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...

The movie sank not the ship
23 March 2015 | by formatt2007See all my reviews

I was surprised at the bad review when I started watching the film. A lot of effort went into this production, with good acting, an interesting storyline, time travel, adventure and history. The chase to ave or kidnap the queen kept me glued to the screen. It was a thrilling roller coaster for about three-quarters of the film. The last quarter gave mixed messages, jumbled conclusions and added loose ends. Where was the director, did he fall asleep? the whole story hinges on an underwater discovery of a sunken British ship. What ship? Who was on it? Who drowned? The last time we saw the rings they were in the hands of the two characters in 1778 in a forest in India. How did the rings get on a ship? Not by the dead character in the forest! The last quarter of the film simply sinks the movie.
