Classic silent epic based on an episode from 'The Mahabharata' that tells the tale of two neighbouring kings, both addicted to gambling and in love with the same woman. Shown here in the BFI's new digital print, with score by Nitin Sawhney blending vocals, Indian flute, acoustic guitar and tabla percussion with the sounds of a symphony orchestra. Unmissable.
