** Also, it was the brainwashed kid Maharaja whipping Shorty; he could probably just swing it hard enough to sting, but not do any real damage unlike the Taskmaster, who whips Indy hard enough to leave bloody gashes all over his back.

* Short Round barely cries out when being whipped. Indy says he been on the street since the age of ''four''. It's not hard to imagine he had endured ''worse''.

* The infamous dinner scene in the palace. When I was younger, I thought it was just a typical, "Wow, foreign cultures have really weird diets". It wasn't until I was older that I thought it wasn't the regional culture that brought the menu to the palace. It's a sign that the corruption of the Thuggee cult is becoming more powerful, and that the local nobles are being corrupted by Mola Ram's efforts.

** Just what exactly happened to the prince ''after'' being brainwashed? Short Round snapped him out of it, then skedaddled with Willie and Indie. ''They left a child in the mine.''

* Why the stones worked in Indy's favor even though he didn't worship Shiva. The Shaman prayed to Shiva prior to their departure to Pankot to help guide them. So Shiva was on his side, whether he worshiped Shiva or not. As well as the fact that because Indy spoke Hindi, he knew how to invoke Shiva through the stones just by knowing the language. Whilst Mola Ram who was aware of both Shiva and Kali pretty much tarnished the former. Gods get more pissed off at believers tarnishing their truths than those that don't believe in them at all. In addition, Shiva specifically has been known to acknowledge worship even when it's inadvertent and the worshiper doesn't know or realize what he's doing: there is a Hindu story of a thief who receives Shiva's blessing after the thief spends the night hiding in a tree. The tree is a kind sacred to Shiva, and the thief spends the night idly pulling leaves from the tree and dropping them, where they land on a Shivalingam together with milk dripping from the thief's sack of food. If Shiva will acknowledge that, Indy's heartfelt denunciation of Mola Ram in Shiva's name would likely qualify as well.

** That and the possibility that he doesn't truly believe in the god he claims to worship and that he's simply using his self proclaimed belief to control the other Thugees. [[TruthInTelevision Like a real cult.]]

* In typical ''Indiana Jones'' ArtisticLicenceBiology fashion, we get the line, "Those aren't big birds, sweetheart, they're giant vampire bats." They're actually fruit bats; vampires are small, nocturnal, and South American, all of which the well-travelled Indy should know. But this is ''Indy'' telling ''Willie'', and she's been getting on his nerves for the last day and a half. He's winding her up.

** There's also the factor that he probably didn't rip Willie's heart out, because he wanted to do something more terrible to her. Such as making the brain washed Indy restrain her and lower her to the pit.

* The ArtisticLicense regarding Kali worship makes more sense when you consider that Mola Ram is blaspheming Hinduism in universe.

** Of course, Indy was too focused thinking about Willie.

* When the Title of the film appears, [[MsFanservice Willie]] is blocking it with her [[ItsAllAboutMe grandiose pose.]] This tells you [[TheLoad pretty much everything you need to know about how she will contribute during the film.]]

** Also, Indy embarrassed the family by injuring and nearly killing Kao Kan the previous night, which probably left them furious. Lao doesn't just want keep the diamond, he wants to pay back Indy by beating him, making sure he knows he beat him, and gloating about it to his face. Doesn't end well for him, of course.

** Also: this is 1935. As multiple people state in the movie, the Thuggee have been extinct for a hundred years at this point, plenty of time for their image to get distorted. So, picture this - Mola Ram decides to revive the Thuggee as his own personal cult, he bases it on the information that's available to him at the time, but because so much of that information is British colonial pop culture and propaganda, or influenced by it, the cult ends up looking more like that than like the reality.

* When you consider that being burned breaks the Black Sleep, think of the poor cultists who ended up in the lava pit. They presumably were broken out of their mind control just in time to fall into lava. It would be worse if the Thuggee slave driver also broke free of the black sleep once he started to get flattened by the rock crusher.
