    Hundreds of years ago witchery/witchcraft was practiced heavily in Europe, Africa and Asia. It has been found that between 11th and 19th century as many as 9 million women, suspected witches with supernatural powers, were mercilessly killed in these regions. In India, eastern and northern India had witnessed many incidents of withcrafts and witch-hunts.
    Kaalo's story is inspired by a floktale about a witch named Kallo who used to sacrifice young nubile girls for her immortality.
    Kaalo lived in Kulbhata two hundred and fifty years ago. She was killed and buried by angry villagers for sacrificing young nubile girls to satisfy her greed for immortality, but her fear lived on. Years later villagers spoke of Kaalo's sightings yet again. They claimed she was even more angry and dangerous... and she was back to finish what she left incomplete...
    Kulbhata was vacated overnight by scared villagers.
    All roads leading to Kulbhata were sealed by horrifying tales of Kaalo killing anyone who dared to enter Kulbhata... Until a bus carrying eleven passengers on its way to Kuldevi had to pass through Kulbhata.
    One of the passengers on the bus was a twelve-year-old girl named Shona (Swini Khara) who was travelling alone to spend her vacation at her grandmother's house in the neighboring village.
    Shona was clever, witty and cheerful. She soon became the life of the journey. Everyone loved her endearing manners. Especially the reclusive and reticent Sameer (Aditya Srivastav), who was traveling with a bag loaded with gun powder to blast a small hillock which would give way to a water canal for his drought hit village.
    Badly disfigured and thirsty for blood, Kaalo could smell the girl from miles away... and headed straight for the bus...
    She would kill everyone who came in her way... She had to have the girl anyhow...
    When the passengers realized they were staring into death everything changed... from being the life of the journey, Shona became their very reason for dying...
    Everyone wanted her out of the bus... Some even used her as a bait to lure Kaalo away from themselves... Human realtions changed as people fought for their survival...
    One man stood upto Shona...
    For Sameer it didn't matter if Kaalo was a creature or a witch...
    All he knew was that he has to protect Shona... And time was running out!
