Dir: Kavi Raz
Starring: Satinder Sartaaj and Amanda Root
A film based on the life story of the last King of Punjab and his struggle under the British Raj to reclaim his faith and empire
This international historical drama tells the story of Duleep Singh, the last Maharajah of the Sikh Empire and his relationship with Queen Victoria, but it was poorly received with critics quick to point out its ‘slow and sluggish’ pace. Filming at Bewdley on the Severn Valley Railway took place in November 2014 with a train hauled by GWR 2800 Class 2-8-0 No.2857.
