Dr. Richard Avery (Ed Quinn, known to only those who watch TV) flies to India with his young son (he is a widower) to give a lecture at a worldwide medical conference. In the audience the son Sam (Stefan Djordjevic) disappears and the good doctor notices too late, beginning a long series of chases to find Sam. Avery encounters Sr. Inspector Vijay Kumar (Gulshan Grover), whose specialty is drug dealing problems, and Inspector Julia Hyde (Joey Lauren Adams), whose specialty is kidnapping. But Avery is informed that he is to follow instructions given through a beeper and to avoid the police. Avery finds his only source of information is through Zolo (Harvey Keitel), a drug lord in Delhi who has special interests in fulfilling the ransom: cash for opium. After an endless car chase through the streets and markets of Delhi the truth about who is the real kidnapper is revealed...and the movie glides to a bumpy end.
Seeing India as a backdrop for an intrigue film is promising but visually this viewer gets the feeling that much of the footage is actually from a can rather than being on set. The acting ranges from fair to really awful and the script by Michael Cordell and Gregory Gieras is dreary. Made in 2002 and just released on DVD it is not a secret why the movie didn't make it in the theaters. Even the usually reliable Keitel can't save this one. Grady Harp, March 07
Holy Smoke from 1999. This filming location is refreshing for the
audience, who is taken on a wild ride in New Delhi or Calcutta,
ranging from kidnappings, police, CIA and local embassy intrigue,
potential narco-trafficking and underworld dealings.
The 2 protagonists, HK and Ed Quinn playing an American expatriate
underworld boss and visiting R & D scientist respectively, do
very well from representing opposite sides of the acting spectrum
(one explosive and impulsive, the other calm and reflective) while
Lauren Adams plays the high-level bombshell blonde manager with
possible links to the CIA in her embassy position, as is often the
The pace of the movie is both relaxing and upbeat, dramatic, with a
thriller combination, with the added bonus of special effects,
music and action scenes that takes this movie head and shoulders
above the majority of similar movies, demonstrating what talent,
professionalism, skill and intelligence can do when combined.
This is definitely a keeper, with replay value for the outdoor and
action scenes, exotic scenes for Euro or US audiences, centered in
India. Surprisingly good, although that is the standard by which HK's
movies are judged and expected, and original. 4.5 stars
