Story of Brahmarakshas started with Aparajita, a bride murdering her husband Sanjay on Poornima for his wealth in Kamalpura and throwing sindoor(vermillion) and Chuda and Maang tika at him. She pushed him from the rooftop until he fell down and got killed by a gorilla.
20 years later, the story moved forward to Srivastava family in Mumbai. Rishabh Srivastava (Aham Sharma) is a witty and carefree young man who plays a key role in unfolding the mystery incidents in Kamalpura. He was flirting with his sisters’ friends. Raina Sharma (Krystle D’Souza) is an affectionate, ambitious, graceful and elegant young woman. She is very close to her best friends, Rakhi and Ajay. She was helping Rakhi, Rishabh’s sister, dressing up for the engagement party.
Post the engagement, the groom’s family suggests Kamalpura as the destination for the wedding. Moreover, they also plan to buy the land which is already famous for its ghost stories and see it as a potential place to attract tourists. While Rakshanda Khan is the only one who senses danger, others humorously talk about Brahmarakshas, an animal possessed with human’s spirit.
Taking a local train, the entire family travels to Kamalpura . In a sequence, Rishabh and Raina miss the train at one of the stations, they also find Mishti and Shyam (Mridul Das) off the train (married 6 months before, they get off the train deliberately to spend some time together). The two couples take to the jungle, considered an unsafe route, to reach Kamalpura. While Rishabh and Raina reach safely due to the ‘kamal’ given to Raina by the driver of the cab, Mishti and Shyam, in all innocence, go to the cursed haveli for spending a night. The owner of the haveli lets them stay for a night, but on seeing Mishti in all the accessories adorned by the newly-weds, he turns into a brahmarakshas. Killing the two, he possesses Shyam’s body and is now out in the open, acting as a danger to the family who has arrived for the wedding in the village. The Brahmarakshas is no one else but Aparajita’s husband.
