One of great 'British Raj' adventure films
I was 'transfixed' when watching this film several times on the big screen as a kid ...
But beware the BluRay from VCI
(Here's one purchaser's view of their release:
" Format: Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Warning; do not waste your money on this product! I was very excited to see "Flame Over India" come out in Blu Ray so I took a chance and purchased this "Turkey". I am familiar with the movie - the story/ writing /acting/production values of this movie are top notch and I have seen it in a fairly good DVD presentation in the past - but this Blu Ray version was shockingly bad! The Best way I can describe it's picture quality is that I felt like I was watching a VHS tape on a VCR blown up on my 60" HD TV! If that wasn't bad enough the film speed was not synchronized properly so you will receive an instant headache if you try to watch more than a minute of it! An Embarrassing rip off! Amazon needs to cancel this product!"

I didn't experience that trouble with the Blu-ray at all.
