Story of an unhappy ghost, Rewa (Kapadia), who haunts the palace of Raja Param Singh of Jasod which is now government property. Samir (Khanna), the curator of a government museum, is sent to salvage the valuables in the sealed palace where he encounters the ghost. Rewa’s ability to recreate the past brings alive her tragic story, making Samir determined to liberate her even at the risk of own life. Parapsychology is touted as proof of the reality of the encounter and his ‘Why me?’ is answered by a possible encounter in their previous lives. Rewa is finally liberated when, with his help, she completes the journey through a desert that claimed her life on earth. The film adds to the horror iconography (ruins, dungeons, suggestive music and fluttering pigeons) several sequences involving the tribal Banjaras, a community presented as practising witchcraft.
