Storyline

Desperate brain cancer-ridden Caucasian, George States, with only six months to live, decides to capture a male cobra with hopes of obtaining 'Nagmani' from the shape shifting Naga female. For reasons that remain obscure throughout the film this will not only cure his brain cancer but also make him immortal. He hires workers in the jungles of Natchi, Tamil Nadu, who witness the intimacy of the cobras, capture the male allowing the female to escape. George then holds the male cobra in a glass cage hoping that the female cobra will attempt a rescue, and he will then release it in exchange for the Nagamani. The region experiences horror and religious awakening after the enraged female cobra, with the image of its oppressor in its eyes, sheds its snake-skin and takes on a female human form, setting out on its deadly mission of tracking down and destroying her mate's oppressor, and whoever else gets in her way whether involved or not.

Waste of time,don't watch it!
3 March 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This movie has nothing worth spending 1 hours and 30 minutes on, in fact it got unbearable after 30 minutes. The plot is poor and is taken from old Naagin movie which is way better than this. Visual effects used are unrealistic and cinematography is amateur at best. All the actors except Irfhan Khan have performed poorly and overacted in most of the parts.

It seems film makers assumed Mallika Sherawat is so sexy that if present her half naked whole of the movie the public will lure into watching it. Its overstretched the movie story gets finished in 30 minutes and rest 1 hour in between are just fillers.

If you are a Mallika Sheawat fan and have one and a half hours to waste watch it, there is nothing else in the movie expect her which is worth watching.
