The film received universal critical acclaim and was also a huge commercial success. Subsequently the film also attained cult status in Hindi cinema. Vidya Balan's performance in the film is still considered iconic and regarded as one of her best to date.


Badrinath Chaturvedi (Manoj Joshi) heads a Brahmin family whose ancestral palace in Rajasthan is believed to be haunted by the ghost of Manjulika, a Bengali classical dancer. Siddharth Chaturvedi (Shiney Ahuja) and His wife Avni (Vidya Balan), the son and daughter-in-law of Badri's elder brother, return to their native village from the United States and decide to stay in their ancestral palace.


This leads to Siddharth's childhood love interest Radha (Ameesha Patel), who is Badri's adopted daughter, feeling heartbroken but she immediately recovers. Siddharth is crowned as the king, his right to the throne.
