Hisssss – Here Come the Naagin!

Shivering through a 1954 film of the similar name Nagin was the extraordinarily beautiful Vyjayanthimala. The film also starred Pradeep Kumar and was much lighter than most movies in the genre, zig-zagging from song to song in a joyous three hours of extravagation. This one’s a bit of a cheat actually because it’s not really about snake gods at all but is really a Romeo-and-Juliet type story about two adivasi (or native) tribes, one of whom are called the Nagi, thus making Vyjayanthimala a Nagin!!
