A rock star, Tom Pickle (Michael York), travels to India to learn to play the sitar with the great musician Ustad Zafar Khan (as George Harrison did when he studied under Ravi Shankar). Khan (Utpal Dutt) is not happy with his disciple but still takes him to Benares to meet his own guru.
According to Fox records the film required $1,675,000 in rentals to break even and by 11 December 1970 had made $625,000 so made a loss to the studio.
