This film is set in Udaipur, and as part of the preparation for places that we are hoping to go in December, this was our first stop in films. Odd, you might think, but we have watched a lot of James Bond together over the decades, and it was a light place to start. Rather than watching something with crushing poverty, or revisiting the terrifying moments in Lion, which we did in February.
I missed that it was filmed in India the first time around, and Udaipur is called the Crystal City, with some impressive white architecture that while not highlighted in the film, is present. The film itself is the end of the Roger Moore as James Bond era, and while he is his usual annoying polished self, it is not one of the best of that genre. None-the-less, it is is entertaining in a slightly dated manner.
