This review is from: The Chess Players [DVD] (DVD)The story is set in 19th century India against the background of the British rule and their craving political and economic interests. Two long-time Indian friends are devoted chess players and they never miss an opportunity to get together in order to pay tribute to their passion. In fact, their mutual infatuation with the play leads them to not only withdraw from close and pressing Indian conflicts and from the merciless manoeuvres of the British governing body trying to dethrone the local maharaja, but it leaves them at loss with the changes in their own households. The story ends with a charming pirouette.
