Interesting Historical Film
2 September 2011 | by (Orange County, California) – See all my reviews

I saw this film at Cinecon 47 with a live piano accompaniment. It depicted a period of the British occupation of India that looked fairly accurate. The half-Indian/half-British character was treated with scorn by both the Indians and the British, despite him being the wealthiest person in the region. Unfortunately, it was clear that the actor was simply a white man with dark make-up. The plot was full of melodrama: the governing British colonel was depicted as an alcoholic wife beater, his son was a selfless Army doctor trying to save a village from cholera, the washed-up actress/dancer fell in love, all while the half-breed was inciting the locals to riot. Nevertheless, I found it to be slow and not terribly interesting. The actors emoted and the sets looked like they were recycled back lots. The film restoration did look good.
