|Edited by||Subrata Roy|
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 Bhut Bhabishyat.(initially four stories were supposed to be filmed, but the fourth one, Lucknowe Duel was dropped later to avoid the length).
- "Anathbabur Bhoy" is about a ghost-hunter Anathbandhu Mitra and his uncanny experiences in a haunted house in Birbhum.
- "Brown Saheber Bari" is about "Simon", a mysterious entity who haunts a dilapidated cottage in Kalimpong.
- "Bhoot Bhobishyot" is based on a peculiar relationship between a writer and a friendly 19th century ghost. It is a light-hearted story with a memorable twist at the end of it all.
