Ramsay Family are genius, 27 July 2008
Author: Liakot Ali from London

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.
