Of course this had to happen.
The movie is about the Vengeance of Naagin, the Snake Woman when the legend of the Naagin has been spreading for over 4000 years ago. Finally in 2009 George States (Jeff Douchette), a ruthless American travels to the jungles of India and captures her mate. She transforms into a stunningly attractive woman (Mallika Sherawat) with absolutely no clue about contemporary civilization or the ways of mankind, and ventures into the city in desperate search for her lover with vengeance on her mind and venom in her fangs.
What follows is a chase at breakneck speed, with horrifying deaths, narrow escapes and special effects never seen before in India, as Vikram Gupta’s (Irrfan Khan) Clarice Starling chases down a beautiful sexy killer more dangerous, powerful and terrifying than Hannibal Lecter. This is India’s WEREWOLF, VAMPIRE, and HANNIBAL THE CANNIBAL, who has an axe to grind with the villainous human race who has dared to desecrate her environment and capture her mate.
(By the way, am I wrong or is that blurb making the case for cannibals as misunderstood victims of bigotry?)
You know what this reminds me of? Michael Bay’s planned remake of The Birds as an eco-thriller, specifically this classic quote by producer Cathy Schulman:
In the original, the birds just showed up, and it was kind of like, why are the birds here? This time, there’s a reason why they’re here and (people) have had something to do with it. There’s an environmental slant to what could create nature fighting back.
No words. Just… no words.
Except maybe this: Hisssss! Hissssssssssssss! Hissssssssssssssssss! Also.
