  • pepoire's rating of the film Savage Princess

    ROLLICKING AS FUCK. I'm not into swashbucklers (Fairbanks excepted) but this was A+. Full marks for technicolor eye candy, crazy sets, cinematography, & that soundtrack! Nadira is a revelation; I loved her constant blistering rage. Nimmi is a weird actress but man, I love her. The female characters are all fantastic and resourceful. Dilip Kumar is a dashing babe, and then there's Premnath! An embarrassment of riches.
