Storyline

A dying Thakur Surjeet Singh bequeaths the entire estate to his son, Raghuvir, disowning the other, Dhurjan, the family's black sheep, who also indulges in black magic. The latter swears to use magical powers to usurp the estate, and even arranges the abduction of Raghuvir's daughters, Sapna and Aarti. Mangal and his men manage to apprehend Dhurjan, imprison him in a dungeon, and rescue Aarti. However, they are unable to locate Sapna, and Raghuvir gets killed. Before dying, he informs Mangal that Sapna has one of two pieces of a locket around her neck, while the other is on Aarti's, and when joined together will reveal the location of a treasure buried in a dungeon. 20 years later, Aarti and her boyfriend, Vijay, along with several others, will attempt to unearth this treasure - not realizing that they not only face betrayal from one of their own, but will also release and fall prey to an ageless and indestructible entity.

Ha ha hee hee ho ho
27 July 2008 | by (London) – See all my reviews

I remember my elder brother rented this movie out when i was about 7 years old and i saw it the first time. At first i thought wow what a great movie and that Bollywood can do horror movies. After watching it yesterday at a friends house who happens to own this, i thought wow. Wow, as in how could i ever like this film. Too be fair, for a 1985 movie it is quite good with a few entertaining scenes. The storyline is too long and unnecessary at times. The monster of the film is a black magic expert 25 years ago which was alright. But then the storyline goes all wrong when the two sisters who were separated at birth try to re unite. But it goes all wrong when one of them gets raped and murdered. The rapist some how finds the sister who is looking for her sister because of their fathers treasure. Anyway the point being, is that this film is boring. Its only fun when the monster appears. The actors are terrible.
