QOTD 1/5/2010

Connect the films (1 Point) (other than the fact that they are all sequels....)

Ans : " Sequels in which the Title Protagonists come to India "

In 'Octopussy', James Bond comes to India to track down a circus troop run by Octopussy (Kabir Bedi stars in the film in a minor role, Vijay Amrithraj also has a cameo appearance).

In 'The Bourne Supremacy', the first scenes show Jason Bourne and Marie Kreutz hiding from the authorities in Goa, India.

In 'Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom', Indiana comes to India and encounters a Thuggee cult lead by the evil Mola Ram (Amrish Puri) The film also stars Roshan Seth.

Points were not awarded for "movies shot partially in India" , though it was the overwhelming answer because the makers of 'Indiana Jones and The Temple of Doom' were denied permits to shoot in India as the government thought the script was too racist. The scenes were finally shot in Kandy, Sri Lanka .
