Thakur Jwala Prasad is a wealthy bachelor living in a mansion; he gets marry to the girl of his dreams but finds her in the companion of her lover. He then turns into a monstrous creature killing both his wife and her male lover. This curse does not end here as the monster continues to terrorize the brides of that community; first by abducting them and then take them to an underground cave to kill them. The men of this community are clueless of this killer and arrange encounters to locate him but this does not help and even if they manage to locate this invincible evil force and kill him it will simply re-possess the body of the killer and continue on his rampage.

70's horror
17 March 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Rajkumar Kohli made several horror films in 70's and 80's which were hits After NAGIN(1976) Rajkumar Kohli came back with another horror film JAANI DUSHMAN(1979)

JAANI DUSHMAN is in tradition of Ramsays a complete horror film it deals with murders of brides on their wedding day

Suspense is maintained till the end who is the culprit

The film also has a love triangle, songs, dances and some futile comedy forced in

The film manages to scare the daylights in parts but tends to drag and at times it looks foolhardy too

The climax is good, the suspense is unveiled though the culmination of the real Ghost is left unsolved

Direction by Rajkumar Kohli is decent Music is okay

Amongst actors Sanjeev Kumar excels in his role as usual Sunil Dutt is good while Shatrughan Sinha too does a good job Rekha is passable, Bhairavi Goswami and Reena Roy are okay Amrish Puri is good while Raza Murad is as usual
