Vampiress Review: "Dracula 2012 (Aur Ek Dracula)"

The Gist: It's Dracula but in India instead of England and modern

Clarification: They're pretty true to the source material.  It's a Bollywood movie so it's extremely long and there are musical numbers.   Also the Christianity aspect has been removed and replaced with Hindu as is in most cases of vampire films in India.

Biggest Complaint: No turn for Meena in this one.  She goes temporarily evil but no fangs.

Female Vampire Factor: It's your standard fair for a Dracula story.  I do have to say, Dracula's 2nd female victim Taara in the film is seriously hot (Shraddha Das).
Towards the beginning of the film there's also a musical number featuring a number of female vampires.
If you know your Dracula then you know the other female vamp.  Lucy (Priya Nambiar) gets turned and you have your scene when she goes after a child.
Without Meena fanging out the bride scene is the best vampire scene in the film that only has a few scenes with female vampires.  I give it a Vampire Beauty Rating of 3 out of 5.  The three scenes in the film are good but you have to sit through a nearly two and a half hour film to see them.
