Posts Tagged ‘Nigahen: Nagina Part II’

nigahencover.jpgI should have seen  Nagina (1986) first, which is reviewed very well here at the Bolly Blog, but what arrived in the mail was Nigahen: Nagina Part II (1989).  This crazy snake themed movie stars Sridevi, Sunny DeolAnupam Kher, and Pran.  As an extra bonus, occasionally we get to hear the magical voice of Amrish Puri from his look alike statue, but I bet in Nagina he was a lot more than a statue.  I especially enjoyed that Sridevi got to play her own daughter again in this film, just like she did in Lamhe. Stop over to Planet Bollybob for an excellent review of the film.

After the tragic deaths of his son, Ajit and daughter-in-law, Rajni, Raja Saheb decides to educate his grand-daughter, Neelam, in the city. Years later, Neelam has grown up and returns temporarily to their rural palatial home. Raja Saheb would like her to live there, and look after the business, but she refuses. Then she meets with Anand, and everything changes for her overnight. Both of them fall in love, and would like to get married. Anand is introduced to Raja Saheb, and Neelam is introduced to Anand’s mom, Shanti. Both approve of this couple and plans are set for the marriage to take place. When Neelam does not know is that Anand is not who he claims to be – but in reality was a snake kept in captivity by Tantrik Goraknath, who wants to possess a priceless diamond stone called “Mani”, and Neelam is the only one who knows it’s location. And Goraknath, unlike his mentor, Bhairavnath, has ensured that no one will stand in his way when he obtains the Mani. (by rAjOo at IMDB)

The snake seems to possess Sridevi’s Neelam by doing this:

Anupan’s character is a real jerk, and was the winner of the Best Male Wig Award, but he is no match for these powerful eyes:

Watch the snake woman Sridevi in “Khel Wohi Phir Aaj Ti Khela” with playback singer Kavita Krishnamurthy, and music by Laxmikant Pyarelal.  Is she more snake than woman, or more woman than snake?
