Storyline

Suman lives a wealthy lifestyle along with her widower dad, Thakur Ranvir Singh, and an unmarried aunt, Damyanti, in a palatial house in Bombay. They are direct descendants of Raja Hariman Singh of Bijapur. When Ranvir finds out that Suman is in love with a middle-classed male, Sanjay, he expresses displeasure and forbids her to ever see him again. When she persists, he tells her that there is a curse on the entire family - a curse that was inflicted 200 years ago by a blood-thirsty, flesh-eating demon named Samri. This curse impacts only women in their family, who are hideously transformed after giving birth to their firstborn, and die a painful death. Treating this as mere superstitious, Suman and Sanjay, along with Sanjay's friend, Anand and his wife, Sapna, set out to Bijapur to unearth and put an end to this rumor - not knowing that soon they will resurrect a virtually indestructible Samri - who is out to kill the remainder of the Singh family before wrecking havoc on the region ...

Just Brilliant
2 December 2004 | by (Copenhagen , Denmark) – See all my reviews

This movie is just Brilliant, it has got everything from Horror to comedy to some soft sex scenes. Purana Mandir must be the most scary movie made in India ever. The actors has done some really good acting, and especially the Saamri guy has done it again. He is sure a good actor, and makes every little child and even grown up sleepless at nights, crying for their mothers to save them. The comedy part is Brilliant, Jagdeep is the Godfather in comedy. The actress is sure sexy, and she loves to show her body, even though its not even nice to look at...hehe

The Ramsay's has done a excellent camera work with some excellent story writing...to all you movie lovers, Purana Mandir is a must see, and don't watch it alone.
