Where did you watch this movie?

Film based on the life of Kalapi (1874-1900), a Gujarati romantic poet who died aged 26 leaving one anthology, Kelkrav, consisting mainly of love poems, apparently addressed to his wife’s maid. Some evoke the legend of Bilwamangal, while others adapt Wordsworth, Shelley and Keats into a local idiom. Prince Sursinhji Takthasinghji Gohil (Hindi star Sanjeev Kumar), the ruler of Lathi, marries two princesses on the same day. However, Rama, the princess he loves, is more interested in power than in him. The prince rejects the throne, becomes a poet and falls in love with Rama’s maid Shobhana (Irani).
