This is actually a rather interesting miniseries. I saw it when i was 8-10 years old and re-watched it many times. what keeps you hooked is really the atmosphere, the details, the lovable characters and the subplots.

In the beginning, a palace of an Indian rajah is attacked. A young boy, the prince, is saved by his father's warrior, along with his nanny and her daughter. They have to flee as the rajah and his wife are dead and the palace devastated. The warrior decides it is best to leave that life behind, so he becomes a fisherman and pretends to be the boy's father.

Some years later, a British colonel arrives to India with his two daughters. As they visit the city,they see a parade and the new rajah(who is also an evil magician), ride an elephant. He will greet them. But later, the colonel's younger and most beloved daughter will disappear. Most of the events take place years later, when the characters grow up, the Indian prince meets the English girl...

From there, many developments follow, and it is interesting to observe both real drama(colonel's anger and grief, the family conflict, another character's alcoholism) and the more mysterious events, trapped between magic, illusion and imagination(the evil's magician hypnoses, the cult of Khali, the eclipse, etc.)This series is not to miss, especially for children, because you really get to care about the characters. And despite some scary and sad (an important character dies) moments, it all ends well.
