PlotEdit

The film starts with Tarinikhuro or Tarinicharan Banerjee, one of Satyajit Ray's characters, telling some boys from his fanclub about ghosts. In the first and second stories the ghosts he talks about were Satyajit Ray's Anath Babur Bhoy and Brown Saheber Bari. The last one was Sharadindu Bandyopadhyay’s Bhoot Bhobishyot. (Initially four stories were supposed to be filmed, but the fourth one, Lucknow-er Duel was dropped later to avoid the length).[3]

Anathbabur BhoyEdit

Anathbabur Bhoy revolves around the story of Anathbondhu Mitra, who is a ghost hunter. he, along with his friend, Sitesh, narrate their experience regarding a dilapidated haunted house, "Haldar Bari" (Bengali: হালদার বাড়ি).

Brown Saheber BariEdit
