Hero Jai Tilak (Kumar) belongs to a Rajput clan loyal to the benevolent maharaja (Murad). The villain is the Cadillac-driving Prince Shamsher Singh (Premnath) who tries to usurp power by killing his father, the ruler. Much to the distress of Mangala (Nimmi), who loves him, Jai resolves to tame the proud rajkumari (Nadira) as he tamed her wild stallion in a contest. Shamsher kidnaps Mangala and tries to rape her, causing her to fall to her death. Jai retaliates by capturing the rajkumari, forcing her to take Mangala’s place. Eventually it turns out that the maharaja is still alive and Mangala appears in the rajkumari’s dream, making the princess realise she loves Jai. Jai and the loyalist forces defeat Shamsher and reassume power.

Trivia:
This was India's first technicolour film. It was shot in 16mm Gevacolour and was blown up in Technicolor.

Legendary Hollywood filmmaker Cecil B. DeMille was so impressed after seeing the film that he wrote to Mehboob Khan, showering him with praises.

This was the most expensive Indian film ever at the time, as well as the highest-grossing one.

The entire background music of the film was recorded at Royal Albert Hall London, marking the first time the music of an Indian film was recorded overseas.

The English version of this film was released under the title of 'The Savage Princess'.
