Storyline

Unusual? Very! A drama written on facts during the Sepoy War, 1859. A Sepoy, even more taciturn and moody than is naturally characteristic, hates the English rule and despises the Englishmen, whom he considers intruders and usurpers, not to mention a particular dislike for the surgeon. His spirit is rebellious, and he is every ready to inflame his fellows against the foreigners, although he is a member of the Imperial Regiment of the English government. His child is taken seriously ill, and his wife decides to go to the English surgeon and entreat his services in behalf of her little daughter. She finds the doctor fatigued and almost prostrated with exposure from the intense heat of the tropical climate. At first he refuses to leave his home and offers to give her a prescription to the garrison druggist. She supplicates him to go to the child, and through his wife's pleading and reference to his own child he goes with the woman, administers to the little one and restores her to health...

The play is magnificently staged
23 August 2015 | by See all my reviews

A drama based upon the facts of the Sepoy uprising in India in 1859, and the march of the Scotch Highlanders to the rebel of Lucknow. The play is magnificently staged, and the scenes seem to be accurately reproduced. Some of the lighting is altogether too realistic for comfort. The scenes when the fight with the garrison is in progress are about as real as one cares to see on the screen or anywhere else. The Sepoy's wife is a well developed, well played character. Perhaps the English doctor represents a type that really had much to do with that uprising and were indirectly responsible for much of the disturbance of those times. A picture like this often sets one thinking and considering the various impressions and influences which flow from the action of certain men, or a certain type of men. And not infrequently such disturbances are fostered by the arrogant appearance or actions of those in authority. - The Moving Picture World, September 24, 1910
