Movie Info

The Black Prince is a tragic, yet fascinating true story about the last King of the mighty Kingdom of Punjab, Maharaja Duleep Singh. The King, Maharaja Duleep Singh, was placed on the throne at the age of five only to be robbed of his throne by a bloody treason at the hands of trusted courtiers. He was then torn from his mother and taken to England by the British at age fifteen. While in England, he was introduced to Queen Victoria, who took an immediate liking to him, calling him "The Black Prince". He was indoctrinated into Christianity and baptized, changing his life forever. Meeting his mother again after thirteen years, the Maharaja awakens to the realities of his former life in Punjab. He then begins the arduous journey to regain all that was lost and re-embrace the faith of his birth, Sikhism. Torn between his two worlds, The Black Prince begins a lifelong struggle to regain his Kingdom. It takes him on an extraordinary journey across the world.

This is one of those cases where the material behind a film turns out to be much more interesting than the film itself.

July 19, 2017 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…

The Black Prince never strikes a dramatic flow as the Maharajah's attempts to do good for his homeland fall flat time and time again, preventing any build up.
