Purana Mandir

Synopsis: Suman lives a wealthy lifestyle along with her widower dad, Thakur Ranvir Singh, and an unmarried aunt, Damyanti, in a palatial house in Bombay. They are direct descendants of Raja Hariman Singh of Bijapur. When Ranvir finds out that Suman is in love with a middle-classed male, Sanjay, 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. 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 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 a

200 years ago Bijapur Sultanate

was ruled by Raja Hari Man Singh

In those days the fear of ghosts and

spirits prevailed in the hearts of people

The most feared demon of all

was called Saamri

One day Raja Man Singh was traveling

with his daughter towards Bijapur...

...when his royal chariot broke down

How long will it take?

Only a little while, sire

- Where has Rupali gone?

- She was just here

Rupali, Rupali!


What's she thinking of?

This is Saamri's land!

Don't just look at me!

Go and find her! Go!


Cut him down!

Kill him!

Find him, find him!

That demon came this way


This royal proclamation

of Mughal King Hari Man Singh...

...states that Saamri

using his satanic powers...

...has created terror

in the state of Bijapur

The accusation is that you unrobed

young married women...

...and violated their honor

You are accused that

to slake your satanic thirst...

...you mercilessly killed

young and innocent children...

...and sucked their blood

You have fallen so low

from the human level...

...that even Satan would shun you

To strengthen your evil powers

you opened graves...

...took out corpses...


...and ate them

O, King,

destroy this creature now!

No! Entomb him in the wall


I believe that this monster

should be purged in pure fire...

...and thus be turned

forever into ashes

No, holy man

This demon's head

will be separated from his body

The body will be buried

in the ruins behind this temple

And his head...

...will remain under guard

in my palace, far from here

That way, his head and his body

will never be joined together

I beg you, my lord, guard the head

with this holy trident of Shiva

Thus will all this demon's powers

be rendered ineffective

Hari Man Singh...

...I curse you!

As long as my head and body

remain apart...

...all your female heirs

will die horribly in child birth

And the day my head and body

are joined again...

...will be the end of your dynasty!

And so Hari Man Singh cut off

the head of that demon...

...and kept it apart from the body

The body was buried in the ruins

behind Shankar's Palighat temple.

The demon's head was put

in a trunk fastened with chains

Raja Hari Singh secured that trunk

in the dungeon of his palace

God Shiva's holy trident

was put on top of the trunk

A wall was built across the door

of the dungeon...

...and the severed head

was hidden from the eyes of the world

A painting of Hari Man Singh

was hung on the door

And so the stories

of Saamri's evil faded...

...into the darkness of the dungeon

The river of time carried off

the main players

The faces of Sher Khan,

Rajguru Balbir Singh and all the rest...

...became lost

in the mists of time

The flame of Hari Singh's life

was extinguished

After him the reins of the state fell

to Prithipal Singh

and then in the course of time,

Raja Ajit Singh

After him, Thakur Ranbhir Singh

sat on the throne

The dusts of time settled

over the ancient palace...

...and it became forgotten about

The pulse of life left the palace area

and moved to the city

This is the last remaining heir

of Hari Man Singh - Ranbir Singh

A grand and important man,

even today

But the fear of Saamri still prevails

in his heart and mind

Sir, these papers need

your signature

Give me a pen

Have you paid the sawmills?

Brother, dear


has Suman left for college?

Really papa,

what kind of talk is that?

I've never done that

and I'm not going to start now

And that is why I have been

rushing home

I knew my little doll

would be waiting for me
