Who was Anita?

Was she the girl Neeraj loved?

It was only the other day that Neeraj proposed to her and she asked him to wait, so that she could get her father's consent. Next day, she herself rushed to him and took him to the Marriage Registrar. But just when she was to sign on the marriage licence, she submitted to her father's will and walked away. Since then Neeraj had been eager to meet her, but was denied the privilege of meeting her.

In desperation he left for Delhi, only to receive her letter summoning him to Bombay. And back in Bombay, he was confronted with the new that she had committed suicide.

What drove her to suicide? Neeraj was keen to find out. And the more he tried to unravel the mystery, the more baffling it became. First, he learnt that she committed suicide because of shame, as she was likely to become an unwed mother. Then, from the youth who was betrothed to her, he learnt that she was not a normal person and that she had a split personality. Perhaps, she was a Gypsy in her previous birth ! An unusual painter who specialised in modern art had met Anita as an awara girl and gave a lurid account of her bhaviour in a luxury liner on way to Hong Kong. And the Neeraj had the biggest surprise of his life when he had glimpse of Anita. When he followed her, she disappeared in a mysterious bungalow which on investigation by Detectives was found infested with ghosts !

The more Neeraj tried to forget her the more he was haunted by Anita. The mystery became more and more baffling and to find its solution you must see for yourself on the screen the story of the girl who was mystery and the mystery of a girl who was Anita, created by the Master of suspense Raj Khosla.
