The "Romeo and Juliet" theme with an Indian setting here, as poor little rich princess Rani falls in love with Rai, the prince next door. Of course her father strongly objects, but who can fight true love? Sensual Devika Rani was the major Indian film star and sex symbol of the 1930s. This

film is still remembered for its steamy onscreen kiss. Government censors later banned the depiction of kissing in films; for years it was permitted only in art-house cinema and scattered "major" films like Raj Kapoor's MEERA NAAM JOKER (1970). Kissing again became relatively common on the Indian

screen in the 1990s.
