Vikram came in the Spring; Vikram saw in the Rains; but, please pause awhile, a long, long while before Vikram can finally conquer.

Vikram? A handsome youngman who has just completed his education abroad. A thoughtful youngman who prepares to take personal possession of his rich inheritance. A determined youngman in a battle of wits with his scheming step-mother. A strong young man capable of overpowering the forces of evil. And, Vikram? A romantic youngman desperately in love with Chanda.

Too much for one youngman to achieve? A pertinent question, which in turn brings us to the most baffling part of our story. Vikram, blown to eternity by a time bomb in a car that crashes down a mountain side. Vikram, man or ghost? Who appears before his horrified killers to wreak revenge; Vikram, man or ghost? Who once again takes Chanda into his passionate arms with a declaration of undying love; Vikram, the man who loves? Vikram, the ghost who seeks!

A diabolic plot. A delightful love affair. A dynamic climax, a story that gets off to a flying start (by Boeing 707), once upon a time in the month of Sawan. A love that ends happily even after in Bhadon.
