Storyline

After the passing away of her parents, Anita Kumar now lives with her paternal uncle, Kumar; his wife, Seema; and Seema's brother, Vikram. The family's business is taken over by Kumar, who uses some money to buy an old mansion deep in the countryside of Rana. Seema would like Anita to marry her brother, but Anita has already given her heart to Sunil, who runs a photo studio and is poor. This does not go over well with the Kumars, and they forbid her to see Sunil anymore. Then, when Kumar goes to take possession of the mansion, Anita's friends Shobha and Anand ask her if they can visit the mansion and also invite Sunil secretly. They also invite several other friends, including Sunil's assistant Manghu and travel via a bus. What the group does not know that is the mansion holds an evil secret, and that beneath the mansion, locked in a dungeon by its very own biological father, lies a monster, evil beyond imagination--and its primary diet is human meat!!

Ramsay Family are genius
27 July 2008 | by (London) – See all my reviews

I remember seeing this movie on Zee TV late night long time a go. The Ramsay family have made many horror movies in Bollywood. Some were bad, some were good but the best was Veerana. Anyway, Lets talk about Purana Haveli which is another decent attempt at a horror movie. The movie has a monster living in this house who kills people entering. It stars a bunch of low grade actors and actresses who decide to go to the house for some reason. One by one they start to die by the evil monster hiding in the house. The only great thing about this movie is the director who have given Bollywood Horror. There is another storyline in the movie about the lust one of the bad guys have in this movie for one of the girls. If you want to see some great horror movie watch Kama Sutra or Veerana.
