Time Out says

So-so attempt to repeat the success of Lives of a Bengal Lancer, with rousing action on the North-West Frontier embedded in much romantic attitudinising from Flynn and Knowles as brothers in love with the same girl. Switching belatedly to the Crimea, the plot finally justifies the title with a bizarre - but beautifully shot - account of the famous charge (the wicked Rajah causing all the trouble in India, it seems, was in command of the Russian guns).
