It is the year 1856. Nawab Wajid Ali Shah is the king of Awadh, one of the last independent kingdoms of India. The British colonialists, intent on controlling this rich land, have sent general Outram on a secret mission to clear the way for an annexation. Pressure is mounting amidst intrigue and political manoeuvres, but the Nawab whiles away his time in pursuit of pleasure and religious practice. The court is of no help either—Court nobles Mir and Mirza, ignoring the situation of their country and all their duties towards their families, spend their days playing endless games of chess. The film is based on Munshi Premchand's short story of the same name.

Andrej B (mx) wrote: There's a difference between an action film and an exploitation film, and this film definitely fits into the exploitation racket. Starts out as some cheap asian horror story then, it becomes a scene for scene rip-off of The Terminator. Really! The "Lady Terminator" in question is a re-incarnation of some horny devil women from 100 years ago, and in one scene she re-creates the slicing of her eye much like Arnie did in Terminator, except here it makes no sense other then living up to a Terminator rip-off. There are some unintentionally goofy lines here, one of the most popular being "I'm not a women, I'm an anthropologist" and so forth. It's funny at first but you'll lose a good amount of brain cells in the process. On a bonus note: the women in this film playing the Lady Terminator is also credited as the make-up artist, I love the idea of her applying the zombified Lady Terminator make that appears in the last bit of the movie to herself!
