In the lush forests of Sakleshpura, a tribal man dies under mysterious circumstances, his body branded with words in an ancient Kannada script, and only the eerie silhouette of a young woman to be seen. Nearby, in modern-day Bangalore’s concrete jungle, Neel, young, handsome and till now carefree, uneasily wonders if his friends on the party circuit are playing a prank on him -- his penthouse reeks of charred flesh, and he thought he saw a young woman out of the corner of his eye. Meanwhile, at the other end of the Sakleshpura forest reserve, newly-married Shivaranjini experiences a devastating siezure, emerging with a terrifying new personality. What are the mysterious forces at work here and how are all these things related? How does an audacious kidnapping investigated by a svelte police officer fit in? Is it a case of paranormal activity, as believed by the beautiful Tara, or something much less sinister? Neel and his friends are caught up in the vortex of these seemingly unrelated events, until the day they unravel the truth — and discover the revenge of Kaivalya.
