Khoonkhar Darinde is a 1999 Hindi horror film directed by Teerat Singh Johar and starring Shakti Kapoor, Sapna, Meghna, Anmol and Vinod Tripathi. The film is about a bank robber who cheats his co-conspirators out of their share of the loot and faces the wrath of a caveman and a lion-monster who kill his family and associates on a stormy night.
The film was originally titled Darinda and was released on 22 October 1999. It was a disaster at the box office and received negative reviews from critics and audiences alike. The film was later dubbed in Tamil as Khoonkhar Darinde and released in some theatres in South India.
Khoonkhar Darinde is one of the many low-budget horror films that Shakti Kapoor appeared in during the late 1990s and early 2000s. The film is known for its poor production values, illogical plot, cheesy dialogues and unintentional comedy. The film has gained a cult following among fans of so-bad-it's-good cinema and is often featured in lists of worst Indian horror films ever made.
If you are looking for a horror film that will scare you with its terrifying creatures and suspenseful atmosphere, Khoonkhar Darinde is not the one for you. But if you are looking for a horror film that will make you laugh with its absurdity and hilarity, Khoonkhar Darinde might be the perfect choice for you.
Khoonkhar Darinde is not the only horror film that Shakti Kapoor has been a part of. The veteran actor, who is known for his villainous and comic roles in mainstream Bollywood films, has also acted in several other horror films such as Khooni Murda, Khooni Panja, Khooni Raat, Khooni Shikanja and Khooni Ilaaka. Some of these films were also directed by Teerat Singh Johar, who seems to have a penchant for making horror films with Shakti Kapoor and the word \"khooni\" (meaning bloody or murderous) in their titles.
Shakti Kapoor has said in interviews that he enjoys doing horror films as they give him a chance to experiment with different characters and expressions. He has also said that he does not take these films seriously and does them for fun and money. He has admitted that some of these films are so bad that even he cannot watch them. He has also joked that he has scared more people with his horror films than with his villainous roles.
Khoonkhar Darinde and other horror films of Shakti Kapoor are available online on various platforms such as YouTube, Hotstar and Zee5. You can watch them at your own risk and discretion. You might find them scary, funny or boring, depending on your taste and mood. But one thing is for sure, you will not forget them easily.
