"Bees Sal Baad" is a story of love and sacrifice. Suraj and Nisha are the lovers who lie in Banjara Basti. They get married. As per the customs amongst the Banjaras, the married, Suraj, and Nisha go to Haveli to seek the blessings of the Thakur. As they reach the Haveli, Thakur pretends to get a heart attack. Suraj rushes to call for a doctor and is beaten to death on the way and here in the haveli, Thakur tries to rape Nisha who, somehow, escapes from the clutches of his lust and commits suicide.

And after 20 (twenty) years, Kiran the daughter of Thakur returns from London accompanied by Suraj with whom she is married. Thakur is surprised to know that his son-in-law is the one who had been a lover of Nisha. Afterward, Thakur is perplexed to find the spirit of Nisha in this haveli. The spirit threatens Thakur of taking away his son-in-law.

Now there begins the battle of love and rights between Kiran and Nisha. Kiran calls for a Tantrik Baba. The Tantrik Baba finds a scar on the foot of Suraj and Kiran is told that some spirit is dwelling in this Haveli who intends to take away her husband. Tantrik assures Kiran to save her husband from the spirit, but before that the spirit kills him. In desperation, when Thakur decides to send Kiran and Suraj to London, the spirit in retaliation curses him of Leprosy.

Now Suraj and Kiran along with Thakur seek the shelter of Bhawani Baba, a Saint. Bhawani Baba gives one Taveez to each of them. Thakur wears the Taveez and leprosy disappears.

Finding herself helpless, Kiran decides to go to the Temple of goddess Vishnu Devi and begs for the long life of her husband, Suraj. Who could succeed? Kiran or Nisha?

For that is the film "BEES SAAL BAAD".
