Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom is a 1984 American action-adventure film directed by Steven Spielberg. It is the second installment in the Indiana Jones franchise, a prequel to the 1981 film Raiders of the Lost Ark, featuring Harrison Ford reprising his role as the title character and the second film to use THX technology after Return of the Jedi. After arriving in India, Indiana Jones is asked by desperate villagers to find a mystical stone and rescue their children from a Thuggee cult practicing child slavery, black magic and ritualistic human sacrifice in honor of the goddess Kali.
Not wishing to feature the Nazis as the villains again, George Lucas, executive producer and co-writer, decided to regard this film as a prequel. Three plot devices were rejected before Lucas wrote a film treatment that resembled the final storyline. Lawrence Kasdan, Lucas’s collaborator on Raiders of the Lost Ark, turned down the offer to write the script, and Willard Huyck and Gloria Katz were hired as his replacements, who had previously worked with Lucas on American Graffiti.

Temple of Doom was released on May 23, 1984 in America, accumulating a record-breaking $45.7 million in its first week. The film went on to gross $333.1 million worldwide, with $180 million in North America and $153.1 million in other markets. The film had the highest opening weekend of 1984, and was that year’s highest-grossing film (third in North America, behind Beverly Hills Cop and Ghostbusters). It was also the tenth highest-grossing film of all time during its release. It sold an estimated 53,532,800 tickets in the United States.
Roger Ebert gave the film a perfect four-star rating, calling it “the most cheerfully exciting, bizarre, goofy, romantic adventure movie since Raiders, and it is high praise to say that it’s not so much a sequel as an equal. It’s quite an experience.” Vincent Canby felt the film was “too shapeless to be the fun that Raiders is, but shape may be beside the point. Old-time, 15-part movie serials didn’t have shape. They just went on and on and on, which is what Temple of Doom does with humor and technical invention.” Neal Gabler commented that “I think in some ways, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom was better than Raiders of the Lost Ark. In some ways it was less. In sum total, I’d have to say I enjoyed it more. That doesn’t mean it’s better necessarily, but I got more enjoyment out of it.” Colin Covert of the Star Tribune called the film “sillier, darkly violent and a bit dumbed down, but still great fun.” Pauline Kael, writing in The New Yorker, said that “nobody has ever fused thrills and laughter in quite the way that [Spielberg] does here” and claimed that the movie was “the most sheerly pleasurable physical comedy I’ve seen in years.”
The depiction of Indian culture caused controversy and brought it to the attention of India’s censors, who placed a temporary ban on it as it did not open in theaters. The film was later released when it came out on home video. The depiction of Indian cuisine was heavily criticized, as dishes such as baby snakes, eyeball soup, beetles, and chilled monkey brains are not Indian foods. Shashi Tharoor and Yvette Rosser have criticized the film for its portrayal of India, with Rosser writing ” seems to have been taken as a valid portrayal of India by many teachers, since a large number of students surveyed complained that teachers referred to the eating of monkey brains.”
Roshan Seth, who played Chattar Lal, mentioned that the banquet scene was a joke that went wrong, saying, “Steven intended it as a joke, the joke being that Indians were so smart that they knew all Westerners think that Indians eat cockroaches, so they served them what they expected. The joke was too subtle for that film.” In the script, a brief scene which did not make it into the film had Indiana Jones remarking “even if they were trying to scare us away, a devout Hindu would never touch meat. Makes you wonder what these people are …”, a hint that something was amiss in the palace.
