Storyline

Great Barrier Reef, 2020. After a dangerous dive to save his wife Laura trapped while exploring a colonial British merchant ship wreckage, Jay Fennel, a rugged and attractive marine archaeologist lies comatose in a Boston hospital. Fennel's dream-like coma takes us back in time to Pune, India in 1778. The British East India Company is invading the palaces and a young captain named James Stewart, who bears a striking resemblance to Fennel, is about to embark on a dangerous mission. Along the way he encounters murder, deceit, betrayal and revenge. He falls deeply in love with an Indian She-warrior named Tulaja, an impossible love which he must fight for. Only the power of a ring can transcend time and save a life. Written by Anonymous

Quotes

[first lines]
[Instrumental music]
Sadhu: Why are you frightened child?
Tulaja Naik: I'm disturbed by my visions, Gurdev. I see strange figures... in white. In some strange place full of light. I see a man in some other place in a blood red coat. And I see a ring which shimmers in a blue light.
[ominous wind gusting]
Sadhu: You wish to know the meaning of these visions, child... come what may?
[Tulaja nods]
Sadhu: There was a ring, child. Long ago. It was forged of eternal love. One ring made of two rings. To fit together, both halves...

Did Josh Hartnett Need the money.......
20 September 2016 | by newcastle-98902See all my reviews

Really disappointed with this Josh Hartnett is a great actor and has been great in Penny Dreadful But this is not a film for him, Terrible story line and low budget ... How did the ring end up in a ship for start. Josh Hartnett must have signed for this very drunk at a party me thinks to do this when his acting skills are so better than a film like this. Please Josh don't put us through this again!!!! Lets have more Black Hawk Down and Penny Dreadful as he is totally better than this production lots of silly mistakes and why make it worse by trying to make him Scottish some people can pull off accents but he cant he sounded a cross between a posh Irish/ Scottish man, Who's idea was that? So overall very UN impressed... Not again please JH
