Videodisc release of the 1986 motion picture.
In a small, tribal district town of Central India in 1929, Francis Massey is the 'English Type Babu' at the Deputy Commissioner's office. For a man of lowly birth, Massey has risen to a dizzying height. Whenever the real world fails him, he improvises - boldly. Alas, the unsmiling, implacable machinery of the Raj has no room for Massey Sahib the entertainer. Right up to the bitter end, Massey believes that Deputy Commissioner Adam Sahib will step in and save him...
