Storyline

Suraj is a bachelor and a leading industrialist, who is still recovering from being separated from his love, Sushma. He would like to build a hotel in the same region where he met Sushma for the first time, and asks his secretary, Lalwani, to make arrangements. Lalwani meets with real estate agent, Chhaganlal Patel, and they procure a plot on a scenic lot and start the construction. They are assisted by Chhagan's gorgeous secretary, Shabho; a lawyer, Kapoor; Judas a local resident; Mahendraprasad Gupta, a government official; and Gadhucha, a labor contractor. When the hotel is complete, Suraj is thrilled and he asks his friend, Vijay, to check it out before he gets there. Since Vijay is busy, he asks his brother, Sanjay, to check things out, and he would follow a day or two later. When Vijay and Suraj get there, they are quite pleased with the construction, and the locale. But find that Sanjay is missing. Efforts to locate him are in vain. Then one by one the people who helped build ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

cult classic!
2 January 2007 | by (Kenya) – See all my reviews

Along with guest house this was the finest the ramsays came up with. Navin Nischol decides to build a Hotel in some desolate hill station & sends ranjeet to look for a suitable piece of land. Ranjeet cons Father agostino out of a cemetery pretending it will be an orphan home & sells on the land to nischol. This forms the first hour of the movie, very interesting though no horror.

once the Hotel is built all mayhem ensues! While today the movie seems unrefined even tacky, it hold a certain nostalgic charm from a time when movies were so much fun.

A great way to spend an evening, if ur a freak like me!
