Featuring a star-studded cast including Jeetendra, Sunil Dutt, Reena Roy and Rekha, Nagin was a runaway box-office success. It follows the bloody revenge of a female ichandani (shapeshifting) snake against a group of men who kill her mate on the night on which their love was to be consummated. Jetindra and Reena Roy play the 100-year-old snakes that can take human form. Nagin remakes the Western classic rape-revenge thriller with a uniquely Indian twist.
