IMDb Wikipedia

Fast paced story is essentially a western relocated to India. British soldiers tangle with the local insurgents, hoping to make a last minute treaty with a dying Maharishi to prevent a war. There is a romantic subplot involving two brothers and the girl they both love. Filmed on location at Lone Pine, California, the same site as many old Republic Pictures westerns.
