The Pirates of Malaysia is the story of a Malaysian rebel, Sandokan, who, with his group of renegades, tries to thwart an evil British general from forcing the good Sultan Hassim to resign in favor of the Imperial crown.
The cruel Lord James Guillonk, faithful of Queen Victoria, is the governor of the territories of Borneo and Malaysia. His archenemy is the Indian pirate Sandokan, who along with his "tigers" delivers continuous attacks against British armies.
This time, Sandokan collides again with the governor, because Guillonk is moving hunt against Tremal-Naik, a Hindu escaped by controls of English policy, who is in search of his lost love. Indeed, Tremal-Naik talks to Sandokan of a secret Hindù sect that worships the bloody goddess Kali. These fanatics are the thugs.
