Genre: Action/Adventure/Thriller/ Fantasy

Starring: Harrison Ford, Amrish Puri, Kate Capshaw, Jonathan Ke Quan


The great American archaeologist, Dr. Indiana Jones (Ford) is doing business in China when things turn out to be terrible wrong. Along with showgirl Wilhelmina (Capshaw) and a young Chinese boy Short Round (Quan), he soon finds himself in the jungles of India. The nearby villagers help him and believe that he has been sent by Lord Shiva to remove their worries. The villagers believe that the king of the nearby Pankot Palace has stolen their sacred stone which gives them power along with their children. They request him to bring back the stone and the kids. On arriving at the Palace, despite multiple assurances that the villagers claim is untrue, Indiana stumbles upon a secret passage which leads him right to a Thuggee ceremony, led by the high priest Mola Ram (Puri). There were originally five sacred stones of the Thuggee cult out which three exist and two are buried under the palace. Mola Ram has kidnapped the children to dig and excavate the remaining two stones. The movie is quite typical of the series with astonishing stunts and a highly predictable plot. The movie doesn't harp of anything different and its simply the action and thrilling stunts that make this movie a classic favourite.

Thumbs up: Stunts and action
Thumbs down: Predictable outcome, poor depiction of India

Rating: 6.7/10
