Dracula (Amrit Pal) is on the prowl again, killing women all over the
city, including Baby, who has managed to escape the vampire repeatedly,
but whoever she told about it didn't believe her ... well, until she was
found dead. Now her brother Ratan vows revenge.
Somewhere else in town,
cop Kaushal tries to bust a drug kingpin. This kingpin's niece only slowly
comes to the realization that he might be a baddie, and might have had to
do something with the death of her family, and now she vows revenge.
the connection between these two stories?
Well, Dracula was actually
brought back to life by the drug kingpin and now serves as his slavew,
killing the girls the kingpin wants out of the way.
Kaushal, Kaushal's girlfriend Jyoti, and the kingpin's niece all unite,
force a confession out of the kingpin then shoot him dead, then go after
Dracula by using the girls as bait.
It all ends happily, with Dracula
providing the base for a campfire.
Dracula at his worst and
cheapest: The script of this film is a badly concieved collection of
standard situations, with several scenes remaining unconnected to the main
narrative, narrative threads dropped at random, and even the main
ploremaining vague. The cast's performances range from wooden to
uncomfortable in front of the camera. The sets, costumes and props are
uniformly of the cheap to home-made variety. Dracula is alternatively
shown as a cheaply concieved rubber-monster and an allegedly seductive guy
in a cheap top hat. And the directorial effort is best described as bland
to impersonal, with special attention given to the stock footage of a
thunderstorm edited into the proceedings every time Dracula appears - but
at least there is one hilarious stand-out scene of Dracula disco-dancing.
And as for the many song-and-dance routines interupting the proceedings
(commonplace in Hindi moives, as you might know) - they seem
inappropriate, but quality-wise, they're the best the film has to offer.
verdict: This is a movie you won't even enjoy if you're into bad movies -
but if you're a trash-movie enthusiast like me, you'll want to see it
anyways, no matter what I say, right?
