    Well written. The sort of baked-in racist content that you comment on becomes a part of the landscape and can often be sensed as reality when not pointed out.

    I had not heard the theory that the thuggee never existed.

    Though this film is based on a novel, that novel in turn was inspired by a real person: William Henry Sleeman. He did capture a thug and used info from informers he caught to suppress them, but (as you might guess) not by pretending to be one himself.
