Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom movie was the second installment in the original Indiana Jones trilogy. After Indiana Jones's clash with the Nazis he continues on his spirited adventures, this time in the mystic country of India where he unexpectedly crashes in an isolated Indian village.
In Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom movie is set with the scenic beauty of Indian as it's backdrop and its cultural trends give the movie a different and unique atmosphere, unusual in Hollywood movies of this time.
Just like James Bond, Indiana also has a knack for getting involved with beautiful women, this time with a rather loud mouthed whining babe but much to the surprise of all, Indiana doesn't seem to be bothered and instead he seems to antagonize her all the more! In fact their flirtatious tangle is similar to that of Han Solo and Princess Leia, when they both used to get feisty with each other.
In the Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom movie he also has a new pint sized side-kick, a street-smart Chinese kid with a funny voice and accent who can also drive a car and a cart who becomes very loyal and close to Indiana and although he is small in stature he proves to be a very handy and effective when fighting alongside Indiana.
In order to save the local villagers, who are cursed after they lost their sacred stone, Indiana sets out on a quest to regain it from the clutches of an Indian cult and in the process proves himself to be their chosen one for the villagers.
The locally occultists are called the "Thuggees" who are devil worshippers who practice black magic and child slavery. Their vicious high priest is known as "Mola Ram", played by late Indian actor Amresh Puri known for his villainous roles in Indian cinema, who's party trick is to rip a person's heart out with his bare hands and keep them alive while their heart continues beating in his hand!
Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom Movie was released in 1984, but it wasn't as commercially successful as the first movie but overall the Temple of Doom, with its new and unique plot, did a fine job and kept the Indiana Jones franchise alive.
