, including elephants, camels and tigers. Lieut. Clifford falls in love with the Maharajah's favorite nautch girl. He is lured on a hunting trip in the jungle and is rescued from death by the nautch girl after many thrilling experiences.

Considerable overacting is apparent throughout the film, but the picture is entertaining. - The Moving Picture World, October 11, 1913
