Ha ha hee hee ho ho, 27 July 2008
Author: Liakot Ali from London

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.
