Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationInducedPlotHole: It wasn't luck that Short Round knew how to break Indy from the Black Sleep of Kali. In a DeletedScene, he saw someone be cured of it when a lava spurt shook him out of the mind control.

Added DiffLines:

* ThisIsGonnaSuck: Played deadly serious; when Indy is caught by the Thugee guards and is chained up, the lead Thugee (played by Pat Roach) brandishes Indy's bullwhip to use on him. Indy's face says it all.

* ConvectionSchmonvection: Zig-zagged. It's averted when the first sacrificial victim bursts into flames well before plunging into the lava pit. Then it's played straight when Willie is in the exact same situation.

** In addition, Indy seeing the Thuggee slavers beat children. His immediate reaction is to throw a rock at one of them to get their attention. And that was about as far as he planned.


Added DiffLines:

* SacredHospitality: Downplayed. Indy, Willie and Short Round are given food when they come to the village. Willie refuses it at first, Indy says that they have been given more food than the villagers get in a week. So, Willie's natural reaction is to give it back so the villagers can eat. Indy summarizes that she is just insulting [the villagers] and embarrassing him in the process. After Willie reluctantly eats, the village elder is a lot more friendly.

* ArmorPiercingSlap: After Indy got Willie out of the lava pit, Willie slaps him thinking he's still under the black sleep before Indy tells her it's really him.



** The Thuggee Cult died out in the 1850s, yet this film takes place in the 1930s and presents the arrival of the British Regiment arriving at the end as TheCavalry. Small wonder it was banned in India. The film is inspired by Film/GungaDin which likewise took place in an earlier period.
