Sanjeev Kumar had liked his role in this film and he was appreciated. This was the second film he played the leader Thakur, Sholay being the first. Jaani Dushman is the only film in which Sanjeev Kumar and filmaker Rajkumar Kohli came together. See more »
A so-bad-it's-good flick for those who are interested in viewing a real Hindi horror classic.
Jaani Dushman is worth watching because: a) It was a defining moment in the careers of the Ramsay Brother, some of the most prolific low budget horror filmmakers the subcontinent's ever seen. b) Though he's uncredited (on the VCD/DVD packaging at least), the monster is played by Amrit Puri, one of the epitomes of the Bollywood villain, best known in India for his role as Mugambo in Mr. India (HAIL MUGAMBO!), and in the West for his part in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. c) In its own endearingly cheap way, it explores themes of visuality and male violence.
Okay, c) may be hard to swallow.
Indian villain aficionados will enjoy Amrit Puri at his campy finest, and Western viewers will get a laugh out of the mind-boggling editing and semi-sensical storyline.
Purana Mandir is the sequel.
