Mahal

Hari Shankar (Ashok Kumar) comes to claim his inheritance - a palatial building known as Shabnam Mahal. He does not see anything abnormal, until he sees his portrait on the wall. On inquiring, he is told by the housekeeper, the story behind the portrait as well as the tragic ending of two lovers. Later, Hari Shankar sees a woman (Madhubala) singing in the garden swing, when he approaches, she disappears. Both the housekeeper and his lawyer friend, Shrinath (Kanu Roy), warn and ask him to stay away from this house, he does so, only to be drawn back. No one can help him now as he continues to be drawn deeper and deeper into the dark world of the ghostly apparition.
