An old classic

12 years, 8 months ago at Aug 22 8:30
I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this movie but since it was on the list ‘1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die’, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, to be honest, it took me a while to get into this flick. Indeed, I was really bothered by this ‘White Men Burden's’ crap and, you can say whatever you want but the damned thing was just really discriminating towards the ... read more

Description: A trio of army sergeants stationed in India during the 1890s spend their days carousing, womanizing, and protecting British colonialism from a uprising. Assisting them in their official duties is the courageous water bearer, Gunga Din. George Stevens' classic action-comedy stars Cary Grant, Douglas Fairbanks Jr., and Victor McLaglen as a trio of carousing British army officers in 1890s colonial India. When the telegraph wires to one of the British outposts are found to have been cut, the three friends, Sergeants Cutter (Grant), Ballantine (Fairbanks), and McChesney (McLaglen), are sent to investigate. They encounter the Thugg ... (more)

Mustanaamio7's Movie Diary 2024 (74 movies items)

"18.1. 2024 Three friends serving in the British Army in India befriend Gunga Din, an Indian man, who desires to become a soldier. The main characters end up searching for treasures and fighting against religious cult that is dedicated to killing people in the name of the goddess Kali. "Gunga Din" offers some cheeky humour and decent action scenes, but the film suffers from crude stereotypes that make it a bit awkward to watch nowadays. It is also quite tedious at times because of the unnecess"

" Notes: Well, to be honest, it took me a while to get into this flick. Indeed, I was really bothered by this ‘White Men Burden's’ crap and, you can say whatever you want but the damned thing was just really discriminating towards the natives (Basically, they were either portrayed as some obedient servants or some psychotic killers).

"20.7. 2020 Three British soldiers encounter a creepy and violent cult while on a mission. They also meet Gunga Din, an Indian man who wants to be a soldier just like them. George Stevens's old fashioned adventure film preaches the message of comradeship and presents exotic locations. The film is dated and awkward in many ways, for example, the British imperialist army was in reality one of the most brutal organisations of all time and much worse than the thuggee cult presented in the film but t"
