Samson , India, 21 February 1964

  • Genre: Action
  • Director: Nanabhai Bhatt


Dara Singh plays the mythological Samson character to the hilt as he must contend with a love starved princess and her all female warriors, a sorcerer and his magical dwarfs, a dinosaur sized lizard, and a rebel in love with a hand-maiden.

The producers do a fine job of getting the "look" of the Italian sword and sandal films, including appropriate music, and if the film were dubbed into English and the decidedly Hindi song and dance numbers were removed you would never know this was an Indian made film (well, unless you looked at the film's credits).

Not quite as much fun as some of Dara Singh's other adventure films but a good time pass for a lazy Saturday afternoon.
