Alas! This wasn't a sleeper hit as Talwar expected it to be.
18 March 2013 | by (Port Blair) – See all my reviews

Ha ha, I remember I was watching 'Wohi Bhayanak Raat'. Damn it, Vinod Talwar didn't even show a little sense while behaving like a copy cat only to steal most of the elements from Tom Holland's 1985 comedy horror cult-classic and a sleeper hit 'Fright Night'.

What the heck! Rakesh Bedi (The dumb litterbug) assumed Evil Ed Thompson's role. Can't even compare the talents of Stephen Geofferys and Rakesh Bedi. Though the latter never went gay!

Kiran Kumar (The unholy Pathan) dressed up as a Vampire with long fangs and ghastly face. I think Chris Sarandon would shoot himself after seeing his legendary character of Jerry Dandridge being spoiled in such a ruthless and insensible way!

Rohan Kapoor (Who nobody likes except for the fact that he is the son of seasoned multilingual singer Mahendra Kapoor) takes the role of William Ragsdale and plays 'Charlie Brewster'. Ah..come on! Gimme a break!

Yunus Parvez (The fat man of Hiroshima) plays Rody McDowall's character of Peter Vincent, the GREAT VAMPIRE KILLER, who hosted 'FRIGHT NIGHT' show! Yunus tries to look sensible and genuine in all the ways but fails to do so. Instead somebody rapes him in the middle of WOHI BHAYANAK RAAT. Surely, the moment Yunus got raped, the night would have become WOHI BHAYANAK RAAT (or The Same Terrible Night) for him.

Neeta Puri plays 'Amy' in this movie. I can't even think about putting Amanda Bearse and Neeta Puri under the same scale. She has struggled hard to throw her charms onto the viewers but I feel that all her efforts went in vain.

Despite being a shameless bastardized and an ugly version of Fright Night, Wohi Bhayanak Raat has some features of its own and some of the scenes were quiet intense and capturing.

P.Chandrakumar had already adapted 'Fright Night' in his 'Bungalow No. 666', but as the lovers of Bollywood B-horror may know, both the adaptations were lame and bad in their own right. I really feel sad about the fate of Bollywood horror in the late 80s and early 90s. People who have an affinity to the North American and Italian cinema may reprimand directors like Joe D'Amato and Jesus Franco for bringing out the nastiest horror films, but I assure you all that directors like Vinod Talwar, Mohan Bhakri, Jeetu and R. Mittal are miles ahead of the West, when it comes to idiocy.
