Malaysia, the second half of 1800. The English Queen Victoria owns the domain of the eastern lands of Borneo, commanded by Lord James Guillonk, fierce and ruthless conqueror, father of the beautiful Marianna Guillon, nicknamed "the Pearl of Labuan". The brave Sandokan is a young Indian prince, that as a child he lost his kingdom because of the invasion of English. Sandokan is now the captain of a den of pirates who make constantly attacks against the British army.
The series Sandokan, which fictionally took place in the jungles of Sabah, Borneo, was filmed in the Malaysian Province of Terengannu, including Kapas Island, a small tropical island with palm fringed white sand beaches and dense jungles across the town of Marang. See more »
When I was growing up in Spain, this was a must see for kids. I went to an all girl school, and we would recreate the episodes during our recess. I have never seen the mini series again, as I think it would tarnish the wonderful memories it holds. I always remember the TV promos: "Kabir Bedi, Sandokan" which served to permanently bond the names together. To this day to think of one is to think of the other. The "Tigre de Bengala" must have been our first collective crush, as we always commented on how handsome and valiant he was. Even the nuns would watch the series and comment on the adventures. It brings back fond childhood memories.
