Kabir Walia (Ali Fazal), is a novelist whose failed career and relationship with Simran (Debina Bonnerjee) make him to move to Kashmir in search of an inspirational story. During his journey, he stops at a guesthouse run by the beautiful but mysterious Meera Sharma (Sapna Pabbi). Meera is married to Jaidev Dhanrajgir (Gurmeet Chaudhary), an ill man confined to his bed. On his first night there, Kabir sees strange apparitions. He becomes attracted to Meera and finds out that she has not left the house for two years.
Kabir, now in love with her, tries to take her away from the house. While driving away, an evil force comes before their car and they meet with an accident. Curious, Kabir calls a tantrik, who discovers an evil spirit in the house. He claims that the spirit is of Jaidev, who is actually dead. Realization dawns upon Kabir, and he recalls Meera speaking on the phone in a man’s voice and never seeing Jaidev in person. He sneaks into Jaidev’s room, only to find Jaidev sleeping. Furious with Kabir, Meera tells him to leave.
Kabir returns to confront Meera. She reveals that she was involved in a hit and run case two years ago and to evade imprisonment, ran away to a small town in Kashmir, where she met Jaidev, a rich industrialist. She fell in love with him and they got married. One night, she saw him performing a ritual slaughter and praying to the devil. Scared and shocked, she tried to run away but was caught by him. In a struggle to stop her, Jaidev fell from the balcony and was paralyzed below the waist. He later committed suicide and left a letter for Meera, stating that she will have to live in the house forever with his soul, and if she ever tried to run away, his lawyer was instructed to open a letter which will detail that Meera has killed him and was the culprit in the hit and run. Thus, she stays in the house with Jaidev’s soul and deludes the world into thinking her husband is still alive.
Kabir decides to steal the letter from the lawyer’s office; however, he finds that there is no lawyer – Jaidev was bluffing. After this, the two plan to set Jaidev’s spirit to rest. While they cremate his body, a painting of Jaidev smiles sadistically. He returns to haunt Meera and captures her in the painting. Kabir goes to the tantrik for help, who, it turns out, is also a spirit. The tantrik tells Kabir that the painting is a portal to the world of spirits and gives Kabir holy water. After a deadly struggle involving a butterfly and paintings of wolves, Kabir drinks a drop of Jaidev’s blood to get Jaidev’s spirit to enter his body. He then drinks holy water, which makes Jaidev’s evil spirit perish, setting Meera free.
Kabir is shown at a book launch for Khamoshiyan, his latest novel. Meera is also at the party but the two leave to spend some time alone together.
