Ssshhhh... Koi Hai (transl. "Ssshhhh... Someone's there") is an Indian horror thriller television anthology series created by Cinevistaas Limited and Contiloe Entertainment for Star Plus. The first season was created by them together, while later seasons were only created by Abhimanyu Raj Singh and were aired on Star Plus' sister channel Star One. The series which premiered on 27 July 2001, ran for three seasons ending on 16 May 2010.

Mamik Singh, Salil Ankola, Neha Devi Singh, Jiten Lalwani, Alex Upadhyay, Shahbaz Khan, Gufi Paintal, Shonali Malhotra, Reshma Khan, KK Goswami, Shiva Rindani, Vindu Dara Singh, Ronit Roy, Mac Mohan, Sunil Grover, Murali Sharma, Hrishikesh Pandey, Kamya Panjabi, Girish Jain and others have starred in the series. Shakti Anand, Indian TV actor, also worked in the first season and two episodes of the second season.[1]


Season 1 (2001–2004)[edit]

Initial episodes were the stories related from every aspect of horror and thrillers and in later episodes a ghostbuster was introduced named Vikraal played by Mamik Singh, who captures ghosts. Later again, the show takes turn over after the return of Mayakaal, who was the most powerful wizard and captured Vikraal. Guru Satyacharya observed that Vikraal could not handle the situation alone, and therefore decided to summon Mritunjay's daughter Bijli and Captain Kishan to help Vikraal. These three defeated Mayakaal. These ghostbusters' mission was to get rid of all the ghosts and evil spirits in the world. These three ghost-busters were called the Trikaal, who were always ready to fight evil powers. The Show used to run every Friday 10:00pm, later changed to 10:30pm on Star Plus prime Weekend. Later, the show had a re-run on Star Utsav which aired during 2008 at 10:00pm every Saturday and Sunday.[2]

Season 2 (2006–2009)[edit]

The second season was titled Sssshhh... Phir Koi Hai, (transl. Sssshhh... Someone's again there) which was a weekly series, airing Friday and Saturday nights.[3] On 6 July 2007, a special series named Sssshhh... Phir Koi Hai – Aryaamann of four episodes was telecast. In this series, Rahil Azam plays the role of Aryaamann as the ghost buster. His mission was to cast away all negative powers in the world. This special series ended on 27 July 2007.

In December 2007, the show returned with a biweekly telecast, i.e. Friday and Saturday, each story being split into two episodes.[4] In January 2009, the format of the series was changed. Each story was made to run for eight weeks. One of them was Intezar. The main cast included Gautam Rode, Divyanka Tripathi and Amrapali Gupta. The story was about two lovers Mohan and Radhika. Mohan was the son of a Thakur in Kishangarh who had gone abroad for studies. He comes back and meets Ambika (a witch). When he reaches his home, he meets Radhika (his lover). Ambika was hired by Dashrath Singh, a rival of Mohan's father. He wanted all of his property. Ambika plays such a game that Mohan and Radhika start disbelieving each other. Ambika kills the fathers of Mohan and Radhika, and the blame is pinned on Mohan and Radhika respectively. Mohan believes that Radhika killed his father and Radhika believes that Mohan killed her father. Ambika tricks Mohan and snatches all of his property, giving it to Dashrath Singh. Ambika wanted Mohan for her purpose but she start loving him. Mohan's mother asks Mohan to marry Ambika. At this time, Radhika gets to know the truth of Ambika and reveals the truth to Mohan. Ambika tricks Radhika and kills her. Before killing her, she makes her believe that Mohan killed her. After hearing about Radhika's death, Mohan jumps from a cliff.

A second janam (rebirth) is shown in which Mohan is born as Madhav and Radhika is born Meera, while Ambika just changes her name from Ambika to Kalika. Madhav is an engineer who has come to Kishangarh for making a dam. He gets flashes of his previous birth. He then meets Kalika and Kalika narrates her the story of Mohan, Radhika and Ambika in which she makes Madhav believe that Radhika was the witch but Madhav having flashes and knowing a little bit of truth doesn't believe her. Meera is the daughter of Durgadevi, the owner of the haveli (Dashrath Singh's daughter-in-law). She often gets possessed by the spirit of Radhika and forgets herself. Both of them don't know that they are reborn as Mohan and Radhika. One day both of them get to know the truth but the truth Meera learned it is a lie. She thinks that Mohan killed her. She then meets Madhav and tried to kill him but something stops her. Madhav tells her the real truth and they both unite. Madhav (Mohan) and Meera (Radhika) kill Ambika and they both get married at the end of the drama.

Season 3 (2010)[edit]

Sssshhh... Phir Koi Hai 3 aired on Friday and Saturday evenings, later shifting to every Saturday and Sunday on 10 April 2010.[5] This season had only one story.

The season introduces a very old story set in the past. It had also introduced a prophecy that was made centuries ago. It's the story of two brothers (Ajinkya and Veer), whose lives are destined to intertwine. Ajinkya has been in search of his mother for the past twenty years. Ajinkya and Veer join hands only to realize eventually they are the lost brothers – but with completely different motives. The powerful demon king – Vikrant destroys the much-feared demon-slayer – Saarthak. He tries to destroy his two sons also. Ajinkya manages to find his mother but is shocked to know she had never transformed. He manages to kill Vikrant, but that wouldn't be the end of him. He enters Vayika's body, who is injured in a struggle and in order to finish Vikrant completely, ends up killing Vayika.[better source needed]
