Vikram Chauhan and his friend Arun go out for hunting expedition on a moonless night.
It's a windy night and it's a creepy forest. And the ghost of a man eating tiger awaits them.
Loosely but efficiently adapted from American Werewolf in London. Junoon boasts of good production values and a strong cast for a movie of the early 90's.
Vishesh Films usually deliver films of good quality and with Mahesh Bhatt at the helm of Junoon, it turns out to be a very good flick.
The pace and rhythm in the second half are relentless and it certainly ranks as one of the best horror movies that Bollywood has churned out.
The special effects are noteworthy for a Hindi film of that period. It is one of the first Indian venture to hire a crew of well known foreign technicians and make-up artists for the special effects and these still look good for today's standards. They shot a lot of the scenes that needed special effects at Pinewood Studios, London.
Rahul Roy's first transformation into a tiger still looks scary.
This easily ranks as Roy's best career best performance. You can see he whole heartedly digs his teeth into the role. He looks handsome, mysterious and scary and seems to have put his heart into the performance.
Amongst the rest of the cast, Tom Alter, Homi Wadia and Mushtaq Khan are effective.
The film has a couple of good songs from duo Nadeem-Shravan. The background music score by Viju Shah is another plus point of the film.
Altogether, it makes a very good watch. Gripping, adventurous and scary. Recommended.
