Best Bollywood Horror film, 11 June 2006
Author: Liakot Ali from London

Bollywood does not make a lot of great Horror films. In the 70s there was one Hit Jaani Dushman. If you see it now you'll see how outrageous it is. In the 80s there were the Ramsay Family, who have produced a few Horror films. Some include Purani mandir, Thakana and Dak Bangla. Veerana is no doubt their best work. After 90s there have been a few more Hit Horror Movies like Bhoot, Raaz, Raat, Vastu Shastra and Darna Mana Hai. In my opinion Veerana is better out of them all. Many people say Raaz was Great, but it was copy of Hollywood Movie what lies beneith. Veerana has its own storyline added with Indian culture. Black Magic and Witches. The witch in this movie looks a bit like a Vampire. For a 80s Bollywood film, this has some great Art added in. The way the monster is picturised is Impressive. The acting by all the Stars in this movie are Novice. The Key Girl in this movie named Jasmine who plays the daughter of the Thakur, is very Sexy and seducing. I would love to get naughty with her and who knows what happened to her after this film. It is very difficult to find this movie. I managed to Tape it when it came on Zee a decade ago. If you want to see a entertaining Horror Movie, this is the one.
