Trivia

In its original release, all of the dance sequences were deleted because the censors felt that the women were shown to be too sexually provocative. See more »

Goofs

Several night scenes, especially the one near the end, were clearly recorded during daytime under bright sun. This fact was clearly noticeable by the shadows of people and trees, and intensity of light compared to the shadows. In order to make the time in such scenes appear to be night, the picture was drastically dimmed out. See more »

Not Bad......
19 August 2010 | by abdullah_zahid95See all my reviews

This Isn't as Bad As i thought it would be,But the fact that it's only a Pakistani version of Bram stoker's novel:Dracula,Rehan Pulls off an Amazing Performance,Though i thought it could've been better by editing out all the shocking stuff people refer to.

I don't Really Know Why Everybody Says:It's A Rip-off,Give It a chance,This Might Be because It was banned ON it's very first Premier,The first time i saw it was back in Pakistan,which I even thought It Would be awful,Due to the way how people Reacted to it in 1967,Overall,The fighting Sequences Needed to be Improved A little bit Back then.....
