Story: Sheba (Sumita) leaves Kolkata to be the governess of Raykukhi only to find strange things happening there, starting from the weird station master (Shekhar Chattopadhyay) to the dubious kuthi driver, Ratan, and last but not the least people of Raykuthi. The master of Raykuthi, Shankar (Biswajeet) lives in the haunted kuthi with his only daughter (Debasree) and Manodadi (Chhayadevi). The only family friend Dr. Chowdhury (Satya Bandopadhyay) is the only visitor in the house. But, wait...someone else also strolls around the kuthi in the dark night mourning and singing the songs of warning. It turns out to Sheba that the little girl meets someone surreptitiously, believed to be her mother (Sandhya), who was supposedly killed by her husband Shankar. The house servant (Robi Ghosh) wants to tell her something, doesn't do so only in the fear of someone and being a poor helpless guy. Somebody else also visits the house, Satyabhushan (Ajitesh Bandopadhyay), the would-be-heir of Raykuthi rejected by his own father because of negligence of Satya towards taking care of his dad when he was dying, who is now revengeful to get his property back. Could Sheba be able to figure out what is happening at Raykuthi? Comments: A truly horror movie, brilliantly made by Tarun Majumdar only to make us wonder why there is dearth of good horror cum suspense thriller movie in Bengali cinema and movies in other languages (not to mention Bollywood). Stunning performance by everyone, the depth of the story and superb handling by the director made this movie "A Must Watch". Did I mention about the songs? Supernatural voice from Lata Mangeshkar is perfectly complementary. How come you forget those awesome numbers? Debasree Roy appears as a little girl in this movie to show her acting, and dancing talent to the tune from Asha Bhosle.
