Plot Summary

A murderous religious cult is way-laying travellers and stealing goods in nineteenth century India. As the disappearances mount and trade becomes difficult, the British East India Company is forced to act. But they give the job to an upper-class officer completely out-of-touch with the country rather than the obvious candidate who has been in India for years and well understands the people and culture. Written by Jeremy Perkins {J-26}

Trivia The military men of the story are not part of the British army but the East India Co., a private concern that virtually ruled India for two centuries. With roots in the 16th century, the company was granted a monopoly from 1708 to 1857, when it became the largest global trader in the world, dealing in cotton, silk, indigo and even opium. See more »
Goofs The pistol used in several scenes by Captain Lewis and Captain Connaught-Smith was a revolver. The time frame for this film was set in the 1820's. The revolver wouldn't be invented and patented until 1836. See more »
