Storyline

An American wife (Maryam d'Abo) of a maharajah inherits five-million dollars after he is stepped on by an elephant during a leopard hunt, but the American insurance company suspects fraud and hires an insurance investigator (Rick Rossovich) to go to India to investigate the questionable death of her husband. In India the wife and investigator start an affair that leads to several soft-core sex scenes scattered throughout the film. Meanwhile an Indian woman (Asha Siewkumar) believes that her own father's disappearance may be involved in the murder, a story that local police dismiss. She then stalks the wife to get proof of a conspiracy. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net> Corrected by JDCrownover

one of the lesser soft-core thrillers I've seen, about as hot as a sub-zero refrigerator
30 September 2008 | by movieman_kevSee all my reviews

An insurance investigator travels to India to investigate the death of a maharajah whose death was officially deemed as being trampled by an elephant in this soft-core thriller that is deathly boring and has surprisingly unerotic soft-core scenes. Not worth watching even if you find it on late night premium cable and have nothing else to do. Sleep would be preferable to this mind-numbing garbage. To add insult to injury, the movie also somehow makes India look dull and unappealing.

Eye Candy: Asha Siewkumar show T&A; Maryam d'Abo bares her breasts; and Lee Anne Beaman shows all

My Grade: D-
