Thakur Ranvir Singh is a wealthy man living with his only daughter, Suman, in Bombay. They are the direct descendants of Raja Hariman Singh of Bijapur.
When Ranvir finds out that Suman is in love with Sanjay, a middle-class boy, he expresses displeasure and forbids her to ever see him again. When she persists, he tells her that there is a curse on the entire family, a curse that was inflicted 200 years ago by a blood-thirsty, flesh-eating demon named Samri.
This curse affects only women in their family, who are hideously transformed after giving birth to their firstborn, and die a painful death. Treating this as mere superstitious, Suman and Sanjay, along with Sanjay's friend, Anand,and his wife, Sapna, set out to Bijapur to unearth and put an end to this rumor. But soon mysterious and sinister events leads the group into resurrecting Samri.
