Released the same year as director Dwight Little’s other 1988 flick HALLOWEEN 4, this action-packed romp features a great performance by legendary Tamil megastar Rajinikanth (ROBOT).
A priceless stolen ruby ends up in the possession of two coiffed American newlyweds. Their honeymoon in India turns wild as they become the target of international fence Van Hoeven and his goons. When Van Hoeven ransoms the American woman for the jewel, the husband joins forces with a cabby / dormant stunt driver (Rajinikanth) to rescue his bride.
