nobody does masala movies, romantic comedies and action dramas better than Indian cinema.
Although we have some great and awesome films to brag about, horror is a genre that is not the strongest in the Indian film industry. We all end up scouring Hollywood movies to quench our thirst for ghosts and fears.
This is because most Indian horror movies make us laughrather than haunt us.
However, there are some really scary movies made by Bollywood and southern cinema that gave us sleepless nights.
Recently, desis listed the few Bollywood and regional cinema horror movies that were so good and scary that they still have nightmares thinking about them.
