The Bollywood version of 'A Nightmare on Elm Street'

How did I live so long without knowlege of this gem?

Recently I was watching a 5 hour documentary on the Freddy Kreuger franchise and they briefly mention that there was a Bollywood remake.

My jaw dropped to the floor.

Bollywood and Freddy? Those are my two favorite things!

Actually I had never seen a Bollywood film before so favorite might be a bit strong.

This movie ROCKS. You have singing, dancing, Freddy and a guy who pretends to be Michael Jackson.

The story is a pretty close remake of the original 'Nightmare' with some shots stolen from a few of the sequels. And Freddy has a glorious head of hair. Somewhat mullet-ish.

I wish every country had their own Freddy.
