Vaman, Professor. Professor Vaman was created by the Indian director Manibhai Vyas and appeared in the film Professor Vaman M.Sc. (1938).

Professor Vaman’s brother, Professor Harnam, uses the moon’s rays to create a formula which, when consumed by humans, turns them into maddened, murderous beast-men. Professor Vaman immediately recognizes the need for an antidote. Unfortunately, Professor Harnam’s daughter Anjani, while fighting with her lover, drinks the formula. Soon enough the murders begin. The police follow the trail of clues to a lovely adventuress and then to Professor Vaman, who is thrown in jail. He succeeds, at length, in breaking out of jail, creating the antidote, and marrying the adventuress.
