Tahkhana

Synopsis: A dying Thakur Surjeet Singh bequeaths the entire estate to his son, Raghuvir, disowning the other, Dhurjan, the family's black sheep, who also indulges in black magic. The latter swears to use magical powers to usurp the estate, and even arranges the abduction of Raghuvir's daughters, Sapna and Aarti. Mangal and his men manage to apprehend Dhurjan, imprison him in a dungeon, and rescue Aarti. However, they are unable to locate Sapna, and Raghuvir gets killed. Before dying, he informs Mangal that Sapna has one of two pieces of a locket around her neck, while the other is on Aarti's, and when joined together will reveal the location of a treasure buried in a dungeon. 20 years later, Aarti and her boyfriend, Vijay, along with several others, will attempt to unearth this treasure - not realizing that they not only face betrayal from one of their own, but will also release and fall prey to an ageless and indestructible entity.

THE DUNGEON:

Dear Raghuveer Singh,

I am now very close to death

- Don't say that, father

- Yes, my son

After my death, I beg you...

Please care for my two daughters

as if they were your own

Don't let your brother, Durjan,

influence them in any way

I've bequeathed my entire property

to you

Here, Mansingh.

Read it out to him

I, Thakur Surjeet Singh,

son of Thakur Jasbir Singh

Being of sound mind...

...make this will that after I die,

the inheritor of my entire property...

...and of the treasure

hidden in the dungeon

...will be my son

Thakur Raghuveer Singh

My eldest son, Durjan,

I am ashamed to call my son

Since he lost his way in search

of black magic and sorcery

With this will I disinherit him

So, you disinherit me, old man?

As you lie here on your death bed

How dare you speak like this.

Get out of here!

I'm leaving, but be sure of one thing,

brother

You will not live to inherit

this property

And hear me out before dying,

old man!

That black magic and sorcery,

for which you disinherit me...

will be the means by which

I shall own all of your property

Go out of here,

you insolent fool!

Get out of here, I say!

Father! Father!

In spite of being buried here

these many thousands of years

this body is still alive

Whose corpse is this, Chief?

This is not a corpse

This is the Demon God,

made from sacrificial soil

Its soul has died with time

but the body lives still

Blood from a sacrificed innocent

can bring it once more to life

I will perform that sacrifice...

when I slaughter the children

of Thakur Raghuveer Singh!

Mansingh! Mansingh! Mansingh!

Raghuveer, my friend.

How did this happen?

How?

That bastard, Durjan, attacked us

along with his men

He injured me badly and kidnapped

both my daughters

What?

Mangal, take him inside

immediately

No, friend, it's too late now

I am dying

Raghuveer, my friend!

Mansingh, that wicked Durjan has

kidnapped my two young daughters

- He plans to sacrifice them

- Sacrifice?

But, why?

He wants to steal the treasure

hidden in the Dark Cave

He needs the map to find it

That treasure belongs to our ancestors,

Mansingh

- What's this?

- A map of the treasure

But only half of it

The other half is in a locket

around my eldest daughter's neck

Oh, master!

Oh, powerful ruler of the underworld

Grant me everlasting youth

and immortal life

I sacrifice to you

these innocent children...

that I may myself live

the years left to them

And thus gain long life

and finally immortality

Master! Master!

Thakur Mansingh's men

attacked us

- You must escape

- What's this?

Take the secret route out

and bring the children

Hurry up!

- Leave me

- Hurry up

Leave me. Leave me.

Leave me

Arrest this treacherous man!

Ensure no one escapes!

You traitor! You have killed my friend

Thakur Raghuveer Singh!

And to appease your Demon God,

you planned to sacrifice his children

- Tell me where they are

- I don't know

Mangal, search for them

Bind this fool with chains and

take him to the dungeon

Stop or I shoot!

Let me go. Let me go...

Sister! Sister!

Sapna! Sapna! Sapna!

Sister!

Mangal!

Mangal! Mangal!

Where is the other girl?

I could save only the younger one,

Mansingh

The elder daughter is lost

somewhere in the jungle

I couldn't find her. I couldn't find her

I see... so this is the Demon God

to whom you have dedicated your life

How many innocent lives have you

sacrificed in his evil name?

He is not evil, but the Emperor

of the dark world, Mansingh

For thousands of years, men like you

have tried to destroy him

But this Demon God made from the
