Trivia

Actor Ajit and Harmesh Malhotra were good friends, Malhotra used Ajit in every film he made. Ajit had already retired when Nagina was made, so Ajit's photo was kept in the film as Rishi Kapoor's father. Jaya Pradha's loss was Sridevi's gain. Nagina pt 2, Nigahen was made by the same maker and was released in 1989. A 3rd was to be made titled Naghme, but this was shelved. See more »

This movie is great.
5 December 2000 | by mackatrackSee all my reviews

This movie is great. It has a great story and it is one of the best Hindi movies of all time. It stars Sri Devi, Rishi Kapoor and Amrish Puri. Sri Devi does excellent acting and Amrish Puri portrays the sage perfectly. I think that everybody that likes Hindi movies should watch this.
