Der Tiger von Eschnapur (1959)

The Tiger of Eschnapur

Type :   Production countries :  


The tale begins when architect Harold Berger arrives in India to meet with Maharahaja Chandra , for whom he will build a temple. En route to the Maharahaja's palace, Berger meets a dancer named Seetha and saves her from a tiger. Seetha is promised to the Maharahaja, but she and the architect begin to fall in love. Predictably, this leads to a buildup of tension between Chandra and Berger, helped along by scheming palace courtiers. The film is also filled with action, and a highlight of it is Seetha's first ritual dance. At the end of Tiger, Seetha and Berger are imprisoned but escape into the desert just as Berger's sister, also an architect, arrives with the team of architects hired to continue his work. Chandra informs her the plans have changed; she will now be building a tomb.
