Monster fug!

I just finished "watching" the 1990 horror flick Bandh Darwaza. I use the term "watching" loosely, as what I was doing could more accurately be described as "rolling on the floor laughing my heiney off." I was going to write a post about it in my own blog, but I figure this is a good candidate for one of Steve's lengthy write-ups.

There's not much to this film besides being your basic creature feature, focusing on the terror wrought by a vampire. This vampire stands out in that he has his own "cult" worshipping him. Apparently his groupies have more in common than just a
misguided sense of religion (don't pray to a guy whose main weaknesses are daylight and water, yo). They also unite because of their bad fashion sense:

From left to right: S&M guy, Kimono guy, and Tiger girl. None of them gets a costume change.

But I guess this is par for the course, considering their fearless leader, Aruna Irani:

Even if these people aren't vampires themselves, their clothes are pretty monstrous.

ETA: Close-up of S&M guy's lederhosen for Maja. You can't take your eyes off him, can you? Or his facial hair, at least.

Love the nipple, dude. Love the nipple.

Omid Djalili in his younger years. He is to Hollywood and smelly villains as Tom Alter and Bob Christo are to Bollywood.

Thanks TB, I, umm, appreciate that ... *stares some more* Oh gawd o_O

Sakshi said... dare you criticize, it was indeed one of the best hindi horror flick ever.

But, yes...I agree with you on the nipple point. ;)

I'm new to this blog and already a fan. This is exactly why I won't watch any Bollywood that is over 5 years old.

To truly appreciate the brilliance of some of the older Bollywood films, one must look past the crappy costumes, crazy hair and plentiful man-nipple. Drinking helps.

latest anonymous - we are all about that. Have you tried our Karan Johar drinking game? (And in all seriousness, I think most of us love at least one patch or two of older Hindi films, each in her own way.)
