Nagin (transl. Female Serpent) is a 1976 Hindi-language horror film, produced and directed by Rajkumar Kohli under the Shankar Movies banner. It stars Reena Roy in the titular role alongside an ensemble cast including Sunil Dutt, Feroz Khan, Jeetendra, Sanjay Khan, Rekha, Mumtaz, Vinod Mehra, Yogeeta Bali, Kabir Bedi, Anil Dhawan and its music was composed by Laxmikant Pyarelal. Despite of being a woman-centric film, it was a blockbuster at the box office and the highest-grossing film of 1976. Following the success of the film, the lead actress Reena Roy received widespread attention and popularity.[1]

It was inspired by François Truffaut's French film The Bride Wore Black which was based on Cornell Woolrich's novel of the same name.[2] The film was later remade in Tamil with Sripriya playing Nagin in the film Neeya?.
