Kings of Horror by Sushmit Ghosh, Rintu Thomas
A family of 7 cinephile brothers worked in the underbelly of ‘80s Bollywood, to become India’s first and only genre filmmakers. Loathed by film purists and loved by fans who gave the Ramsay Brothers a cult following, the unique cinematic world they created remained unexplored, undervalued and unarchived. The Film brings together the audience of the Ramsay films – fans, doyens of modern Indian indie cinema and critics - to tell the hitherto untold story about the first family of Indian horror.
