Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom ★★★★

What is Sankara?
Fortune and glory, kid. Fortune and glory.

There are those who practice faith, beliefs, in a precise way and there are also individuals who misrepresent and distort them. In a contemporary society, there are people who misrepresent faiths, customs, and ideologies. Neither of those religions nor their doctrines have any flaws. They are the result of morons mingling with the improper mentality. The second episode, Indiana Jones and the temple of doom, in contrast, is a film that perfectly captures the underlying nature of these blind believers. Indiana Jones' quest this time is based in India. His mission is to securely return the stolen stone (shivalinga) and the child victims from pankot to Mayapore Village. In short, I enjoyed this flick a lot because it was shot in Sri Lanka and also had Sinhala dialogues. Steven had to bring Indiana Jones to Sri Lanka as he was not permitted to shoot in India. It's a little hard to grasp the fact of speaking Sinhala natives in India, but somehow I assumed it as a tribal language. As a Sri Lankan, I was honestly thrilled to witness those scenes and yes it's a very big deal for me. There were few different impractical and unfeasible settings too. The cuisines, child slavery, and worshiping Kali through human sacrifice, have been subjected to various criticisms. Nevertheless, as a compensation, the screenwriting here can be stated to lead to a very noteworthy film that can be relished well if it is recognized as illusory or fabricated. Although it depicts the film's downsides, it also manages to keep a semblance of levity and amusement too. Very enjoyable.
