Bond has never been so exotic since Sean Connery in Dr No. An exotic and grand location like India plays as the backdrop of some of the most memorable scenes and stunts in Bond movie history. Most people overlook the fact that there has never been such a collection of Bond girls in any Bond film. We see Roger Morre travel to India, where he tries to locate a rare Faberge egg and unravels a Russian (typical!)plot to detonate a bomb which would cause world chaos. Maud Adams, the only woman to ever star in two Bond films is the leading lady, the aptly named Octopussy, whose organisation of highly trained women only carry out assignments as daring as Bond's own. Tennis'Davis Cup champion Vijay Kumar plays 'our man in' India, Bond's contact Vijay. The henchman in this film is well known to asians around the world as Kabir Bedi, who has starred in some 79(!) films. He is very popular in Italy and has made many notable appearances on terrestial television. This is definantly the best Bond film. I met Maud Adams and she tells me other Bond girls envy her for making a Bond film that other Bond girls envy. She is without the doubt the most gorgeous Bond woman there has ever been. Forget the new Bond Brosnan. They are trying to make him so modern, that he has lost the charm, panache and hold on natural locations that Bond used to have. This is a must for all Bond fans!!!
