This unrealistic, routine drama is the second half of a story that began with Der Tiger von Eschnapur. This sequel was later cut slightly, combined with the first story then released in English as Journey to the Lost City. Both halves were written by Thea von Harbou and the 1959 films are both directed by Fritz Lang, von Harbou's former husband. In this continuation, Seetha (Debra Paget) and the architect Harald (Paul Hubschmid) have fallen in love. The biggest stumbling block to their romance is Chandra, the Maharaja of Eshnapur (Walther Reyer). He wants Seetha for himself. Because of that, the lovers fled from Eshnapur and are now being hunted by the Maharaja's henchmen. That leads to inevitable killings, cruelties, and inhuman conduct until the Maharaja himself is the only one left who can right the situation. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, All Movie Guide

THE INDIAN TOMB was preceeded by THE TIGER OF ESCHNAPUR, the first part of the story.

i just wanted to dispute the dismissive synopsis listed for this film...while not exactly a masterpiece of psychological complexity, "the indian tomb" is far from routine--- which i'm taking to mean mundane, generic, undistinctive and/or hum-drum, even. directed by the great fritz lang, "the indian tomb" boasts eye-popping visuals--- especially the maharanji's palace/fortress--- and a few amazing set pieces, including a visit to the leper's cave, a royal flogging and, my personal favorite, a sexy snake-charming dance by scantily clad deborah paget that is some kind of camp mini-masterpiece, and is worth the rental alone. a fun fantasia guided by the sure hand of Lang.
