Purana Mandir (1984)
(Released: Oct 19, 1984)
Suman (Arti Gupta) lives a wealthy lifestyle along with her widower dad, Thakur Ranvir Singh (Pradeep Kumar), and an unmarried aunt, Damyanti (Ashalata), in a palatial house in Bombay. They are direct descendants of Raja Hariman Singh (Trilok Kapoor) of Bijapur. When Ranvir finds out that Suman is in love with a middle-classed male, Sanjay (Mohnish Bahl), he expresses displeasure and forbids her to ever see him again. When she persists, he tells her that there is a curse on the entire family - a curse that was inflicted 200 years ago by a blood-thirsty, flesh-eating demon named Samri (Ajay Agarwal). This curse impacts only women in their family, who are hideously transformed after giving birth to their firstborn, and die a painful death. Treating this as mere superstitious, Suman and Sanjay, along with Sanjay's friend, Anand (Puneet Issar) and his wife, Sapna, set out to Bijapur to unearth and put an end to this rumor - not knowing that soon they will resurrect a virtually indestructible Samri - who is out to kill the remainder of the Singh family before wrecking havoc on the region and it's inhabitants.
