Her beau Sidhartha asks her to come to the fort of Dhulibari, where she faces a horrible experience. Learning the history from an aged servant maid Annadama, Arundhati comes to know that she is a look alike of her great grandmother Monima. Monima was an expert in painting, dancing and fighting. She had an elder sister who was married off to Rajguru’s son Rudra. Rudra a womaniser used to rape the women he liked and kill those who objected. Monima's sister committed suicide and the people of Dhulibari thrashed Rudra severely and tied him to his horse when they got the approval from Monima and her father. Though Dhulibari celebrated his death, he was actually saved by Aghoras, who served the devils. Rudra mastered the tantrik arts and entered Dhulibari fort to take revenge. Monima who had learnt a special dance, cut off his tongue and pinned his hands at one go through her dance. She spared him to prevent him from becoming a 'pretatma'. Rudra was buried alive in a tomb and powerful 'yantras' with inscriptions from Vedas and Holy Scriptures were put on it to prevent the 'pretatma' from coming out. After this revelation through flashback, Arundhati’s cousine in a trance, unknowingly breaks the tomb and releases the 'pretatma'. The revenge drama ensues again. Fakirbaba who treats patients through sorcery tells her that she is none other than Monima and asks her to fight Rudra. From the portrait of Monima, Arundhati comes to know that her great grandmother had prepared a 'weapon' with her own bones and had kept it with some tribals. Fakirbaba and Arundhati proceed to pursue the weapon and in this process Fakirbaba meets with an accident. Arundhati left with no option returns to the fort to get herself raped to prevent the death of her family members. Fakirbaba collects the weapon and gives it to Arundhati and in the climax Rudra dies in the hands of Arundhati.
