Urmila Matondkar starer Kaun may not be a cult Bollywood classic but it is among those valuable Hindi films that had my eyes. Since childhood, I have been fascinated towards thriller-horrors, though didn’t know what were they called in that period of my life.
I watched Kaun when I was too young, so last year I watched it again and it was up to my expectations. Having said that, let’s being the analysis of the movie.
