Movie Info

The popular British comedy series carries on into Victorian era India. Locals suspect that the fierce Scottish Devils actually wear underwear under their kilts. Sir Sidney Ruff-Diamond (Sidney James) and his sexpot wife (Joan Sims) are the British aristocrats who govern the region. Comedy ensues when the local Khasi of Kalabar (Kenneth Williams) launches an attack to drive the occupied army from the homeland. As the Governmental mansion is under fierce attack, the duo calmly hosts a dinner party for their guests as the combat fails to distract the group. Instead of Gunga Din there is Bungdit Din and the lampoons and laughs continue for every minute in this slapstick comedy feature.more

Audience Reviews for Carry On...Up the Khyber

One of the more funny Carry Ons with Kenneth Williams on top form.

Another of the better Carry Ons, with Roy Castle showing admirable restraint, playing it totally deadpan in an amusing send-up of Zulu/The Four Feathers and their ilk.
