"She's sexy… venomous… and she'll swallow you whole…"
The first thing we see is a disclaimer stating that all of the snakes in the film are not real, but nobody ever watches one of these Indian Nagin films for the snakes, do they? It's all about a beautiful woman who turns into a snake, and the music and dance, and in this film, the blood and gore.
A Nagin is a goddess that takes on the form of a snake, usually a King Cobra - a Snake Woman. There have been several other Bollywood films made about them. This one is played by Bollywood Bombshell Mallika Sherawat. She loves to dance because snakes are always charmed by music, right? There's a plot about a horrible American (and there are no villians more horrible than ugly Americans in Bollywood films) who kidnaps the male cobra and wants to catch her, but that's not as important here as the sexy snake woman. We get to watch her wriggle naked up a street lamp to sleep at night like a stripper pole dancing. When she sheds her skin, it's more like a strip tease, and there's even a sexy scene with her Nagini, the male cobra, while she's still a woman. But when she gets angry, the makeup comes off and she turns back into a hideous snake monster, brutally killing all the wife-beaters and rapists she meets. Part teen porn, part female revenge fantasy, part religious relationship drama (I left that boring part out) this one has something for the whole family.
