“बेल्जियम के प्रसिद्ध आर्किटेक्ट ‘राफेल’ को राजस्थान की एक पुरानी हवेली को पांच तारा होटल में परिवर्तित करने के प्रोजेक्ट में शामिल किया जाता है। यह भूतिया महल बहुत पुराना है और इसको एक नए तरीके से संवार कर पर्यटक स्थल बनाना है जिसमे उनका साथ देते हैं भारत के आर्किटेक्ट विनोद राय। उस रात जब उनकी टीम उस हवेली में पहुँचती है तो विनोद राय का दिमाग ये जानकार सुन्न हो गया की राफेल भूतों से बात कर रहा है।”
It is a Breathtaking collection of 6 scary horror stories. I really felt scared while reading some stories from this collection. The stories in the collection are-
1. Bhoot- It is a story of a hotel in which the soul of a worker wanders inside the hotel, waiting for its revenge.
2. Achha Bhoot- It is a story of a group of youngsters who meet a ghost on their tour.
3. Kaali Billi- Its another story of revenge in which a soul, in the form of a Cat, takes her revenge from a businessman.
4. Bhootiya Mahal- In this story, a team of architects, led by the famous architect Rafael, visit a Haunted castle for its renovation and discover surprising as well as scaring things in the castle.
5. Bhoori Billi- Another revenge story, in this the ghost of a widow takes her revenge from a land-dealer, who has acquired her property illegally.
6. Haveli- It is my favourite one and the most suspenseful and unpredictable story of this collection. It is the story of a mysterious Haveli in which there are many secrets hidden. Its past is also very interesting as well as scary.
All the stories are interesting. The scary part and horror in some stories are mild while in some stories it is very high. Some stories will run a chill down your spine.
Regarding the content, 3 out of 6 stories are based on the same topic i.e. Revenge. Some stories are also not unique but written in a different way with the same plot. But the two stories, Kaali Billi & Haveli, change everything. They are the best stories in this collection with a unique plot and amazing writing style. While reading these stories I felt like that I am living inside the story and at any moment I will see a ghost in front of me.
Overall, you must read this book once if you’re a fan of horror and scary fiction or if you want some thrill in your life.
