The only film Sridevi did with Shatrughan Singha, Sherni.
Directed by Harmesh Malhotra (of Nagina fame), this wasn't much of a movie. The low-budget and faulty direction, writing, editing, mediocre music... is all too apparent.
Here is a fine example how Sridevi was often better than the movie she was in. A polished diamond set on a shoe-string.
Based loosely on the crime spree of Phoolan Devi (Shekhar Kapoor went on to make the faultless, fearless Bandit Queen), the movie isn't great by any measure. Srdevi's efforts are valiant however... Oh well.
BTW one look at the posters and clearly you know who was the biggest star at the time of the film's release.
