The Chess Players is a historical comedy drama that was released in 1977. The film looks at the head of the last Indian territory to not fall under the control of the British. The British send an envoy to bring the area into their control through the same methods that they took over much of India. The envoy is able to slowly bring the territory under his control, and is able to slowly manipulate the lower levels of government. Meanwhile, the rulers of the territory do nothing to stop this, and instead spend their time playing chess and composing poems.
