Storyline

When London-based Sam Higgins goes missing in the Ladakh region of India, his friend, Dev Anand, travels there in order to locate him. He finds this region to be quite different from the rest of India, as a matter of fact, Indians are regarded with suspicion and distrust, while the majority of the population appears to be Spanish, Italians, and other foreign nationals. The region does have a Police Station, but they are of no help to Dev, on the contrary they suspect him of being a smuggler of illicit drugs and ammunition. Dev's inquiries lead to conclude that he must meet a mysterious man named "Policeman" who has taken over the region and is feared by everyone. He also finds out that this region is well-known for attracting foreigners as opium is grown in vast quantities. As Dev starts to delve into these details, quite unknown to him, he himself has become a target for the dreaded "Policeman", and may not even live long enough to find out what happened to Sam Higgins.

Surprisingly good
12 July 2004 | by AishFanSee all my reviews

From the cast and look of the movie, this seemed to be another one of those "harsh look at reality" films. This isn't your typical underworld/mafia movie, though. It looks at a new aspect of the underworld--drug smuggling in a specific region of India which supposedly produces the best heroine in the world. You're probably thinking, yeah, and that's supposed to make it any less boring? I actually thought this was an extremely intelligent film.

The plot becomes more and more complex and convoluted as the movie goes on.

It's an interesting search of a British botanist who has been declared missing ever since he entered the notorious jungle taken over by a gangster known as Policeman (who also has a very interesting story), where grows the deadly plant. Songs are lame, except for the title song. Most people will not like this movie, but if you're up for such a fare, you might want to check it out.
