Nice present indeed, you'll enjoy :cheers:
I watched Purani Havelli recently and definitely liked it. My only complaint is the song and dance numbers. I know it is a part of their culture, but it sort of kills the mood for me when watching horror,and all of a sudden there is a song and dance routine. Other than that, I really like the couple Indian horror stuff.
What I do is I usually keep in mind they are "kitchy" films and if you do that the dance numbers fit in perfectly. If I watched these films as "straight" horror films they simply wouldn't work.

Ithink the song and dance numbers really add to the enjoyment of the experience,what would a bollywood horror film be without them?
